10 Light Holiday Cookie Ideas from GreenLiteBites

Posted Dec 20 2012 9:46am

Christmas is coming and in my house that means baking season is upon us!

One of my absolute favorite things to do is making cookies with the kids. It was one of my fondest memories as a kid.

Yup that’s me! Sick that Christmas that’s why I didn’t look too happy (accoring to mom,) but I remember loving every moment of it every year. It was something I couldn’t wait to do with my own kids.

Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a few cookie ideas that I can have fun making and feel good about eating and feeding my kids.

There’s nothing wrong with traditional cookie recipes, but making things just a little lighter and healthier is fun challenge for me. Why not try to minimize calories and maximize nutrition while indulging in holiday traditions?

I just don’t see the harm in it. If they don’t turn out than you could always fall back on the classics. I mean how many sugar cookies recipes exist anyway?

Here are 10 cookies ideas I’ve shared on GreenLiteBites. I plan on making at least 2 of these this weekend plus a new bread recipe Mom just shared. Baking starts tomorrow!
