Benefits of low sodium cookies

Switching to low sodium cookies has many advantages, especially for those of you who are on a low-sodium diet.

Eating low sodium cookies (vs regular cookies) can lower the amount of salt in your blood, which in turn can lower your blood pressure.

What makes these cookies low sodium?

You might be asking, “what is the difference between a regular cookie and a low sodium cookie?” The answer is in the ingredients.

Obviously, this recipe doesn’t include salt, but it also uses potassium-free, salt-free baking soda and unsalted butter. By using salt-free ingredients, we are able to eliminate sodium in the final batch of cookies, making this the perfect recipe for those on a low-sodium diet. 

How to store low sodium cookies

If you made a batch of low-sodium cookies (or a few batches) and you have some leftovers, you can store them away in the freezer, refrigerator, or at room temperature.

You have to be careful, though, because storing them improperly can make the cookies stale and dry.

I recommend storing these low-sodium cookies in an airtight container, a plastic Ziplock bag, or a metal tin lined with parchment paper.

Yes, you can freeze low sodium cookie dough like you freeze normal cookie dough.

After making a batch of this cookie dough, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place balls of dough (about 1 Tbsp each) onto the sheet. Use an ice cream scooper to create perfectly shaped balls to allow the cookies to bake evenly.

Place the cookie sheet into the freezer uncovered, until frozen. Make sure the cookies are completely solid before transferring them to a freezer-safe bag.

In conclusion…

This sodium-free cookie recipe will satisfy your cookie cravings without the use of salt. 

You don’t have to sacrifice flavor to enjoy low sodium cookies (sodium-free if you use the salt-free toppings!).

Be careful when making this recipe because these cookies are tender, chewy, and so addicting!
