What are some healthy Christmas cookie recipes

Raw cinnamon stars:

  1. 200 g ground almonds
  2. 10 dates pitted
  3. 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  4. 1 pinch of rock salt
  5. Half nuts or whole almonds to decorate

The dates are soaked with a little water for a few hours and (without soaking water) processed together with the almonds, cinnamon and salt in a mixer to form an even, well-cohesive mass.

If the dough is too dry, you can add a little coconut oil or honey. If it's too sticky, you can add a little coconut flour or more ground almonds.

The dough is then rolled out about 1 cm thick. Small stars are now cut out of the dough with a cookie cutter, which you can decorate with a nut or an almond as you wish.

The cinnamon stars already taste very fine. However, you can also put them in the dehydrator overnight and dry them at 40 degrees.

Gingerbread Balls:

  1. 100 g ground walnuts
  2. 50 g raw cocoa powder
  3. 6 dates pitted
  4. 2 tbsp high quality organic coconut oil
  5. 1 tbsp honey or coconut blossom sugar
  6. 1 teaspoon grated orange peel from untreated organic oranges
  7. ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  8. ½ teaspoon gingerbread spice
  9. ¼ teaspoon organic bourbon vanilla powder
  10. Ground walnuts or raw cocoa powder (or finely ground cocoa nibs) for decoration

All ingredients (except for the decorative material) are processed into an even dough with a powerful mixer.

If the dough is too dry, either a little more coconut oil or honey can be added. If it's too sticky, you can add a little more ground nuts.

As soon as the dough has a cohesive consistency, about 20 small balls are rolled out of it. These are first placed in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes or in the refrigerator for half an hour before being rolled in cocoa powder or ground walnuts for decoration.

The gingerbread balls should be stored in the refrigerator.

And finally, a quick but ingenious recipe from Elfe Grunwald, gourmet chef for vegan and vegetarian delicacies:

Chocolate Bukhara pralines

  1. 70 g dark bittersweet from the health food store or health food store
  2. 1 tbsp organic coconut oil
  3. 1 tbsp black Bukhara raisins (alternatively: normal sultanas)
  4. 20 g wholemeal buckwheat puffed

Melt the dark curverture and coconut oil in a saucepan and then remove the saucepan from the heat.

Now the puffed buckwheat with the raisins is carefully turned in the chocolate mass and the mass is put into small paper cases with a spoon.

The pralines are then put in the refrigerator and after half an hour they are firm and can be nibbled.

We wish you all the best with your baking.
