Admit it: Part of the holiday season fun is eating all the good food. But good food doesn’t automatically mean sugar-laden sweets and desserts.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe in ‘guilt-free’ treats, because there’s nothing wrong with having cookies on Christmas Eve and you should enjoy that. For some of us, however, eating pecan pie or candy cane causes harmful blood sugar spikes, abdominal pain, allergic reactions or worsening of our chronic illness symptoms.
Thankfully, you don’t have to settle for boring unsweetened, gluten-free banana bread during Thanksgiving or Christmas family gatherings. These 15 better-for-you cookies, cakes and puddings prove that healthier holiday baking looks and tastes deliciously!
