Rolling dough and decorating gingerbread houses if a huge part of the holiday season for so many of us. Most of the time, I eat half of the dough before the final product is even revealed so luckily, these food bloggers below have us covered by taking the traditions up a notch!

Easily add in healthy ingredients like coconut oil and swap refined sugar for maple syrup to stay on track with your fitness goals.

1. Christmas gingerbread cookies.

These taste amazing and are much better than the traditional version packed full of processed white sugar and flour. The Herb Diaries‘ simple take on the Christmas classic.

9. Soft + Chewy Molasses Cookies

Molasses cookies have got to be one of the most underrated cookies out there. Jessie of Faring Well likes to make hers with coconut oil and maple syrup and then “dunk them in some melted dark chocolate and crushed pistachio dust,” for a fancy twist. Be like Jessie.
