Sweets Minus Guilt = Better-For-You Holiday Cookie Recipes

Holiday cookies

This is a guest post by Annie Lynsen, on loan to AARP from Small Act.

I'm committed to my healthy lifestyle, but the idea of a holiday without cookies makes me really sad.

That's why I was so excited to find not just one, but several collections of better-for-you holiday cookies. They all include healthy swaps to help cut the fat, calories and guilt that often go hand-in-hand with holiday sweets.

A word of caution, however - even though these cookies are healthier, they are still treats, so indulge sparingly.
