Keto Snickerdoodles

Sometimes it can be difficult to recreate a traditional recipe with the intention of transforming it into a low carb recipe. That is not the case with these Keto Snickerdoodles. 

When creating this low carb recipe, I only had to make a few simple changes to comply with the low carb lifestyle. I switched out the sugar for a low carb sugar substitute and did the same with the flours.

Instead of using all-purpose flour, I made these keto snickerdoodles with a mix of almond flour and coconut flour. 

While my traditional snickerdoodles recipe doesn’t include gelatin, I needed something to hold this recipe together and wanted an alternative to xanthan gum. 

What’s Wrong with using Xanthan Gum? 

For some of us, xanthan gum is a helpful ingredient in a wide variety of our recipes, it can especially be helpful when cooking low carb.

Unfortunately, it can cause gastrointestinal issues for some in the form of an upset stomach, bloating, and excess gas.

This isn’t the case for everyone and some of us would never even notice when a recipe uses xanthan gum but I love to have an alternative to avoid any issues.

Another great reason for this recipe to not include xanthan gum is because it can be hard to follow a new diet with all new ingredients you are not used to using. 

Having an alternative like unflavored gelatin may be easier to find in your grocery store and it can make starting a low carb diet a lot easier for those of us who struggle to find xanthan gum. 

Can I Use a Different Low Carb Sweetener? 

The options for low carb sweeteners seem to grow each day. There are many different low carb sweeteners available that are interchangeable in most low carb recipes. 

Some of my favorites to use are stevia and monk fruit because they are easy to find, pretty reasonably priced, and easy to work with when making low carb recipes. 

How Many Cookies Does this Keto Snickerdoodles Recipe Yield? 

This recipe for keto snickerdoodles can yield a different amount each time, it really depends on the size of the cookies. I usually make my cookies on the small side in order to have more and they expand a bit in the oven. 

When following this Keto Snickerdoodles Recipe exactly, making 1-inch dough balls, you can make 18 cookies.

I've never had snickerdoodles but they sound delicious. Interesting to hear about xanthum gum.
