25 Healthy & Easy Christmas Cookies from paleo to vegan to classic! This is a round-up of my own Banana Diaries recipes to some of my favorite bloggers’!
I don’t know about you, but I, for one, have been quite obsessed with all of the Christmas cookies this year! To be honest, a little jealous of the big man in the red suit 😉
It’s been quite the busy season over in the Banana Diaries kitchen! I feel a little bit like the North Pole, cranking out Christmas cookies recipes and getting everything ready in time for YOU to enjoy because that’s what makes me happiest! Seeing everyone share these recipes and fall in love with them like I did.
Because food is meant to be celebrated and enjoyed, not scorned, feared, and shamed. That goes for you too 😉
Which is why I want to remind you that when you’re making these cookies, make them with love. Ever wonder why Grandma’s recipes tasted so good? That’s the reason. Think back to the times when everyone would say grace before a meal. What they were doing was expressing gratitude for the meal they were about to consume, as well as other things and people in their lives. I think we’ve lost that, especially around this time of year when it seems like people are more concerned about their waistlines and bank accounts rather than the act of giving and receiving with gratitude.
Which is why I’ve compiled not only my favorite Christmas cookies from my own kitchen, but also from the kitchens of some of my favorite bloggers and friends. Spreading the love is the name of the game this season after all! We have Christmas cookies ranging from the classics to completely paleo to vegan to even some allergy-friendly nut-free recipes! Take a look through and have a wonderful holiday season 🙂 Enjoy!
