Keto Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies
Pumpkin season has commenced! This is such a wonderful time of the year. I love walking through the market and seeing all of the fun, creative, and scrumptious pumpkin-flavored products. My favorite thing to do though is to create healthy, seasonal recipes at home where I get that amazing homemade taste, with healthier ingredients! These Keto Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies will surely be your favorite Fall cookie! They sure are mine!
What Makes These Cookies Keto?
Instead of using refined sugar and flour in the batter, this recipe calls for almond flour, coconut flour, and a keto-friendly sweetener like erythritol or monk fruit. These zero-carb, zero-calorie sweeteners have a low glycemic index, so you don’t experience the sugar spike and crash of regular sugar. These healthy cookies are a guilt-free treat the whole family will enjoy! (Seriously, the kids will not know the difference!).
Note: Please do not substitute the flour ingredients in this recipe. Coconut flour is quite dense and these cookies will not turn out right if too much is used.
Can I Freeze the Cookie Dough?
Yes! In fact, there are two ways to freeze these keto cookies. I recommend making a double (or triple!) batch so you can have some on hand throughout the season!
Dough: After you make the dough and shape the cookies, you can freeze the uncooked dough balls to bake later. Store on parchment paper in an airtight container.
Baked Cookies: If you want to bake all the cookies, and then freeze some, I recommend waiting for them to cool completely first. Then, put the cookies in an airtight container for when you’re ready to eat them! I recommend letting them thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving, but they are also delicious right out of the freezer!
