A collection of healthy recipes to bake this Christmas! Here are 12 brilliant healthy recipes from various food blogs – one for each day in the countdown to Christmas!

Time is whizzing by, and it’s now only 12 days until Christmas Day!

People all over the world will be writing their Christmas lists – whether that’s wishlists for items they hope to receive on the 25th, or a checklist for some last-minute Christmas shopping. In my case, it might be an ingredients list for Christmas baking. Or even better: A Christmas recipes list…

Of course, the true 12 days of Christmas are after Christmas, but I’m giving you the recipes now so that you can make them before Christmas. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for next Christmas – and that’s a whole year and 12 days away! (But you might want to bookmark this ready for then anyway, just in case you don’t manage to make all of these this year😉).

[I made this one, thinning the batter down to get 3 large, thin crêpes. That way, they cooked within seconds, yet were still strong enough to hold the ice-cream, molasses & cinnamon! Smaller, thicker pancakes like in Amanda’s photos would be super delicious too, and I’m going to make them that way next time!]
