‘Tis the season for Christmas treats. I love super delicious, wholesome, gluten free treats made with unrefined sugar and healthy fats. I’ve gathered up my BEST cookies, cakes and candies that are wonderful for every occasion this season.
In this collection there are cookies to share with family and friends, cakes that are perfect for a Hanukkah party or Christmas day feast and candies that make perfect edible gifts.
All 15 of these recipes are gluten free and naturally sweetened. I’ve left notes for which are vegan or diary free so you can find just the right sweet treat you will love eating.
The holidays are the perfect no-judgment time for enjoying sweets. We deserve it, let’s have fun! Serve one of each to me please!
These healthy Christmas treats are fun to make and can be enjoyed throughout the holiday season.
