This year I am attending my friend’s annual Christmas cookie exchange. I try to take at least two different recipes so I have a variety to offer (we have to take 6 dozen total!). I usually take my go-to no bake dark chocolate truffles, but I’ve been on the hunt for a second easy recipe that everyone will love.
I found out that a few of my friends are on diets during the holidays (including me!), so I searched high and low for a cookie exchange-worthy recipe that won’t break the calorie bank or load us up on sugar.
I think I found the winner today….it’s a SUGAR-FREE SNICKERDOODLES recipe made with Splenda!
Easy Christmas Cookie Recipe – Sugar-Free Snickerdoodles
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. Something about them just reminds me of the holidays. The cinnamon scent wafting through the house….makes my mouth water just thinking about them!
These cookies turned out so well – they even have the tell-tale snickerdoodle crinkles!
Splenda® Holiday Sweet Swaps™
These snickerdoodles are made with both regular Splenda® (the white kind) and brown sugar Splenda. You can find both kinds at your local grocery store.
Using Splenda® No Calorie Sweeteners in place of sugar allows you to have some of your favorite treats without bombarding your system with sugar. Splenda® has the sweet taste of sugar with fewer calories so you can feel good about having a few treats around the holidays.

Calorie Savings from Swapping Out Splenda® for Sugar
Did know that by replacing three tablespoons of sugar per day with Splenda® No Calorie Sweetener, you can save almost 130 calories per day? That’s enough calorie savings to make a dent in your weight loss or weight management journey! Every little bit makes a difference, especially when you’re surrounded by a ton of tasty food around Christmas time.
I already have plans to give away a good portion of my cookie haul from this cookie exchange….I can’t afford all those calories and sugar content! 🙂
