What’s better than Christmas Cookies?  Healthy Christmas cookies, that’s what. And in our house, that means Gluten-free Christmas Cookies and this post is full of them.

In fact, most of the cookies in this post are Grain-free Christmas Cookies too, so if you’re off of grains, or limiting them, you’re in luck.

And since we’re watching carbs, I’m giving low carb options for as many of the cookies as possible and AIP options where possible.
