Sugar Free Low Carb Snickerdoodles

Sugar Free Low Carb Snickerdoodles

1 1/2 c fine almond flour
3 T  whey protein powder (I use Isopure)
3 T good quality coconut flour (brand and quality counts!)
1/2 c real butter (1 stick)
3/4 c Ideal natural sweetener
3/4 t liquid sweetener of your choice (drop style)
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t cream of tartar
To roll and top your cookies:  1-2 tablespoons natural granulated sweetener of your choice (like Ideal, Truvia, etc.) mixed with about 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix your butter, sweeteners, eggs and vanilla.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Let it set for about 4-5 minutes as the coconut flour in the dough will thicken it up.  Use a spatula to scrape down the sides.  If it's not holding together and is too 'wet' add about 1/2 cup more almond flour, a tablespoon of coconut flour, or chill your dough for 30 minutes to an hour as this will make it easier to work with.  Make 1 inch round balls (a small cookie dough scoop works great) and roll in a mixture of granulated sugar substitute mixed with some ground cinnamon.  Place on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet, press down gently just a bit to flatten, and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until they are golden brown.

*Note:  if they don't all get eaten right away, overnight you might notice they get soft instead of keeping the crisp outside and chewy center.  This is typical of almond flour cookies.  I like to serve them right away and then put the remaining cookies into any container for that night and the next day, preheat the oven and re-bake them for about 8 minutes at 350 again.  This will get them back to the crisp cookie with a chewy inside like regular 'wheat flour' cookies have and they tend to stay this way after a second bake.  If you like them soft however, the second bake isn't needed.
