Paleo Snickerdoodles (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

  • Author: Katie
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 27 minutes
  • Yield: 15 cookies 1x


These Paleo snickerdoodles are made with almond flour and are completely gluten free, grain free and dairy free.  They have a soft, tender texture and literally melt in your mouth.




Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar*
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
  3. Mix in the shortening, egg, egg yolk and vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, make the cinnamon sugar coating by mixing together coconut sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Scoop the cookie dough and roll it into balls about 1 rounded Tbsp in size.  Individually roll each ball in the cinnamon sugar coating and place on a baking sheet.  Using your hand, slightly press down each cookie so that they form a disk-like shape.
  6. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
  7. Remove the cookies from the oven and cool on the baking pan.


*For a low carb version, substitute the coconut sugar with any sugar-free sweetener.  I recommend monk fruit sweetener.
