Recipe: Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

Cookie dough is a fantastic way to enjoy something sweet, and something perhaps a bit healthier than a store-bough treat laden with sugar, additives and gums. Like all of the cookie dough recipes on this blog, they are all gluten, grain, gum, soy, egg and dairy free. It takes about 5 minutes to assemble, then store in the fridge for a few days. Bake for 12 minutes or so, then let cool – they need a little time to set. Scroll down below the recipe and print a label for the lid of your storage container.

They are pretty nutrient dense, and could possibly double as a nutritious snack, or maybe even breakfast? Make them big or small and toss a spoonful of your favorite ice cream in between them!  Just yummy!
