The holidays can be a bit crazy, full of cooking, family, friends, and events—well, except this year, when we're staying home to stay safe. But that doesn't mean the holidays are any less insane: We're still cooking up a storm and practicing as many favorite traditions as we can muster.

So if in all the changes something slipped your mind (like what to make for a bit of dessert) or if you're craving a slightly more health-conscious alternative to classic cookies, consider this recipe from Holiday Keto. With only five ingredients, you can make a tasty keto-friendly cookie bite that doesn't require oven time—saving the space there for making the rest of your holiday meal instead.
