As a little cookbook teaser, I decided that I’m sharing TWO of the recipes from this eCookbook this week! Don’t worry; the book will still have a couple of never-before-seen recipes I won’t ever share on the blog. Think of them as your own little Skinny Santa exclusive. ?
But these. This little cookie recipe is near and dear to my heart. Not only is it ringing in one of my favorite seasons in the best way possible, they may just be the single best recipe I’ve ever made for Fooduzzi.
But, without further adieu, allow me to present to you the Healthy Gluten Free Vegan Snickerdoodle. Aka. soft, chewy, cinnamon-y perfection.
The word “obsessed” doesn’t even begin to describe just how strongly I feel about these cookies. All of my taste-testers agreed – they’re perfect. And it all starts with the flour.
Almond flour and coconut flour are the dynamic duo that presents us with an unbelievably chewy cookie. There is absolutely no room for a hard-as-a-rock cookie on my holiday table, so you’re getting the complete opposite here! Extra fat like coconut oil and cashew butter also enhance that addictive chewy texture.
Snickerdoodles wouldn’t be snickerdoodles without cinnamon and cream of tartar. Be sure to use your best cinnamon for these cookies – you’ll really taste the difference!
Oh and, did I mention that these gluten free vegan snickerdoodles are refined sugar-free?! ‘CAUSE THEY TOTALLY ARE! Maple syrup lends a touch of warmth to these cookies, while coconut sugar gives us that twinkling, crystalized coating typical of a classic snickerdoodle.
Question: is your mouth watering as much as mine is right now?!
With these Healthy Gluten Free Vegan Snickerdoodles by your side, I just know you’re going to have a very happy holiday season. Let’s celebrate the start of this happy month, and a little sweetness to our lives – make these for your next holiday celebration! …or today. I won’t judge. ?Print
