Hey if your new here, my name is Jenna. I’ve had this recipe blog for over 10 years now and I like to share WW recipes as well as other types of recipes. Many people who join WW are under the impression that a WW dessert has to have ingredients like fake sugars and some type of butter substitute. I’m here to tell you that you can HAVE a cookie without any of that in it AT ALL and still lose weight. You just have to have some self-control.

I’ve learned that you can lower points of recipes just by cutting back on the amount of sugar or butter added that the original recipe called for. However, baked desserts are really hard to make lower in points and still have them taste good. I'd rather have a real cookie anyway and still have it taste good. That's what weekly points are for.

  • Cinnamon - Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum

Recipe FAQS

How do you make snickerdoodle cookies Vegan?

Use a vegan butter instead of dairy butter. You can also use a flax egg instead of a regular egg to make the cookies vegan-friendly.

How do you make snickerdoodle cookies gluten-free?

Simply swap out the flour for a gluten-free blend or almond flour or any type of vegan flour.

Can I use Sugar Substitutes?

I don’t like working with sugar substitutes and that is why I don’t use them on this blog. I use real sugar. I’ve had bad experiences with trying different sugar substitutes in the past and my stomach didn’t agree with most of them. People ask me all the time if they can use a sugar substitute and if that is what you want to do then go for it? I’m not stopping you. 😉
