Have you tried Bark Thins? I LOVE the pretzel version, so that is where the inspiration for this Sweet and Salty Holiday Bark came from. I also added extra sweetness with the pomegranates and beautiful color with the pistachios. For more holiday recipes check out this post.

We are in full holiday baking season now. So it’s the perfect time for me to share these Coconut Vanilla Meltaway Cookies. They are divine and simply melt in your mouth. One of the best things about this recipe is that it only calls for 4 simple ingredients!
I used REBBL Vanilla Spice Protein Coconut Milk for this recipe. I love that the protein is sourced from peas, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Most protein drinks contain processed ingredients. Not only are REBBL drinks delicious, but they contain none of the bad stuff. That’s right, REBBL drinks are organic, fair trade, made from real ingredients and full of super herbs like ashwagandha, reishi and maca root.
Is there a vegan in your family? I have the perfect recipe for you. This Lentil Stuffed Acorn Squash is healthy, easy, and very flavorful! For Thanksgiving a few years ago, we served a wild rice stuffed acorn squash and it was a huge success. Even with the meat eaters!
You can make the filling a day ahead if you like. It should hold up great. Then on the day you are serving, all you need to do is roast the squash and assemble.
I love all the colors in this healthy recipe. When I went to buy the squash for this, they only had tiny acorn squashes, so that is why mine look kind of small. However, the beauty of this recipe is that you can make the squash any size you like. The filling is also pretty delicious on it’s own.
Now that we are past Thanksgiving, it’s time to think about all things gingerbread! Starting with these No Bake Gingerbread Chocolate Cookies. Does it get much easier than no bake? I don’t think so! These little bites of deliciousness will rock your world. I promise!
These gingerbread cookie dough bites are vegan, gluten free, and paleo. Marcus was begging me to take a picture fast so he could eat them all fast!
I love baking around the holidays. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are one of my favorite holiday cookie recipes. Before this Whole Food Life, I used to do a lot of traditional baking. However since that time, I have tried to modify those traditional recipes to make them a bit healthier. I hope you enjoy my version.
This recipe is not only easy. It’s vegan, gluten free and grain free! I used Justin’s mini peanut butter cups to make mine, but you can also make this recipe with my Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cups recipe if you prefer.
This is the time for all things peppermint! These Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies would be great to serve at your holiday parties. Or you can leave some out for Santa. We usually make the Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies for Santa, but we may switch it up this year. To make these Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies, I slightly tweaked my Chocolate Coffee Cookie recipe. I hope you enjoy them! If you love all things peppermint, you may also like my peppermint fudge.
These healthier peppermint cookies are vegan, gluten free and grain free. They also freeze well if you wanted to keep them awhile.
