You know it seems every year as holidays come around I get all excited to make cookies, and goodies, with lots and lots of sugar, and white flour, and chocolate. Then of course we eat them, and eat them, and well eat some more. The next step in the process is a stomach ache and a headache and most likely we get SICK!!!! So if you are like me you are on the hunt for a few good healthier alternatives to the Holiday Junk Food! Here's a few ideas for a healthier alternative to the holidays that our family enjoys.
Healthier Peanut Butter Cookies. A Holiday tip to make these special is to make them smaller and after they bake take them out and push 1 Hershey's kiss into the middle. Now I know Hershey's kisses are not on the healthier list. We can not afford to use the healthier chocolate chips so I just use the healthiest ones I can find and afford. I am sure there are healthier options for Hershey's kisses too. I guess we allow alittle cheating!
I also make this super yummy pumpkin cheesecake. WOW Amazing! I use the graham crackers from Costco. I have also made homemade graham crackers when I don't have them. Then I just alter it to be healthier.
Here are a few of my favorite websites to get inspiration for healthier goodies.
That being said, we still eat too much and then are reminded why we don't eat much sugar, even pure evaporated cain juice.!
Hope everyone enjoys a happy and healthier Christmas and a wonderful new year!
