Desserts are my favorite part of holiday dinners. There’s so many different flavors, textures, and colors… and I’m a big fan of the sweetness. But since I’ve begun treating my autoimmune disease, I have to stay away from sugar for the most part. it’s not fun, and I really miss eating sweets during this time of year. So for those of us that can’t have gluten and traditional sugar in our desserts, here’s a fantastic roundup of healthy holiday desserts that will have us feeling like we aren’t missing out at all!
One of my favorite go-to desserts year round are the sugar free no bake cookies. They are so easy, full of healthy fats, and incredibly delicious! My boys love them, and they tend to disappear quickly when I make them. They’re just the right combination of fudgy and sweet, and they melt in your mouth.
A deliciously creamy cookie that’s fudgy and sweet, and packed with protein and healthy fats. It has no sugar or gluten, but tons of flavor and will be sure to be a hit with everyone at your holiday get together!
