Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookies(Keto Option)

Hillary and Chris Johnsonare expecting their third child!

Sweet, Buttery and bursting with cinnamon flavour..what more could you want in a cookie?

I recently got the chance to taste a snickerdoodle gluten-free cookie that my Mother was so kind to bring me home from a local gluten-free bakery. The cookie was apparently their top seller so I was extremely excited to try it! Much to my disappointment the cookie was dry and SUPER sweet. It tasted like something you’d get in a package. I thought to myself that I could have made a better cookie! So..of course, me being a little competitive, I did just that (at least I think). These cookies are a little more crumbly than I would have liked (sometimes an issue with almond flour). But the flavour is delicious! I definitely would have devoured the whole plate in one sitting if I didn’t have some level of self control..lol. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Ingredients:

-1 cup(120g) gluten-free oat flour (OR ~ 1/4 cup(28g)-1/3 cup(37g) coconut flour-start with 1/4 cup and add more as needed to reach cookie dough consistency)
-1/2 cup +2 tbsp almond flour(70g)
-1 tbsp flax meal(5g)
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp xanthan gum
-1/2 cup unsalted butter(120g), softened
-1/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar (Can sub 2 tbsp truvia or another sweetener)
-2 tbsp truvia
-2 tbsp brown sugar (Can sub a sweetener + 1/8 tsp molasses)
-1 egg
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Topping:
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tbsp sugar
-1 tbsp Truvia

(Combine all 3 in a small bowl)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients except the sugars in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sweetener.
