Christmas Cookie Recipe: Healthy Choc-Chip Cookies

Have Yourself a Healthy Little Christmas

Let your heart be light! From now on our troubles will be out of sight! Because now there is no more missing out, even if you´re trying to eat in a deficit (or at least not a surplus around Christmas time) or just if you prefer lighter alternatives. You can easily fit these Christmas cookies into your diet, as they taste delicious and have great macros as well! 

Just because I´m sharing a healthier cookie recipe with lower calories and higher in protein, doesn´t mean you shouldn´t have any other traditional Christmas cookies. It is just nice to have a healthier alternative every now and then. One can almost not believe that this is a healthier alternative. They taste stunningly delicious but are not quite as crunchy as the traditional alternative. 

Curious? Let´s bake!
