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:

Crisp
Perfectly sweet
Super easy
Uber quick to make
+ Absolutely delicious

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

INSTRUCTIONS

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?

No-bake, no-stress. This light, creamy, fresh dessert is very simple, requiring only 8 ingredients and 15 minutes prep time (plus chilling). 

This chia pudding is delicious on its own—and even better when layered with home made strawberry compote. The only hard part of making this Strawberry Maple Chia Pudding is waiting six hours for the chia seeds to thicken, chill, and soak up the maple-almond-coconut liquid.

If you've got a calendar and can count a little bit in Spanish, you know what's happening today: Cinco de Mayo! It's that annual celebration of all things Mexican that is celebrated mainly in the Estados Unidos but we love to participate in the holiday by enjoying the dishes from one of the most beautiful countries in the world. 

This year, we are keeping it simple. Lately we’ve been all about that salad life. Salads are easy, light and there are so many options you can go for. Cinco de Mayo is the perfect occasion to expand out of your taco truck state of mind and try something other than a cheese quesadilla.
