If you love baking during the holidays, but not so much the traditional high fat/calorie sweet treat recipes, I’ve got some ideas that you’ll want to try this year. These recipes are just as delicious as some of the old favorites, but use healthier ingredients and in some cases substitute less fat content.
Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Cookies are a delicious alternative to your usual oatmeal cookie recipe. This version uses old fashioned rolled oats, coconut oil, coconut palm sugar, dried cranberries, and walnuts in its mix. You can store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies are good any time of day. They combine old fashioned oats, quick cooking oats, coconut oil, honey, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, ground flaxseeds, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree, sea salt, and eggs. Cookies are baked in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Each cookie contains 4 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.

Pistachio Apricot Cookies have the perfect blend of sweet and salty flavor. You’ll use almond flour, coconut flour, stevia sweetener, sea salt, baking soda, egg, vanilla extract, honey, coconut oil, chopped pistachios, and chopped, dried apricots. Bake these cookies in a 350 degree oven for 13-15 minutes.
