Healthy Christmas Cookies
Is it even Christmas if you are not baking trays and trays of cookies?
Wether it’s for a party, for Santa or simply to eat in front of the fireplace there is always a good reason to whip up a batch of cookies during the holidays!
Whenever we have friends or family visiting around this time of the year I like to greet them with a warm cup of coffee and homemade cookies (must be my inner Bree Van De Kamp).
As you know I’ve banned any kind of refined sugars from my life years ago so I always have to come up with healthier alternatives. These cookies are made of only 4 ingredients you probably already have in your cupboards. They are crispy and the lightly sweet, nutty taste is to die for!
Ingredients (this will make around 20 small cookies)
1 cup of almond flour
3 tablespoons of grass-fed butter
1 1/2 tablespoons of raw honey
a pinch of pink Himalayan salt
The instructions are as simple as the ingredients. Just pre-heat your oven to 180 Celsius. Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl until a batter forms. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and cut your desired shapes with cookie cutters. I got mine from Maisons du Monde. Place the shapes on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, always keeping an eye on them as they are thin and could easily burn! Once the sides turn golden brown take them out and let them cool down on a tray.
If you really want to turn them into a decadent treat you could drizzle them with dark chocolate or even dip half of the cookie in it.
Let me know if you give them a try!
Happy Holidays guys!
