Lower Carb Snickerdoodles

I was so excited when I made almond cookies that satisfied my tastebuds.  I had been missing those in my low carb lifestyle!  Then, my husband mentioned his favorite cookie of ALL cookies is a snickerdoodle.  So I set out to make them for him.  It took a few tries, and we found his favorite!

Low Carb Snickerdoodles

A low carb cinnamon flavored cookie.  My husband loves these cookies. I have wonderful childhood memories of my mother making these. I now make these low carb versions that we love and want to share.

  • 2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup Truvia white sugar blend
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum (can use 1 egg instead)
  • 1/2 cup Butter softened
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract


  • 1/8 cup Truvia
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Mix all ingredients with a mixer.  (I actually use my hands with food safe gloves on as I like how it feels gooshing through my fingers as it mixes.)

  3. Evenly divide mixture to make 18 cookies.

  4. Roll each piece into balls.

  5. Mix topping of cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.

  6. Roll the cookie balls in the cinnamon mixture covering it evenly

  7. Flatten each dough ball with a fork making a criss-cross pattern. (The dough balls will not spread and so you have to flatten them.)

  8. Bake for 25 minutes.

  9. Let cool thoroughly.  They will be crumbly until cooled.

  10. ENJOY!

Recipe Notes

  • I made the cookies in the picture a little small and ended up with 22 cookies. 
  • These cookies brown a little better with Truvia than they do with other sugar alternatives, but not much.
  • I like Xanthan Gum better than using an egg.  That is just me.  Either works fine to keep cookie from crumbling so much without them.
  • This recipe yields cookies at 2 carbs per cookie.  Compare that to say one of the better almond cookies on the market at 14 carbs per cookie!!!!  
  • This is another win in the battle!

Calories 240 kcal


  • 1 loaf Keto Bread
  • 1 quart Half and Half
  • 2 tbsp Butter softened
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Almond Extract
  • 3/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend
  • 1 cup Almonds, sliced


  1. Break up the slices of bread and place in a large bowl. (It's even better if they are a little stale.)

  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs together. Add Half and Half to the eggs and mix together.

  3. Pour the egg mixture over the bread and mix it in. Cover and let stand in the refrigerator for an hour for the bread to soak up the liquid. The longer, the better. Overnight is best..

  4. Preheat oven at 325 degrees.

  5. Coat a 9×13 baking dish with butter.

  6. Stir extract and Truvia into bread mixture. (You could do this when you do the egg mixture.)

  7. fold in sliced almonds.

  8. Spread mixture into the baking dish.

  9. Bake 50 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.

Recipe Notes

  • So, one serving would be  6 net carbs. (I use an automatic calculator and it should be correct, but always do your own calculations!  These things aren’t infallible.)
  • If you don’t like almond flavoring, use Vanilla.  You can even add other flavorings like coconut extract, etc.
  • You can add sugar free chocolate, coconut, other nuts, etc. to the recipe, just be mindful of the  carb count changes that creates.  
  • You can use any number of keto or light breads, just be mindful of the  carb count changes that creates.
  • We like the almond bread pudding plain, but there are any number of sauces or sugar free syrups or powdered “sugars” that you could put over top of this, if desired.
