19 Dec 12 Days of Holiday Cookies: Day 8 Gingerbread Cookies with White Chocolate
By Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD, Contributing Blogger
The eighth day of the 12 Days of Holiday Cookies showcases a cookie from this very own blog. These Gingerbread Cookies with White Chocolate are a healthy twist on the classic holiday dessert. With a blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flour, plus unsweetened applesauce and Greek yogurt to replace the butter and oil, these cookies are definitely healthier than many other desserts. The sweetness comes from a blend of spices, sugar, agave syrup, and molasses, while crystallized ginger and white chocolate chunks add unexpected texture and flavor.
