Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodles

Dear Reader,

While on vacation this summer, my older daughter got a real bakery snickerdoodle, as big and sugary as can be (bought by her aunt). My younger daughter, who is off gluten, soy and most dairy, got a leftover brownie. Now the brownies were good, but she still had to watch that snickerdoodle being eaten. So I promised her I would figure out how to make gluten-free snickerdoodles when we got hoe. Here they are. These ones can also be made dairy-free and they are low carb.THMers, these are an S. I am indebted for this recipe to both Betty Crocker, whose recipe they are based off of, and Maria Mind Body Health, whose biscuit recipe I used as the base.

Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Snickerdoodles

Ingredients:

1/2 protein powder (use egg white if dairy-free)

3 1/2 c blanched almond meal (must be blanched; it has a different consistency)

1 tbsp xantham gum

3 tbsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

4 eggs

1/2 c butter (if dairy-free, omit and increase coconut oil to 1 cup)

1/2 c coconut oil

2 c xylitol

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 c xylitol

1/3 c cinnamon

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon liners.

2. In a medium bowl, combine protein powder, almond meal, xantham, powder, and salt. Stir until uniform.

3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, butter, oil, 2 c xylitol, and vinegar. Stir.

4. Add dry ingredients to wet. Mix well.

5. In a small bowl, mix 1/2 c xylitol and cinnamon.

6. Roll dough into 1″ balls and then roll each in cinnamon sugar. Place on cookie sheets.

7. Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes. The cookies may just begin to get brown and should crack at the tops. These cookies spread out a little when baked but still remain a fairly thick cookie.

Makes 30 good-sized cookies.
