When I was a kid my cousin Shelah and I would make sinckerdoodles every time we got to hang out. It was our tradition. We were kids so our job was limited to rolling the cookie dough into balls, and my favorite part, rolling the little nuggets into a bowl of cinnamon and sugar.

Snickerdoodles contain a lot of butter and sugar and other not mega healthy ingredients, but I’m not about to give up my love of making and eating them that easily. In a bunch of trail and error, I came up with a healthier recipe that tastes just as good as I remember they did in my cousin’s kitchen. Try out the recipe and let me know how you like my favorite cookies!
