Healthier Snickerdoodles!

For Valentine’s Day, my friends and I are doing a “secret cupid” (kind of like a secret santa!) and for my “valentine” I made her cookies and got her candy! These cookies are so good, legitimately the best “healthy” cookies I’ve made. I have made like 3-4 batches with other recipes and they just aren’t as good as these! You must try these if you love sugar and cinnamon! Also most other recipes only have low calories because they make like 42 cookies, and just one isn’t satisfying! But two of these is just perfect, although I’d prefer to have the whole plate 😉
Healthier Snickerdoodles (serves 12, makes 24 cookies)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (I used Ideal)
  • 1⁄3; cup brown sugar (I used the Splenda blend)
  • Ÿ cup butter , softened
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • ž cup all-purpose flour
  • Ÿ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Ÿ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄8; teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄8; cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (or more if desired)
  • cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine 3/8 cup sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar and butter in bowl. Beat with a mixer until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. In another bowl combine flour, baking power, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and salt. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Shape dough into 24 balls.Combine 1/8 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar mixture and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten cookies with a glass. Bake at 400 degrees for about 6 minutes. Cool on pan for 1 minute and then remove from pan to finish cooling on wire rack.
