Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies

KETO CHEESECAKE STUFFED SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES

These Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies are the perfect soft and chewy cookies.

They combine two of what I’ve deemed to be reader recipe favourites, Snickerdoodles and Cheesecake. (See some of my past most popular recipes at the bottom of this post!)

These cookies are based off my previous Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies but for this recipe I’ve enhanced the texture of the cookies themselves with a few ingredient changes! Plus of course, added some cinnamon.

(*BONUS I’ve also figured out a way easier way to stuff them so you don’t end up with a mess)

Ingredients In Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies

  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Xanthan gum –This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the cookies a chewier texture.
  • Powdered/Granular Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. But it bakes well in any recipe. **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of trouble ordering the first one so you can order whichever is easier for you!
  • Whole Psyllium Husks – This is my secret ingredient for creating soft and chewy low carb cookies! I don’t recommend trying to sub with ground psyllium unless you use 1 tsp in replacement of the 1 tbsp because sometimes you can end up with a weird slightly slimy texture to the center of your cookies if you use too much.

Tips For Making Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies

  • Feel free to make these cookies half the size to allow for smaller portions and reduced calories. I personally just enjoy having one large cookie and I think they look cool when they are jumbo! Haha.
  • I don’t recommend trying to sub with ground psyllium unless you use 1 tsp in replacement of the 1 tbsp because sometimes you can end up with a weird slightly slimy texture to the center of your cookies if you use too much. I’d also recommend still using a a food processor to grind everything together for this recipe EVEN if using ground psyllium.
  • Unfortunately these contain cream cheese so they cannot be left on the counter. They are fine sitting out for a few hours after baking them but I’d recommend storing them in the fridge or freezer after that.
  • These come out super soft at first. Don’t be tempted to over-bake them. They will harden up as they cool. 10-11min is perfect for most ovens but feel free to do a test cookie or bake them longer if your prefer a crunchier cookie. (*Note make sure these are FULLY cool, as-in not hot anymore whatsoever if you want to check the texture as they set quite a lot in the fridge)

What If I Don’t Have A Food Processor?

  • If you don’t have a food processor you can still make these! I would just suggest leaving out the psyllium husks entirely and instead adding 2 extra tablespoons of coconut flour (14g) when making these.

Tools I Used To Make Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

  1. Tried these out for 4th of July and was very impressed and happy with the results! I have made several others from your recipe posts, the cheesecake filled chocolate chip cookies and the caramel filled double chocolate chip cookies but so far these are probably my favorite! The only thing is that the dough is very sticky for me and I usually have to lather my hands in butter spray before going in lol and I do let the dough set aside to thicken. It could be that I do not use the same almond or coconut flour you do since I use Bob’s Red Mill, and I also do not have a food processor at the moment to grind my whole psyllium husk. Overall, just want to thank you for your recipes they are bomb! I have been keto for 3 months and whenever I get discouraged I look to your reddit page or blog and this motivates me to keep going. Thank you for your hard work Sammy!
