12 days of healthy christmas treats + 2 drinks | Sprouted Fig

We’ve got snow! As in, a lot of it. Not just that thin pretty layer of white stuff. No, BUCKETS. I couldn’t be happier. Yes, it’s hard to get out of the house, and yes, a lot of trees have fallen and yes, I had to cancel a lunch date with an amazing friend (very sad actually) – but it’s so pretty. Everything looks like a winter wonderland and it’s beautifully quiet outside.

All that snow makes me think of Christmas. I can almost taste the Christmas spirit already. Oh how I can’t wait for December.

There’s still one week until the first Sunday in advent (a Danish thing – we count the last 4 Sundays up to Christmas eve) and 9 days ‘till December, but I am already dreaming of all the delicious stuff I am going to make this December. Here are all the treats I plan on making. Bring on December!

Cookies

Us Danes have a big tradition for Christmas cookies. We have whole bunch of traditional Christmas cookies. Every grandma makes her own “brown cakes” and every family one special cookie that everyone loves. Here are four

HEALTHY BROWN CAKES – Danish ginger cookies – crsispy thin small cookies with heaps of spices and a crunch of almond

VANILLA WREATHS – Cute, sweet cookies shaped like wreath with vanilla and almonds

GINGER COOKIES – Super delicious gluten free ginger cut-out cookies

GINGERBREAD MEN – Sara B’s extremely delicious ginger bread men made with blackstrap molasses

Small sweet bites

For when you get tired of cookies (lol, as if). Christmassy nuts and perfect chocolate treats.

CINNAMON MAPLE CANDIEDPECANS – Über delicious bites of yumminess

CHOCOLATE DIPPED CLEMENTINES WITH SEA SALT – Best. Idea. Ever. So healthy and simple.

HOMEMADE RAW CHOCOLATE – I’ve been dying to try homemade chocolate forever and these bars look so good. For English, try To Her Core’s amazing recipe here.

PECAN PIE CHOCOLATE CUPS – To words: pecan pie and chocolate (okay, that was three, but whatever). What a combination!

HEALTHY RUM BALLS – Because nothing beats rum balls – and they are perfect on a Christmas snack platter.

NATURAL PROTEIN RAW BARS WITH ORANGE (link coming soon) – to make your Christmas treats very good for you

 

Baked goods

LUSSEKATTER – Gluten free saffron buns with raisins to celebrate the Swedish (adopted by the Danes) tradition Lucia.

FIG, HAZELNUT, APRICOT FRUIT LOAF – This just sounds so good and Christmassy. Yumm.

Hvor er det fantatsisk at vågne op til det danske vinter paradis dækket i sne. Ikke bare det der lille tynde lag pudder men bjerge og atter bjerge af smuk hvid sne. Ja, vi kan ingen steder komme i dag og ja, jeg måtte aflyse en frokostaftale med en veninde (virkelig øv faktsik) og ja, nogen træer er vælted – men det er så smukt! Og så dejligt stille.

Al den sne får mig bare til at glæde mig endnu mere til jul. Jeg er allerede helt vildt i julehumør. Og selvom der stadig er en uge til første advent og 9 dage til den første december er jeg allerede i fuld gang med juleplanlægningen. Her er alle de lækre ting, jeg skal lave i løbet af december – og så endda sunde. Kom så skønneste måned på året!

BRUNKAGER – Sunde brunkager. Jatak. Min favorit af dem alle.

CLEMENTINER MED CHOKOLADE OG HAVSSALT – Helt genial ide – jeg glæder mig allerede

HJEMMELAVET RÅ CHOKOLADE – Har været på min to-do liste i 100 år. Nu må det være tid

PECAN PIE CHOKOLADER – To ord: pakantærte og chokolade. Hvilken kombination!
