Snickerdoodle Bars

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!
