Many of us look forward to the holiday season all year long. What’s not to love about celebrating with friends and family, eating delicious holiday food, sharing the joy, and giving and receiving presents?! There is nothing better, right? 

My favorite part of the holidays is definitely Christmas cookies (as most of you know from my infamous story — my wakeup call came when my grandma slapped my hand to stop me from mindlessly eating her fresh-baked cookies), but the key is to make them healthy Christmas cookies. 

We all want to enjoy the holidays without packing on extra pounds, and that is exactly why I’ve gathered some of my favorite healthy cookie recipes for you to save and enjoy. 

There are so many healthy cookie recipes out there, it’s just a matter of choosing which healthy Christmas cookies you want to make! 

The wonderful thing about the healthy cookie recipes included here is that they don’t have all that added butter and sugar, but they still taste one hundred percent yummy (and they are EASY to make!) 

You see, you don’t have to go over the top with calories and excess junk to make things taste amazing, you just have to have a great healthy cookie recipe.
