You know those recipes that make you feel like a kid again? Crinkle cookies are like that for me! Watching the cookies bake, making little cracks in the powdered sugar always feels a little magical.

These Ube Crinkle Cookies might be the most beautiful cookie ever. Not only do you get that magical crinkle, but they’re purple! When I realized my Ube Soft Serve protein was coming to life, this was one of the first recipes I wanted to use it with.

If you’ve ever made crinkle cookies before, you know they can be a little finicky. Taking out the crazy amounts of sugar and adding a protein powder seemed like it might be a challenge. But did I make it work?!

Take a look for yourself 😉

Tips for making crinkle cookies!

First of all, the ube extract is totally optional, but if you want these crinkle cookies to have that beautiful, deep purple hue and a stronger ube flavor, I think it’s worth getting!

Next, don’t skip the chill time! In fact, 10 minutes is the minimum (I have no patience for these steps so I kept it super minimal for you). But it’s very important for the most important part of this cookie – THE CRINKLE.

If the dough is too moist, it will just absorb the powdered sweetener while it bakes. Chilling helps to firm up the dough a bit to prevent this!

Speaking of dough, Ube Crinkle Cookie dough shouldn’t be dry, but it will be thick. Use a cookie scoop to measure out perfectly round, uniform cookies!

  • In a medium bowl, combine granulated sweetener, flaxseed, ube extract, avocado oil, and milk.
  • In a separate bowl, combine GF flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Gradually stir flour mixture into ube mixture, until just combined.
  • Chill dough for 10 minutes, while the oven preheats.
  • Heat the oven to 350℉. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to scoop cookie dough. Roll each cookie in powdered monk fruit sweetener and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Space cookies at least 1” apart.
  • Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, until cookies are just set and starting to crinkle. The cookies may not spread a lot while baking; use the back of a spoon to gently press them down a little as soon as they come out of the oven.

    Perfect ube crinkle cookies! Slight crisp on the outside, fudgy on the inside. I didn’t have ube extract, and I used oat flour. They were delicious! ♡︎

    Hi Cassey! I was just wondering how much avocado oil was required for this recipe, since it was in the instructions but not in the ingredients list. Can’t wait to try this! <3
