Healthy Christmas Desserts

Christmas is right around the corner now and to round up my Healthy Holiday theme, I have put together all my favourite healthy christmas desserts to keep you inspired with some great and healthy recipes to enjoy for the rest of the holiday season.

Carrot cake with vegan lemon cream frosting

This carrot cake is fresh, yet rich and packed full of nutrition. The signature christmas spices, including cinnamon and nutmeg makes it a holiday favourite that will have you and your guests satisfied without a sugar high. Made with coconut flour and almond flour, this cake is gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly.

Fig + walnut muffins

These seasonal muffins are easy to make and full of delicious christmas flavours. Featuring dried figs and walnuts, these muffins are the perfect addition to a christmas dessert table and are healthy enough to be enjoyed for breakfast too.

Paleo choc chip cookies

Grain free and naturally sweetened, these cookies are the perfect solution to Christmas cookies made healthy. The recipe is adapted from my mother’s christmas cookie recipe, which she’s been making every year for as long as I can remember and they’re just amazing. Featuring ingredients like orange zest, hazelnuts + 85% dark chocolate, these won’t disappoint.

Raw chocolate brownies

These raw chocolate brownies are rich and full of flavour. Made with omega 3 rich walnuts and raw cacao, these brownies are healthier than your typical brownie and packed with healthy fats, powerful antioxidants and natural sugars from the wonderfully sweet medjool dates.

Pumpkin spice cake with cashew cream frosting

Pumpkin cake is a must on many christmas tables and this healthy version will not disappoint.

Pistachio + Almond Stuffed Dates

Stuffed dates are an amazing homemade alternative to regular Christmas confectionary and these are one of my favourite Christmas treats this year. Stuffed with a salted pistachio and almond mixture and topped with a dark chocolate, these are both fun to make and completely delicious.

Merry Christmas! I hope you all have an amazing time with family and friends. See you again in 2015.
