Our Favourite Healthy Holiday Treats

There may not be any holiday parties this year, but we can all still spread a little cheer with homemade holiday treats.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite recipes for cozy winter days. These recipes are delicious and loaded with goodness. Make them for yourself and your family, or make a few batches to package and deliver (safely) to friends!

 


Hot Apple Cider

Have you ever made your own hot apple cider? Making cider from scratch is easier than you think - and it's a million times tastier (and healthier!) than the stuff you mix from a powder. The best part? It makes your house smell amazing

To make hot apple cider, combine 10-12 quartered apples, 2 quarter oranges, 4 cinnamon sticks, 1 tablespoon of whole cloves, and a small nub of fresh ginger in a large pot. 

Fill with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let simmer for 2 hours. Mash the softened apples and oranges, and simmer for another 30 minutes - 1 hour. 

Use a fine-mesh strainer to strain and discard the solids. Stir in sweetener to taste (we like 1/3 - 1/2 cup of maple syrup!). 

Serve warm, or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

 

Chocolate Peppermint Protein Brownies

Give yourself a break from the shortbread with this delicious and healthy recipe for chocolate mint protein brownies. Packed full of protein, light on sugar, and loaded with the goodness of whole wheat, these brownies will satisfy your hunger while tricking your taste buds.

 

Rumble Chocolate Zucchini Loaf

You’d never know this rich and decadent loaf contains a whole carton of Dutch Cocoa Rumble, and an entire medium zucchini! This recipe makes a loaf so delicious, you could ice it and call it cake. But with maple syrup, spelt flour, olive oil, and Rumble’s 20 grams of protein, it’s healthier than it has any right to be.

 

Double Chocolate Protein Power Bites

These bites have it all: protein, fibre, fats, and minimal sugars. They taste just like double chocolate cookie dough, but are made with fresh nut butter, shredded coconut, rolled oats, and Rumble Dutch Cocoa! The best part? You don’t have to bake - just mix all of your ingredients together, roll into balls, chill, then enjoy.
