These healthy no bake snickerdoodle bites are a protein-packed, low carb and keto-friendly snack! Ready in under 5-minutes, these soft and chewy energy balls are made with wholesome ingredients, are loaded with cinnamon and taste like raw snickerdoodle cookie dough! Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free.
No Bake Snickerdoodle Protein Balls
Snickerdoodle cookies are one of my favorite holiday cookies, mainly because I am OBSESSED with cinnamon.
I love cinnamon in my breakfast oatmeal, in protein bars and even in flourless fluffy cinnamon roll pancakes. It’s time for a holiday twist on the classic energy balls.
With the holiday season in full swing, I’m in need of a quick protein-packed energy snack. I mean, buying presents, testing holiday recipes AND photographing said holiday recipes DOES take it out of you.
When it comes to protein-energy ball recipes, I need them to use wholesome ingredients and be super low carb. The reason for this is that I find having keto and sugar-free friendly snacks between meals to keep me WAY more energized than a carb or strictly protein-rich snack.
SNICKERDOODLE ENERGY BITES
Not only are these snickerdoodle no bake bites ketogenic, sugar-free and low carb, but they also fit a paleo, vegan and gluten-free diet!
These Healthy No-Bake Snickerdoodle bites taste exactly like snickerdoodle cookie batter and I’m not even joking. Why? You’ll see in the recipe I post tomorrow.
The texture of these snickerdoodle balls are soft and chewy, and seriously remind me eating raw cookie dough, with a cinnamon sugar twist.
What do Snickerdoodle Cookies Taste like?
People often ask me what exactly is the snickerdoodle flavor, and I say CINNAMON SUGAR, but better. For those of you who aren’t huge fans of cinnamon, the flavor really isn’t overpowering- It’s light, delicious and almost like cinnamon toast.
Energy bites are a savior though- They literally take 5 minutes to whip up and you can jive to Britney Spears ‘Gimme More’ twice (10 minutes total) while they firm up and then voila- A sweet snack ready to…..dance with you?

Bloggers/Readers, do you notice similarities within a short time frame?
What are your thoughts on blatant copycat recipe rip-offs?

I wonder if I’ve seen copycats and not even realized it wasn’t your recipe! You definitely have a signature style that would be pretty ballsy and stupid to rip off – that said I guess it’s another sign you’ve made it big!
Thanks Michele- It’s so annoying when you see bloggers copy your style, your wording and even style photos like you do.
OMG I text Amanda all of the time about copycatted recipes that I see! A few lately, makes me angry. I pretty much stopped reading one blogger in particular who I feel does it often. Yes, of course, like you said, nothing is overly new and we will end up repeating similar ingredients but some bloggers are seriously copying…I caught one blogger who copied my post word for word as their own and I freaked on them in a polite, business like way and that took care of that 🙂
WHAT! Good for you you, Meredith- That is just wrong!
Luckily, no one has tried to copy me (that I know of) because apparently my content isn’t worth copying? There’s your sign! While I appreciate that there are only so many different ways to do the same thing, I agree with you–find A WAY to make it your own, and cite that you are taking inspiration from the other person. If anything, it improves your SEO so BOOM BETCHES.
I love snickerdoodles and gingerbread. That is my contribution to the food side of this discussion.
Hahahaha your contribution is always warranted and welcome 😀
i made snickerdoodle bites in August. So fun! But i think it’s because the name. Ya, i dont’ know who came up with this but i like it. And these! YUM!
p.s. i know you just wanted to copy me, right? Kidding —> LIKE SO KIDDING. Mine were different. haha, just being cornbread cotter.
I totally copied you! haha but I need to find this recipe of yours!
Oh man, you totally know my feelings about lazy bloggers who just copy other people’s work! There is a certain Klassy Kow out there who makes her entire living off of copying other people. That’s just lazy and shameful, and I’m surprised she can look at herself in the mirror at night. But enough of that soapbox…I’m off to make some Healthy No-Bake Snickerdoodle Balls today! 🙂
Don’t get me started. I swear I got ragey the other day….
I have to weigh in here because I love “ragey” as a word. Can I copycat that from you?
Sure. 🙂 Im changing my blog name to A man goes west. 😉
I can definitely say I have never seen a Camel Pie recipe out there. 😀 (sorry, had to!).
I can’t even anymore – this has been happening to my recipes for YEARS, and all I can do is know that … karma. Karma Happens. it does.
on the flip side, when I am adapting a recipe, I often don’t even POST a recipe, I’ll just talk about what I did differently and LINK TO THE ORIGINAL. and I always attribute inspiration. because, I don’t want that bad juju connected to MY blog, you know? *shudder* you get what you give, or something like that. life’s too short – if you are going to DO something, why not make it your own??!?! how is copying and cheating even FUN?
snickerdoodles. *snicker* I love them!
Right? It’s so disappointing and frustrating. I get so annoyed and disheartened.
Next week I’m posting an amazing, original recipe for whipped sriracha.
Yikes- stealing recipes is definitely not cool… karma will kick them in the butt for sure! Meanwhile… everyone else will be making these!
🙂 Thanks Jess!
Wow, I would be pissed if someone copied my recipes! Not that I make recipes, but you know what I mean. Do you approach the people who stole your work?
It’s hard to do it because they usually lie and act oblivious. Oh well, they can have fun making themselves look like copycats!
I think this is a really tough one. I mean on the one hand, as you say, nothing’s ever really new. You can get inspired by something you’ve read weeks later without realizing it or you pick up phrases or expressions others often use without the intention to copy someone. It certainly happens to me. And talking about copying recipes is extra hard. A banana bread is a banana bread and there’s only so much to change about it. Yet there’s the question if you really have to post another banana bread recipe when you didn’t really come up with anything fresh and new about it.
On the other hand what you describe here is clearly crossing the line. It’s irritating, wrong and in the end just plain sad for the copyist. I haven’t noticed something like this myself but I don’t read many blogs lately.
Now on to the snickerdoodles. I have always loved the name but I have never tried one before. The recipe looks delicious. You make me fat!
RIGHT? Cornelius Fudge would NOT approve!
Cornelius Fudge should send a Howler!
Copy cat blogging is the worst!!! It infuriates me! I have no issue if you want to share my recipe but PLEASE for the love link back and give some credit! It’s all about karma! 🙂
Right? Thanks so much, Andie!
When I see a copy cat recipe I’m just like *awkward* and wonder if the author of the original recipe will say anything. Even when bloggers copy topics and basically say the same thing, but don’t reference the 1st blogger I feel a bit uncomfortable.
But at the same time, nothing is new… and where did the 1st blogger find their inspiration?
I do think the 1st blogger has the right to say something, but I imagine most don’t.
Right? I’m so tempted to, if I see these bloggers do it again, you bet I will.
I know just what you mean about copycatting – ugh. But as SpaBettie said, it’s all about karma. And believe you me, it’s much better to do right by people than invite the bad karma that comes from the opposite. Maybe you can give your sister a job – going after all the bad boys and girls on the Internet. After all, she’s fearsome, right:)? Or your mother – she’ll set them straight, stealing from her boy. I’m kidding about a serious subject, but one that is much less important than snickerdoodles, which are delicious in baked and no-bake form when made by you 🙂
Hahahaha I’ll send the women in my family after them all! Thanks Laura!
Haha I think some of my recipes are too strange for people to copy! But I’ll definitely be on the look out for copycats of yours and Amanda’s recipes. It’s something I hadn’t really noticed before, but like you said NOTHING is really original any more so it’s hard to catch. Anyways, these look great! I love how you have a basic bite formula that can be made into so many different delicious varieties!
I think it also comes down to people copying your style, your writing words and photography style- Its just frustrating to see. Actually, my bite recipes are all different 🙂 I don’t use a base for any of them. 🙂
Yeah that makes sense! And I didn’t mean to imply your bite recipes are all the same! I just meant it’s cool that you got an idea for a fun type of treat and now have so many different versions of it! 🙂
i do see sometimes happening between famous bloggers (also its a sign you are influencing many people, go Arman!). I havent seen that with my recipes but i know where you are coming from. As someone in a creative field, you are constantly inspired by something around you but that doesnt make it right to copy others hard work and claim it to be yours. i think its always great to share others work and give them the due respect they deserve. i’d want people to credit me for my work and i will reciprocate the same way.
on a different note, i love these bites/bites esp since its no bake.
Thanks Dixya- You’ll love these, they are so good!
YUM! Snickerdoodle Bites! I need these in my life.
These are soo good!
