Healthier Snickerdoodles

These cookies are packed full of nutrients and healthy fats and free from refined sugar and gluten. The main ingredient is almonds. Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce hunger and promote weight loss. So leave these out for Santa but feel free to indulge too! 


Healthy Snickerdoodles

1/2 cup coconut oil 
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups blanched almond flour 

For the Topping:
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon





Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the coconut oil and maple syrup 
Add the vanilla and eggs, mixing until well incorporated. Mix in the baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the almond flour, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix together the remaining sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl or shallow dish. Roll the cookie dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon rounds, then roll to coat in the sugar mixture. Drop the coated dough onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, about 3 inches apart.
Bake 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown around edges. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
