Much to my surprise, I recently found out that Scott had no idea what a snickerdoodle is. He thought it was something involving a Snickers bar, which he was pretty stoked about due his love of Snickers. But I hate Snickers, and it was time to teach that man about the amazing holiday cookie that is the snickerdood. Like a sugar cookie, but with cinnamon.


  • 2 cups blanched almond flour 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or butter (I use expeller pressed, no coconut flavor)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup raw honey (add a tablespoon or two for a sweeter cookie)
  • 1 tablespoon GF vanilla extract


  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all ingredients.
  3. Form batter into about 12 balls and press onto cookie sheet (helpful to use parchment paper).
  4. Sprinkle the topping over the cookies.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes (my oven cooks slowly).

These are super moist and chewy. Even Scott, who “hates” almond flour said they taste like “normal” cookies. I’ll take it!


  1. Thanks Simone, I’m going to make these for my dad, he’s mostly grain free and rellay enjoy’s Mary’s Gone Crackers, these look like a great alternative.

  2. YUMMO! Snicker doodles are a year round favorite for me. Thanks for a way to enjoy them again.

  4. Is there an easy way to print this recipe? I tried to copy and paste it but it’s highlighted – going to use a lot of ink.

  5. Hi there,

    so so so many things here need almond flour, what can one do if they are allergic to nuts?


  6. Wow just made these; they are De-lecious. Thank you for sharing ????

    I made these. I checked them at 10 minutes and the bottoms were starting to burn. Help! I really need a good gluten free snickerdoodle for my little boy!

      All ovens and baking sheets are different. You might try turning your oven down 25 degrees.
