HEALTHY CHRISTMAS COOKIES: CRANBERRY COCONUT COOKIE RECIPE

For awhile now, I’ve been trying to come up with a healthy, holiday cookie recipe that isn’t like all the others out there. These are so delicious and unique, so if you bring them to a holiday party, there won’t be ten other ladies bringing a similar one lol. Plus, there’s just something about those cranberries (fresh or dried) that looks so Christmassy!
