Posted by Anil Kumar G on December 17th, 2020


Christmas is everyone’s dose of fun and joy. Planning is the best way to make it perfect. With just a few days left for Christmas, everyone is busy making their last-minute gift baskets, Christmas treats, prepping gifts and so on.

This magical season is all about eating, indulging in good food, sweets and making merry. But shouldn’t we all be a little health conscious while not taking away the sweetness of this festive day completely? 

The best way to make a holiday cheerful and joyful would be to satisfy the cravings of Christmas confections. But, it doesn’t mean that you need to fill your tummy with junk food. You can enjoy the wonderful time of the year with healthy Christmas treats ranging from gluten-free treats to vegan ice-creams.


Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Cake

This super fudgy cake is the easiest holiday cake recipe to make. But, people who are not vegans must be sceptical about this cake if it is worth serving. Let me tell you that if you think in a certain way, you are absolutely wrong.

This is a nutritious delight made with almond flour and coconut flour that is rich in protein, fibre, etc. Dairy-free and gluten-free, this chocolate peppermint cake will surely be a hit. Also, it can easily be made into cupcakes if you prefer. It is always full of excitement to present this beautiful chocolate layered cake.

Vegan Peppermint Ice Cream

The smoothest, creamiest ice cream is here for the season. It’s pretty darn cool to make this creamy ice cream at home. With the goodness of full-fat coconut milk, it surely makes anyone drool. This vegan ice cream is also dairy-free.

Scoop out the ice cream and top it with fudge sauce. It is an awesome cold-weather treat.

Get your hands ready to make this creamy ice cream.

Peanut Butter Protein Balls

It is one of the gluten-free, vegan options available for the holiday season. These energy bites are loaded with oats, peanut butter and flax seeds. These protein balls are not needed to be baked and are super easy to make.

You never get the need to turn your oven on while making this recipe which includes oats, peanut butter, flax seeds, honey and chocolate chips. This is a perfect snack that gives you energy throughout the day.

Chia Seed Cookies

If you are a cookie lover, then this recipe is for you. There is no denying that chia seeds are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Usually, some people avoid chia seeds in puddings or smoothies as the texture of seeds is soft and jelly-like. But, this recipe has crunchy chia seeds in it.

The best part about this recipe is that you cannot taste chia seeds while eating cookie unless you see it with your eyes. So, there is no problem if you are someone who doesn’t like the taste of chia seeds. You can have them with peanut butter or maple syrup and enjoy the cookies loaded with proteins and fibre.

Cranberry Crumble Bars

Cranberry crumble bars are really irresistible even to the last crumb. They are all about the layers of delicious buttery almond crumbs. You really can’t get enough of these bars with brown butter crust, jammy cranberry layer, and a crumb topping.

Top it up with a nice scoop of vanilla bean ice cream for more indulgence. This surely is a perfect healthy dessert for this festive season.

Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

Cookies don’t get any cuter than these gingerbread cookies. It is a recipe which is both delicious and fun to make. People who love being creative can show their skills here. Cutting the cookie dough into different funny shapes is a creative activity. With just the right amount of spice, these turn out to be soft and chewy to have.

Generally, the recipe of gingerbread cookies includes egg. 

But, the ingredients of vegan gingerbread cookies are pretty much close to the aforementioned cookies except for adding the egg. This is a perfect vegan treat for this holiday season.

Baking and decorating recipes is something which everyone loves. Go for the gluten-free, vegan and healthy treats this time. Your guests are going to love it. Try these fantastic and healthy recipes for the most magical time of the year.
