Alright alright, these aren't true snickerdoodles, but there is something about them that reminds me of my favorite childhood treat, matured and with a touch more class.
They hint at almond without screaming it in your face, are soft and chewy and somehow leave you feeling satisfied after just one or two.
And they take about ten minutes to make. Are you sold yet?
Almond Flour Snickerdoodles
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. raw sugar
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp. almond extract
3/8 tsp. salt
In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar together.
Mix all remaining ingredients together in food processor until the dough gathers and turns in to a ball. With slightly wet hands, roll dough in to 12 small balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Flatten into cookie shapes. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes, rotate and continue for another 4 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Set aside to cool before enjoying.
