COOOKIES!!!!!  My Great Grandma used to make snickerdoodles back in the day.  I love them!  I needed a healthier version and was able to find a great recipe on the Running with Spoons blog to try.  I didn’t make very many changes to this gluten free snickerdoodles recipe at all.  It made a few more cookies than the original recipe said, my cooking time was quite a bit longer, and I needed a bit more cinnamon and coconut sugar (of course…LOL).

It still only comes out to about 120 calories per cookie and less than 20 from the yellow tier!

Servings : 14

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour blanched
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup Yellow Tier
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp coconut sugar Yellow Tier

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl or Kitchen Aid Mixer, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. I used the paddle with soft edges to stir the ingredients but a spoon or whisk will work fine to combine the dry ingredients.
  • Add melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and vanilla. Again, I used the mixer to stir until the dough is well combined and starts to thicken but it could be done by hand.
  • Add cinnamon and sugar to a small bowl.
  • Scoop out about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball.

  • Use the bottom of a cup or jar or mug (my weapon of choice) to flatten the cookies out.

  • Bake for 15 minutes or until they begin to stiffen slightly.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for ~5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
