Christmas is coming and in my house that means baking season is upon us!

One of my absolute favorite things to do is making cookies with the kids. It was one of my fondest memories as a kid.

Yup that’s me! Sick that Christmas that’s why I didn’t look too happy (accoring to mom,) but I remember loving every moment of it every year. It was something I couldn’t wait to do with my own kids.

Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a few cookie ideas that I can have fun making and feel good about eating and feeding my kids.

There’s nothing wrong with traditional cookie recipes, but making things just a little lighter and healthier is fun challenge for me. Why not try to minimize calories and maximize nutrition while indulging in holiday traditions?

I just don’t see the harm in it. If they don’t turn out than you could always fall back on the classics. I mean how many sugar cookies recipes exist anyway?

Here are 10 cookies ideas I’ve shared on GreenLiteBites. I plan on making at least 2 of these this weekend plus a new bread recipe Mom just shared. Baking starts tomorrow!

 
 
 
 
Happy Baking!!

    Roni –Merry Christmas to you and your family. I want to thank you for all the help you have given me in the past 6 months since I found your blog!!! I especially love Wednesday weigh-in. I signed up for a 5K on Thanksgiving but my doctor said my leg was not well enough to do that but I could in the future. I never thought I would get back to a state that I could even consider doing something like that or be on a path of losing weight after 3 yrs but I am. It is you terrific spirit that sparks something in us to keep going. Thank you for sharing your ups and downs in such a positive way. I hope you have peace, joy, and happiness in the coming year.
