The Kardashian-Jenners do not take holiday traditions lightly (25-day Christmas card reveal, 'nuff said). So naturally, each sister has a yummy festive recipe up her sleeve for family gatherings each year. To do her part, Kourtney Kardashian shared on her app her signature holiday cookie recipe for these healthy gingersnaps that she makes with all the kids of the collective bunch. (Looking for more easy recipe ideas? These healthy holiday crockpot recipes will save you so much time and stress.)

Just as you'd expect from health-nut Kourt, these gingersnaps have all the same ingredients, but her recipe makes sure to use organic everything. (Want to hack your own recipe?

Kourtney also modified her original recipe to make these gluten-free and dairy-free, so these are a no-brainer for holiday parties where you'd like to cater to a variety of dietary needs.
