Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles

Classic snickerdoodles made with whole wheat flour and filled with sweet, cinnamon flavor

Snickerdoodles have never been a holiday cookie I particularly enjoy that much but this recipe has changed my tune. Chocolate will always have my heart but these cookies have an irresistible, cinnamon sugar flavor that takes me straight into the holidays. 

These cookies are incredibly soft and light throughout. Most baked goods that are made with whole wheat flour turn out dense and heavy but these cookies are thankfully an exception. 

As with most cookie recipes, these snickerdoodles are quick and simple to make. Cookies are a great dessert to bring to family and friend gatherings or other social events because cookie recipes usually make quite a few cookies plus they’re usually pretty easy to follow. 

I hope you enjoy these whole wheat snickerdoodles this holiday season and throughout the year!
