SOFT & FLUFFY PALEO SNICKERDOODLE COOKIES

(Please note that this recipe is sponsored by Wild Harvest, but all opinions are honest and genuine!)

I have been on a mission to create a paleo and Specific Carbohydrate Diet friendly snickerdoodle cookie forever now, but kept getting scared off because I knew I couldn’t use cream of tartar. And what’s a snickerdoodle without the cream of tartar? Well, if you didn’t know the cream of tartar is what gives snickerdoodle cookies that almost sour bite to them that makes them just different enough from plain-old sugar cookies. Without the cream of tartar, it’s essentially a sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon (also who knew snickerdoodles don’t actually have any cinnamon IN them!? Yup just ON them). But I knew making paleo snickerdoodle cookies would have to happen one day and I’m so excited that day finally came.

I knew I needed something else to take over the cream of tartar’s function of creating a tiny bit of a “sourness” in this recipe – enter apple cider vinegar. I was nervous to experiment with this but let me tell you… it worked PERFECTLY. These paleo snickerdoodle cookies taste like the real deal ya’ll (even my parents think so)!!

I used Wild Harvest organic coconut flour, honey, organic cinnamon and organic nutmeg in this recipe and loved that I could feel good about the products I was using! If you saw my recent Thai curry soup recipe, you know how much I love Wild Harvest as a brand.

They’re committed to providing options free from over 140 undesirable ingredients found in many other products on the market today. Ya’ll know I’m ALL about keeping “weird stuff” out of my recipes so I love being able to partner with a company that likes keeping the same “weird stuff” out of their products as well.

Plus, I love that their products are AFFORDABLE. Having to test so many recipes can add up, and I find it difficult at times to continually be buying bags of coconut and almond flour. But, with Wild Harvest, I was able to feel good about buying these ingredients to make these fluffy clouds of goodness. Make sure to check out their store locator to see where you can find your own Wild Harvest products!

These paleo snickerdoodle cookies are the perfect healthy treat to bring to any upcoming New Year’s parties. Or, just keep them all for yourself… trust me. You probably won’t want to share.
