Skinny Cinnamon Cookies

If you read our blog, you know we are registered dietitians and personal trainers who are wild about our veggies, but it hasn’t always been this way!  We used to hate our veggies, but our taste buds have turned over and come along way!  But we’re not gonna lie; we’ve always had a wicked sweet tooth that we work hard to tame.  We’re constantly creating healthy, guilt-free sweets that won’t harm our health or our waistlines.  Say hello to our latest creation… Skinny Cinnamon Cookies!

These Skinny Cinnamon Cookies make the perfect dessert–they’re a good-size portion–and they’re portable–so you can take one with you and indulge in it to avoid succumbing to other unhealthy desserts.
What else makes these delish doodles guilt-free?

This recipe uses coconut sugar, which is made from the sap of the coconut plant and is a less-processed sugar alternative, but if it’s not available, feel free to use granulated sugar instead. The oat flour in this recipe not only makes these Snickerdoodles gluten-free, it’s another great way to sneak in more fiber into your diet! And with only 85 calories a serving, this is a perfect recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt!
