Christmas is just a couple days away, and these healthy vegan snickerdoodle's are the perfect healthy treat. This vegan snickerdoodle recipe isn't just any snickerdoodle recipe, it's made with whole foods plant based ingredients. I am obsessed with making these, because I get to enjoy all the delicious flavors of a traditional snickerdoodle without any refined sugars, or oils! I've put out a ton on whole foods plant based Christmas cookies this year, if you're interested here are some of my favorites:
- Samoa Truffles
- Plant Based Gingerbread Cookies
- Chocolate Pecan Pretzel Cookies
- Vegan Thumbprint Cookies
- Vegan Peanut Butter Balls
How to make vegan snickerdoodle's sugar-free:
While there is no way to cut out sugar 100% in a healthy way, there is ways to 100% cut out refined sugar. These healthy vegan snickerdoodles contain no refined sugar, and are naturally sweetened. How did I do it? Maple Crystals , I am totally hooked on Maple Crystals, because they are a low glycemic, high fiber natural sweetener. I get my maple crystals from Wilderness Poets. Wilderness Poets is my absolute favorite online retailer for bulk whole foods plant based ingredients. I especially love purchasing my nut butters from them, because they have some incredible nut butter options. I am honestly such a huge fan, and that is why I am an ambassador for them, because they truly align with my beliefs and values when it comes to food so well. As always, my code "VEGAN10" gets you $10 off your purchase!
How to Make these Healthy Snickerdoodles:
Let's talk about this recipe a little before I get into the directions. This recipe is first and foremost easy. I know that not everyone is like me and most people prefer to eat the cookies instead of making the cookies. If that sounds like you, then this vegan snickerdoodle recipe is for you! My mission this Holiday season was to create recipes that are not only healthy (I mean, every recipe on the All Natural Vegan is healthy), but that are a balance between fun to make, and easy to make. These healthy vegan snickerdoodle's were the perfect balance! You can make these healthy snickerdoodle's using a stand mixer, or just a bowl and spoon.

Delicious snickerdoodle cookies. I love how tasty and easy they are.
I love Snickerdoodles and these look so delicious. Using maple crystals is such a great idea!
I can't wait to make these, what else can I use instead of maple crystals?
You could use date sugar for another healthy option, and I am sure brown sugar would work as well!
