How much sweetener to use?

Classic Snickerdoodle cookies recipe calls for 3/4 cup sugar, but sweeteners are often sweeter than sugar.

I love to use erythritol because it gives the best taste and texture. You can also use Xylitol or Monk Fruit Sweetener.

Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies are incredibly soft coated in cinnamon. These gluten-free cookies are thick and bake perfectly every time. During the holiday months, these cookies are a family favorite.

What is the cream of tartar?

Cream of tartar is a key ingredient in a great snickerdoodle cookies recipe. It’s a byproduct of wine production that gives the cookies their tangy classic flavor. Cream of tartar also helps the cookies to become chewy and soft.

What can I use instead of cream of tartar?

You can substitute cream of tartar with one teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar.

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients: coconut flour, almond flour, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, erythritol, and cream cheese until well combined for about 1-2 minutes. Mix in the egg, and vanilla extract until well incorporated. Scrape down that sides of the bowl if needed.
  • Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until well combined.
  • Don’t over mix. Cover with plastic foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the erythritol and cinnamon.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Each cookie dough weighted about 1 oz.
  • Roll all of the keto snickerdoodle cookies into the cinnamon erythritol mixture. Generously coat each cookie ball.
  • Flatten each keto cookie with the back of a measuring cup, as these cookies don't spread while baking.
  • Transfer cookies to the baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes, until just very lightly golden. Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy!

  1. Hi Ioana,
    This recipe has me confused, as it asks for Erythritol in step #1 and # 2 yet the ingredients list only calls for sweetner to be mixed in with the dry ingredients and a small amount for the topping.
    Also, this is just an alert for you but I do t know why the oven needs to be preheated first thing when the dough has to cool in the fridge for half an hour. Just sayin’.
    I’m still going to try this recipe and hope it is as yummy as it sounds. Fingers crossed.

      The oven needs to be preheated and hot, otherwise, the dough will melt waiting for the oven to come to temperature, and the cookies will bake flat.

    1. I’m not sure about the texture since the coconut flour absorbs so much liquid. I’ll test these cookies using only coconut flour and post a new recipe. It’s going on my list!

  2. 5 stars
    This is such a wonderful recipe. My go-to dessert! Lemon zest mixed with the sweetener, and no cinnamon, is a nice topping, too!
