There is nothing more fun than shaping your cookies into adorable snowmen, Christmas trees, stars, and gingerbread men. I love feeling like a kid again and taking some time out of this busy season to bake and make these cute shapes. I’ve given you two options for these cookies: you can use whatever cookie cutters you have, or you can make them into regular circular cookies. Totally your choice.

I couldn’t choose between oat and almond flour because they are both so great to bake with. So I figured, why not use both?

These Almond Oat Sugar Cookies are super simple to make. They’re sweetened with honey, have a touch of cinnamon, and don’t have a ton of ingredients. They will be the perfect addition to your holiday baking or your Christmas celebration.

Full disclosure: I’ve been adding butter back into my diet these days, and I’m totally fine with it. So I made these cookies with butter, making them gluten-free and healthy, but not strictly dairy-free. If you want to make them totally dairy-free, you can sub coconut oil.
