These Snickerdoodle Cookies get two thumbs up! They are sweet and soft, but not too sweet, and freeze perfectly too. These grain-free Paleo snickerdoodles are on the healthier side and allergy-friendly with no added eggs or dairy.
You only need 30 minutes from start to finish before your taste buds are thanking you and begging for more. I’m not kidding! Plus these are the easiest snickerdoodles I have ever made.
I used date sugar for the outside rolling, but feel free to substitute with any of the following:
- Coconut sugar
- Beet sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Cane sugar
If you want or need to substitute the almond flour try Tigernut flour or sunflower seed flour for best results.
