Snickerdoodles

How does a Christmas Snickerdoodle without any refined sugar sound? The holidays can be a time where lots of junk food is consumed. No need to fear that with these goodies and no need to go without your favorite treats! As long as you keep the ingredients pure and organic you can have a very healthy and guilt free Christmas.

Unrefined Sugars are a much better option than highly refined conventional sugar. Unrefined sugars (like honey, sucanat, and stevia) have more nutrients (like iron, magnesium, and calcium) where refined sugars have been stripped of any nutrients. (source) (source)

Whole Wheat is a great way to keep treats healthy. Whole Wheat can have benefits such as aiding weight loss, lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes, lessening chronic inflammation and protecting against heart disease among other things. After our experience with a gluten free diet, we think it should totally be in the superfood category! (source)

Cinnamon contains both fiber and calcium with can protect against heart disease and help with colon health. Just the scent of cinnamon alone can boost brain function. It’s also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. (source)

Both Organic Pastured Butter and Coconut Oil are healthy fats. Healthy fats can aid heart health, hormonal health, brain health and help the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K. (source)
