Healthy Gingerbread Cookies
Great traditional danish Christmas gingerbread cookies, redesigned into a healthier version. You can perfume your apartment throughout the year, also out of Christmas. They are crunchy and delicious, it is even much easier to prepare them, than to prepare gingerbread. They taste equally well, and are even nutritionally valuable. Believe me, they are worth of trying.
During my stay in Denmark during Christmas, I enjoyed their traditional gingerbread cookies called Pebbernodder. Because I liked them so much, I was always able to eat more of them than it would be good, and then of course, compunction appeared. These traditional cookies are quite caloric and rich in sugars and fats. That's why I started to think how could I make them in a healthier and more fit version and after a few unsuccessful attempts I finally came up with this recipe that looks very similar to those original ones. These Christmas cookies are healthy, rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, and will also fill you up in this version. Oats, whole-wheat flour and honey appear in the main role in them.
In addition, these healthy Christmas cookies are easy to prepare, highly addictive, and will perfume your entire apartment during baking. I'm sure the whole family will want to crunch them.
