These healthy snickerdoodle cookies are so soft they could be pillows.

Snickerdoodle cookie pillows.

And then we could have a snickerdoodle pillow fight, with sugary cookie dough flying in every direction. Mmm yes, a snickerdoodle pillow fight. How yummy would that be?!

I promise the snickerdoodles do not taste healthy. But don’t take my word for it; try them for yourself. Neil and I couldn’t get enough of these!

  • 1½ cups blanched almond flour
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. coconut palm sugar*
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing until well combined. Add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla, and mix until ingredients are well combined and dough begins to thicken.
  3. Add cinnamon and sugar to a small bowl. Scoop out a rounded tablespoon of dough and roll it between your hands to form a ball. Roll the cookie ball in the cinnamon sugar and place it on your prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the dough has been used up, and then use a jar or flat-bottomed cup to gently flatten each cookie.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes, or until the edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on sheet for ~5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store cookie in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
* If you want to further reduce the amount of sugar, you can completely omit these two spoonfuls and just coat the cookies with cinnamon.
