Ingredients

Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour 224g
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour 85g
  • 1/2 cup monkfruit/erythritol sweetener you can use 10 tbsp if you prefer things sweeter
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch optional, makes the centers softer!
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Topping

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350*F.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together your cream cheese, eggs and butter and vanilla until relatively smooth.
  • In another large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients including the sweetener.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and use a large spoon to combine until a rough dough forms.
  • Grease 2-3 cookie sheets with butter or oil and combine your topping ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Roll a piece of dough into a small ball and place it in the topping mixture, roll to coat, then place on the cookie sheet.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough. Flatten each ball slightly with a spoon before baking.
  • Bake for 10-11min or until bottoms are lightly browned (cookies will harden up when left to cool).
  • Serve warm or store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the freezer for a future treat!
  • Enjoy your keto cream cheese snickerdoodles !

Notes

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.
