The Best Grain Free Snickerdoodles (paleo + low in sugar)

I know that the holidays are coming up and we are all going to turn into cookie monsters, and I for one totally agree. Just because I turn into a cookie monster doesn’t mean I have to throw away all my thoughts on food and how I eat. I actually created – I can’t believe these cookies are paleo + low in sugar- cause they basically taste WAY too good for them to be. I mean these cookies are soft, thick and basically everything a cookie should be.

I make them extra special by adding one of my favorite adaptogens ever reishi and hella ton of cinnamon + my little gift to you all a cookie recipe that smells amazing without baking them. I mean you do have to bake them, but once you start mixing this up, well you will totally understand why I am obsessed. I made these cookies for the first time about two weeks ago and have made them since about four or five times. They are that good and they are gonna be made on Christmas with my little brother who is visiting from collage and again on New Years. Cause hello what is New Years without cookies. I don’t know.

Snickerdoodles are probably one of my favorite holiday cookies and if I am saying these cookies are too good for words then I am basically saying these cookies are legit. It still has the same buttery, soft texture you have from the non paleo regular full of sugar ones.

I’ll let you babes be the judge, but I think I made out alright.

These grain free snickerdoodle are soft, chewy and thick, the perfect cookie in any way shape or form. Only that they aren’t made with refined sugar or butter. Crazy, right.? Nope not really, just taste them and see what I mean.

Bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before enjoying. They will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days if they make it that long.
