Healthy Christmas Cookies 2013 Roundup

I am very happy to be taking part in the Healthy Christmas Cookies 2013 Roundup hosted by Sandra of Candida Diet Plan. What a special treat—pun intended—to be included in a roundup that focuses on healthier treats during a time of year when it’s hard not to get carried away in an “excess is best” mindset.

There are 18 recipes in this roundup. As Sandra says these cookie recipes are:  “Anything from classic Sugar Cookies (just without the sugar hah!) to Oreo Cookies with a healthy (and very colourful!) twist. From Double Chocolate to totally nutty. ;-) Virtually all the recipes are gluten free and a good amount are also grain free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, and vegan.”

I shared my Flourless Triple Nut (or Seed) Brownies, which are gluten free, grain free, paleo, and vegan. You will find lots of other great choices in Sandra’s roundup because only three of the recipes are not gluten free as written. One of those would easily be made gluten free by using certified gluten-free oats/oat flour. The other two could *probably* easily be converted to gluten free by substituting gluten-free flours and adding some binder if needed. Let us know if you give a gluten-free version of those a go!

    Thanks for the roundup; per usual, I have no idea which of these looks most delicious. And you have perfect timing, because my mom just shared her gluten-free Christmas Pinterest board with me. Must get pinning!
