Mini Snickerdoodles
by Swanson Health
These cookies don’t get their sweet flavor from sugar. Instead, we use erythritol due to its low glycemic index. The other distinguishing flavor comes from cinnamon. Instead of butter, we used coconut oil. Full of medium-chain fatty acids, coconut oil is perfect for cooking and baking. Combining these ingredients with vanilla and cream of tartar gives these cookies the unmistakable snickerdoodle taste and look.
