Snow is on the ground and lights are on the trees. I just love this time of year especially now that I share it with two little ones at home. I love to invite kids in the kitchen to cook. Baking is one of the easiest ways to get them involved as they are usually excited to be the official taste testers of your finished products.
With it being holiday season and the over abundance of sweet treats I am always on the lookout for healthier options. This is a cookie I created 2 years ago in need of a cookie that my son could eat with everyone else and not have to have a “special cookie”. This healthier holiday cookie is a true winner being gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. It is a treat that tastes amazing and everyone can enjoy it together. I am honored to have one of my favorite healthier holiday cookie recipes recently featured in Kiwi Magazine .
The best part about this recipe is you can make many flavors from the one base recipe. I personally love the Almond, Cherry Chocolate (pictured at the top of the photo), Orange Chocolate Almond Apricot (pictured in the middle, add a little orange zest to make this flavor pop) and Cinnamon Pecan Raisin on the bottom of the photo. Feel free to make your own family favorite flavor.
Cooking with kids can be great but also a little messy. Get success secrets on how to make cooking with kids easy here.
