Christmas Cookie Recipe with Coconut Oil: Butterless Cookies!

The holidays are here and it’s time to cozy up with the family and bake some cookies! There are so many ways you can incorporate coconut oil when you bake, and this is just one of them. For this recipe we are going to use coconut oil (our favorite healthy fat!) in place of butter. 

Coconut oil gives the cookies body and delicious flavor. Usually coconut oil is solid at room temperature so all you have to do is put it in the microwave to melt it. It’s super easy and you’ll be able to bake these for your upcoming Christmas or New Years party - your friends and family will be thanking you!

It’s a win from us if we can bake cookies without butter! The coconut oil gives them a fabulous depth of flavor and also has great benefits like speeding up your metabolism, blood sugar control, and making you feel full longer. Along with that, coconut oil helps to increase good cholesterol levels, and protect your skin and hair so why wouldn’t you want to bake cookies with coconut oil?!
