This post should be titled “Healthier” Christmas cookie roundup, but it didn’t have quite the same ring to it. I love baking during the Holidays, it is one of my favorite ways to spend time with my boys. We love to bake a new cookie recipe nearly everyday leading up to Christmas. It is so much fun trying a variety of new treats and then delivering little sample packages to all of our neighbors.
I am all for the occasional splurge on a sugary treat, but since we want to bake everyday during our Christmas break I really wanted some healthier options. So what’s a girl to do? Pinterest of course!
I spent all day looking at Pinterest, for all different kinds of healthier cookie recipes and gathered them into this one post. There is something for everyone, I have even included gluten and dairy free options. Full disclosure: I have not tried every recipe in this post, I simply gathered up some cookie recipes, from some of my favorite food bloggers.
I hope you enjoy these recipes, make sure to let me know which ones you try and don’t forget to check out my Beginners Guide: To Healthier Holiday Baking for tips on how to make your own Holiday favorites a little healthier.
