This recipe idea came from my sister who has quite the opinion on cookies so I accepted her challenge. These are 100% Paleo, easy to make, and perfectly cinnamon-y. They're a cakey texture in cookie form... hence the name! Enjoy!

paleo snickerdoodles


  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a mixing bowl combine your flours, sugar, xanthan gum, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.

  3. Next add in your vanilla, eggs, and the coconut oil, melted.

  4. Mix your ingredients well.

  5. Drop your mixture onto a well greased cookie sheet by the tablespoonful. Your batter will be thin but they will only spread slightly.

  6. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with a little coconut sugar and cinnamon.

  7. Bake for 8-10 until the outsides start to crisp.

Makes 14 cookies 

*Little tip: These cookies tend to stick so make sure you use enough oil on your cookie sheet.
