The 'Chocolate Covered Katie' blog recently published a recipe for yogurt-covered peppermint squares. This time of year, it can be difficult to find holiday treats that are on the healthier side. These tasty peppermint squares provide a nutritious way to indulge in holiday desserts without the unfortunate sugar rush.
Although the dessert may look decadent, the peppermint sugar cookie bars are actually made from healthy ingredients. The sugar cookie batter is made form a combination of coconut oil, spelt flour and nut milk. The sugar used in the recipe can also be substituted with xylitol if you are interested in using a natural sweetener. Once the peppermint squares have been prepared, they are topped with a peppermint yogurt frosting made from non-dairy yogurt, powdered sugar and pure peppermint extract.
With so many desserts to choose from this holiday season, these healthy peppermint bars provide a healthy alternative.
