Holiday Cookies That Everyone Can Enjoy

For most people the holidays involve spending time with family, celebration, and food... lots of food. It can be challenging to navigate family parties if you have a different eating style than most of your family. But it is not impossible to make everyone happy! Finding recipes that are delicious and healthy are key. It's also a great way to show your friends or family that eating healthier doesn't have to mean sacrificing flavor. The Orange Blossom Cookies are so yummy and much healthier than your common holiday cookie. Without refined sugar, gluten, or dairy these cookies are in it for the win! My whole family loved them and most of them didn't even know they were "healthy". Try the recipe for yourself and see what your family thinks!
