ITS COOKIE WEEK!!! My favorite week of the year and I’m so excited you’re here 🙂 Did you miss Monday’s Healthy Peanut Butter Blossoms or Tuesday’s Paleo Chocolate Mint Cookies? Well you might wanna scoot over there and get them, cause they are both insaneeeee!
There are fewer things in life that I love more than a snickerdoodle cookie. The sweet cinnamon sugar coating on top of the rich and buttery cake, with a soft inside and a chewy outside. That to me is perfection.
They have long been one of my favorite cookies and I can remember when I was little my mom and I would always split whenever whenever we were out. It was always between white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and snickerdoodles.
When I started planning my Holiday Cookie Week, I knew that I had to include snickerdoodles on the list of cookies because who doesn’t want to learn how to make the beloved cookie into a healthier version?!
So as you know, I’ve officially dedicated this week to being 2018 Holiday Cookie Week and I am so excited for you to see what’s in store. I’m talking like I’ve been baking in the kitchen from morning to night prepping some of these cookies, trying them over and over again until they are perfect.
I mean, who doesn’t love an entire week dedicated to cookies? That kind of sounds like my version of heaven.
I started testing some of these recipes back in October and my parents were thrilled when they saw all of the holiday cookies coming out so early. I even had to order candy canes off of Amazon for one of the cookies, I didn’t even bother to try in store because I had a feeling that I wasn’t going to find any anywhere.
Anyway, back to these paleo snickerdoodle cookies.
They are so easy to make, I’m certain that anyone could do it and they come together in less than 30 minutes total. BOOM!
All you need is a few basic ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, maple syrup (click here to view all of my favorites!)
