Healthy Christmas Snickerdoodles – How does a Snickerdoodle without any refined sugar sound? As long as you keep the ingredients pure and organic you can have a very healthy and guilt free Christmas!

How does a Christmas Snickerdoodle without any refined sugar sound? The holidays can be a time where lots of junk food is consumed. No need to fear that with these goodies and no need to go without your favorite treats! As long as you keep the ingredients pure and organic you can have a very healthy and guilt free Christmas.

Unrefined Sugars are a much better option than highly refined conventional sugar. Unrefined sugars (like honey, sucanat, and stevia) have more nutrients (like iron, magnesium, and calcium) where refined sugars have been stripped of any nutrients.

Whole Wheat is a great way to keep treats healthy. Whole Wheat can have benefits such as aiding weight loss, lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes, lessening chronic inflammation and protecting against heart disease among other things. After our experience with a gluten free diet, we think it should totally be in the superfood category!

Cinnamon contains both fiber and calcium with can protect against heart disease and help with colon health. Just the scent of cinnamon alone can boost brain function. It’s also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial.

Both Organic Pastured Butter and Coconut Oil are healthy fats. Healthy fats can aid heart health, hormonal health, brain health and help the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K.

 

Healthy Christmas Snickerdoodles

Ingredients

1 cup honey
½ cup butter
½ cup coconut oil
2 eggs
3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
1 ¼ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. Real Salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
½ cup sucanat sugar OR coconut sugar
2 Tbs. cinnamon

Directions

Combine all ingredients except sucanat and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. We like to use our KitchenAid or Bosch for easy cleanup. Mix until combined. Stir sucanat and cinnamon together in a pie plate. We like to use a pie plate so we can drop all the cookie balls in at once for extra convenience. This way you only coat your fingers in the mixture once. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out dough and roll into balls. Roll in the sucanat and cinnamon mixture to coat. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, depending on the size of your cookie. Watch closely so the cinnamon doesn’t burn. Let cool on a cooling rack.
