Growing up, every year around the holiday our mom would ask us what kind of cookies we wanted to make. Liz’s reply was always “SNICKERDOODLES!” Needless to say, she loves these little bites of heaven. We’re not sure what our mom’s recipe was, but we do know it was probably loaded with sugar and butter. Since this is Liz’s favorite childhood cookie, we had to make a healthy alternative we could enjoy this holiday season.
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup protein powder
- 1/4 cup cashew or almond flour
- 1 egg
- 2 tbs melted unsalted butter or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup baking stevia
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
For the cinnamon sugar topping:
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbs baking stevia or sugar (we used Truvia)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray well with nonstick spray.
- In a medium bowl, beat egg, butter, vanilla and stevia until smooth.
- In another bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix by hand until thoroughly combined.
- Drop cookies by rounded tablespoons onto your prepared pan.
- Mix cinnamon and Truvia/sugar together and sprinkle on top of each cookie.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.
