Whole Wheat Cinnamon Cookies

My son loves cinnamon, anything cinnamon. He loves cinnamon toast, cinnamon bread, cinnamon rolls. You get the idea.

He enjoys snickerdoodle cookies. I enjoy them too, but I wanted something a little different. So I tweaked my favorite snickerdoodle recipe to come up something a little healthier. This recipe uses whole wheat flour and incorporates cinnamon into the batter instead of rolling the dough into balls and then in cinnamon and sugar.

These are really good and my son loves them. They work for me because they are healthier than most snickerdoodles.

  13. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, these turned out delicious. I too have been trying to add whole wheat into our meals, and I am very excited to find so many recipes here :)

  14. These look like they will come out soft and chewy. Is that the case, or are they crunchy?
