Clean Eat Recipe :: Snickerdoodle Crescent Rollups

Share


Ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 ounces of plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup Ideal Brown No Calorie Sweetener (Xylitol)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
dash of sea salt (approx 1/16 tsp)
3/4+ cup Almond Meal/Flour
----
Unsweetened Almond milk (for brushing rolls)
1 Tbsp Ideal Brown No Calorie Sweetener (Xylitol)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Directions:
1. Beat coconut oil and greek yogurt in a large bowl with an electric mixer for 30 seconds.
2. Add Xylitol, vanilla, and salt and continue to beat until mixed.
3. Slowly add almond meal/flour as you continue to beat the mixture - a dough will form.
4. Divide the dough into 2 round portions. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
----
Once dough is chilled:
5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
6. With a lightly floured surface, roll each ball of dough into 7-in rounds.  Lightly brush with milk to assimilate flour into dough.
7. Combine Xylitol, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Lightly sprinkle mixture evenly over dough.
8. Cut each round into 8 wedges.  Roll up each wedge starting with the wide end. Place cookies 1-in apart on a cookie sheet to bake.
9. Bake for 14-16 minutes.
10. Enjoy!

Makes 16 cookies.

  1. Is there anything I can use in place of xylitol. I prefer to just use honey or nothing at all, but I'm not sure what that would do to the consistency? Would I need to add more flour? (perhaps coconut flour?)
