Healthy Sugar Free and Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Cookies

·

Incredibly delicious and easy to make cookies that taste just like that famous Christmas time chocolate orange. This recipe gluten free, sugar free, and keto friendly. Chocolate and orange, to me, is a classic Christmas flavor because when I was a child, I always got a Terry's Chocolate Orange in my stocking and I love it! This cookie recipe seriously takes me back to that treat in a guilt free way - how could I ask for anything better?

This recipe is also incredibly easy to whip up, you could be eating these cookies fresh and warm out of the oven in less than 30 minutes. This recipe is great to keep on hand for yourself when you need a sweet treat, bring into the office and treat your coworkers (like I did), bake them for a holiday cookie exchange, wrap up in a cute package for a gift, or they are even healthy enough to bring with you to a brunch. Each Chocolate Orange Cookie comes in at only 110 calories, three whole grams of protein, only two grams net carbs, and LESS than one gram of sugar! Wooohooooo! With recipes like mine you can be as indulgent as you like over the holidays!

Who is ready for the holidays? I know I sure am! I get some time off from my regular job, which gives me more time to work on recipes for the new year which is super exciting. Not only do I love my time off, but I love the feeling of the holidays. From the warm sweet drinks to the bright beautiful lights and the crunch of fresh snow under my feet. I don't enjoy the freezing cold that we get where I live, but I can certainly get behind everything else. OH, and I can't forget wearing the comfy yet cheesy Christmas sweater in front of the warm fireplace with a funny Christmas movie on with my dog and cat curled up on me, now we are talking! What is your favorite part about the holidays and this time of year? After Christmas there isn't too much that I enjoy about the winter, I am just waiting for it to get warm out again after that because I love me some summer once I get my Christmas fix. What are your favorite Christmas or holiday dessert recipes? Let me know and I just might create a healthy version just for you!
