During the holidays, it’s a time for celebrations at work, at home, and with friends and neighbors. I’ve found that one of the best ways for Warriors to avoid the temptation to nibble on sugar-laden sweets that don’t serve you is to make your own brain-healthy dessert and bring it with you. I’ve been making the following Holiday Sugarless Cookie recipe for years and now our friends and family beg me to bring them to their holiday parties and gatherings. And these cookies taste so good, it’s almost impossible to tell they don’t have any refined sugar.
Baking holiday cookies is also one of the most time-honored family traditions, so this let’s you create a little holiday magic with your Junior Warriors in the kitchen without the harmful effects of sugar.

Happy baking, and I hope you have a warm and wonderful holiday this year. If you’d like more recipes for simple holiday meal swaps, check out The Brain Warrior’s Way Cookbook.
