What I Eat Wednesday: Gingerbread and Sugar Cookie Recipe

photo-6This time of year everyone is baking delicious cookies and I am no exception. A few weeks back, I mentioned that Wren from WrensHealthy on Youtube and I teamed up to make healthier versions of our favorite recipes. Originally it was just 3 videos, however we decided to extend it through the holidays.

Our focus now is on traditional Christmas baked goods, like cookies and Pie. In our first two videos we made healthy Sugar and Gingerbread Cookies. Surprisingly, my versions turned out better than I thought.
I even got good feed back from the boyfriend, who normally does not like my ‘healthier’ versions of dessert recipes (he doesn’t like the taste of Stevia). Anywho, since they were so good, I thought I would share the recipes.

Feel free to bake them for Santa this year. I am sure he and Mrs. Claus would appreciate you looking out for his health.

If you are a visual learner, check out the videos on both Wren (WrensHealthy) and My YouTube channels (Clarissa198). This Saturday we will be posting our last video which for me will be a healthy chocolate pudding and whipped cream pie. Get Excited!
