The holidays can be a particularly depressing time to be gluten-free. All those Christmas cookie swaps and New Year's Eve party petit fours don't usually cater well to dietary restrictions or allergies, not to mention your waistline in general. So this year I developed a holiday twist on my favorite raw cookie bites with cinnamon, cherries and chocolate.
I got hooked on these beauty bon bons from, of all people, my holistic facialist, who gives out a small bag of these cookies after each session. It didn't take me long to recreate them at home. Now I keep a stash on hand for year-round healthy snacking, knowing that the shredded coconut, super seeds, and raw honey not only satisfy my sweet tooth, but also contain essential fats and antioxidants for a great glow.
