Since I just recently published the giant collection of all my cookie recipes, they’re not included in today’s holiday round-up post.
What follows are all of my other holiday-themed recipes, from breakfast to dinner to dessert. And if you missed the giant holiday cookie post, see this link.
Now, on to everything else…
…………Secretly Healthy Cookie Dough Truffles
These are always quick to disappear at parties, and no one ever guesses the secret ingredient.
………………..Chocolate Grasshopper Pie
Cool peppermint, dark chocolate, and no green food coloring whatsoever!
…………………Cheesy Polenta Casserole
This one’s obviously not a dessert, but it’s a nice change of pace from the parade of sweets on offer during the holidays. Filled with creamy polenta and cheesy veggies, it’s one of those recipes that makes you feel really good and energized after eating it.
……………….Christmas Cookie Ice Cream
This sugar-cookie twist on traditional cookie dough ice cream is best eaten in front of a fireplace. Or on a beach in Florida. I’ll take the latter, please.
……………..“Starbucks” Gingerbread Lattes
With so much coconut whipped cream… that gingerbread man is the luckiest guy in the world.
……………………Candy Cane Pudding
Creamy peppermint pudding topped with cacao nibs and pomegranate seeds. This is also really good as a thick, pourable version of whipped heavy cream—try it over chocolate cake!
……………………One Ingredient Melties
I first made these a few years ago and have been eating them almost every single day since!
……………….Gingerbread Peanut Butter
Good for taking the classic pb&j sandwich for a holiday spin.
…………………Skinny Mini Jelly Roll
This one is really fun to make, and it’s single-serving!
………………………..Baby Spice Cake
A surprisingly fat-free cake that serves just two people.
………………….Gingerbread Breakfast Cereal
It tastes like gingerbread in a bowl!
A lighter, more refreshing version of eggnog—without the raw eggs!
Question of the Day:
What are you making this holiday season, either for dinner or dessert?
I love anything gingerbread flavoured….so you bet I’m eating everything from gingerbread smoothies and gingerbread butter to gingerbread cookies and YOUR gingerbread breakfast cereal!
Tiffany H says
I just made a gingerbread almond butter recipe for the holidays. I’m gonna have to make the gingerbread oatmeal recipe for breakfast tomorrow 😀

We always have the weirdest Christmas meals because we have so many different tastes, diets, and preferences. I usually have some mashed potatoes and jello. Maybe a roll or two. There will also be ham, mini cocktail weenies, lasagna, cheese and crackers, and eggnog.
That polenta dish looks awesome, I think I’ll have to give that a try the next time my friends and I do our pot luck dinner parties 🙂

GiGi Eats Celebrities says
I just died! Those pictures, OMG. I am so hungry and that just made me MORE SO!!! I espeically love the Christmas Cookie Ice Cream picture. I wish I could reach my hand into the computer screen and grab it…. Hey if that were possible the food would be calorie free too, right? LOL!!! Merry X Mas! 🙂
The food looks absolutely delicious! These melties and healthy eggnog… I’d like to try it 🙂
I love your recipes. I’m glad I found out your website, I;m going to follow you!
Yummm! You know, a cookie I really think you should try to do a healthy makeover to is the “Monster Cookie.” I first heard about it on “Sally’s Baking Addiction” blog, so you can look there to see it if you don’t know what I’m talking about! It would be awesome! 😀 Thanks for all the amazing recipes so far and keep them coming (especially I really hope to see the 100 calorie cinnamon rolls 😀 ) Haha!
Kara @Nutritious-n-Delicious says
How did I miss this post! I wish I would have seen it before Christmas. So many good ideas. I will just have to make some of these for New Years!
Amber @ Slim Pickin's Kitchen says
All of these recipes look divine!
Hi Katie your recipes are always great! wondering if you have any using cacao nibs? thanks 🙂
Chocolate Covered Katie says
Hmm… just recipes where you use them as a garnish (such as in the Shamrock Shakes).
