Not only are Christmas cookies a fun tradition to enjoy with the kids, they also just taste amazing!
But, realistically, who’s going to be eating Santa’s cookies all night? ??????
Right… so, therefore, we better make some healthy Christmas cookies so that we don’t fall off track even before Christmas dinner hits!
These cookies are super easy and quick to make, so no excuses!
By the way, the dough is definitely a sticky dough that’s a little tricky to handle. I recommend wetting your hands a little bit when handling the dough. If you want to make your life a million ties easier, just use a cookie scoop and don’t touch the dough at all 😉
Healthy Christmas Cookies Recipe
Ingredients for Healthy Christmas Cookies
- 2 1/2 cups organic almond flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp saigon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup raw, creamy almond butter (a runny one works best)
- 3/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Directions for Healthy Christmas Cookies
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry while stirring. Make sure it is fully combined. (P.S: It’s normal for the dough to be sticky)
Using your hands, roll the dough, about 1 tbsp at a time, into a ball and place on the parchment lined baking sheet. If you like thin cookies, press it down a bit after placing on sheet. (If you wet your hands a little bit, it will be easier to work with the sticky dough).
Continue until all the dough has been used. (Make sure you are leaving space, between the balls of though, for the cookies to spread)
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they are starting to firm up on the outside. Remember that ovens vary so you may need more or less time, just be sure to check on it.
Optional: Roll in a bit of coconut sugar.
