5 Healthier Holiday Cookie Recipes

Food & Recipes, Holidays & Parties | December 2, 2015

‘Tis the season for delicious homemade baked goods! But for those who follow gluten-free or vegan diets or have a lactose intolerance, it can be tough to find treats to enjoy. So we consulted some of our favorite better-for-you Moms Meet brands (all sampled by our Mom Ambassadors!) to find recipes that meet the needs of all your guests. Happy holidays from everyone at Moms Meet!

1. Double Chocolate Medallion Coconut Flour Cookies

These gluten-free medallion cookies are made using whole ingredients and MELT Organic chocolate spread, which contains a blend of healthy oils that boost your metabolism and provide a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids. To find the chocolate spread that our Mom Ambassadors sampled, visit MELT’s store locator. Click here for the recipe.

 

 

2. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies add a vegan twist to a traditional favorite, using the trusted King Arthur Flour brand. You can feel good knowing that all King Arthur flours are unbleached and non-GMO—which is something our moms loved! Click here for the recipe.

 

 

 

3. Lemon Kefir Cookies

These delicious and refreshing lemon cookies are made with Green Valley Organics lactose-free kefir. When our Mom Ambassadors tried another product in the same Green Valley Organics family, those with a lactose intolerance enjoyed receiving the benefits of yogurt without the stomachache! The kefir includes ten live and active cultures, and is even certified humane. Click here for the recipe.

 

4. Snickerdoodles

This cinnamon sugar cookie, a holiday favorite, is made with Sugar in the Raw. The sugar is never bleached, allowing it to retain the natural richness of its flavor and color. Sugar in the Raw mixes and blends exactly like white sugar in recipes. The In the Raw family of products is a favorite among our Mom Ambassadors! Click here for the recipe.

 

5. Molasses Crinkle Cookies

These festive molasses cookies nearly twinkle on the plate and pack a flavorful kick! They are made using stone-ground Bob’s Red Mill whole-wheat pastry flour, which adds nutritional value not typically found in desserts. Mom Ambassadors consistently give Bob’s Red Mill flour stellar reviews, one mom even claiming the Bob’s Red Mill product line changed the way she eats and feeds her family!
