A homemade bar filled with cinnamon goodness – perfect for snickerdoodle lovers!

Snickerdoodle Bars from www.tasteandtellblog.com

Since baby #3 joined us, (which has already been 2 months – boy, how time does fly!!), menu planning has become even more important to me. I have to have a plan.

Adding to the craziness, we are a 1 car family right now. Which means the kids and I are home all day, unless we want to all venture out and take daddy to work. Most days, it’s just not worth it. But this means that there are no more “I just need one ingredient for this recipe” days. If I’m missing an ingredient, I either have to make do without or choose something else to make. So yes – planning is essential.

But what do you do when you are craving to make something sweet, but there wasn’t anything planned on the menu for the week? These are the times when it is good to have a recipe on hand that is made from pantry staples. Sure, you could always make regular old chocolate chip cookies, but how about something different this time?

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. So it’s only natural that I’d gravitate towards this recipe. All the goodness of snickerdoodles, but no rolling cookies. (I don’t know why I don’t make bars more often – they sure are easier!!) And not one crazy ingredient to be found in this recipe. I’m betting that the majority of you could go into your kitchen right now and be able to make these. Dangerous, yes – but it is a good thing for when those cinnamon cravings hit!!

A homemade bar filled with cinnamon goodness - perfect for snickerdoodle lovers!
Serves: 24 bars
  • 2⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon Filling
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients and beat on low until combined.
  4. Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread evenly. (Use your hands if needed to spread evenly.) Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the batter. Drop teaspoon sized amounts of the remaining batter over the cinnamon sugar layer.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Cool completely.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients. Drizzle over the bars.
  7. Cut and serve.

  1. These look AWESOME. Sometimes you just need to make bars instead of cookies! Slightly less effort involved. And the cinnamon/sugar combo is always a winner!!! I would love one of these for my breakfast right now!

  2. Im with you on that one..I have a 19 month old and four week old..”quick trips” to the store just aren’t part of my day anymore..nor are they worth it..(man it takes a long time to bundle them up and get out of the house!) These sound fabulous! Snickerdoodles are my favorite!

  3. Deb, these look dangerously good. Bars are so easy to make, I need to make them more too! Hope you’re well! xoxo

  4. I love these simple pantry recipes! Running to the store for a missing ingredient is never at the top of my list of things to do lol

  5. Since 3rd grade when I made my first snickerdoodle its been a fave. But in bar form? Whoa. Buy me a ticket and put me on that train. 2 months already? How did that happen?
