Healthier Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Recipe
Today I am sharing a healthier version of a soft, Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe. You can’t beat the aroma of freshly baked cookies, it is such a comforting feeling. As cookies go, it’s harder to make them super healthy because they should be considered a sweet treat and taste good.
♥ What has changed in this snickerdoodle recipe?
A traditional snickerdoodle cookie is typically made with basic ingredients such as butter, sugar and flour, then rolled in cinnamon sugar. So there isn’t too much that I can change, but I managed it by adding almond flour for fiber and protein, egg to give it softness, I replaced honey for sugar, used gluten-free flour to keep it gluten-free and for the cinnamon sugar coating, I used coconut sugar with cinnamon. The reason for the coconut sugar it has a low GI, so no sudden spikes in blood sugar. These cinnamon flavoured cookies are probably one of the easiest recipes as far as cookies go. The best part, this snickerdoodle tastes just as delicious, well I think even more flavourful with added health benefits.
So all in all this cookie is healthy-ish. Did I mention the cookie melts in your mouth YUM! The best part, kids LOVE snickerdoodles, so now you can offer a healthier cookie to your family 🙂 Enjoy!
