Snicker Doodles {AIP, Paleo}


My all time favorite cookie is the snicker doodle. I'm a huge fan of cinnamon and put it on nearly everything I eat, so these cinnamon laden cookies are just perfect for me.

I tried quite a few paleo versions of snicker doodles, but every time I was disappointed. They weren't snicker doodles, at least, not as I remembered them. I decided to try my hand at making some, and what I ended with was three different cookies - one of which tastes like the snicker doodles of my memories!

And the best part about these recipes is that they are all single servings. That's right. Each recipe makes two cookies. That's just the right portion for me, but if you're feeding more (or have a bigger sweet tooth than I) simply scale up the recipe as you see fit.

Bonus idea - use one of the recipes below as a topper for baked fruit and you'll have the most delicious AIP crumble or crisp ever! Simply chop up your fruit, place in a baking dish and crumble a cookie dough from below over the top. Bake at 180°C (350°F) for 15-20 minutes, or until the fruit is cooked and bubbly.

Paleo Single Serving Snicker Doodles

These cookies are crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside - delicious with or without the sugar coating!

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar of choice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar + 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Mix together all the ingredients using your fingers. 
  3. Separate the dough into two parts and roll into balls. 
  4. If using the sugar coating, mix together the optional sugar and cinnamon, then roll the balls in the mix to cover.
  5. Place balls on a nonstick baking surface and flatten using the bottom of a drinking glass (dip in the sugar mixture to prevent it from sticking).
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool before handling.
