This Healthy (And Quick) Take on Linzer Cookies Is Here to Save the Holidays

We made it. It’s December 24. Before we break out our January resolution pants, though, we’ve got some healthy and quick holiday cookies to squeeze in.

PSA: making linzer cookies isn't easy. They look and are extra. The shapes. The sandwich technique. The perfect dusting of powdered sugar. Who has time for that when you still need to decorate your Christmas tree which you haven’t even bought yet, cook a five course Christmas dinner, wrap your Christmas presents that Amazon delivery guy should deliver today (fingers crossed) and keep your sanity while handling all this Christmas jazz. 

 


This super-easy, no-mixer-needed Smartbite take on Linzer cookies recipe doesn’t dirty any bowls and leaves plenty of time for the fun stuff—baking, decorating, and ticking off all those items from your last minute TO DO list, of course. Feeling better now? Put on our December playlist we made for you and let’s do this.

 

Friends, you’re going to LOVE these holiday cookies!

They’re:

〰 Crunchy
〰 Perfectly sweet
〰 Super easy
〰 Uber quick to make
〰 Absolutely delicious

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

PREPARATION

1. Remove unsalted quinoa rice cakes from the packaging and place them on a flat surface.

2. Use a large round cookie cutter to cut out circles from your rice cakes.

3. Use a small round cookie cutter (or whatever other shape you prefer) to punch out centres of half the rice cakes.

4. Alright! We’re in the homestretch. Spread your jam of choice (we went with strawberry!) on the unpunched cookies.

5. Then make it rain coconut flakes on the punched cookie tops.

6. Now it’s time to make the cookie magic happen: place the coconut sprinkled tops on the jammed up bottoms. Angels start singing. Wow. You did that. And it wasn’t even that hard, right?

🥫🍅🥑 November Is a Perf Month For This Hearty Sweet Potato Chili With Red Beans And Lots of Fritos

Quick, filling and made mostly of pantry ingredients, this chili/tortilla soup mash-up is calling your name. (Shhh. Listen closely.) Garnish it with the toppings of your choice: we like avocado, vegan sour cream, and chopped cilantro, but you can add shredded cheeze, pickled or fresh jalapeños, and/or sliced scallions or radishes. 

You can use any tortilla chips you like (we recommend going with Corn Quinoa crackers)—they add body and flavor to the soup itself and go on top for extra oomph. You could also fry or bake your own stale tortillas, cut into strips.
