I almost named these “Sneaker-doodles” because every time I turned around one of my girls was sneaking a cookie out of the container. These paleo snickerdoodle cookies are chewy, soft, and they lend just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar.
Egg Free Option
If you would like a paleo and vegan snickerdoodle simply replace the one egg with a flaxegg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 2.5 tablespoons water, let it sit fo r10 minutes). When the paleo snickerdoodle recipe calls for the egg, simply replace it with your pre-mixed flaxegg.

If that is your favorite kind of Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle then you are going to love this grain-free snickerdoodle recipe. Because this recipe uses a combination of tapioca, coconut flour, and cashew butter, this recipe is free from all grains.
How to make a Paleo Snickerdoodle
- Preheat you oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk tapioca starch, coconut flour, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon until combined. Add in cashew butter, and egg, and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
- In a small mixing bowl, mix the remaining 3 tablespoons coconut sugar with the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for coating.
- Sugar coat your hands and roll dough into 1″ balls. Roll dough balls in the cinnamon sugar until coated on all sides.
- Place on the parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Repeat until all dough is used.
- Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Don not over-bake, they will stiffen as they cool.
