Excuse me as I seem to stick to certain flavors for a week before moving to a new one.

One week it’s pumpkin as seen in these cookies, this fudge and these cake pops

Then next, it’s banana, in the form of no bake blondies and cake cookies.

What else? Oh yeah. Apples. Apple Pie French toast oatmeal, no bake brownies and protein bars

It seems like this week has been a hit with the cinnamon and I don’t mind one bit…except for the fact that I’ve run out of my all time favorite cinnamon. I know this sounds so silly, but I swear NO CINNAMON IS CREATED EQUAL. I’m not even kidding you- Back in Australia, I even did a cinnamon test by using different types in oatmeal over the course of the week.

Dutch cinnamon (using Australia’s most popular brand)- Tasteless. Even 1 tablespoon in oatmeal just turned it gritty. 

Cinnamon (generic store bought brand)- Same as above. Less gritty (oh, the irony).

Cinnamon sticks (Australia’s most popular brand) It looked like a floating cigar. It also smelled nice but had no flavor. 

Cinnamon sticks (Gourmet brand which cost an arm, a leg and Niki’s weave) What a waste of Niki’s weave.

Costco Saigon Cinnamon (The size of a small child and 1 shake = a cinnamon shower)– BINGO .

Oh, Costco.

My mum tried to convince me that your yearly membership price of $60 was a waste- She would have been right, had it not been for your saving grace in cinnamon form. (Non-Australian friends- The Australian Costco is NOTHING like what you are probably used to. We don’t have any of the bulk fancy almond butters, grains etc. Just ramen noodles and cinnamon).

Let’s talk today’s epic recipe for Snickerdoodle cookie dough for one because friends, it’s a game changer. It’s no secret that having breakfasts which taste like dessert is pretty standard and by pretty standard, I mean a staple. While today’s recipe wasn’t specifically intended to be eaten for breakfast, it was the alternate to the pumpkin cookie dough for one.

FOR ONE. FOR ONE. FOR ONE. 

AKA for my greedy self and no one else.

This healthy snickerdoodle cookie dough for one tastes exactly like snickerdoodle cookie dough batter before you place it in the oven. Sorry, correction. Before you place 3/4 of it in the oven, after tasting the batter multiple times. Unlike traditional snickerdoodle cookie dough, this healthy version is packed full of the good stuff without sacrificing on taste. It’s creamy, thick and when eaten cold from the fridge= perfection. It’s packed full of protein, fiber and even a serving of fruit! Not only is it gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free, it comes with a paleo and refined sugar-free option. 

For those who want some extra delicious (and healthy!) sweetness on top, feel free to add the cinnamon-spiked glaze. Totally not necessary and by totally not necessary I mean you’d better top your damn healthy snickerdoodle cookie dough with it. 🙂 

Time-saving hack- This is freezer friendly and can be batch made- I made 5 servings in one go (10 all up, including 5 of the pumpkin cookie dough) and had breakfast set for 10 days.

Okay, fine. 7 days. 3 servings were snacked on.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  2. 1/2 cup protein powder of choice (I tried a brown rice blend, casein brand and paleo brand)
  3. 1 tsp cinnamon
  4. 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour (can substitute for coconut flour or almond flour for paleo version)*
  5. 1 T + granulated sweetener of choice (optional)**
  6. 2 T cashew or almond butter***
  7. 1 T maple syrup (can sub for agave or another sticky sweetener)
  8. 1 T + dairy free milk of choice****
For the optional Cinnamon glaze
  1. 1 T coconut butter, melted
  2. 1 T vanilla protein powder
  3. Milk to thin out
  4. cinnamon and granulated sweetener for dusting
For the protein packed Cinnamon Roll Glaze
  1. 3 T vanilla protein powder
  2. Milk to thin out
  3. Cinnamon for dusting
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the applesauce, protein powder, cinnamon, flour of choice and sweetener and mix very well.
  2. In a small microwave-safe dish or stovetop, melt the nut butter with the maple syrup and add to the dry until fully incorporated.
  3. Using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk of choice until desired consistency is reached. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, prepare your cinnamon glaze by combining all ingredients and thin out with milk of choice until an icing is formed. Pour icing over the cookie dough, dust with cinnamon and sugar and enjoy!
Notes
  1. * If you use coconut flour, you will need to add considerably more dairy free milk of choice
  2. ** My protein powder(s) were sweetened so I used 1 tablespoon. Adjust to suit your desired taste.
  3. *** I prefer almond or cashew as they aren't overpowering- Peanut butter was too prominent
  4. **** Depending on the combination of flour and protein powder you use, you'll need more.
  5. This can be prepped in advance and is freezer friendly.

  1. I think I sang the ode to cinnamon a few times myself in the last two years. Cinnamon and I have a deep-rooted, life-long love affair. I never test tasted different brands though. Maybe I pick up a few samples later…. I always buy the big 500g container and I just started my third this year. It’s the only spice on the kitchen counter – always in arms reach. I put cinnamon in everything! Heaps of it. When a recipe I make contains cinnamon I usually triple the amount.
    I like those cookie dough recipes. Cookie dough for lunch makes me feel like a rebel ?

  2. Oh yes, while labeling foods isn’t in there are good and bad types of cinnamon. Nasty/tasteless cinnamon can ruin a good dish. And because I know we both like our cayenne pepper: shocking differences in this realm, too. It took me way too long to finish that package of the bad kind until I allowed myself to move on to my go-to good brand.
    Keep the cookie dough recipes coming! Once I can allow myself the splurge on protein powder again 🙁 I’ll try one of them.

  3. I have some of that Saigon cinnamon from Costco in my spice cupboard right now! I want to run upstairs and make a cookie now. Be back in 5 minutes…hopefully not wearing Niki’s weave. 🙂

  4. OMG you are exactly like me! I get obsessed with a flavor and then make ALL the things with it…this week was ALL pumpkin for me!
    BUTBUTBUT I LOVE cinnamon so I want to dip my face into this. Pinned!

  5. There are just some cinnamons out there that taste SO BAD. I love fresh cinnamon sticks for sure! Those are the bomb! This cookie dough looks to die for—I could start licking my computer!
    Costco is the place where I get ALL my Greek yogurt, acai, chia seeds, sprouted cereals, seaweed and vegan protein powder! It’s the best!

  6. I’m going to have to start trying some of these recipes of yours instead of just drooling over them. I love that this is freezer friendly. I’ve noticed my kids making cookies of their own concoctions in the microwave and I have no idea where they are getting the recipes since that is definitely not my forte. But yours would be much better for them!

  7. Snickerdoodles are one of my all time favorite cookies ever. Thank you for creating a snicker doodle recipe that’s appropriate for breakfast.

  8. Um I just so happen to like the word sheer, especially when it comes to negligee.

    Also, I have Saigon Cinnamon in my pantry right now. It’s what I used in my apple pie yesterday. Have you been to the American Costco’s? You’d love it. My in laws have a membership. They keep me well stocked.

  9. I adore cinnamon and you are so right, the costco one is the best, hands down! There is no other like it!
    I am missing costco like crazy right now (and the UK one is like the Aussie one, no fancy nut butters and the like but still so good). Perth doesn’t have one… There is rumour of one coming and I really hope it does!

  10. I made peanut butter cookie dough instead by subbing for PB and opt out the maple syrup, but increase the milk. Heavenly! You’re the only person I trust with healthy recipes that don’t taste healthily at all! ?
