***YUMMM….DON’T THESE LOOK YUMMY?***
I’M GOING TO TRY SOME OF THESE HEALTHIER, HOLIDAY COOKIE RECIPES.
REBLOGGED FROM: SIFT, STIR & SAVOR. THANKS FOR SHARING!
HAPPY BAKING! :<)
Last year I was obsessed with eggnog. This year I’m obsessed with cookies.
So when I was asked to be a part of a healthy christmas cookie round-up that Sandra from Candida Diet Plan was organizing, I was pretty excited! Sandra was able to organize 18 different bloggers, which means there are 18 scrumptious cookies to drool over. And these aren’t just any cookies, these are healthy cookies- virtually all of the recipes are gluten-free and loads of them are also grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free and vegan. So, what are you waiting for? Here are the links to all of the cookies:
Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies (Candida Free Candee)
Dark Chocolate Truffle Cookies (Tessa the Domestic Diva)
Macadamia Coconut Cookies (Candida Diet Plan)
No-Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies (Gluten-Free Cat)
Jungle Balls (Carrie on Vegan)
Raw Gingerbread Men (Om Nom Ally)
Chocolate Orange Gogi Cookies (Coconut and Berries)

***WITH THE U.S .THANKSGIVING COMING UP THIS WEEK, I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD TIME TO REBLOG THIS POST FROM A FEW YEARS AGO.***
I THINK IT’S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE TAKE A TIME OUT NOW AND THEN, TO REALLY DWELL ON ALL WE HAVE TO BE THANKFUL FOR IN OUR LIVES.
AND ALSO, TO THINK ABOUT ALL THOSE PEOPLE IN NEED AND TO HELP OUT AS MUCH AS WE CAN.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO MY U.S. FRIENDS AND HAPPY WEEK TO ALL. :<)
I’ve been on a bit of a ‘cookie-crave’ lately, don’t know why but I hope it’s not permanent LOL.
For the most part, desserts of any type are one food ‘group’ I can usually resist. Exception: chocolate, of course. But then, that kind of goes without saying, right? 🙂
So, what’s the best answer if the Cookie Monster comes to call LOL!! Make cookies with lots of nutritious ingredients, natch.
These Kid’s Choice Cookies from my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians and are chock-full of goodies and lower in sugar than most ‘kitchen sink’ type cookie recipes I’ve tried in the past (recipe to follow at the end of this post). Do let me know if you give this recipe a try!!!
I made this batch yesterday with dried cranberries instead of the usual raisins, in keeping with the Thanksgiving spirit.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, Joe and I…

As you can see above Gingerbread Man is weighted down big time with cookies at the moment! 😉 That didn’t last long though, these cookies disappeared fast from his ample belly!
I’m a big fan of wheat germ in all kinds of baking.
Wheat germ is a concentrated source of iron, B and E vitamins and protein. Also contains several trace minerals. Tastes great too.
What’s not to love? 🙂
I’ve made these Wheat Germ Cookies from the King Arthur flour site many times and they are consistently delish.
And oh so easy to make. The “hit” of nutmeg makes all the difference, don’t leave it out!
As with most recipes, I did a bit of personal tweaking:
-I toasted the wheat germ slightly, before using.
-Added a 1/2 C. of toasted coconut to the mix.
-I rounded the whole wheat flour to 1 C.
-Cut back on the sugar to 1/2 C.
-Made larger cookies, about 30.
All optional changes the recipe is good just as given on their site too.
