These paleo Christmas cookies are sure to bring a smile to your family and friends. All of these cookie recipes are gluten-free and grain-free versions of your favorite holiday treats.
I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! Where did the year go? I still have some decorating and baking left to do. I’ve already baked my hazelnut cookies, but I’ve been checking my favorite food blogs for more paleo Christmas cookie recipes.
One of the biggest challenges when you go gluten, grain, or dairy-free, is baking. Everyone has their favorite holiday cookie or treat, so it’s important to be able to recreate them. You can try to convert the recipes to paleo or gluten-free versions yourself. But it’s so much easier to let someone else do the experimenting so you can just enjoy baking and eating the cookies.
So here are a dozen paleo and gluten-free Christmas cookies (and other holiday treats) that are sure to bring a smile to your elves. Serve these up with some peppermint hot chocolate (dairy-free, of course) or cinnamon apple cider while you decorate the tree and wrap all the gifts!
