These gingerbread cookies put a deliciously healthy spin on the traditional holiday dessert. The almond-based cream cheese contains heart-healthy unsaturated fat, which reduces your LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol. Almonds also provide a dose of vitamin E, which prevents free radical damage, and magnesium, which boosts energy.



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon and clove powder in a bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the oil, agave and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to form a dough. If it is too wet (measuring varies), add a little more flour.
5. Roll out the dough between sheets of wax paper.
6. Cut out the cookies and place on parchment lined cookie sheets.
7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just browned.
8. Place dough in the refrigerator between rolling and cutting out the cookies to make it easier to cut them out.
9. Combine the honey with the remaining teaspoon of vanilla and the cream cheese. You can put it into a squeeze bottle to decorate, or use a knife.
