Paleo Snickerdoodles

I love making cookies, but I LOVE making healthy cookies! Seriously, it’s so awesome to be able to make treats that are just as healthy as our snacks and meals. My girls and hubby love it, too, cause that means they get them a lot more often! These cookies are packed with protein from almonds and antioxidants from the cinnamon. Super yummy and one of our favorite cookies!


Paleo Snickerdoodles | a kitchen cafe



Prep: 10 minutes

Bake time: 7-9 minutes

Servings: approx 15


2 cups almond flour (or meal)

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp baking soda

1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup coconut oil, softened (this is my favorite brand)

2 tbsp honey



1/3 cup coconut sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350.

In a blender, combine flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Pulse in the coconut oil and honey.

Roll 1 1/2 tbsp scoops into a ball and then roll through the topping. Put onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten with a cup.

Bake 7-9 minutes and let cool. They may not seem done at the end, but they’ll firm up. If you REALLY don’t think they will, throw them back in for an extra minute.

    Okay, so these didn’t turn out ANYTHING like the photo. HAHA! That’s a bit of a joke, but…. they aren’t half bad. I added an extra 2 tbs of coconut oil and 1 tbs of honey to thicken up the mixture (it wasn’t holding together barely, and that did the trick. They turned out great. A bit dry, but not too bad. Certainly tastes healthier than the other fatty options.ReplyCancel

    • Hey Bill! Sorry you had some trouble. A lot can depend on your almond meal/flour and the solidity of your coconut oil, but I’m glad you were able to make it work. :)ReplyCancel

    I LOVE these cookies. AMAZING.
    I normally don’t go gaga over snickerdoodle but these are so so good.
    I didn’t have enough almond flour so I used my 1/2 cup left over mixture of cashew flour/coconut flour/gluten free flourReplyCancel
