4-Ingredient Gluten-Free, Vegan Snickerdoodle Cookies

Things I love about cookies: everything.

Things I don’t love about cookies: making them + having tons of cookies taunting me for a week straight.

Easy Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

I have found the answer to the age-old dilemma of ‘I am hardcore craving cookies, but I don’t want an entire batch taunting me for a week after I make them.’ Four-ingredient gluten-free, began snickerdoodles—you mix them in a food processor (reducing the amount of dishes), the recipe only makes about 12 cookies AND the ingredients are far healthier than your grandma’s recipe. Shout out to My Whole Food Life for making these possible!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 Cup cashew butter
  • 1/4 Cup maple syrup (I used light syrup I had hanging around in my fridge)
  • 1 Tsp. of cinnamon (make it generous)
  • 1/8 Tsp. sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Take out your food processor (I use my handy dandy Ninja Kitchen food processor) and combine all of the ingredients. batter(2)
  3. *Tip: I purchased a small jar of cashew butter (1 ½ Cup total), so all I did was separate ¼ Cup from the jar and use the rest, rather than measuring 1 ¼ Cup total.
  4. Once all ingredients are combined, you’re ready to bake—yes, it’s THAT simple! Scoop the cookies onto the lined baking sheet (I used a cookie scoop).  I recommend flattening the cookies rather than keeping them in a ball-like shape. You can use a fork to make the classic snickerdoodle design, too!
  5. Bake cookies for 10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet before removing.
  6. Store cookies in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Gluten-Free, Vegan Snickerdoodle Cookies

I brought the snickerdoodles into work and EVERYONE loved them. I’m pretty sure they didn’t realize the cookies were gluten free, vegan and much healthier than the more ‘classic’ recipes they may be used to.

Disclaimer: these are crumblier than usual cookies, which is why you have to keep them in the fridge. While this may be a turnoff for some, think of it this way—they would be PERFECT to add to a bowl of ice cream. You’re welcome.

Also, after making these cookies, you may have the idea that I did—this cookie mix would make a pretty darn good cheesecake crust! Hmmm, maybe that’s a project for another day.
