Paleo Snickerdoodles

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!
