Pile of keto snickerdoodles

Having snickerdoodle flavored desserts on keto leads to very satisfied tummies. Anything cookie related I am down for. But, one of my more popular recipes are a mug cake and no bake cheesecake made snickerdoodle style. Making these was a breeze after several attempt to get the recipe right. It’s modeled after my favorite cookie company ChipMonk. If you love those, you’ll love these because they taste just alike.

How To Make Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies

Ingredients Needed:

  • Blanched Almond Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Granulated Sweetener
  • Beef Gelatin Powder or Konjac Powder (optional)
  • Salt
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Baking Powder
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Egg
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Liquid Monk Fruit (optional)

Cooking Instructions

To start, melt your butter to allow it to cool before adding it your your eggs. The eggs can be straight from the refrigerator because you are going to chill the dough anyways.

Now, while butter is cooling mix together all your dry ingredients. You’ll notice I use a mix of almond flour and coconut flour. This is for texture and very important. Also, beef gelatin powder or konjac powder are used. This is the secret ingredient to the texture to have that soft, chewy feel to them. Without it, the cookies will be far more cake-like. If that’s your thing or you don’t have any on hand you can skip that ingredient.

In the next step, get the cooled butter and mix all of the wet ingredients together. Combine the dry and wet ingredients. Then, cover the cookie dough and allow it to chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator.

Once chilled, preheat the oven and begin forming the keto snickerdoodle cookies. With a cookie scoop, grab a scoopful and roll into a ball in your hand. Next, roll the cookie through the sweetener and cinnamon mix for the outside coating. Press the cookie flat as in the photo then bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool fully. Quick tip, I like to add a dusting after the cookie is done cooking while it’s still cooling. Test this out with half to see which version you like more.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Konjac powder, beef gelatin powder, or regular gelatin out of the store. These all produce very similar results. The harshest will be regular gelatin but the cookie will still be good.
  • You can skip the roll but I highly advise against it. The dusting brings the cookie full circle as true keto snickerdoodles.
  • Your sweetener is very important in this recipe. I suggest allulose or a monk fruit blend for no aftertaste. When it comes to the liquid sweetener it doesn’t matter. But, if you’re someone who hates stevia, monk fruit is a great option. To add, the liquid sweetener gives a boost in sweetness due to the spices being used.

How To Store

Place the leftover cookies in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic or in a food storage container. I have had cookies last weeks in the refrigerator and months as frozen cookie dough. I made the recipe small enough so that this shouldn’t be a problem but you can always freeze some cookie dough for later.

Note, if freezing cookie dough be sure to chill the dough first before freezing.
