The holidays lure even the most reticent cook into the kitchen for baking. When most of us think of the holidays we think of cookies and bar cookies because they are easy to give as a gift. Many of the recipes we reach for are old standbys that most everyone loves, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, peanut butter cookies, just to name a few.
What if you could make those delicious cookies healthy at the same time? Definitely would be a bonus other than extracting calories out of our old favorites. Below we are going to give you some wonderful healthy additions that you can make to almost any cookie or bar cookie recipe. Just remember that if you add a lot more dry ingredients to your cookie recipe to adjust your wet ingredients accordingly.
The key to adding ingredients to cookies is to pair ingredients that would work well with the most common ingredients for that recipe. So, we will not only give you some healthy additions to try out but also suggestions on what type of cookies these ingredient additions might work best with.
We couldn’t let our holiday blog go by without giving you a great cookie recipe for the holidays. We love this cookies recipe because it has some of our favorite ingredients; chocolate, balsamic vinegar, and salt!
