The softest grain free snickerdoodles with hints of warm cinnamon and sugar in every bite. These easy, grain and gluten free snickerdoodles are paleo-friendly, too, and made with a mix of almond flour and coconut flour. This will be your new go-to healthy snickerdoodle recipe!
In a medium bowl, add in melted coconut oil or melted butter, sugar, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well combined, smooth and creamy.
Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Mix until a dough forms. Allow dough to sit for 5 minutes to thicken up while you make the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Use your hands to roll dough into 10 golf-sized balls, then roll each dough ball into cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated completely. Place each dough ball on prepared cookie sheet then flatten each with the palm of your hand so that they are about 1/4th inch thick.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and allow cookies to cool completely. Makes 10 cookies.
