White Chocolate Sniderdoodles

Happy Cookie Friday!

Averie, from loveveggiesandyoga..com, always comes up with great flavor combinations. One of her latest creations was a white chocolate snickerdoodle. You can check out her great recipe as well as her beautiful photos here:


Since those are two of my favorite tastes, I knew I had to whip up a gluten free version. I had a box of Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free cake mix, so I thought I would use that. It worked great, and using a cake mix always makes clean up a breeze! The taste was amazing!!!!! So good in fact, that the batch didn’t even make it 24 hours. Everyone in the house loved them. White chocolate pairs so well with the light snickerdoodle flavors. I was in heaven!


White Chocolate Snickerdoodles


White Chocolate Snickerdoodles (gluten free)

  • 1 box Betty Crocker’s gluten free yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick Earth Balance vegan butter (you could use regular butter also)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-4 tb of milk (I used soy milk)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or 2 blocks white chocolate baking squares, which is what I had on hand, so I used
  • 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon for rolling the cookie dough in
  1. Mix all the ingredients (except the sugar and cinnamon)in a large bowl. Add enough milk to make it a doughy consistency. I ended up using 4 tb.
  2. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Roll them around in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silpad. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Yum!


  1. I guess I made these two big because when I tried to use a spatula to remove them from the cookie sheet they fell apart…am I missing something? But they are delicious!

    • No, gluten free desserts are more delicate than those made with gluten. Gluten acts like a glue. Make them smaller, and let them cool before you remove them from the baking sheet. I am so glad you tried them! They are one of my favorites too!
