Default Candice’s Low Carb Snickerdoodles (cinnamon sugar cookies)

Out of all the cookies I made, snickerdoodles are by far my favorite. There is something about the sweet buttery cinnamon tasting cookie. So here is my low carb version.


Hope you enjoy!!


Candice’s Low Carb Snickerdoodles (cinnamon sugar cookies)




Makes 20 cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated splenda
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

cinnamon splenda mix: *optional*
1 Tablespoon splenda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions:

In small bowl add coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter & splenda until light and fluffy in mixer with paddle attachment.
Add eggs & vanilla extract while mixer is running. Scrap down sides.
Then add your coconut flour mixture.
Mix till just combined on low, then turn mixer on MED/HIGH and beat till mixture is completely smooth, only takes a few seconds.

Refrigerate dough for at least an hour before using in an airtight container. This will make it easier to scoop and work with.

To make cinnamon splenda mix. Just put the 1 Tablespoon of splenda in a baggy and using a rolling pin, roll over a few times to crush the splenda. Makes nice powder. Add cinnamon and mix/shake up. Set aside.



Preheat oven to 350F

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper, or nonstick baking liner.
Scoop with a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop(#60), if you don’t have one, scoop 1 Tablespoon then roll in your hand to make ball.
Press down cookie with palm of your hand, just enough to flatten slightly.
Sprinkle with a little of the splenda cinnamon mixture.
Bake ~ 350F for 10 minutes

So your carbs here are not net carbs? It looks like 1.38 net carbs. Is that right? Subtract the fiber from the total carbs?

They look good. Going to the zoo tomorrow and I wanted to pack a treat with my lunch. Thanks.

Hi! I just got done reading you blog. What an inspiring story and what a cute taste tester you have!!

My question is.. I noticed that you use coconut flour for most of your recipes. Is there a reason for this? I'm not a big fan of coconut does it have a strong flavor?
Thanks!!

Would these still work with packet or liquid splenda, or does the granular provide texture and bulk?

Granular splenda does not provide any texture or bulk when introduced to any wet item - it just melts away- its only bulking purpose is to measure cup for cup like sugar - you are better off using drops or packets, less carbs that way!!

I have found it in my Kroger's store, in the baking aisle or sometimes its with the "health foods." I got Bob's Red Mill brand. I've also seen it in some natural grocer stores, like Sprouts, where you can buy it in bulk.

Well....I couldn't get coconut flour at Krogers...they said that they never heard of it.

I tried to make some by grinding it up in the blender...hmm...not that great.

I'm also wondering...it's ONLY 1/4 cup of coconut flour? It seems like it would be a lot more..like 1 1/4 cup....

Either that or my homemade coconut flour was not working like real flour would....

I ended up putting a LOT more flour in and then getting on the web and buying some coconut flour from Amazon for next time.
