    Healthy Gingerbread Cookies

    It wouldn't be a recipe for gingerbread cookies without ginger. Mix it with cinnamon and nutmeg you'll bake in a ton of flavor without having to use the boxed stuff. Bonus: Ginger is a known tummy tamer, making these the perfect cookie to nibble on after too much eggnog.

    Go ahead and bypass the crazy-long line outside the cinnamon roll stand at the mall. Make these instead with pumpkin purée and coconut sugar for a better-for-you bun that is best right out of the oven.

    Yogurt Cranberry Poppyseed Cake

    We love a cake you can eat at 9 a.m. or 9 p.m. Cranberries combined with Greek yogurt make this cake both tart and creamy, while serving up a slice of antioxidants and calcium, too.
