Eggnog is one of my winter favorites, so I created two eggnog flavored recipes to enjoy this holiday.
And it’s the perfect pair to leave for Santa. I’m making a plant-based oatnog using homemade oat milk and eggnog flavors. And they go great with my nutty oatnog sugar cookies, which use Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener to create a soft, rich sugar cookie that tastes just like eggnog.
I know I’m not the only one who loves baking for the holidays!
I consider it a form of self-care to make myself sweet treats that I can enjoy, and gift to my friends and family. Who doesn’t need a little bit of self-care during the busy holiday season?
Eggnog is one of my favorite flavors of this season. As soon as it gets cold, I’m bringing out my warm nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger for this treat.
This year, I put a twist on my eggnog and made it plant-based! I swapped traditional milk for oat milk and used Truvia Sweet Complete All-Purpose Granulated Sweetener to keep it sweet without the added calories or sugar.
Those same flavors translate over to my Oatnog Sugar Cookies, which use similar ingredients, and a little more Truvia Sweet Complete for a memorable little cookie!
You can get the recipe for my oatnog here. You’ll need it for making the oatnog sugar cookies.
How to make oatnog sugar cookies:
I love this cookie because when you bite into it, it actually tastes like eggnog!
Hey! A quick note before you start reading!
I’m Mila Clarke, The Hangry Woman! I help people like myself living with diabetes find our strength and feel less shame and loneliness, so we can face diabetes head-on without fear, or judgment.

Start with our wet ingredients. I’ll cream together with my butter and Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener until it’s fully incorporated, and becomes a little deeper in color.
Truvia Sweet Complete Sweeteners are made with stevia and they bake and browns in recipes. I also love how uncomplicated they are to bake with because they measure cup for cup like their sugar counterparts in recipes.
Then I’ll add my vanilla paste, egg, and a tiny bit of that oatnog I just made for added flavor. If you don’t have homemade oatnog, store-bought is fine. You can also just buy plain, unsweetened oat milk, and add cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to it for a similar flavor.
Then I’ll slowly add in my mixed in dry ingredients. These are my flour, baking soda, and all of my spices. Those will slowly incorporate until the dough forms a ball in the bowl.
After that, I’ll wrap them in some plastic wrap, and let the dough chill for about 20 minutes.
Then, we’ll form them into balls, roll them in a little more Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated Sweetener, and pop them in the oven at 350 for 12 minutes. Once they come out of the oven, I like to flatten them a bit with my spatula and let them cool completely.
If you want to avoid flattening them, you roll the dough out flat, and use a cookie cutter, to cut out your favorite shapes, and bake them that way.
