I'd like to share with you some of my favorite cookie recipes and the people that inspired my healthy (and healthier-version-and-definitely-yummy) cookie cravings.
Don't worry if you're too busy this holiday season, these are pretty quick to do and their good as gifts as well! Not just for Santa, of course. ;)

1. Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Cookies from Michelle of Cavegirl Cuisine
The first time I baked these my tastebuds really danced with the flavors. Very hearty, even Santa will love it!
Note: I used a coffee grinder to process the hazelnuts.
2. "Not Guilty" Chocolate Chip Cookies from Katie of Chocolate-Covered Katie
I made these a bunch of times before and it's really easy to make. Katie also has other easy-to-make cookie recipes to follow. Visit and follow her blog for more.
3. Oat and Berries Cookies from Cassey of Blogilates
I love Cassey to the bones! She makes her famous "cheap cleans eats" and they're very easy to make. This particular recipe only has 3 ingredients! I have no more "I'm too busy to eat healthy" snacks, cheats or otherwise, thanks to her.
4. Real-Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies from Danielle of Against All Grain
One of the reasons why I like this is because you can just make the dough and freeze it as a gift! You can bake some for your guests or wrap the dough as holiday presents.
Danielle also made cookie tags for us to print and cut-out to go along with the dough. So thoughtful!
5. Peanut Butter Balls (no-bake) from Angela of Oh She Glows
Now, this one's not particularly a cookie but I love them as cookie doughs! They are eaten as is, no-bake and no kidding! Perfect for your busy schedule.
Happy eating! :)
