Ingredients
  1. 2 cups blanched almond flour, sifted (the sifting is optional, but will make the cookies smoother)
  2. 1 small pinch sea salt
  3. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  4. 1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional, the cookies are great with it just on the coating, too)
  5. 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  6. 1/4 honey (or agave, if you're a strict vegan)
  7. 2 tsp vanilla extract
For the Cinnamon Coating
  1. 2 Tbs ground cinnamon
  2. 2 Tbs coconut or maple sugar (optional, but if you omit it, increase the cinnamon to 3-4 Tbs)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the almond flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and stir until well combined. NOTE: at this point, the dough may resemble course crumbs, but that's totally fine, as long as you squeeze it when you make it into balls so it holds together.
  5. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the dough, and roll it into a ball.
  6. Briefly dip the ball in a small bowl of water, then dip it in the cinnamon and sugar to coat.
  7. Place the ball on the baking sheet, then flatten it out with the palm of your hand.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 with the rest of the dough.
  9. Bake the snickerdoodles for 7-9 minutes.
  10. The cookies will be a bit soft when the come out of the oven, so let them cool for at least 15 min before serving. Enjoy!

    Just made these cookies for my 10 year old daughter, she asked me to add chocolate chips to them (I use dark chocolate chips). She’s a big fan of sugar so it was going to be fun to see what she thought of them. I used agave instead of honey and for the coating mixed coconut sugar and maple sugar with the cinnamon (not sure why).
    I cooked them for 9 minutes because I like my cookies a little more cooked. It was hard to wait the 15 minutes while they cooled but finally were able to bite into one.
    My daughter enjoyed them, especially the sugar coating and the chocolate chips. She gave it a 4 1/2 rating because she said it wasn’t as sweet as she’s used to but I really enjoyed that they were just sweet enough. Thank you!
