First things first, let’s talk about ingredients. You’ll need:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute (like stevia)
  • 1/4 cup light-brown sugar substitute (like Swerve)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

Now, let’s get down to business and bake some cookies! πŸͺ

  • Preheat your oven to 350 Β°F (180 Β°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This helps the cookies, not stick and makes clean up a breeze! 🌬️
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. These are your dry ingredients, and you’ll add them to the wet ingredients later on. πŸ‘©β€πŸ³

The applesauce keeps the cookies moist and delicious, while the sugar substitutes keep the calorie count low. 😍
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to over mix, as it can make the cookies tough. We want soft and chewy snickerdoodles! πŸ€—
  • In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and nutmeg. This will be your coating for the cookies, giving them that classic snickerdoodle flavor. πŸ₯°
  • Roll the cookie dough into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter), and then roll each ball in the cinnamon-nutmeg mixture. Place them on your prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Flatten them slightly with the back of a spoon. πŸ₯„
  • Bake for 8–10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
