The chill in the air and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes exuding from my local Starbucks can only mean one thing…Fall is upon us. And this season calls for a whole new repertoire of desserts. Say goodbye to popsicles and ice cream cones, and hello apple crisp and cider donuts...And healthy cookies?
Soon enough you’ll be devouring Halloween candy, and soon after that you’ll be sitting around a table for Thanksgiving, and not long after that comes the winter holiday season filled with pies, cookies, and chocolate Advent calendars.
In summary, we’re about to enter the season of eating. Of course, all of these holidays are filled with family and food (two of my favorite things), but sometimes there is a sense of anxiety surrounding the sugar comas you know you will soon be slipping into. Have no fear, you can eat delicious things and still stay healthy during the holidays.
These cookies are a white chocolate and cranberry combo that’s perfect for any fall or winter treat, plus the nutritional benefits of oats and chia seeds. They taste so good, your relatives won’t even know that what you’re serving them has secret health benefits.
Whip up these healthy cookies and bring them to your next family gathering, or just enjoy them as a snack alongside your pumpkin spice latte.
