Around the holidays it can be so easy to just ‘cheat’ on eating healthy. But! Then you end up paying the price later with added weight, inflammation, and feeling ‘icky’ overall. However, there are options to still enjoy eating treats without totally forgoing your health goals. The first 5 are from my own archive and the last five are from some of my favorite other healthy recipe blogs. I hope you will love these cookies for years to come! So, without further ado, here are my Top 10 Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipes:
Number 1: Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Up first is one of my personal favorites, Chocolate Peppermint Cookies! These cookies are a better alternative than other cookie options because they are gluten-free, low-sugar, and vegan. They can even be made entirely sugar-free if you’d like! I recommend trying them sugar-free, especially since there are so many sugar alternatives you can use.
Number 2: Sunbutter Cookies
These Sunbutter Cookies offer a great option for someone with a peanut allergy. So not only are they Nut-Free, but also Gluten-Free and Vegan. And what is Sunbutter? Sunbutter comes from sunflower seeds and can be found in most grocery stores and on Amazon. This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make!
