Baking Christmas cookies is an event in my family. We bake for the sake of baking and always end up with trays beyond trays of delicious and pretty cookies that we end up giving to friends, family, neighbors, and anyone who looks like they could use a good cookie 🙂
Of course we have our family favorites that we make every year, but sometimes it’s fun to throw in some newbies.
This weekend, Brenna (my sister) and I are starting our holiday bake off and I was hoping to throw in one new-to-me cookie recipe that is a little bit healthier. I’m all about indulging every once in a while, but if I can find a cookie that tastes great and is healthier than normal then I will most certainly add it to my baking list.
Here are some cookie contenders:
Healthier Christmas Cookies
Peanut Butter Christmas Cookies from Chocolate Covered Katie
Vegan Peppermint Patties from Fit Foodie Finds
Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from ImmaEATthat
Molasses Coconut Oil Crinkle Cookies from Averie Cooks
Cranberry Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies from Healthful Pursuit
Lowfat Gingerbread Cookies from SkinnyTaste
Let’s Hear It:
- Do you have a favorite “healthy” cookie? Share the recipe below!
- Do you have a favorite cookie that is NOT necessarily healthy? I’d love to see those recipes too 🙂
