It's cookie baking season! Trying not to over-indulge during the holiday season is so much easier now with this list of 18 delicious recipes for healthy Christmas cookies!
It's that time of year! The holiday season is upon us, which for me means lots (and lots) of cookie baking.
I absolutely adore making cookies; I find them to be one of the most rewarding things to bake. Not only are cookies easy and ready in about 15 minutes, but they're also pre-portioned for you and make an excellent edible gift.
As classic cookies tend to not be the healthiest option out there (hello butter & sugar!), I wanted to share some of my favorite healthy options with you. Because yes, it is 100% possible to make delicious, indulgent, nutritious, delicious cookies!
So today I've rounded up some of absolute favorite healthy Christmas cookies for you! Many of these recipes are from SQ, but I've also included recipes from some of my favorite bloggers as well. The more the merrier!
There's sure to be something for everyone on this list, so don't forget to pin this post so that you can come back to this list repeatedly!
Our Must-Try Healthy Christmas Cookies
Gingerbread Cookies (Vegan & GF)
These Vegan Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies are a healthy spin on a classic holiday treat. Easy to roll out, made with real ingredients, and topped with vegan icing too!
These healthy peanut butter blossoms are a fun, lower-calorie twist on this classic recipe. With quick-cooking oats for fiber and protein powder for extra punch, these cookies are light, flavorful, and delicious!
Biscotti is a traditional Italian baked good that will forever remind me of Christmas. A family friend makes them every year and delivers two bags to my house around Christmas time. I usually opt for nutty chocolate flavors, but I had some meyer lemons in my fridge that were just screaming to be used.
These vegan snickerdoodles use one bowl and 8 ingredients. This healthy snickerdoodle recipe is also gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo too! Perfect for the holidays, easy to make, and can be made nut-free as well!
