When I see “low sugar” labels on packaged products, my eyes quickly move on. Don’t get me wrong. I do try to limit my sugar intake, but my taste buds and my stomach aren’t fans of alternative sweeteners. So I was excited by the launch of Sweet Loren’s Less Sugar Cookie Dough. It’s really their classic cookie dough (which is still available) made with 40% less sugar added. There are no substitutes and no sugar-free sweeteners. They’ve simply slashed the sugar for those who are happy with cookies that are a little less sweet.
New Sweet Loren’s Less Sugar Cookie Dough is Free of Funny Business
As mentioned, this new line is free of alternative sweeteners. But like all other Sweet Loren’s products, the lower sugar cookie dough is made without dairy, eggs, gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy. And it’s launching in two staple varieties.

Don't do it!!
The 40% less sugar version doesn’t allow the cookie to bind and has a sandpaper texture.
Good but the original is still unbeatable
The new “Less Sugar” recipe is good for store bought, buy-and-bake GFree cookies. The less sugar recipe has a gritty feel to it that the originals do not. Overall, good but not great
LOVE these cookie doughs!
I absolutely LOVE her regular-amount-of-sugar formula, Cookies!
Been happily enjoying all the flavors, for years!
SO excited to now try all the Less Sugar versions! 😊
