Soft & Chewy Cinnamon Cookies


 cinnamon cookies  

I’ve been hunting for a super simple go-to cookie recipe for days and haven’t gotten too much luck, which I interpreted as a sign to experiment.

So I remembered my grandmas best sugar cookie recipe, which I have never attempted to recreate.

She’s definitely well known for these cookies, but unfortunately, they’re not the cleanest. It’s sad because they’re SO good, but they contain butter and sugar. I nearly caved and went for the butter, but I really wanted to pull through and decline to be content with what I know.  

My resolution: substitutes!

I simply replaced the butter with avocado & the sugar with coconut sugar! There’s so many alternatives for butter and sugar, but that’s just what I had on hand. 

The conversion for the butter:

1 c of butter = ½ c avocado

I didn’t even do a conversion for the sugar, so I used the amount that the original recipe called for.

I made half of them without a ton of cinnamon + sugar and half with a LOT. The ones with a LOT are really good and taste better than the plainer ones, in my opinion.
