Healthy Holiday Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

These Chocolate Peppermint Truffles are made with chocolate ganache–coconut milk and dark chocolate—along with peppermint and some candy cane pieces. YUM! 

Swedish Rye Cookies

Powder-kissed and pretty, these Swedish Rye cookies are perfect for holiday cookie enthusiasts who are after a not-too-sweet, shortbread-style butter cookie made from a Rye flour blend.

Vegan Peppermint Patty Slice

Instead of cashew butter, you can use 1 1/4 cups (180 g) of soaked raw cashews. Soak them in boiled water for 1 hour, rinse, drain, and add them to a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix) along with the rest of the ingredients. If your blender has a hard time blending nuts smooth, I suggest that you use the raw cashew butter version instead. You can also use homemade raw cashew butter. To make your own, simply process raw cashews in a heavy-duty food processor until smooth. I don’t recommend using roasted cashew butter as it gives the slice a strong nutty flavor.

Crisp & Chewy Amaretti Holiday Cookie

The Amaretti cookie is simplicity at it’s finest. Consisting of 5 ingredients (naturally GF and DF), the easy to follow the method and of course the shot of Amaretto liqueur, I decided to try my luck at our holiday cookie exchange with this recipe and received nothing but warm remarks. Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, these Amaretti Cookies are truly heartfelt and are the ultimate holiday cookie recipe and bonus? You can serve them year-round at brunch, tea parties, or special occasions and make for the ultimate thinking of you, just because or token gift. Or if you’re feeling risky, we’re sure Santa wouldn’t mind a few boozy cookies in between the classic ginger and shortbreads of the night.

Gingerbread Man Cookies

A delicious, traditional tasting, yet healthier gingerbread cookie recipe that includes white whole wheat flour, more assertive spices, and less refined sweeteners. You wont miss the traditional version. They are very cute on popsicle sticks.
