Gluten-free Protein Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies, so I took my favorite recipe by Bakerella and made substitutions to make low-sugar gluten-free cookies that contain protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. I was truly surprised that these cookies turned out as soft and moist as they did since cooking with protein powder and gluten-free ingredients can be hit or miss.

Let me know what you think and if there are any variations you would use.

Ingredients
  1. ¼ cup flaxseed (or fiber blend like NOW Foods Fiber-3)
  2. 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  3. ¾ cup sugar-free cinnamon protein powder
  4. ½ cup almond flour
  5. 1 tsp cream of tartar
  6. ½ tsp baking soda
  7. ¼ tsp salt
  8. ¼ cup butter
  9. ¼ cup coconut oil
  10. ¾ cup powdered Stevia (or other sweetener)
  11. 1 egg
  12. 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  13. ¼ cup powdered Stevia (or other sweetener)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together flaxseed, chia seeds, protein powder, almond flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a mixer (or a large bowl using a fork), cream butter, coconut oil, and ¾ cup stevia on medium for about 2 minutes.
  5. Add the egg and mix until combined.
  6. Add the flour mixture and beat until combined.
  7. In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and ¼ cup stevia.
  8. Use a small 1 ¼-inch ice cream scoop to form balls. Release in the cinnamon-stevia mixture and roll until covered. When coated, you can shape them in a ball and place on the baking sheet.
  9. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the cookies begin to crack (they will look very soft but will firm up after they rest outside the oven). Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
Notes
  1. The cookies will look underdone but will continue to set while they cool. Be careful when removing the cookies from the pan as they may break if moved too soon.
  2. You may also use 5/8 cup vanilla protein powder + 1/8 cup ground cinnamon.

Hi there! I am a registered dietitian & certified personal trainer with a love of cooking and the outdoors! I created this blog to share my nutrition and fitness expertise and promote healthy lifestyles focused on disease prevention. I advocate for variety in food choices without restriction and encourage others to eat mostly nutrient-dense foods while including enjoyable foods. I am also passionate about fitness and recognize the benefit in moving a little each day!

  • Continuing #tacotuesday with some shrimp tacos at home. Threw some brown rice, beans, and spinach together with shrimp and added minced garlic, salsa, tapatio, cumin, chili powder, and a little salt for some great flavor! Topped with plain Greek yogurt and mozzarella cheese on whole wheat tortillas.
👉HINT: plain yogurt tastes surprisingly like sour cream which means you can get an extra dose of probiotics, protein, and calcium by making this simple swap!

  • I love #pesto so much that I've been putting it on everything: brown rice/sausage/veggie bowls, breakfast scrambles, and pizza!

Pesto is so easy to make and can be made so many different ways! Not to mention it's versatility and #positive nutrition profile, including unsaturated fats, #protein, #fiber, and many #vitamins and #minerals. The version I made here includes #walnuts + #sunflower seeds + #oorganics fresh herb #salad + #canola oil. A quick blend in my food processor was all it took to get a nice, smooth texture!

The basic #recipe includes:
🌰 Nuts/seeds
🌱 Greens
🥑 Oil
🧀 Cheese (optional)
🥄 Salt & pepper
  • Whipped up a batch of blueberry vinaigrette to pair with this strawberry, walnut, purple cabbage salad! Only thing missing is some goat cheese. Gettin in those #antioxidants #omega3s #vitamins #minerals 👌💪

  • My favorite #preworkout when I workout in the morning and don't have time for a full meal: #fruit + #water. Carbohydrates and fluid are all you need before exercise to give your body quick energy. Remember to fuel-up with some protein, carbs, and fluid #postworkout to replenish your glycogen stores, give your muscles the best opportunity to repair and grow, and rehydrate!
