I’ve carried on my Grandmother’s tradition of Christmas baking, and while the recipes have changed, the spirit is the same: share love, homemade gifts and enjoy sweet treats with your nearest and dearest. Here are four favorite holiday cookie recipes from the Vibrant Wellness Journal archive to brighten your day today, tomorrow and all season long.
Our favorite recipes feature a mix of gluten-free flours, alternative flours, and a mess of other healthy ingredients like nut butters, dark chocolate, and flaxseeds! Each recipe is easy to make and guaranteed to bring smiles all around.
Teff Ginger Molasses Cookies (interesting ingredients for a wildly delicious cookie with classic flavors!)
Mostly Raw Hazelnut Cakes (ok, not really a cookie, but easy and festive! Swap out the nuts for what you have at home, and play with flavors: add crushed candy canes atop the cakes to make it more Christmas-y)
Cinnamon Almond Cookies (the best quick cookie recipe: try with chai spices, mint, cherry or many other flavor variations!)
Bonus Recipe: Vegan Sugar Cookies (classic and simple, get those cookie cutters ready! This is a vegan version of what we made each year as kids!)
Ok… one more bonus: here’s some more Christmas recipes to keep your sweet tooth happy!
