Sugar Free Cookies Recipes Children

Kids love baking and nothing is more fun than making biscuits or cookies. These quick sugar free recipes help create biscuits that are healthier options than those packed with high quantities of white sugar.

As you make them with your children, explain what you are doing and how the sugar has been substituted. Encourage your youngsters to experiment a little and to have fun as they bake.

Sugar Free Chocolate Cookies

Everyone loves chocolate cookies. Those youngsters who enjoy a stronger chocolatey flavour can always increase the amount of cocoa in the recipe.


  • 350g (12oz) plain flour
  • 100g (3.5oz) cocoa
  • 250g (9oz) soft margarine
  • One tsp baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • Three tbsps sugar free strawberry jam
  • Two eggs


Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Take your sugar free strawberry jam and cream in a large bowl with your margarine, until light and fluffy. Beat your eggs and stir into your margarine and sugar free jam. Sieve your plain flour and bicarbonate of soda, and stir in until you have a good chocolatey dough. Dust a surface with flour and roll your dough out. Using a circular cookie cutter, cut into round shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and position in the centre of your oven. Bake for about 15 minutes.

Sugar Free Cut Outs

This kids’ recipe makes basic biscuits that can be decorated at a later stage. It creates a good dough that should withstand being cut into different shapes using a variety of cutters.


  • 175g (60z) soft margarine
  • Three tbsps honey
  • Two egg yolks
  • 250g (9oz) self-raising flour
  • Splash of full-fat milk


Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Melt your honey and butter in a small pan. Leave to cool. Then beat your eggs and stir in. Sieve and add your self-raising flour until you have a dough you can easily roll out. If necessary, add a little full fat milk. Using whichever cookie cutters your children like, cut the dough into shapes. Position on a greased baking sheet and place in the centre of your over. Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

Sugar Free Fingers

This makes for a softer biscuit, something younger children might enjoy. Food colouring can be added for fun, to add interest as the children mix.


  • 250g (9oz) butter
  • Three tbsps sugar free apricot jam
  • One egg
  • 150g (5oz) self-raising flour
  • 100g (3.5oz) plain flour
  • Food colouring (optional)


Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Beat your butter and sugar free jam together until light and creamy. Add a drop of food colouring or two if the youngsters want to. Beat your egg separately then add. Sieve your flours and then add. Spoon into a greased 18cm baking tray and bake for 20 minutes in the centre of the oven until a skewer comes out clean. Remove, leave to cool and slice into fingers. If you like, you could spread a little more sugar free jam on top.

Stop with all this 'sugar free' crap. Honey and fruit still contain sugar and your body still reacts to it the same as cane sugar. Honey has more calories than sugar and the vitamins are so miniscule. Using fruit to sweeten baked goods and putting them in the oven, just kills off the vitamins due to the heating process.

The sugar free fingers turned out more like cake than cookies but my kids loved them and so did I. I used 4 generous table spoons of Henry Jones & Co fruit and chia jam. delicious. Thank you.

These are dry! Extremely dry and feel as if they are missing something(not just sugar). After I discovered the taste(or lack of) and the dry texture I added some cranberries and they became actually edible and nice. So my advice is to add cranberries or raisins to it to avoid the dry inedible "cookie".

I am currently on an 8 week sugar free detox, craving cookies and biscuits I thought I would give these a go. I modified the recipe a bit. I used flour, milk, cinnamon, desiccated coconut, oats and a pinch of salt and my cookies came out alright. I mean they weren't the best cookies I've ever had and they were a little spicy from the cinnamon. But considering they are sugar-free they weren't that bad at all! Easy, quick and satisfy my cravings. ( :

    Re: No Sugar Sponge Cakes
    Instead of honey use xylitol. Perfect for diabetics and tastes as good as refined sugar. Add some vanilla as well for a bit of taste

    3 tbs Honey = 51 grams sugar. I'm diabetic so this recipe would be a disaster.
