Dark Chocolate Christmas Cookies

I’ve been struggling to get in the Christmas spirit again this year so what better way to get in the spirit than to make some Christmas cookies! A healthier version, of course. 

Ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flower
3/4 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup softened coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup holiday m&ms

Pour all of the ingredients together while continuing to mix after each ingredient is added.

Put spoonfuls of the mixture onto a cookie sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes.

How early do you start baking Christmas cookies?
What’s your favorite Christmas cookie to bake?
Do you prefer to bake with M&Ms or chocolate chips?
