Enjoy a healthier holidays with these 10 healthy Christmas cookie recipes!
I know, I know…it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I’m already writing about healthy Christmas cookie recipes?!
I’m of the opinion that fall must be savored and celebrated for as long as possible, and Thanksgiving must be over before Christmas decorations come out.
But…I know many families enjoy spending Thanksgiving Day baking together. With that fact in mind, I hope this round-up of 10 healthy Christmas cookie recipes will arm you with a variety of cookies to try.
Some of these are old favorites that I enjoy baking; others have come highly-recommended by some of my blogging colleagues.
10 Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipes
I must admit: The first Christmas my children were gluten, egg and dairy-free, I felt frustrated and even sad that I didn’t think we would be able to bake the classic Christmas cutout cookies!
This recipe for allergy-friendly Christmas cutout cookies hits the spot–both in taste and functionality.
These are Sara’s version of homemade lactation cookies. Don’t worry–the whole family can eat them. They are super nutritious, and they are gluten-free!
I came up with this recipe a few years ago when I was wanting a no-fuss, no-cook truffle recipe to take to a party. These are so easy to whip up and oh-so-chocolaty!
I really should have called these snowballs. They are just as easy to make as the triple chocolate truffles, but they are perfect for those who love peanut butter but aren’t big on chocolate.
Here’s another yummy-looking, super nutritious cookie recipe that’s gluten-free! This one’s from Titus 2 Homemaker.
These cookies from Home with Purpose are a healthy alternative to sugar cookies. They are not gluten-free, but they are perfect for those of you who can tolerate wheat.
These are not exactly cookies…but they are oh.so.yummy. Seriously, I like these better than Reese’s! They’re gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and chock full of healthy coconut oil.
Pumpkin: It’s where it’s at! But seriously, pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors ever! I’ve been eating a pumpkin cream smoothie nearly every day this fall! If I were not gluten-free, I’d love to give these pumpkin cookies from Live Renewed a try. For those who can tolerate wheat, they look amazing!
She had me at oatmeal. Or maybe it was at peanut butter. Or chocolate. Or maybe it’s just the fact that this recipe only takes 20 minutes–or that it’s both gluten and refined sugar free! Regardless, this recipe from Red and Honey is calling my name!
Pumpkin + Peanut Butter + Chocolate. This cookie recipe was a match made in heaven! Diana from My Humble Kitchen took three of my favorite flavors and created a whole wheat, honey-sweetened cookie that will have your family begging for more.
