How to make the best gluten free snickerdoodles
It’s really easy to make these gluten free cookies. With minimal ingredients and simple instructions, you’ll have a batch out of the oven in 25 minutes. Here’s what you do.
- Mix up the dry ingredients.
- Cut the ghee or coconut oil into the dry ingredients. I just use a fork to mix the room temperature ghee or coconut oil into the dry ingredients until it’s crumbly.
- Add the rest of the wet ingredients.
- Roll into balls and coat in cinnamon/sugar mixture.
- Flatten and bake.
What gluten free flours do you use
For these homemade snickerdoodles, we used Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour and Tapioca Flour. Both flours are certified gluten free and non-gmo, too. The Almond Flour is made from whole, blanched almonds and for baking, I prefer to use blanched almond flour versus almond meal. It helps to make the texture light and fluffy.
We turn to Bob’s Red Mill for gluten free and Paleo friendly baking flours and have for years. You’ll see us using their flours in lots of our recipes – from sweet recipes like these snickerdoodles to healthy muffins like our lemon poppy seed muffins to savory dishes like our creamy Tuscan chicken! We love the quality of their products from mill to table and the fact that they’re a local Oregon company!
How to make them Vegan snickerdoodles
It’s really easy to make these cookies Vegan. Rather than using ghee, you just use room temperature coconut oil and follow all the same instructions. All the rest of the ingredients are Vegan friendly and they turn out great either way!

Gluten Free Snickerdoodles
- 1.5 cups Bob's Red Mill blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Bob's Red Mill tapioca flour
- 2 tsp paleo baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/3 cup maple sugar, (or coconut sugar)
- 1/4 cup ghee, room temperature, (or coconut oil for Vegan)
- 1/4 cup almond milk, (or other non-dairy milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the cinnamon sugar coating:
- 2 tbsp maple sugar, (or coconut sugar)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, salt and maple sugar.
- Using a fork, cut the solid ghee or coconut oil into the the mixture until crumbly. Stir in the almond milk and vanilla until a dough forms.
- Mix about 2 tbsp maple sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl or on a plate.
- Roll dough into 12 balls, about the size of an oversized golf ball. Roll balls in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and place on lined baking sheet. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the cookies a bit – just a little because they will expand while baking.
- Transfer to oven and bake for about 9 minutes. The edges will start to turn golden brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet. Store in an airtight container on the counter.
We really enjoyed these cookies – not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy our cravings!

Snickderdoodles are my daughter’s favorite cooky. She tried these while visiting me and we loved them so much. She served them to friends and family who visited during her visit; most said they are the best snickerdoodles they have ever had. Needless to say, I sent the link to several folks. Thanks for a healthier alternative to a classic favorite!

These are amazing!!!! Thanks so much for the recipe! Big hit in my house. I did find them a bit sticky to roll but I made It work 😉
So glad they were a hit for the whole fam! And next time, if they seem a little too sticky you can either pop the dough in the freezer for a little bit to firm it up, or add a little bit more tapioca flour. Thanks so much for giving our recipe a try and for coming back to share how it went! We appreciate it! 🙂
