Traditional Christmas Cookies

Make Santa Happy this Year

Homemade Traditional Christmas Cookies are Paleo, with Keto and Vegan options. This year healthily enjoy the Holidays and make Santa happy!

It’s that time of year where you fill up on Christmas cookies and maybe a few glasses of ‘adult’ eggnog beverages.

No judgment, we all have our ways of dealing with the holidays. (My approach is usually with a few glasses of tequila on the rocks and a squirt of lime). Read more about dealing with the Holiday Blues.

Aside from spending time with family, I think one of my favorite parts of Christmas is the cookies.

It’s been a long-running family tradition to bake Christmas cookies around the second weekend in December. The second weekend marks the perfect time to bake for yourself, your loved ones, and co-workers.

You’ll want to sign yourself up for the office cookie exchange with these delicious Traditional Christmas Cookies and save some for yourself (and Santa). *winks

Each recipe below is free from grains, refined sugar, dairy, legumes, and all things processed. There is also a few Keto, Vegan, and allergy-friendly recipes as well!
