The holidays are known for overeating, especially when it comes to sweets like cookies. But there’s good news: you can still indulge in all your favorite holiday treats and festivities without feeling guilty, and even while sticking to your diet. The key is to simply opt for low sugar cookies and natural sugar cookies.
Maxine’s Heavenly cookies are the perfect low sugar, guilt free cookies for this holiday season.
Here are three reasons to choose these delicious natural sugar cookies:
1. Maxine’s Heavenly Cookies are Actually Low in Sugar
Many brands advertise that they are low in sugar, but sneak in a bunch of artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. We do no such thing (see our next point below). Yet our cookies have half the sugar content of traditional cookies.
Why opt for low sugar cookies? A few reasons. Excessive sugar makes food hyper-palatable, causing many people to overeat. Lots of refined sugar can also rapidly spike your blood sugar, causing the infamous sugar high and subsequent energy crash.
2. Maxine’s Heavenly Cookies Use Natural Sugars
Not only is there less sugar in our cookies, but the little sugar that our cookies do contain is natural sugar. While traditional cookies are made with refined, bleached white flour and brown sugar, we use coconut sugar and dates instead.
We use coconut sugar and dates because they are:
- Easy on your body
- Sourced sustainably
These natural sugars are also much healthier for a variety of reasons. Primarily, it’s because coconuts and dates are real, whole, natural foods in and of themselves. Other common sweeteners like stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol are not natural, contain no nutrients, and aren’t well-digested by many people.

3. Maxine’s Heavenly Cookies Use Real, Wholesome Ingredients
It’s not just our sugars that are all-natural. All of our cookies use natural, plant-based ingredients you can pronounce, like whole grain oats. This also gives our cookies a more filling and satisfying quality - so there’s no need to overeat.
Since the cookies are made from whole foods they fit perfectly into many diets and lifestyles, including:
- Gluten free
- Dairy free
