Whole Wheat Coffee Snickerdoodles with Mocha Glaze

So, it’s been wayyyy too long since I shared a sweet treat on Miss Allie’s Kitchen. I offer you my deepest apologies. The lack of desserts has been because of a few things – the month of January I was doing a Whole30, so no sweets were consumed, and yes, I do personally taste and eat all of these recipes. Secondly, I eat all of these recipes, which means that if all I did was bake we would have a house full of treats and not too many meals to eat during the week, not to mention, a very unhappy grocery budget. But anyway, we’re back on the sweet tooth train and we’re coming in HOT.

Mocha Snickerdoodles

You know my sweet brother, Matt, that I absolutely adore? Well, he just had a birthday. His birthday just makes me warm and fuzzy inside which equates to me wanted to hug him all of the time and feed him all of the things because he has starving college student syndrome.  It just so happens that Snickerdoodles are his absolute favorite thing on the planet. I make them every year for his birthday!

Granulated sugar

All purpose flour

Whole wheat flour

Cream of tartar

Baking soda

Salt

Cinnamon

Coconut oil

Snickerdoodle Recipe with Iced Coffee

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Beat 1 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and butter together until it’s really light and fluffy – about 2 minutes with an electric mixer. Add coffee, vanilla, and eggs and mix until well until everything is incorporated. In a separate bowl add all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt and mix together lightly with a whisk or fork just to evenly distribute everything. Add this dry mixture into the wet mixture in three stages, scraping the bowl after each addition. Pro tip: always add dry mixture INTO wet mixture in 3 separate additions. It helps evenly incorporate everything.

In a small bowl combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie); roll balls in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place dough about 2 inches or so apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.

Mocha cookies with cinnamon

While the cookies cool, we’re going to make the glaze. Melt the coconut oil in a microwave-safe dish. Allow it to cool before adding powdered sugar, coffee concentrate, and cocoa powder. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies. You may need to pop them in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to set the glaze. Once glazed – devour!
