If you have a sweet craving..then these cookies have got your back.

Reminiscent of my childhood when I attempted these cookies oneee too many times (back when I wasn't even keto) and couldn't even get them to taste this good.

Sure shows where a little trial and error and can get you! If you'd like, I have an updated version of this recipe that's even better that you can find here: The Best Keto Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

Keto cream cheese snickerdoodles

These Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies are made using almond flour as the base with an addition of coconut flour to add some lightness to the recipe.

They also use a tiny amount of arrowroot starch or cornstarch and cream of tartar to keep them extra soft and fluffy in the centers. 

The sweetener I use in these cookies is a monkfruit and erythritol blend. It has the most “real” sugar flavour out of any sweetener in my opinion and always blends seamlessly into any keto baked goods.

I've linked my favourite one below but any sweetener will work in this recipe! Just adjust based on personal preference.

Tips For Making Keto Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

  • These cookies will come out very soft but will firm up a bit at room temperature. Don't be tempted to over-bake them!
  • Try using a high quality granulated sweetener for the coating. You can either use a monkfruit/erythritol granulated sweetener or try Truvia! Truvia is great because it's less likely to melt and stays granular longer.

  • Don't have almond flour? You can try making these with 1 1/4 cups coconut flour + 1 extra egg.
  • Don't have coconut flour? You can try making these with 3 1/2 – 4 cups almond flour

These were really flavorful and soft! Mine came out a little dry, and I’m wondering if decreasing the coconut flour and increasing the almond flour in its place may alleviate a bit of the dryness? Or would that make them fall apart? Either way, I’m still eating them!
