How To Make Low Carb Keto Snickerdoodles Cookies

These low carb snickerdoodle cookies are made with the same concept – except we’ve made them low carb and keto! Instead of using sugar, we’re using a keto and low carb sweetener, and instead of flour, we’re using almond flour. It still tastes like your favorite cookie, but in a healthier package.

How To Make Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies

This keto snickerdoodle cookie recipe is an easy one, which is convenient because you can make them whenever your snickerdoodle keto cookie craving strikes!

Let me show you how to make keto snickerdoodle cookies with almond flour:

  • Mix together low carb snickerdoodles dough. Using a hand mixer, cream the butter and sweetener together until fluffy.

TIP: Using a golden sweetener gives the cookies a brown-sugar-like flavor, but you can use regular granulated if that’s all you have.

  • Add remaining ingredients. Beat in the cinnamon, xanthan gum, and baking powder. When combined, beat in the egg and vanilla.

TIP: The xanthan gum makes the cookies soft and chewy! If you prefer to avoid it, try a tablespoon of unflavored gelatin powder instead.

  • Add almond flour. Beat in the almond flour 1/2 cup at a time. The cookie dough will be a bit crumbly, like this:
  • Mix together coating. In a small bowl, stir together sweetener blend and cinnamon.
  • Form cookies. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop the dough. Release and roll the snickerdoodle cookie dough balls into the cinnamon coating.
  • Place cookies on baking sheet. After they’ve gotten a roll in the cinnamon coating, place them on a prepared cookie sheet and lightly flatten using the palm of your hand.

TIP: The cookies won’t spread much, so you’ll need to flatten them to the thickness you want before baking. They can form cracks on the edges as you flatten them, which is totally fine!

  • Bake. Bake the cookies until golden. Cool completely before removing them from the pan!
