No matter the situation we’re in this Christmas, gift-giving is a tradition many of us will still take part in. For a lot of people, gifting will be a more mindful exercise—nothing lavish, just enough to send the Christmas cheer and wishes of good health for the coming year.
Chef Chris Paredes has come up with a gift that hits those two goals. This Christmas recipe for Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies by Chef Chris evoke the warmth, color and festive spirit we look forward to in the season. But we dare say it’s a healthier holiday treat, because of our choice of ingredients: 1) oatmeal, which is high in fiber, full of protein, and is known to lower cholesterol; 2) dark brown sugar which contains molasses that supply it with nutrients, plus it also has calcium, potassium and iron—stuff you won’t find in refined white sugar; and 3) Golden Fiesta Palm Oil which is cholesterol-free.
It’s always easy to wish someone good cheer and good health—but it’s always better when you mean it. That you made this gift with your own hands and time, just makes it a little more special. Here’s the recipe for the smarter Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies.
