Very Healthy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Recipe: @mindfulbymadeline

I found a healthier take on snickerdoodle cookies, and I couldn’t be more impressed. These tasty treats are gluten-free, vegan, and packed full of flavor. These snickerdoodles contain various delicious spices and herbs such as cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon, so the flavor is super dynamic. They are sweetened with monk fruit and coconut sugar – unrefined sugar that won’t spike your blood glucose levels. Happy snacking!
