There’s something about the word “cookie” that makes us smile. Memories of childhood, perhaps, when our biggest worry focused on which cookie to choose from Grandma’s cookie jar? But we don’t always have time to bake in our busy adult lives — and we also don’t want to resort to grabbing processed products at the store. Here’s the solution: no-bake cookie bars. This wholesome recipe is beyond simple, and better yet, it can be customized with your favorite dried fruits and berries, nuts or nut butters.

Why waste time on white sugar when safer sweeteners make cookies just as craveable? Here’s a new one to try: lucuma. From a tropical superfruit native to Peru, this off-white powder is packed with vitamins and minerals, with a naturally sweet, malty flavor similar to maple. In this recipe, it’s combined with quinoa flakes (a nice change of pace from oats!), raw honey, coconut oil and other natural favorites for a sweet yet healthy cookie that won’t send your blood sugar on a roller coaster ride.
These are a new twist on an old family favorite of mine. I love to bake cookies for the holidays and this organic, gluten-free version of a classic chewy holiday treat has all of the flavor and way less of the guilt.
This is a great cookie recipe to make with your kids and perfect for those all-too-popular cookie exchange parties. They are so delicious and moist (thanks to the coconut oil), no one will believe you when you tell them these cookies are gluten-free.
You’re bloated, excessively tired and have had enough fudge and cookies to stock the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory.

Food is everywhere during the holidays. If you’re like everyone else, you don’t want to miss out on the fun treats all around. To avoid overindulging, it’s a good idea to keep plenty of delicious and nutritious snacks on hand. That way, you’ll feel satisfied without suffering the sugar crash that sends you back to the platter for more cookies 20 minutes after the first splurge!
