As a nutritional health coach I am always on the hunt for a healthy cookie I can share with clients, friends and family. I recently discovered these amazing Snickerdoodle Cookies and wow…get ready to love them! I didn’t think I was a cookie fan, but these are light and tasty and about 100 calories each, making them a great “treat” when a sweet craving hits and a fun treat to share with family and friends at your next get together. And of course there is something pretty wonderful about the smell of cinnamon and sugar filling the house!
3/4 C oat flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 C coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract (optional)
2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/4 C coconut oil, melted
*Combine additional 2 tsp. cinnamon with 1 Tbsp. coconut sugar in a large ramekin and set aside
Whisk dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl (I used a fork in place of a traditional whisk).
Stir in the vanilla, almond extract (if using), milk and melted coconut oil. Mix by hand until well combined.
Scoop dough by large spoonful and roll into balls, then roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture that had been prepared and set aside, reshape as needed.
Place cinnamon and sugar covered balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 1-2 hours (this will help ensure cookies are light and fluffy).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove baking sheet from refrigerator and place to bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Let cool approximately 10 minutes on the sheet before trying to remove.
Eat and Enjoy!
