If you've got a sweet tooth, chances are you've gotten bit by the holiday baking bug by now. But before you break out pounds of butter and sugar for a weekend afternoon of baking, we've got a healthier cookie recipe you should try. (More: Satisfy Every Craving for Under 100 Calories)

These maple snickerdoodles are a lighter version of the classic snickerdoodle cookie, featuring whole-wheat flour, almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla Greek yogurt instead of butter or cream. The yogurt adds just a hint of tanginess, and the acidity from it works with the baking soda to make the cookies rise. The result? Pillowy cookies at less than 100 calories a pop.
