It’s Christmas cookie time! Is there any time quite like Christmas cookie time? We sure don’t think so! Somehow they just taste better during the holiday season.
If you have seen many of our posts you probably have noticed that we really like healthy treats (as seen in Clean Eating Banana Cream Pie, Poppy Seed Bread and Guilt Free Peanut Butter Cookies). There is never any reason to eliminate treats as long as they have pure and wholesome ingredients. Dessert is one of the things that makes life (and the holidays) more lovely.
One of the ways we keep treats healthy is by using whole wheat flour instead of highly processed and bleached white flour. This article talks a lot more about the benefits. It’s a great read!
Another way to keep treats healthy is to keep them low in sugar. This is were honey comes in! Unlike sugar, honey actually helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Coconut oil and cacao are both super foods and pure, pasture raised butter is a healthy fat. With all those good ingredients it’s easy to see what a good treat these cookies really are.
If you follow us on Facebook and Instagram (or if you’ve read our Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball) you know how excited we are about our new Kitchen Aid. We put it to work on these cookies and it really made our life even more easy peasy! If you don’t have a Kitchen Aid or mixer like it, don’t worry, they will still taste great mixed by hand.
Christmas Crinkle Cookies
- 1 cup honey
- ½ cup butter
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup cacao
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tbs. vanilla
- 3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. Real Salt
- organic powdered sugar for rolling
Combine all ingredients in a KitchenAid or Bosch type mixer. Mix well. This dough is more wet than regular cookie dough. Chill the dough for 6 hours or over night. After chill time, scoop out and shape into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 350º for 10-12 minutes until tops are crackled. Cool on a cooling rack.
