Satiate your sweet tooth with these healthy cookie recipes.


If it doesn’t feel like the holidays unless you bake some cookies for Santa, try one of these lighter recipes. (Bet he won’t know the difference!)


Gluten-Free Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies

Are you a fan of the pumpkin cake roll that has a cream cheese filling? This soft pumpkin cookie is a cross between a whoopie pie and a pumpkin cake roll.


Chocolate-Hazelnut Macaroons

Chocolate and hazelnut is a delectable flavor combination. Although these chewy-crisp (and gluten-free) cookies are delicious on their own, you can make them even more elegant by sandwiching two together with some melted chocolate.


Healthy Makeover Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Revamped, these gems are still ooey-gooey good—but they’re only 80 calories each (with a gram of healthy fiber per cookie). We’ve also cut out half the fat and cholesterol you’d find in this treat’s calorie-laden cousins. Lose the guilt—and indulge!


Skinny Figgy Bars

A low-fat version of a favorite treat.

Applesauce-Raisin Cookies with Lemon Glaze

A Granny Smith apple adds moisture and texture, while lemon glaze gives an appealing shine to these old-fashioned beauties.
