Soft Low Carb Snickerdoodles
These cookies are soft just like their ful sugar counterparts.
These cookies are made with coconut flour which makes them have a soft silky texture.
I make low carb cookies by combining high quality keto ingredients together.
Coconut flour is great for ketogenic diets because they are very low in carb and high in fiber.
How did Snickerdoodles get their name?
Snickerdoodles are a traditional Dutch-German biscuits.
In that sense, the biscuits as we know them were brought to the United States by Dutch immigrants. Earlier names for cookies such as Snickerdoodles and Cry Babies originated with the New England states. Even with its early history, cookies did not become popular until about a hundred years ago.https://www.biscuitpeople.com/magazine/post/snickerdoodle
What makes a Snickerdoodle Special?
What makes Snickerdoodles different from other cookies two key ingredients.
Cream of tartar and the cinnamon that the dough is rolled in before baking.
Cream of tartar helps keep the Snickerdoodles chewy, soft, and delicious.
The Cinnamon and sugar mixture that the dough is rolled in is not only iconic but also very pleasing to the palate.
My favorite zero carb sweetener to use is Golden Monk Fruit. This sweetener is a combination of Erythritol and Monk Fruit.
It tastes very similar to brown sugar. I use Golden Monk fruit in most of my keto cookies and cake recipes. (PS use code OMGKETO15 to save 15% off sitewide!)
Keto Snickerdoodles tips and tricks
- Once you have made the dough don’t forget to place the cookie dough in the refrigerator to cool. This will help hold the cookies together as you roll.
- Don’t squeeze the balls in order to make them thick and soft. If you squish them then they will make flatter cookies.
- Mix the wet then the dry ingredients.
- Use a cooling rack to cool the cookies evenly and quickly.
- Don’t be tempted to taste the snickerdoodles until they have cooled completely. Keto baking tastes best when it has cooled for 15-20 minutes.

- 7 TBS Coconut Flour
- 4 Eggs
- 8 TBS Softened Coconut oil or Butter
- 1.5 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Cream of Tartar
- 1/4 Tsp Salt (to taste)
- 1 Cup Golden Monk fruit (OMGKETO15 to save 15%)
- 1.5 Tsp Baking Powder
- 2 tsp Golden Monk Fruit
- 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and assemble your ingredients. Cream the softened butter with the Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, and Golden Monk Fruit with a hand mixer.
- Add the eggs and the remaining dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Cover the bowl and chill for about 10 minutes. This will help the dough stay together and not fall apart as you roll balls. If the dough seems too runny add a bit more coconut flour to the mix and then let it sit in the refrigerator to firm up.
- Combine the topping ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Roll the cookie dough into 24 balls and then roll them in the topping mixture covering the balls completely.
- Place the balls on the cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes until they are done. Cool the snickerdoodles on a cooling rack or on the counter for about 15-20 minutes. Trust me, wait until the cookies have cooled, they're way more awesome once they have cooled. Have a great day!
