Good Morning and Merry Christmas!
Today is Christmas Eve and Dylan is super excited about Santa's visit tonight! We've conjured a yummy and healthy sampling of cookies for the Jolly Man and stuffed our Itzy Ritzy Lunch Happens™ Bento Lunch Box with enough to fill his "bowl full of jelly"!
Included in the sampling of cookies for Santa are homemade Graham Cracker Gingerbread Men Shaped Cookies (recipe courtesy of Catherine McCord's Weelicious Cookbook), three Carrot Cake Cookies (also of the Weelicious Cookbook, only modification is the substitution of raisins for nuts), two Honey Banana Greek Yogurt Cookies (recipe from Epicurious.com - called for plain nonfat yogurt, but I substituted Chobani Champions Honey Nana Yogurt), and one Apricot Oat Bar (from the Williams Sonoma Cookbook for Kids).
Because these cookies were made with mostly organic ingredients, including whole wheat flour, these cookies should provide a sweet and healthy burst of protein and fiber for Santa to carry on his worldwide flight!
All ingredients, with the exception of the Chobani, are courtesy of Mommy's fave grocery store - Trader Joe's! Dylan wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas and hopes Santa leaves you all something special under the tree tonight!
Happy Holidays to all!
