‘Tis the season for holiday baking and Christmas cookie exchanges and I have rounded up 5 “healthier” holiday cookie recipes to try this year! These recipes feature “better for you” ingredients yet still have all the comforting flavor you’re craving in a holiday cookie!!
I don’t know about you, but I have never been OK with passing up the treats that the holiday season brings and I don’t think I ever will be! Lets just say I know where the cookie tray is during the Christmas party! And somehow having a cookie for breakfast with my morning coffee is all of a sudden OK with me this time of the year. I mean really….a cookie for breakfast, its all good right- its Christmas! Anyone else with me here?!?
And while you can’t expect a cookie to be incredible healthy, you can make them with “better for you” ingredients – like the ones below – and feel a little better about the whole splurge!
So grab a cup of coffee and try 1 or all 5 of these “healthier” Holiday Cookies.
