Happy Holidays everyone!


There are so many reasons to love the holidays but of course my favorite part is the holiday baking đŸ™‚ I celebrate Christmas so all things Ginger are welcome!

I won’t be with my boyfriend during Christmas so I wanted to make some holiday treats for us ahead of time. This past weekend I made these Chewy Ginger Buckeyes & Whole Wheat Cinnamon Buns (both vegan of course!). I very much enjoyed both but was most in love with the buckeyes. With just a hint of molasses & ginger, these healthy treats were a Christmas delight for sure. My boyfriend liked the Cinnamon Buns better. I toasted them up a bit right before serving & they were perfect!


With either of these treats you can’t go wrong. They are sure to bring some holiday joy to your house & anyone you share them with. Today I am going to share the Ginger Buckeye recipe with you. Follow my blog & instagram @thekellydiet so you know when my Cinnamon Buns recipe is posted later this week!
