Today’s holiday recipe is for healthy chocolate candy cane cookies. Add these healthy treats to your Christmas cookie platter and your friends and family will be none the wiser.
For my healthy chocolate candy cane cookie recipe, instead of all-purpose flour I used nutrient-dense almond flour along with a bit of coconut flour to make these gluten-free. Traditional chocolate candy cane cookie recipes call for butter, which we know is a healthy fat, but I swapped it out for coconut oil to make these cookies dairy-free. Instead of regular white sugar I replaced it with my recommended all-natural sugar-free sweetener. Lastly, I skipped the unhealthy food dye found in regular candy canes and picked up a box of organic ones. They still have sugar in them but we only need one for the whole recipe. You can hang the rest on your tree.
