Snickerdoodle Bread - so delicious and easy (no yeast involved)! It's filled with cinnamon chips and topped with cinnamon and sugar!

I about died when my mom tried out this new recipe for Snickerdoodle Bread. She found the recipe from Barbara Bakes and made a few modifications. It was a huge hit and since then we’ve made it at least two dozen times (yes, we love it that much!!)

If you like bread and you like Snickerdoodles, you will definitely LOVE this recipe! I love that it doesn’t involve yeast. I’m not a yeast expert so it still scares me a bit, which means I love this recipe even more. The bad part? Cinnamon chips are usually onlyΒ seasonal and can be found at most grocery stores during the holidays. Although few stores carry them the rest of the year, you can always order them online at the Hershey’s Store. I have seen them at Walmart through out the year but I have readers who couldn’t find them. Having said that, be sure to stock up when you do see them so you can make this bread whenever you like.

As I mentioned, this bread is quite addicting. If you are a fan of cinnamon and sugar (or know someone that is), then you gotta try this. I highly recommend it and have yet to meet someone who didn’t like this recipe. πŸ˜‰

Barbara @ Barbara Bakes

Your bread looks fabulous! So glad it was a huge hit. We love it too. Thanks for linking to my original recipe.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for coming up with such a great recipe. It was seriously so delicious! Have a great week! XO

Lolly Jane

What happened to your resolutions?? Haha jk!! This looks FAB!!!

    Lil' Luna

    LOL! I only had a tiny piece. πŸ˜‰


Looks delicious Kristyn! I’ve made Snickerdoodle Blondies that look similar, so I’ll have to give this a try. Totally pinning it! πŸ™‚


Where would one find Cinnamon chips? I live in Santa Cruz Ca and cannot find them anywhere that I have looked. I have found several recipes lately that I really want to try that need these and I am becoming desperate πŸ™‚ Help!

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Julie! Sorry you haven’t been able to find these. They should be in the baking aisle of your local grocery store, but it sounds like you’ve checked there. Have you also checked Walmart?


    I think they’re a seasonal thing, so if you can’t find them at the store, you can order them online from Nifty Nut House. I just cleaned them out of 9 pounds of chips this afternoon. πŸ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      So good to know. Thank you, Amanda!! Will stock up on them next time I see them. πŸ™‚

    Bo Mayo

    You can also find them here ——

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you so much for the tip!! Glad they have them online too for everyone to get.


        This bread looks great! Also, I buy my cinnamon chips from the awesome Prepared Pantry online when they’re 50% off. They’re DELICIOUS. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the recipe!!!


          Also, they’re not “seasonal” at prepared pantry, btw…I’ve purchased them throughout the year there.:)

          Lil' Luna

          Good to know! Thanks, Danielle. Do they have a certain time they always put them on sale for 50% off?


          They go on sale fairly often from what I’ve seen. I saw them on sale 2xs since Christmas I believe. Right now the 11 oz bag is 3.99, however, there’s shipping to calculate. I just am sure to purchase when there are other things I want that are also on sale so my shipping “worth it.” πŸ™‚


    I was able to find the cinnamon chips at Meier. They stock them year-round. Good luck!

Dezi A

Oooo…. I love Snickerdoodles! I once tried a recipe I found for Snickerdoodle muffins and they were a big flop. I’m super excited to try this. Thanks!!

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know if you try it out. It is seriously so DELISH! πŸ™‚

Ann @ Suburban Prairie Homemaker

This looks amazing! I bet it would make a great muffin recipe, too! I am going to try to make them gluten free for us. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe!

rebecca @ beurrista

This sounds like an amazing bread to bake. I’ve never tried cinnamon chips before. Do you like them?
Saw you at Saturday Seven Party.

    Lil' Luna

    Cinnamon chips are amazing!! Just finding out though that they are seasonal items at some stores. Although, they are seasonal you can find them at several online shops. πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. My mouth is watering!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re welcome! I hope you like it. Have a great week! XO


Have you made it in a full size loaf pan? If so, how much longer would you cook it for?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t made it in a full size loaf pan, but on Barbara Bakes, where I got the recipe she has a note that says:
    Note: You can also make this in two 9Γ—5 loaf pans. Bake at 350ΒΊ for 60 to 70 minutes until a toothpick inserted into a crack in the center of the loaf comes clean.
    Here’s the link in case:


      I have my ingredients all lined up and ready to bake!!! I was interested in making this recipe in a full sized loaf pan, too. I noticed in the link you posted to the original recipe (@ she used more baking powder, vanilla and sour cream. I’m curious, did you find the quanties you listed (less of each) to work better or change the texture?

[email protected] in a Row

Sounds delicious – I think I”ll be making this TODAY!!

    Lil' Luna

    You must! It is so good. I would be making this too if I had cinnamon chips on hand!!

H. Rae

Oh, goodness! This looks amazing! My mouth is watering! I host a Monday link party and would love for you to join me with this yummy recipe at

Wishing you a wonderful Monday!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you! Will try to remember to link up next week. Have a great day!

Heather @ House of Woyaks

YUM! I am SO making this!! Thanks for sharing!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you, Heather. Let me know if you try it out. Seriously – it’s DELISH!!

This sounds wonderful, yum!

    Lil' Luna

    Sounds wonderful and tastes wonderful too!!! πŸ™‚


Wow – that’s looks so good…two slices and a glass if milk, please!

I’m a New follower! Saw your Feature at Creations by Kara!

Love your site!

Cheers ~ Mary

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the kind words, Mary, and for stopping by. I hope you can come back again! Have a great day! XO


We have been making this for years. Only we call it sour cream coffee cake and make it in an angel food cake pan.
We don’t add the cinnamon chips, instead we put half the batter in the pan, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top and
then the rest of the batter. I will have to try the cinnamon chips. I do have one question, why did you make the changes to the
recipe? I’m just curious.

    Lil' Luna

    You’ll have to send the recipe – sounds great!! I always make a few changes to recipes, just depending on what I like or what I think is good. For example, I don’t like a ton of sour cream so I decreased that but added more Cinnamon and Sugar cuz that’s my fav. πŸ™‚

Lolly Jane

Mmmmmm!!!!! Featuring this at tonights par-tay, Kristyn!
PS: Do you ship to Yuma? Pretty sure I’d love some freshly baked snickerdoodle bread πŸ˜‰ jk!

    Lil' Luna

    Thx, chica!! And maybe one of these days I’ll send you a loaf. Or better yet, you can just move back and I’ll bring you a loaf every month!! πŸ˜‰


I just made this today, AMAZING! I could probably eat them all πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! So glad you made it and loved it!!! πŸ˜€


I wanted to make this tonight and forgot I don’t have bread pans. Would this work as muffins? Also could I skip the cinnamon chips?


Hi Kristyn,

Thank you SO much for sharing this recipe! I made these today as soon as I saw the recipe on Pinterest (I’m just a little obsessed with that site, hehe) and they were Delicious! I am posting them on my blog tonight and will definitely give you the credit for such a wonderful recipe. I can’t wait to try more recipes.
Thanks again,

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! So glad you were able to make it, and that you loved it!! Send me the link so I can check it out. Have a great day! XO


Is there a substitute for cinnamon chips? Can’t find them, anything else to add in?

    Lil' Luna

    Not that I know of. :/ I know several readers have said they have found the chips online.


Hey Lil’ Luna –
I found your recipe on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try it. I seriously love snickerdoodle cookies, so I was excited to try the bread. It came out fine following your instructions. I couldn’t find the cinnamon chips either, so I bought Heath Bar toffee chips instead, and it came out great. The chocolate flavor is a nice addition, and the toffee is a complimentary flavor to the cinnamon sugar. Just a thought for your fans who can’t find the cinnamon chips.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the suggestion, Bonnie. I know the cinnamon chips can be seasonal (you can find them online year long but I know people usually don’t want to have to wait for them). Toffee would be a great substitute – will have to try it out! Thanks again, and have a great day! πŸ™‚

Sounds SUPER yummy!

This recipe is so delicious it’s dangerous. Really yummy. It would be great as a gift too. Sweet and special.

    Lil' Luna

    Yes it is!! I should come up with a printable to attach to it if you wrap it up and give it as a gift. πŸ™‚


I’m really looking forward to making this recipe, yet when I was at the store today gathering the ingredients I didn’t find cinnamon chips. I asked the manager if they sold them…thinking and hoping I had overlooked them. He checked on it and said it was a seasonal product. This being almost March, he said they are in stock starting in October. What do you suggest in place of the cinnamon chips? Thanks so much!

Paula Ramsay

Oh my goodness! I am a snickerdoodle fanatic….AND a cinnamon chip fanatic! And when I saw THIS recipe….I thought I might have died and gone to heaven….but no, that didn’t happen – until I ate it! So good! I couldn’t even wait for it to cool! I burned the roof of my mouth! haha! My hubby already things I hoard cinnamon chips….I hate to let my pantry get below a dozen bags….so he’s going to think I’m nuts when I buy even more so I can make this bread all.the.time! Fabulous recipe! Thank you…thank you…thank you!!!


Cinnamon chips are also not common in Calgary, AB. Can you suggest a substitution for them?


    Lil' Luna

    You can find them online, or I have had other readers who have used toffee chips instead. πŸ™‚

Hilani - Handmade by Hilani

This looks awesome! I can’t wait to try and make it!


Can you double this recipe and bake it in regular size loaf pans? It sounds so good! Snicker doodles are my favorite cookies. This sounds like a great alternative.


This looks AMAZING…and I can’t wait to checkout the GF version. Thanks so much!!
Niki recently posted..Guilt Free (& Gluten Free) PancakesMy Profile


Printed this and can’t wait to get ingredients for it tomorrow.


Hello, this looks delicious!! I was just wondering where you got the cinnamon chips from? I went to HEB (grocery store in Texas) and could not find them. Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    We got them at the local store but they are only a seasonal item. Hershey’s and other companies sell them online though. πŸ™‚


i cannot wait to try this!! thank you for posting:)


Very yummy. It took longer than an hour to cook though maybe I did something wrong?

    Lil' Luna

    Hmmmm, not sure. Every oven is different. We did this at my mom’s and I know her oven seems hotter than mine. How much longer did you have to cook it for?

ND LeeAnn

It looks great, but I don’t have mini loaf pans., only the regular-sized ones. If I use those, could I get two loaves and how long should I bake them? Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    If you look on the website that I got the recipe from she tells you how long to bake for regular pans. The website is called Barbara Bakes. πŸ™‚


Oh. My. Mouth! I’m drooling. Can NOT wait to make this. Now if only I could track down those cinnamon chips. I’ve never heard of them. Did you find them at a regular grocery store?

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Dawn! Thank you so much. Unfortunately, the chips are a seasonal item and can only be found during the holidays (Thanksgiving & Christmas). There are several places to get them online but I would recommend getting them at the πŸ™‚


This is my husband’s favorite bread! He told me I MUST make this once a week! However, I don’t know if our waistlines would benefit from that. This bread is truely amazing! The last time I made it, I substituted honey vanilla greek yogurt for the sour cream because that was all I had on hand. I reduced the sugar since the greek yogurt was flavored. I couldn’t tell the difference, still delicious! Thank you!

    Lil' Luna

    What a great tip to use yogurt instead of sour cream. If you’re making it once a week that may help the waistlines – lol! SO glad you like it. I’m out of cinnamon chips and need to order some to have on hand so I can make it all the time, it’s so good! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day! XO


Hi! Cant wait to try these but the 3T of sugar and 3T of cinnamon is that tablespoons or teaspoons??

    Lil' Luna

    Big T is tablespoons, small t is for teaspoons. πŸ™‚ Let me know if you give it a try. πŸ™‚


I couldn’t find cinnamon chips, so I substituted white chocolate chips. It turned out FANTASTIC!

    Lil' Luna

    Oooooh, sounds delish!! Will need to try that out. Thanks! So glad you liked it. Happy Easter. πŸ™‚


      I have never made snickerdoodles personally, although I have tried store bought ones in the past. I want to make this bread for my family (and me!) and I had a question. I see this calls for 4 “mini loaf pans” and I was just wondering if you knew the exact size. As of now, I have a loaf pans that I have used for meatloaf, but I am not sure if this is a regular size? Thanks in advance for you help!


        Nvm, I found some one-time-use mini loaf pans at the store! Now I can rock this recipe! πŸ˜€

          Lil' Luna

          Sorry about that. Didn’t see your first comment in time to reply. Did you try it? If so, how was it? Would die for a slice right now. πŸ˜€


          No problem. The times didn’t show up exactly right anyways. I did try it, and it’s amazing! My mini loaf pans must have been smaller, so I made 5, and I had to cook them maybe 5 minutes longer, but sooo worth it! My family liked it, and I’m taking the rest to work tonight (so I don’t eat all of it!) Also, I saw the cinnamon chips were commented on a lot. I found mine at Hy-Vee, just in case anyone else asks about them.

          Lil' Luna

          Thanks Michel! SO glad you liked the bread. And I’ve never heard of Hy-Vee is that a local store by you?

Jolene Smith

Where would I find “Cinnamon chips”? I’ve looked in my local grocery stores but haven’t seen anything like it. Any suggestions?
Jolene Smith recently posted..Back on the Fourth of July….My Profile

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Jolene!! Unfortunately, the cinnamon chips are only seasonal items. BOO, I know!! You can find them at several online shops though including Hope that helps. πŸ™‚


how much flour? not in your recipe. thanks

Shauna VW

Is it just me being blind, or is there no flour in the ingredient list? How much flour does it take? Or am I totally missing it somewhere – which wouldn’t surprise me, but I have looked a few times,,,,,

    Lil' Luna

    A few others didn’t see it either although I could see it on my side. Weird! Any who, it’s 2 1/2 cups flour πŸ™‚


How much flour? I don’t see it on the ingredient list.

    Lil' Luna

    It’s 2 1/2 cups flour πŸ™‚

Melissa gentry

I made these just Monday into muffins with the toffee chips and they are heavenly. They made 24 muffins and I cooked them for 20 minutes. I have to make more as I only have 4 muffins left and I am going to try butterscotch chips in these as I could not find the toffee at my local grocer.

    Lil' Luna

    Ooooh, good to know! I hope others can see this and know they can do it as a muffin form. Thank you for all the info!! πŸ˜€

June g.

I’m in the middle of making this. Where is the flour? And in your ingredients you list 3TB of cinnamon but in the directions you show 3t. of cinnamon to mix with the sugar. is it tablespoons or teaspoons?

    Lil' Luna

    So sorry about that! Just edited the recipe this morning and apparently it was too early – I messed it up. It’s 3 TB sugar and 3 tsp. cinnamon. πŸ™‚


I’ve been able to find the cinnamon chips at Meijer year round.

    Lil' Luna

    Is that a local store near you?


I just made these couldn’t get the cinnamon chip so I used butterscotch ones! It was amazing! I also made them into muffins. Tip I learned after the first batch use cupcake liners. They are not easy to get out of a well greased pan! Bake for 25 minutes. Perect portion control and great for teacher gifts. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!

    Lil' Luna

    Great to know!! There were so many tips from readers that I may have to go back and add all those tips to this post. Thanks!! πŸ˜€


I don’t have mini loaf pans, could I use two regular sized ones?

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, you can. You will have to bake them for about 60-70 minutes. πŸ™‚


Wegmans sells the cinnamon chips year round!


@ Lil Luna – I didn’t see your comment until now, and yes, I actually forgot until you said something, but Hy-Vee is in Missouri and I think Iowa, and maybe Kansas.

    Lil' Luna

    No worries!! Good to know! Thanks, Michel! πŸ˜€


JUST finished making this! SO sooo good! I didn’t add any chips, but it still tastes amazing! Also, I hate sour cream and so I put in a 1/2 c of 2% milk instead because milk is thinner than sour cream. I also added about an 1/8 c of whipping cream just because. It still turned out perf – nice and moist on the inside and “crunchy” outside. Oh, I also didn’t put any sugar/cinnamon mix on the top. Yummm! THANKS!!


This looks and sounds delicious!! I will give it a try without the cinnamon (or toffee) chips as my daughter is allergic to the soy in them.
Sonia recently posted..Always A Freak Show With Four KidsMy Profile

Lisa Benedict

This looks delicious! Can I sub something for the sour cream?


I made this today! It was so incrediblyYUMMY. I did bake it in a reg loaf pan, because that’s all I had. However it was perfect. I also added a little cream of tartar, only because real Snickerdoodles have it. Thank You so much for sharing this recipe. My family really enjoyed it.


I make this in a 9×13 cake pan without the cinnamon chips and my family loves it. πŸ™‚ My family calls it snickerdoodle cake and ask for it all the time. Thanks for the recipe.


This is the GREATEST!!! My husband and I both LOVE it!!! You are right about the cinnamon chips, I looked every where and couldn’t find them but then I went into Harmons and there they were. Harmons has lots of things other stores don’t carry year round. YAY!!!


Love this, my hubby loves snicker doodles its his favorite cookie and loves this bread, I made one large loaf and had enough batter left and make six muffins. I am now making it for the second time in 4 days. LOL he ate almost the whole loaf himself.

    Lil' Luna

    LOL! I Love it. This recipe is seriously so good and a family fav. Glad to hear that your hubby enjoyed it as well! πŸ˜€

Savi Shaw

My friend and I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it – it was AMAZING! We didn’t follow exact directions and we made one big loaf in a big bread pan and it took FOREVER to bake, haha! It was still delicious, but I would absolutely make it again with the three smaller bread pans as suggested in the recipe πŸ™‚

Thank you for this delicious recipe!


This bread was a HUGE hit with everyone!!! I have already made it twice and am now making it a third time! So moist with tons of flavor! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!!


What a wonderful idea! I love snickerdoodles and these loaves look amazing! I absolutely have to try this recipe. Also, a loaf would make a wonderful holiday gift.

Nicky @ Pink Recipe Box

This sounds fantastic and would make an ideal Christmas gift! Pinning πŸ™‚

Emily K.

Thanks for sharing! I have some in the oven right now and am excited to give them a try! I found the chips this summer at Hershey Park πŸ™‚


I get my cinnamon chips from King Arthur Flour/Bakers Catalog. They are 100 times better than Hershey’s.

    Linda Scott

    Have you tried the Vietnamese cinnamon from there? It’s awesome!


I have posted a comment here before but I just have to say, every single time I make these, people go completely crazy for them. They are insanely delicious! And they never fail. I blogged them too.

    Lil' Luna

    SO, SO glad!! It’s seriously so good, huh?! Glad you guys like the recipe. πŸ™‚


I don’t have the cinnamon chips, is it possible just to leave them out or will it completely alter the taste of the bread? Thanks! πŸ™‚


I don’t know if someone’s already mentioned this, but I searched for a recipe for homemade cinnamon chips and found this
It was really easy, and probably cheaper than buying them.


maybe this is a silly question, but I have to ask anyway.. i wanna make these today, want to do in mini loaf/bread pans (4) so do I have to bake each of them separte OR do I put them all in together for time suggested above.?

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Taryan! Not a silly question at all… I would put them all in together, but that’s just me. Did you try it?


I’ve never ever seen cinnamon chips. Now, I feel like I need to get out and look for them, haha. This snickerdoodle loaf looks so good, you’ve inspirred me to make them asap. That is, as soon as I can find some cinnamon chips, which is the only ingredient I’m missing right now! I love the cookie version but I imagine I will love this bread version just as much, if not more.
zeezee recently posted..Best sites to download royalty free music ?My Profile


OMG! So scrumptious! Found the chips this week at WalMart for about $2 a bag. Going back as you suggested to freeze for later! Thanks for the best recipe ever! Can;t wait to make it all through the holidays!

Mary Jane

I made this x 2 and both times it fell flat, the second tme it fell apart, what am I doing wrong? The second batch tastes great.


Can you freeze them? I was thinking it would be great as Christmas gifts but would like to start early.

This bread is so delicious! I’ve tried it a couple times. Dumb question… but do you have a trick to getting them out of the pans? I make tons of different mini loaves of bread, and they come out easy, but both times, these have broken in half. Thanks!


This bread looks wonderful….. will definitely have to make this….


I will be making these for the teacher’s and neighbor’s Christmas gifts this year!! Thanks <3

I made muffins because I only have one loaf pan. This is just a test run for a Thanksgiving party, so I’ll let you know what all the taste testers say.


    Everyone loved them!

This bread is amazingly good. Wanted to say that I accidentally doubled the amount of cinnamon when I was making this and it turned out great for a cinnamon lover like me. I am having the same of it falling apart – suggestions?


I have been holding on to this recipe for a LONG time waiting for my local stores to sell cinnamon chips. FINALLY they have them!! So excited to try this for Thanksgiving morning :).

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! Let me know what you think of it and if you like it be sure to stock up on those cinnamon chips and freeze them so you have them for later!! πŸ˜€


      I am planning on switching from Christmas cookies to breads this year-and Snickerdoodles are my favorite! Stoked to try the bread, but can I freeze it? I hope so!!


        Also discovered my bulk food store carries the cinnamon chips,,,,


I was curious abou the same thing as a few other commenters! My mom made this bread for Thanksgiving and it was DIVINE! However, it didn’t rise a lot. I wondered if the 1 tsp baking powder vs. 2 tsp on Barbara Bakes makes any difference. Is there a reason you halved it?


I finally found cinnamon chips and got so excited to make this! that I forgot to put them in. It’s still good without them, or with them melted on top πŸ˜‰

I made the snicker doodle bread and it was so good! Question: how many days will this be good for? I’m sure it will be gone in the next 3-4 days but is that too late? I’m pregnant so I would rather be safe than sorry…


Hi! I made this tonight and while it was so delicious, when i went to take it out of the pan it crumbled into a million pieces! (Don’t worry, I told the hubs it was “snickerdoodle cobbler” and served it with ice cream ;)) I halved the recipe and put it into one loaf pan, idk if that would make a difference. I also added 15 minutes to the cooking time because it wasn’t done all the way at the hour mark. Any ideas?? I’d like to make it again!


Love snickerdoodles so had to pin this and try it. I ended up with 5 mini loaves that baked for 38 minutes, could have been in even longer. Bread is tasty and moist. Thanks for sharing your creation!


Can I make this a week or so ahead of Christmas and freeze the loafs then bring them out and thaw?


I have tried this reciepe two times now and it’s been taking an hour to fully bake in the oven. I must being doing something wrong…


    Made 18 mini loaves to give as gifts and a few to searve on Christmas day….A HUGE hit, to say the least! Everyone has been asking for the recipe. I need to go buy more cinnamon chips before they disappear from our HEB’s shelves. HEB was the only place that I could find them.

      Lil' Luna

      LOVE to hear that!!! It is seriously such an easy and DELICIOUS bread recipe. So glad they were popular and everyone loved them. Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment – made my day!! XO


This was fantastic! I didn’t have mini loaf pans, so I used two big ones and cooked for 50 minutes instead. One of them I made cinnamon and butterscotch chip. Both ways was really good. A true keeper.

    Lil' Luna

    So glad it turned out well. I still haven’t tried the butterscotch chips so will have to do that soon. Have a great day! πŸ˜€


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bread. As a huge lover of the cookies, I knew that I would enjoy this however I didn’t expect to like it this much. Made it over the holidays and went back to the grocery store to stock up on the chips since I know that I’ll be making a whole lot more of it. Thanks so much for sharing this :).


I made this a couple weeks ago and it was a big hit at home and work! I made two regular size loafs. I have two in the oven as I type. Thanks for the delicious recipe !! So easy too!

    Lil' Luna

    LOVE that the recipe was a huge hit!! Wish I had some in the oven right now… πŸ˜‰

The Kitchen Kook

I just made them and I LOVE them πŸ™‚ I made them into muffins, which was perfect because these treats are a little rich and decadent (in the best way possible and not overwhelming at all!) which made them perfect for little bites. And I just love how soft and plush these were. So good!

I made the snickerdoodle bread for Christmas for family and co workers. I found these cute mini ceramic bread pans at the Christmas tree store for $1.00 and baked the bread in them. They were an awesome hit and I got all kinds of compliments on the bread. I told everyone I got it from you and I will definately be baking it again!

    Lil' Luna

    Hi LyRae! Thanks for the sweet comment. So glad these were a hit and that everyone loved it! It really is a simple and yummy bread, and I hope you can make it many more times! πŸ˜€

I really want to know why you named this blog post, β€œSnickerdoodle Bread”.
Anyway I really admired it!Thanks for the post,Lasonya recently posted.. Profile

Hi, I made this bread Saturday for my Sunday School class and I had some problems. I followed the recipe exactly but I needed 5 mini bread pans instead of 4. I bought the fail mini pans… there a different mini size because your’s look longer and flatter than mine? Also, the cinnamon to sugar ratio for the topping is was way to cinnamony. I cut the cinnamon in 1/2 and it still seemed a lot. It was way darker than your bread shows, just wondering if that was posted wrong. The bread was a little spongy and not very moist. It tasted pretty good but not what I expected. Any suggestions? Maybe if I had the wrong bread pans it had to bake too long because it was thicker? I sure love the concept, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Sandy Handrich

    Update……I found the exact same recipe posted on pinterst by someone else, the only difference is 1 tsp. of baking powder instead of the 2 tsps. that you have posted. Is it possible you typed in a 2 instead of a 1? That seems like it might be the reason for the spongy texture. Just wondering

Snickerdoodle Blondies are probably my favorite thing to bake…and eat. These loaves look amazing!

Boy made these today found cinomen chips at albertsons this is to die for love it won’t last long in my house


I had no trouble finding the cinnamon chips at ShopRite in northern NJ. I’m about to make this now! Thanks for sharing.

    Lil' Luna

    Just curious if you were able to make the bread and how it turned out…. πŸ™‚

Amazing effectiveness concerning doing this web-site. I really loved searching it again, and therefore may well return continually, seeking everything completely new.

Heather Howell

Found the cinnamon chips at Walmart this morning! Made the bread tonight and it was a huge hit in my house! Love it! πŸ™‚


I just wanted to share that my family loves this recipe. We do modify it though. I make it in a 9×13 cake pan and it is awesome. I also have never worried about adding any chips of any kind and we love it just the way it is. Great recipe!


Just found this on Pinterest. Lucky to live in Hershey where I can get cinnamon chips all year! Looking forward to trying this tonight.

    Lil' Luna

    So jealous you live in Hershey!! Let me know how it goes. πŸ™‚

Yum, this looks like my kind of bread. It looks delicious! Saving.

    Trust me – it IS delicious!! Let me know if you ever try it out. πŸ™‚


Hi! I came across your recipe from Pinterest! I LOVE Snickerdoodle anything and am excited to try some of these delicious recipes! If you are ever looking for cinnamon chips and they are not available; there is a store in Idaho called the Prepared Pantry that sells them in up to a 50 pound bag. I order online from them all the time, the cinnamon chips are a huge hit at our house, we use them in everything. Just thought I would share!

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the tip, Katy!! I think we could go through a 50 lb bag of cinnamon chips quite easily. πŸ˜€


LOVE this recipe so much! Just wanted to put in my 2 cents though and say that I have made this both with the Hershey’s cinnamon chips and the mini cinnamon chips that you can get bagged at specialty type stores like Kitchen Kneads or Allison’s pantry or online and I have to say that the mini cinnamon chips win, hands down. Much as I love Hershey’s – I may just go have myself some special dark in a minute- the mini chips blend into the bread better and don’t have the slightly bitter taste that the hershey’s ones do. I also double the amount of cinnamon for the bread (not the topping).
Anyway, thanks for the great recipe!

    Lil' Luna

    Ooooh, thanks for the tip! I’m so glad you like the recipe. It’s definitely a family favorite too. Thank you for stopping by. πŸ™‚


Making these right now!!! Look so good… The batter was yummy too!! Thanks for recipe!:)

    Lil' Luna

    You’re welcome!! Can’t wait to hear what you think about it… wishing I had a slice right now!!


What size are the mini loaf pans? We went shopping and just picked up the cinnamon chips just because. I will have to use them for this. Thanks

    Lil' Luna

    The ones I used were: 5 3/4 x 3 inch


Made these today, really good. Used 4 5″x3″ mini pans and should have known better than to use up all the batter in those pans. I filled it more than 2/3 full and it ran over. Next time when I make the minis I will make 5. Thanks for the great recipe:)

    Lil' Luna

    You’re welcome Michelle!! So glad you liked it! XO


I’m in the UK and cannot get cinnamon chips- is there anything else I could use?

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Joy! I’ve had others say they have used butterscotch and white chocolate chips and they worked just as well. Do you have those in the UK? Hope that helps!


This was absolutely delicious! I couldn’t find cinnamon chips so I replaced them with Nestle butterscotch chips and it worked out really well!

    Lil' Luna

    SO glad you liked it Katie. I’ve had others say they used the butterscotch chips too, so I’m glad it worked out. In some areas Cinnamon Chips are seasonal so if you see them around the upcoming holidays, be sure to stock up! πŸ˜€


For anyone who can’t find cinnamon chips, check Wal-mart. That’s the only grocery store I’ve been able to find them in Northwest Ohio.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the tip, Megan. I’m making this bread today – SOOO yummy. πŸ™‚


Looks great! How many loaves will this recipe typically make?


Is this recipe still available? It just says ingredients and instructions but doesn’t show them. Am I missing something?

    Lil' Luna

    Not sure what happened, but it was missing for awhile. Should be back now. πŸ™‚


Do you know if this recipe would work as a gift in a mason jar? As a mix?

Thanks for posting this recipe! I used it but added white choc chips instead of cinnamon chips. It was amazing! I gave it to my neighbor’s for Christmas. I am posting it on my blog tomorrow {and of course linked back to you!}.

Merry Christmas!

    Lil' Luna

    I think White Chocolate Chips would be amazing… will have to try that next time I make it. πŸ™‚


Why 4 mini loaves instead of the original 5 didn’t make sense. 5 was perfect as was the recipe.

    Lil' Luna

    The last time I made this I actually got 6 out of it. I think it just depends on which “mini” loaves you use. Either way, the bread is always delicious!


Love snicker doodles so couldn’t wait for this recipe!!! I did 4 mini loaves and they were still raw after 35 min. I ended up coking them an hour. So not sure what happened there. Walmart sells the cinnamon chips year round too.


Walmart seems to carry the cinnamon chips year round.

    Lil' Luna

    YES!! But I always stock up just in case. Can’t be without my cinnamon chips in case I’m craving this bread. πŸ˜‰

RN Mommy

Do you know how they would taste if I substituted 1 stick of butter for a 1/2 of a cup of applesauce?

    Lil' Luna

    To be honest, I’m not sure but it’s worth a try. Let me know if you do try it so I can let others know how it goes. πŸ˜‰


Is there any way to make just one loaf instead of the 4 mini loaves? I only have one loaf pan…..

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, it can be made in 2 large loaf pans. Bake at 350 for about 60-70 minutes. πŸ™‚


I made the bread and it was very good but I felt it was missing something and then it dawned on me there is no cream of tarter in there to give it that “zip” like the cookies. Do you know how I could add it to the recipe?


Can you freeze your lemon glazed zuchinni bread? How about some of your other breads. I bake goodies for many of my committees but many times I need to bake them ahead, so I am always looking for recipes I can freeze for a week.

    Lil' Luna

    I think you should be able to freeze all of these breads. I just suggest if they have a glaze to add that right before. πŸ˜‰

Kathy Murray

Your recipes ALL look great and I can’t wait to try them!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you, Kathy! Let me know if you try this bread – it’s our FAVORITE!!


This looks amazing. I am on a weight loss diet and allow myself one super indulgent evening a week. I think this will be on the desert menu of my super indulgent weight loss break πŸ˜‰

Do you think this bread could be frozen after being baked? I’m not sure how the crumb topping would turn out. Thoughts? Thanks!

I’ve made this recipe twice and really like it.. except my cooking times are way off. The first time I made a large loaf and so it took longer but even when I made it with the smaller pans it still took almost twice as long to cook all the way through. Has anyone had problems with this?

mary reichert

I made the bread it fell in center hard to get out pan i sprayed the pans did i need to was flour amounts correct? please let me know

    Lil' Luna

    Warm bread is my favorite!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!


Lordy, what did I do wrong? Batter was the consistency of thick mud, didn’t get a clean toothpick test until 48 minutes (and, yes, my oven is dead on for temp). Tops sunk and the whole thing is quite heavy. Looks nothing like you lovely pictures. Help, oh help!

    Lil' Luna

    I’m really not sure. I know, the bread is not rounded on top, so it may sink a little or stay flat on top. Were all the ingredients fresh? I’m trying to think what could have caused that. I’m sorry it did, though!


I just put these in the oven and I am VERY EXCITED about them!! I did the 2 large loaf pans because I’m planning on bringing one to the shore with us this weekend. Do you recommend to freeze the one or will it be okay in the fridge for the next few days??

    Lil' Luna

    Perfect!! Yes, it should be ok in the fridge or even in a plastic bag on the counter. I hope you liked it!

frieda mirelez

I have made this recipe twice and each time it falls flat!! What am I doing wrong? I live @ altitude over 5000 feet. Should I add more flour? The taste is awesome, love it, just wish it would rise for me. Appreciate any suggestions.

    Kristyn Merkley

    Oh, how I wish I knew how to cook in higher altitude. All is know, is that usually you cook longer or may need to turn the heat up. Have you tried googling what to do? I’m sorry, I wish I knew!

      frieda mirelez

      Thanks anyway. I will google and then try one more time. I will let you know what I learn.


Always have chips on hand….Make your own cinnamon chips, very easy and only takes a few ingredients . Recipe on pintrest or google it!


I’ve made this bread a lot but for some reason recently the middle caves in after it cools
