Raw "Pebernødder" a la Christmas Spiced Raw Cookies

During December and the holidays I sometimes find it tempting to fall into the sliding “trap” of marcipan and other Christimas sweets as they hold so many memories from the past …. of a magical time of childhood and the sense of Christmas!! Don’t get me wrong that’s all lovely we have our wonderful memories however I like to make the Christimas also about health, being more loving and kind to the people we love (including ourselves) and spending quality time together.

I love creating healthy snack treats that feels indulgent so I created a Raw version of an old Danish Christimas biscuit tradition and it turned out so well….

It has all the spice sensations that I recall from all the Christmas baking and I’m sure also your kids will love it too.
