Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies! They are nostalgic and remind me of childhood because they are my brother’s absolute favorite. Since converting my mom to THM over 6 years ago, she has become quite the THM chef & baker. She loves re-creating our favorite dishes & desserts &Β  making up new ones. She so generously shares her creations with me so I can share them with you! Mom lovingly calls these snickerdoodles “Snicks”. She prefers to use just almond flour with these for the simplicity of them but I like the texture of the almond flour, baking blend, & oat fiber. Choose your preference! The dough is really crumbly so be patient, but after they’re cooled the cookies come together really nicely & have that perfect blend of cinnamon & cream of tarter that you expect fo find in a snickerdoodle cookie πŸ˜‰ These are also really fun to make with younger kids. They love making the balls and rolling them in the cinnamon & sugar mixture & then flattening them with their little palms;) Here are my youngest two πŸ™‚
