These are so delicious and easy to make! On Life As Mom on Friday she suggested "TGIF: Bake Someone Happy!" by making a batch of these Whole Wheat Snicker Doodles and I'm so glad we did! Find her recipe here and I've copied it below.
A healthier twist on an old classic, these are delicious. And kids love to help roll them in the cinnamon sugar.

1 1/2 cups sucanat or brown sugar
