I love sweets, but I’m finding healthier alternatives to the processed, refined sugar sweets I used to crave. These Paleo Snickerdoodles by @paleorunningmomma are a great alternative for when I want something a little sweet… especially around the holiday season. They’re dairy free, gluten free, and vegan!
1/3 cup coconut oil
6 Tbsp almond butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup maple sugar or coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 2 1/2 Tbsp water, set aside for 10-15 minutes)
1 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
2 Tbsp + 1 tsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
Okay, I’ll be honest. I didn’t have any almond butter, so I used peanut butter (gasp!)I didn’t have flax seeds so I used a real egg (another gasp!). My cookies came out a little thicker (I should have flattened them out more) but otherwise, they were so delicious!
