This recipe for Gluten-free and Vegan Snickerdoodles uses bananas, oat flour, apple sauce, and other simple ingredients to keep this snickerdoodle recipe on the healthier side without losing flavor. Enjoy these healthy snickerdoodle cookies with your afternoon coffee or a late-night treat!
So I’m going to be honest… I’m not really the biggest fan of recipes that use bananas as a substitute to make a recipe “healthier”.
I’m very particular with the recipes I’ve done this with because sometimes the banana flavor is overwhelming. This can leave the recipe tasting completely different than the classic version!
However, I am VERY much into banana bread, and these snickerdoodles are somewhere in-between banana bread cookies and snickerdoodles.
Therefore I have decided to name them banadoodles!
It’s pretty apparent my love for banana bread runs deep. I even made 7 Dairy-Free Versions with ONE batter HA.
Sweet potato, banana, and apple cinnamon recipes never go out of style if you ask me.
Lately, I’ve had this problem where I NEED something sweet with my afternoon coffee.
It’s that 2:00 PM slump where you’re like, “What am I even doing at work? What day is it? Can I go take a nap?”
Having an afternoon treat is my way of pushing through until 3:00 PM or 4:00 PM when my creativity starts to flow again.
And that’s how these bananadoodles were born! AKA Gluten-free and Vegan snickerdoodles!
I developed this vegan snickerdoodle recipe a few weeks ago (which you know if you follow me on Instagram ) and am SO sorry it’s taken me this long to share it.
Things have gotten crazy busy since I’m starting to see clients for my Nutrition + Health Coaching business.

I’m usually doing the interviewing, so it was fun being on the other side!
BACK TO THE VEGAN SNICKERDOODLES
This snickerdoodle recipe makes roughly 18 cookies depending on the size.
I used a cookie scoop for the ones shown in my pictures, but I was very generous will how much I stuffed the cookie scoop!
I gave some of the vegan snickerdoodles to Michael to take the work, but then single-handedly ate the rest. #NOREGRETS
