I will always argue that desserts taste better in bar form. Whether it’s brownies, blondies, or snickerdoodle bars, I just feel like everything bakes the best in an 8×8 pan! Desserts always taste better on Bachelor night as well. Baking on Bachelor night is one of my favorite ways to unwind. My fiance and I started watching The Bachelor together several seasons ago as a joke but then, like the rest of America, we got hooked. Now we look forward to Bachelor night every week and baking something sweet or making a cheeseboard while watching.
These snickerdoodle bars are super fluffy and moist. They also aren’t overly sweet- but they can also be made with additional sugar!
The greek yogurt in these bars acts as a 1:1 butter substitute, but it also helps activate the baking soda while in the oven, making the final product fluffy and light.
The all-purpose flour mixed with the nut flour is also a great way to make the final product fluffy and keep it from drying out. The healthy fats from the nut flour combined with the gluten from the all-purpose flour create a product that is not only spongy but holds together well.
This has definitely become one of my favorite baking go-to’s. It’s easy to put together and it turns out delicious every single time. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
- 1/3 cup brown sugar sub coconut sugar or turbinado sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 3 tbsp greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp monk fruit syrup sub maple syrup
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp almond milk sub any milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup cashew flour sub almond flour
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp cane sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Using a mixer, mix the sugar, butter, greek yogurt, maple syrup, egg, almond milk, and vanilla extract until well-combined.
- Add in the cashew flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Mix until thoroughly combined.
- Grease an 8x8 pan.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the cane sugar and cinnamon.
- Scoop out 1/4 of the batter at a time, sprinkling the bottom with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, setting it in the pan, and then sprinkling the top with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Do this until all of the batter is connected together in the pan, with cinnamon-sugar mixture on the bottom and the top of the batter.
- Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter and then bake for 22-23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Be careful not to over-bake!
- Let cool for about 15 minutes and then slice and enjoy!
