20+ Dye Free Holiday Cookies

Dye free holiday cookies are perfect for those concerned about or living with food allergies. There are also health concerns with the use of food dyes, so here are some dye free holiday cookie recipes  for you to bake up for the holidays!

When I was a kid, I remember my sister developing an allergy to a couple of food dyes, and I also remember how difficult it became for her to enjoy simple things like a candy cane during the holidays. Her problems didn’t stop at edible substances, though. There are food dyes in everything from cereal to hair shampoo, so label reading became a necessary evil for her and many others like her.

Thankfully in part to the increasing number of food allergies in children and adults, enjoying holiday cookies doesn’t have to be a complete nightmare. Food scientists have been able to develop dye free sprinkles, and of course, there’s always the option of natural food coloring.
