Grain, Sugar, Gluten and Dairy Free Snickerdoodle Cookies

These sweet cinnamon sugar-like cookies may not look like much, but they’re deliciously tasty without being sinful! They’re soft and chewy– the perfect sweet treat that won’t send your pancreas into a tailspin.

These cookies are sugar, gluten, grain and dairy free, so pretty much everyone can enjoy them!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 C coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup melted unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup Swerve (or 2/3 cup granulated erythritol)
  • 1 T raw organic honey (or natural honey substitute– I used xylitol honey)
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan or guar gum (optional)
Directions:
 
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine almond and coconut flours, cinnamon, salt, Swerve and xanthan/guar gum (optional). Mix until evenly combined.
  3. Add in two whole eggs, melted coconut oil, coconut milk and honey (or honey sub) and stir well with a metal or wooden spoon.
  4. Scoop cookies into one-inch balls and place onto cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie with your hand until it’s about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Bake cookies at 350 for about 12 minutes or until they are firm and barely golden around the edges.
  6. Leave cookies on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes until you attempt to move them (they’ll firm up as they cool). Move to cooling rack and then serve.

It takes a lot of trial and error to find the "right" fit for a low carb recipe. I have made some ... different low carb desserts. You don't need to go through that! I made a list of my favorite ingredients as well as what stores you can find them at. Enjoy!

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
