Barre3 founder concocts Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies and fat-blasting workout

See also

We have the perfect recipe for the holidays: Make guilt-free cookies, then burn them off with a fun fitness program that will have you dancing like Santa's elves - and looking just as slim. It's all from Sadie Lincoln, featured by Dr. Mehmet Oz for her successful barre3 exercise regime.

Sadie's fat-burning fitness DVDs include "Element: Barre Conditioning": It includes lengthening and flexibility as well as calorie-blasting exercises. You'll benefit from isometric holds to align and strengthen combined with small range of motion to get deep into the muscles until failure. Boost your metabolism by elevating your heart rate, then elongate your entire body.

But life has to include some joy - and when it comes to the holidays, cookies fulfill that goal. So Sadie's created her own flavorful, healthy version of traditional thumbprint cookies.

barre3: Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies Ingredients

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until a cookie-dough-like consistency is achieved.

Scoop out rounded spoonfuls.

Roll the dough between your palms to make a ball.

Roll that ball in the coconut.

Make a thumbprint in the center of the ball and drop in a few dried cranberries.

Place the finished cookies on a plate and chill in the freezer or fridge for an hour before serving.

Store in the freezer or fridge.
