As you probably noticed I always try to incorporate healthy recipes on our blog, this time is no different. Lately, baking Christmas goodies, absorbs me completly. The smell coming from the oven reminds me of
the best moments from my childhood. The only difference is that my cookies are somewhat different then those from my Mom. Trust me, they taste excellent and are gluten free, sugar free and guilt free. So feel free to try them and let me know what do you think.

Enjoy!
