Chewy, soft and filled with cozy winter spices! These are also gluten-free! These are like iced oatmeal cookies with a little hint of winter spices perfect for this Christmas season. Enjoy with a cup of warm milk or your favorite cozy beverage!
I can’t believe it’s the last Christmas I have before baby comes in 12 weeks, which is crazy to me! I’m currently 29 weeks so time is definitely flying by. I have majority of all the things we need for baby (thank you Black Friday sales!) so we need to work on our nursery pretty soon! Maybe once the Christmas holiday season ends because things have been busy for us!
Third trimester fatigue is real though – I’ve been so tired and feel out of order by 3pm. I’m trying to get ahead of creating recipes so I can continue sharing for a few weeks after baby comes! I’ll just have everything drafted up ready for you all! 🙂
I know this is going to be a difficult season but I’m ready to face the challenges. It’s only going to grow me up in my relationship with God, marriage with my husband and push myself to my limits. I mean, SO many moms go through this!
I’m pushing myself to make as many recipes and cook whenever I can! I have symphysis pubis dysfunction so it hurts when I move too quickly, walk long periods, stand up from sitting or get out of my bar, turn over in bed or stand on one leg. I just need to be careful when moving and I’ve been stretching and doing some exercises to help with the pain! The belly brace band is super helpful right now! I wear it all the time when I’m cooking to help with my belly and back for support.
These cookies are chewy and so soft! I love the flavor of gingerbread cookies, bread, cakes and muffins! It’s so cozy and is perfect warm with a cup of my favorite winter drink!
Try this recipe to having on your table for those Christmas parties or for Christmas morning for the family!
