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 are considered a sweet treat and taste good. 

How is this snickerdoodle recipe different?

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. Still, I managed it by adding almond flour for fiber and protein, egg to give it softness, replacing honey for sugar, and using gluten-free flour to keep it gluten-free. 

For the cinnamon sugar coating, I used coconut sugar with cinnamon. 


Why use coconut sugar in cookies?

The reason for coconut sugar is that it has a low GI, so there are no sudden spikes in blood sugar. This means no bursts of energy. You know the kind your kids get from refined sugar.

The best part is that this snickerdoodle tastes just as delicious. Well, I think even more flavourful with added health benefits. Another recipe you may enjoy is the Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Oat Snacking Cake!

 These cinnamon-flavoured cookies are probably one of the easiest recipes as far as cookies go. And kids love them!

So, all in all, this cookie is healthy-ish. Did I mention the cookie melts in your mouth? YUM! 

The best part is kids LOVE snickerdoodles, so now you can offer a healthier cookie to your family πŸ™‚ Enjoy!
