Best Ever Christmas Cookies Recipe

I will always have a special place for my oatmeal cranberry cookies. If you haven’t already tried them, I beg you to give them a go because they are also so delicious. My cookie jar is filled with a mix of them, and this new cookie recipe!

It wouldn’t be the festive season without the sweet scent of freshly baked cookies, and seeing christmas lights hanging. The best part is that this recipe is mostly refined sugar free (minus the m&m’s) , high fiber and packs in the flavour!!

Kitchen Sink Christmas Cookies

What I love about these cookies are how there are so many different variations. You can add in whatever mix-ins you personally prefer, but I like to add in popcorn and M&M’s. I also sometimes like to add some pretsels, nuts or cranberries for an extra festive feel! The best part about this is that there is no set recipe! Instead, you can simply add whatever you have in your pantry and mix it up!

If you don’t like m&m’s, I suggest replacing it with chocolate chips! DO NOT omit the chocolate element in this recipe, it is honestly essential to a delicious tasting flavour packed cookie!

 How To Make Overnight Oats:

                                                                               Ingredients for the base recipe:

Oat flour: Rolled oats work the best!

Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.

M&m’s or chocolate chips: I use a fat free variety, and it gives a delicious creamy texture! You could replace this with coconut yoghurt if looking for a vegan variety

Egg: Can be replace with a flax or chia seed egg

Popcorn: I use air popped popcorn

Vanilla extract: Perfect to add that vanilla flavor

Baking soda: Essential to allow the cookie to rise

Cinnamon: To add that festive feel 

Water or milk of choice: I personally use water, but any milk of choice works equally as well!
