70 Calorie Almond Flour Snickerdoodle Cookies!

Paleo Almond Flour Snicker Doodles

Remember the delicious paleo chocolate chip cookies I made last fall? Well, they were a hit and I’ve used the same recipe as a base for all of my almond flour cookies! Today, I made them into one of my favorites…Snickerdoodle cookies!

They turned out perfect, soft and delicious! They taste like breakfast cinnamon toast stuffed in a cookie! I can’t wait to eat these all weekend!

Have a great Friday, everyone!

Paleo Almond Flour Snickerdoodles

*2 & 2/3 Cups Almond Flour (Not Packed Down)  *1 Tsp Baking Soda,  *2 Tsp Pure Vanilla
*1/2 Cup Pure Maple Syrup.(If you are trying to watch your calories you can use a light syrup)  *3 Packets Stevia *2 Large Eggs *2 Tbsps Ground Cinnamon  *1/3 Cup Coconut Oil, Melted

 Mix the almond flour and baking soda together.

 In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, vanilla, and syrup. 

 Mix together the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl.

Now would be the perfect time to preheat that oven to 375 degrees!

Mix in the two tablespoons of ground cinnamon.

Melt the coconut oil and mix it into the batter. The original recipe said it was okay to add extra almond flour if your batter ends up being too runny but my batter stayed firm. I guess it all depends on the quality of your coconut oil.

 Drop the cookies onto the sheet. (about 1 & 1/2 tablespoon) The dough is trickier to work with because it has no flour. Don’t be afraid to get those fingers sticky! Place them on the GREASED baking sheet and press down into a cookie form with your fingers.

Bake about 10-11 minutes. Let them cool for about two minutes.

Remove from the baking sheet and add to a cooling rack or a separate plate.

    I just took these out of the oven, but I didn’t get 40-45 cookies…I only got 17 using just a tablespoon scoop? I followed the recipe to a T, any thoughts?

    They smell yummy, but I haven’t tried one yet. Thanks for the recipe!

    These look so delicious. I might sub out some more unhealthy things just because I love snicker doodles but loving the addition of maple syrup.

      Those were the pictures from my paleo chocolate chip cookies at the bottom:) I use the same base recipe for all the paleo almond flour cookies! I just jazz them up with different flavorings.

    I was just looking at a similar recipe over at delightedmomma.com. She used honey to sweeten her cookies but I think your syrup idea sounds better. Like you, I like me sweets sweeeeet!

    I was wondering did you add chocolate chips? It looks like you have a bag of chocolate chips in your ingredient image.

    Would it work to sub applesauce or banana for the coconut oil?
