These keto snickerdoodle cookies are made in a way similar to the original recipe – except for some ingredient swaps.
Instead of sugar, we use keto-friendly sweetener.
We also swap out wheat flour for almond flour. But these turn out to be the best swaps.
Almond flour gives s bit of nuttiness and flakiness wheat flour doesn’t have.
Keto sweetener can be any variety you like just as long as it is granular.
Once you taste these healthier, keto-friendly snickerdoodles, they’d instantly become your favorite.
