Holiday Cookie Recipes: Low Carb Chocolate Crinkles

These low carb chocolate crinkles are a skinny version of the classic Christmas cookie. They might become one of your favorite cookie recipes! ItsYummi.com

This time of the year, I’m thankful for memories of family and food that I loved as a kid. For me, comfort food like my mom’s chunky applesauce and cookie recipes like these chocolate crinkles are a way for me to remember loved ones who are no longer in my life. This month, The Recipe Redux challenge is to take a favorite holiday recipe and give it a healthy makeover.
Perhaps unlike you, I grew up in a family that didn’t spend time in the kitchen baking treats. I’m not exactly sure why, but thankfully, my godmother loved to bake. Whenever I visited my godparents, there was usually a fresh batch of biscuits or a warm plate full of cookies or brownies around. Chocolate crinkle cookies were, and still are, one of my favorites, especially around the holidays. There’s something special about the chewy, chocolate loaded goodness that grabs my heart. The powdered sugar on my fingers and lips, falling down onto my clean shirt never bothers me one bit. It just makes the cookies taste that much better!

It seems a bit early for the snow to be falling, but reality set in this past weekend, and it looks like Winter has arrived early. To take full advantage of the situation, I decided to put together two holiday recipes for you. Well, technically, the holiday house isn’t a recipe, but you’ll be able to see the steps I took to create it. The important part is the creativity that you’ll use to make your peanut butter and graham cracker house your very own. First, I’m sharing my recipe for nutty graham truffles.

People have called cookies like this “Death by Chocolate”. Hmm… I think that’s a bit overly dramatic though, don’t you? After all, I’ve never heard of anyone actually dying from overindulging in chocolate OR from eating cookies. I lead a rather sheltered life and don’t get out much, though, so what do I know? Maybe that title is appropriate. Sheesh. #CookieDrama
