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 awesome edible gift.

As classic cookies tend to not be the healthies option out there (hello butter & sugar!), I wanted to share some of my favorite healthy options for you. Because yes it is 100% possible to make delicious, indulgent cookies that are also nutritious!

So today I've rounded up 18 of my 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 over and over again!
