Paleo Snickerdoodles

Cookies are kind of my thing.  They have been for a long time.  I like making them and I love eating them.  Snickerdoodles are one of the few that I haven't tried making into a paleo-fied version of.  My four year old absolutely loved these.  Which is saying a lot, since he is not a sweets kind of kid.  He ate 5 cookies in one sitting and quite honestly I didn't mind, he is a skinny little man that could use the calories.  :)  Hope you like them at least half as much as he did.



Paleo Snickerdoodles
 
3/4 cup grassfed butter (softened), ghee or coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut sugar/maple sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup arrowroot
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp coconut sugar/maple sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.  In large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs and mix well to combine.  Add almond flour, arrowroot, coconut flour, cream of tartar, salt, and baking soda.  Mix until combined.  In small bowl, mix remaining sugar and cinnamon.  Scoop out tablespoons of dough, and roll into balls.  Roll the balls into the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your fingers or a fork.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on sheets for 2 minutes then move to cooling racks.  Serve and enjoy!
