Santa Claus is coming to town, so you better get to baking him some sweet treats! If you’re looking to gain some bonus points with the big guy, try a cookie recipe with a bit of a twist. He can’t deliver your gifts on an empty stomach so here are some recipes he is sure to love. Your friends and family will definitely want to try them too, so make sure you whip up a batch for upcoming holiday parties.
Scrumptious dark chocolate chunk pecan cookies made with garbanzo beans will have Santa, as well as the rest of your little elves, truly satisfied this holiday season. This super simple cookie recipe combines the rich taste of dark chocolate with the seasonal tastes of maple syrup and pecans. It’s gluten-free and heart healthy. The garbanzo beans provide an excellent source of fiber, so even Santa can feel healthy while enjoying all the cookies his heart desires (or as many as you choose to share). It only takes a total of 40 minutes to prep, bake and serve these cookies, leaving you with plenty of time to finish wrapping those last minute gifts.
Why make dozens of cookies when you can just make Santa a cookie pie? This is truly the gift that keeps on giving. A deep dish cookie pie will go great with an ice cold glass of milk. Even though it’s gluten-free, it’s still very filling and tasty. Top off a slice with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce to satisfy your sweet-tooth. Don’t know what dessert dish to bring to your office party? Looks like you’ve found it! This will be a hit with everyone. You might even need to bring two!
