WHY MAKE A COOKIE WITHOUT BUTTER
There are various reasons why someone might want to make cookies without using butter. Firstly, health concerns could be a factor. Butter is high in saturated fats, which can increase cholesterol levels and lead to heart disease. Therefore, people may choose to substitute it with healthier alternatives.
Climate change and environmental concerns could also motivate someone to make cookies without using butter. Dairy farming is a leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and so those looking to reduce their carbon footprint may seek out alternative ingredients.
Religion can also play a role in the decision to avoid using butter. For example, in Jewish dietary law, dairy and meat products should not be mixed, and so those who adhere to this tradition may choose to make a dessert without using butter.
In terms of ethics and animal rights, some people may choose to avoid butter as it is a dairy product that comes from cows, and some believe that the production of dairy products involves animal cruelty and exploitation.
THE BEST COOKIE RECIPES MADE WITHOUT BUTTER
It is definitely possible to make cookies without butter by using substitutes. We have created recipes that use nut oils or nuts. Nut oils such as almond, walnut or cashew oil provide a rich and nutty flavor that can give your cookies a unique twist. Meringue cookies are made with egg whites and sugar, creating a light and airy texture that is perfect for those who are looking for a healthier alternative to buttery cookies. Adding nuts to the meringue give the cookies an extra chewy texture. With these substitutes, you can still enjoy delicious cookies without sacrificing flavor or texture.
