Delicious Snicker doodles!

These snicker doodles are delicious and totally guilt free!

These snicker doodles are one bowl, easy to make and amazing! I started by combining all the ingredients in seperate bowls and decided to try something more simple! The decision was a good one and now I cant get away from these simply delicious, sweet cookies!

My dad said he wanted snickerdoodles and i started to image how i could make them healthy! I began thinking with sugars, flours and how to get them to rise! The tablespoon of flax seed isnt needed but does add protein and a little bit more rising! Almond flour is extremely healthy and there is not even a trace in this recipe! I dont like cookies that much but this one stole my heart! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

French Macarons

Jump to Recipe

These macarons were so fun to make! The best part is the several flavors and fillings. Jams to buttercreams and Gummy bear to cheeseburger! Macarons are a non stop! Although there are some cons. 

Macarons are really fun to make but the main struggle is the foot and shape. The foot is the little section of “bubble” looking section that is formed once the macarons rise in the oven. As for the shape, keeping it circular without a mold is nearly impossible on your first try. But as much as I like being creative I decided to use silicone macaron sheets that have the circle templates on the sheet so, the macarons are also easier to remove from the sheet once baked. The sheets can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Reusable-Silicone-Macaron-Quarter-Silicon/dp/B07JHXKHKB/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2SMF24E3U0PEI&dchild=1&keywords=macaron+sheet+silicone&qid=1584910931&sprefix=macaron+sheets+sili%2Caps%2C467&sr=8-4. These also come in different sizes which is a plus.

As for the batter, it may seem fine if you continuously mix it, just gently. But when gently folding the finished macaron batter, too much mixing can cause a flat macaron (no foot) which in that case, is just a cookie. I’ve stumbled upon that several times but I now finally understand my mistakes. 

Even though these are slightly complicated, these are totally worth it! Here is the delicious, perfect and fabulous recipe for Macarons!
