This year I set out to make the healthiest possible version of a Christmas cookie box.

But I didn’t want to lose out on flavor and deliciousness. To do that, I had to find the most delicious healthy Christmas cookie recipes out there, plus create some of my own, which meant dusting my gingerbread cookie cutters a bit earlier.

All I can say is that none of my friends complained when they had to test the dozens of different cookies I baked to fine-tune the perfect recipes, especially if the cookies came with a hot cup of my homemade chocolate!

But is it even possible to bake healthy Christmas cookies?

Yes, it is! All the cookies on this list are made with a mix of wholesome, nourishing ingredients, lots of spices, and natural, unrefined sweeteners.

25 Healthy Christmas Cookies That Are Insanely Good!

Honestly, these cookies are so good that no one will notice the difference!

Instead of white flour, we'll use almond flour or whole wheat flour. Maple syrup and dates will sweeten our Christmas treats instead of caster sugar.

But we won't get too hung up on the details, and if we need a bit of powdered sugar to make our cookies prettier, we'll use a tiny bit!

It's the holiday season, after all!

I hope you enjoyed this list of healthy Christmas Cookies!

Pick a few and start baking!

I had a great time testing these recipes to make this Christmas cookie box for my family and friends!

And if you try any of these healthy Christmas cookies, please let me know in the comments!

  • Bake each batch of cookies following the recipe's instructions (click on the link above).
  • Let your cookies cool down completely, then place them in a wooden box or food-safe cardboard box. I love creating little stacks of cookies by wrapping them with baker's twine, but you don't have to.
  • You now have a beautiful, healthy Christmas cookie box for your friends and family! It's the perfect edible gift for Christmas!


Note 1: You don’t have to bake all these cookies! You can mix and match all the recipes above. I recommend baking at least three cookie recipes for the perfect Christmas cookie box.
Note 2: Your Christmas cookies should keep for at least 5 days, but check each recipe for the storing tips.
