This holiday season can get busy and overwhelming for most of us and while many would love to just crash after a long day with a tub of Christmas cookies and binge holiday bake-off shows it may not be a feel-good option every single night. Here are a few Christmas cookie ideas that may help your drop in blood sugar with some extra fiber or protein this holiday season! Don’t forget to wash down with a cold glass of milk to get in some extra protein!
These are Paleo, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly! Almond butter is not delicious but it’s packed with fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, B vitamins, and protein. Almonds also help stabilize blood sugar and lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
These classy looking macaroons with pistachios that are rich in fiber and healthy fats!
I have a real weakness for anything toffee so these little squares are a favorite of ours! Its also vegetarian, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo, refined sugar-free, soy-free, …whew, did I miss any ‘free’??
You will be blown away that these truffles are made of mostly chickpeas and dates!
5. Almond and cinnamon Christmas stars
Lots of healthy substitutions on these Christmas stars including chia eggs instead of eggs!
These white chocolate peppermint biscotti are gluten-free and have zero butter in them!!! Taylor from Food Faith Fitness substitutes avocado for butter in these breakfast appropriate cookies!
