While one of our favorite things about the holidays is the delicious, decadent food we get to eat, sometimes we have to reign ourselves in a little bit. By lightening up our favorite holiday foods, we keep our health in tip-top shape while also avoiding some extra winter weight. Not to mention, lightening up on some foods makes it all the more reason to indulge in others (because who can resist that holiday cheese plate anyway?). But good-for-you recipes don't have to be as depressing as they sound. These 11 cookie recipes are so delicious, you'll never believe how healthy (or lightly less unhealthy) they really are.
