The holiday season brings a lot of sweets to tempt us, but don't fall for it! There are plenty of paleo-friendly (and even vegan-friendly) recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth without falling off track. This paleo snickerdoodle cookie recipe is just what we want to get into the holiday spirit without coming out of winter looking like Santa! If this recipe is used without honey as the sweetener it can be vegan. Enjoy this decadent treat and have a happy holiday!
Yields 34 cookies
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 25 Minutes
1/2 Cup + 1 Tbsp Spectrum ground flax seed
1 1/2 Cup + 3 Tbsp water
2/3 Cup maple syrup or honey
2/3 Cup coconut oil melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups coconut flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
pinch nutmeg optional
4 Tbsp coconut sugar
3 tsp ground cinnamon
Heat over to 400.
Prepare a cookie sheet with a silpat liner or greased parchment paper.
Stir the flax meal and water together. Set aside to thicken.
Beat the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and egg together.
In a separate bowl, whisk the coconut flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and nutmeg together.
Stir the ground flax meal into the wet ingredients.
Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet until a soft dough forms.
Stir the coconut sugar and cinnamon together in a shallow bowl. Form the dough into 30 two-tablespoon-sized balls and roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Arrange the cookies on the sheet. They don't spread much, so you should be able to get at least 15 on the sheet.
Lightly grease the bottom of a glass and use it to flatten each cookie as much or little as you like. Re-grease the glass as needed.
Bake eight to ten minutes. When the cookies come out of the oven, let them stand a few minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.
Repeat with remaining dough.
Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least a week. They keep very well and the texture improves as they sit in the fridge. You can also freeze them in an airtight container.
Holiday delish in a dish!
(Kristine Burke, M.D.) Great medical practice and team. Dr. Burke's personal attention to detail and explanation to my questions are greatly appreciated. I'm so grateful I found Dr. Burke. Her enthusiasm and knowledge is refreshing as we dig through years of health issues I could not find solutions or causes for. I found out many of my issues resulted from damaging prescrip...
(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I love this practice model! I've never felt better. Find the problem and fix it instead of treat the problem with drugs - brilliant!
(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I greatly appreciate the availability of the Dr.'s time and short waits for appointments. I think being rushed in and out serves little purpose. From the day I started going to Dr. Burke I expressed my expectations of my doctor, which are what we get now. I'm sure there is a lot I don't understand in terms of insurance coverage and laws in this state,...

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I like that I am not just treated for a specific symptom, but that my overall health is evaluated. I like that I can call and usually get an appointment for myself or my children within 24 hours, and sometimes the same day if crucial. The fact that my daughter gets free healthcare through her employer (Sutter Health) and sees Sutter providers but she ...
I feel sooo.....happy that I was introduced to True Health Center For Functional Medicine. All of the employees are present and much more involved in the individual's health. Thank You!
