Whole Food Christmas Cookie Parade of Recipes

Christmastime is a wonderful time to share the gift of homemade wholesome treats! So I thought it would be super fun to share with you all a special Christmas Cookie Parade of temptingly tasty treats that no one will suspect are chock-full of wholesome ingredients!

As you’ve probably noticed, one of my favorite missions is to transform those refined food recipes that most of us grew up with into delicious whole food versions that satisfy the most discriminating sweet tooth, without compromising good nutrition!

So this fun and festive Christmas Cookie Parade features lots of familiar favorites that have been “magically” transformed (with lots of love and care) into healthier whole food versions. And best of all, each recipe has been thoroughly taste-tested and has received the “persnickety sweet tooth seal of approval” from kids and adults alike! Just further proving the fact that real food really is delicious! Enjoy!

Sharing time and traditions with family is such a blessing!
I’ll be taking a little bloggin’ break from December 15–January 1 to spend time with my family celebrating the best gift of all – our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! My prayer is that each of us will really take the time to meditate upon and celebrate His grace-filled gift to us that He may receive all of the glory and honor due Him!

Wishing you and your family a very Merry CHRISTmas and Happy & Blessed New Year!

Joyfully Serving Him, Kelly

    Thank you for sharing all your great recipes! I made your thumbprints for a cookie exchange yesterday and they were a hit! I rolled them in coconut before baking and filled them with a maple honey salted caramel. Everyone loved them! It’s so nice to have a place to find recipes that work for our family. Thanks for all your hard work!

      Oh my goodness, LOVE your idea to roll them in coconut before baking! What an awesome idea. I am going to see if Honeyville can add that to the recipe. And wow, is that a recipe you have for the maple honey salted caramel? It sounds so delectable. Please share, if so. Glad to hear they were a hit. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a kind note and share ideas. Lots of blessings to you for a very Merry CHRISTmas! :)
