    7 Healthy Christmas Cookies That Will Shock Your Taste Buds

    Healthy Christmas Cookies Recipes

    As a little girl, one of my fondest memories was of my grandma (Omi) spending weeks before Christmas baking all sorts of German cookies and stashing them throughout her house so my grandma (Papa) wouldn’t find them! In keeping with the spirit of baking a diverse spread of Christmas cookies, here are 7 healthy recipes that will leave your taste buds (and waistlines) happy and healthy this Christmas season!

    Gingerbread Cookies

    Here’s a healthier take on gingerbread cookies. Rather than use brown sugar for sweetening, this recipe calls for molasses, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Get the kids involved and have some fun dressing up your gingerbread men and women!

    Sugar Cookie Bars

    Why not put sugar cookies into bar form? This recipe gives you the freedom to choose granulated and “sticky” sweeteners of choice, and the good news is, it doesn’t call for too much. On top of it, you’ll be able to get away with sneaking in some protein powder!

    Chocolate Coconut Truffles

    If you’re a lover of chocolate and coconut, than these truffles are for you! The recipe calls for vegan sources of chocolate, but if you aren’t a vegan, I’d recommend substituting a different chocolate source. When looking for high quality, minimally processed chocolate, shoot for dark chocolate with a cacao content > 75%. As always, check your ingredients and keep the number of ingredients small and easy to read and understand.
