Oh my goodness, I love these Paleo Snickerdoodle Cookies!

Honestly you would never know these cookies are missing dairy and gluten.  If you are a fan of the Girl Scout Samoa cookies, you’ll absolutely love these and probably find yourself eating the whole pan.  I say that because I almost did, and I am almost certain they would be amazing if you added some chocolate chips!

So it’s time to indulge my friends!  Make yourself some yummy Paleo Snickerdoodle Cookies!

paleo cookies recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Honey
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2.5 cups  Almond Meal
1 t Cinnamon
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
3 T sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon, mixed together, to roll cookies in.

The Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large bowl mix all dry ingredients and set aside.  In a separate bowl, whisk Honey, Eggs, Coconut Oil and Vanilla.  Stir into dry ingredients.  Let dough refrigerate for about 20 minutes to stiffen.  Using a melon baller scoop, roll dough into balls and then roll into cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Place on baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before eating!

If you are considering going paleo, Amazon has The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Foods You Were Designed to Eat on sale for $10.17.  While I am not 100% consistant with the Paleo lifestyle I do feel better overall when I cut out dairy and wheat from my diet.
