Apple Snickerdoodles by Danielle of BunnyBites

Before diving into this recipe, the creator Danielle of BunnyBites Blog told us a little story about it that we wanted to share:

Funny story about this recipe, I once brought these to a going-away party for my friend McKenzie (she was joining the Air Force) and her family literally wouldn’t let me leave until I wrote this recipe down for them. Her uncle literally blocked the door — they were especially shocked when I told them they were vegan! That night, I started my website and this was the first recipe I posted.

Apple Snickerdoodles

  • Servings: 18-20 cookies!
  • Print



  • 1 box of vegan yellow or vanilla cake mix
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce (or 1 snack cup of applesauce)
  • 1/2 cup of neutral oil* (This includes canola, vegetable, or sunflower. I prefer sunflower)
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Topping: 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon 1 tablespoon of sugar 


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix powdered cake mix, neutral oil, and applesauce in a large bowl until well-combined, without any lumps of flour.
  3. Using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop, scoop balls of cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about two inches apart from one another.
  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  5. Meanwhile, mix cinnamon and sugar to create a topping in a small bowl.
  6. Once out of the oven, sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar topping over the still-hot cookies.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving!
