This past week, I shared a collection of 20 Healthy Christmas Cookies over at The Better Mom.
Honestly, there were so many great healthy cookie recipes to choose from, I started another collection to share here.
Now you really have no excuse to make this year’s sweet selection one that will not add on the pounds so easily.
With these wonderful cookies (and a few other treats included, you and your loved ones can indulge a bit with a little less “food guilt.”
Raw Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Macaroons from Civilized Caveman
Raw means “No Bake”. Which I love. Less work. Less time. And in the summer who wants to heat up the kitchen :-)!
Peppermint Bark Cookies (grain free & vegan) from Real Sustenance
Brittany has been cranking out loads of cookies and treats this month. Hop on over to see more of her work!
Coconut Cream Shortbread from Cucina Libera
I just love this blog too. These cookies remind me of the traditional peanut butter cookies, but made with coconut cream.
Use my Homemade Coconut Butter for these!
Soft Molasses Cookies (gluten free & vegan) from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen
I love this blog’s approach to cooking.
Butter Spritz Cookies from Nouveau Raw
Amie Sue has amazing raw creations. Aren’t these beautiful?
Almond Butter Pumpkin Pie Truffles (grain free) from Slim Palate
The blogger at Slim Palate is only 16! He’s got a great blogging future in ahead!
My Homemade Liquid Stevia Drops would work great in these.
Sub in another nut if need be!
If you can’t have dates, try a ground chia mix with extra candida-friendly sweetener.
Of course, any nut or seed butter will work. Check out my post on Homemade Nut or Seed Butter.
These cookies / candies–whatever you wish to call them–are just incredible. I can’t keep them in our house longafter they are made.
And they are super simple and oven-free, which will be great when the summer months roll around.
A little drizzle of my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips would make them just right.
We think they taste amazingly like Enjoy Life brand boxed cookies :-)!
For those who love chocolate chippers, these are a much healthier version! You can even use my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips for these.
Tons of whole grains in these.
I just love Ricki’s work. These Bon Bons are delicious!
DIY Liquid Stevia for this recipe too!
The dates are high sugar, but these looked so wonderful I had to share them!
I just had to share these as well. YUM!
Richa’s creations are quite imaginative. Hop over to see more!
A simple drizzle makes almost any cookie look special.
One of our long time favorites. If you haven’t tried them yet, you should :).
Thumbprints are always a favorite this time of year.
You can use my Homemade Coconut Butter in these as well!
Biscotti means “twice baked”. That’s what makes these so nicely crispy!
Hot Chocolate Drop Cookies from Fresh 4 Five
These look super festive!
Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies (vegan) from Oatmeal with a Fork
Chocolate. Chocolate. and More Chocolate.
My kids are now begging me to make naturally colored sprinkles!

Oreos without a several year expiration date :-).
