Healthier Christmas Cookies
The Christmas season is packed with friends, family & ALLL the goodies! It’s December 1st and I’m feeling that festive spirit, so I whipped up some Tera’s Organic Whey versions of my favorite holiday fav, CHRISTMAS COOKIES! These cute cookies perfect for decorating parties and cookie exchanges! Plus, they’re a complete source of protein that’s organic & non-GMO ! Now that’s a smart cookie :)
Make a batch with your little ones (because whats cuter than littler helper hands!) and have them help decorate or make a dozen before friends arrive for a party and let them cool while you chat and sip your favorite holiday beverage.
3/4 cup whole wheat or oat flour
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2 eggs (whites only)
3-4 pitted dates
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
STEP 2: In a small bowl, stir together all dry ingredients.
STEP 3: In a large bowl, mix together the coconut oil and sugar until smooth. Mix in egg and pitted dates.
STEP 4: Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet.
STEP 5: On a lightly-floured surface, roll out the dough. Use cookie cutters to cut each cookie out.
STEP 6: Bake for 8-10 minutes, then let cool for at least 10 minutes.
STEP 7: For frosting to decorate, mix 1 can coconut cream with 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and 1 Tbsp. maple syrup.
Enjoy & Merry Christmas,
