Forks Over Knives’ crunchier, bite-size interpretation of vegan of snickerdoodles, these cinnamon-dusted cookies are deliciously addictive. The high yield makes this recipe great for holiday cookie exchanges. Note: These Snicker Snaps are very crunchy, so be careful not to over-bake them, and be sure to store them in an airtight container as soon as they’ve cooled. They will stay crisp for five to seven days.

Snicker Snaps Vegan Snickerdoodles


  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour or oat flour
  • ½ cup pure cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk
  • 1½ tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pure cane sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 330°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flours, sugar, arrowroot, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a blender, combine the plant-based milk, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, applesauce, and vanilla. Blend well.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the bowl with the dry mixture. Combine to form a batter. Drop ½ tablespoon of the batter on the prepared baking sheet; repeat, leaving about an inch of space between each ball. Flatten the dough out into ⅛-inch-high disks. Adjust placement of disks as needed to ensure there is ½ inch of space between them.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle the dough with the mixture. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, until there is light browning on the tops and edges of the cookies. They will still be a bit soft; they will become crisp once they cool.
  6. Let cookies stand for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Place them on a cooling rack to crisp further.
