How to Make Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies
Start with adding the almond flour, oat fiber, gelatin, baking powder, xanthan gum and cinnamon to a mixing bowl.
Then whisk until everything is well combined. Keep whisking until you've gotten out any lumps. Set aside and grab another mixing bowl.
Into your other bowl, add in the butter, allulose and Brown Swerve.
Mix using a hand mixer until it's has a smooth texture. This step is important in baking low carb cookies. You want to make sure the butter completely coats the sweetener.
Next you will add in the egg and vanilla extract. Continue mixing for another minute or so, until the mixture is consistent in color and there are no lumps.
Combine your dry and wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Cover the bowl of dough with some plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes. Refrigerating the dough will make it easier to scoop and hold it's shape.
After the dough has chilled, preheat your oven to 350F.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the Swerve granular and cinnamon and set aside.
Using a cookie scooper, scoop out the dough and using your hands, roll it into a ball. Then drop it into the cinnamon mixture and roll it around till all sides are well coated.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spaced a few inches apart (because they will spread a little). Gently press the tops with your fingers, to flatten them out a little.
I like mine on the thinner side, but if you prefer them thicker, don't flatten them out quite as much.
Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes or until the tops just start to turn golden. If you make larger cookies, be sure to cook them a little longer, maybe 13-15 minutes instead.
Almond flour cookies are slightly more delicate when warm, so allow to cool completely before serving.
These will store in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. But lets be honest, between the taste and texture of these sweet and chewy cookies, there is no way they will make it that long!
If you're curious how many Keto Snickerdoodle cookies this recipe makes, I was able to get 20 cookies out of the batch, and each serving is two cookies.
If you love the chewy texture of cookies, try these Keto Ginger Cookies, they are also soft and chewy!
Tips on Making the Best Chewy Keto Cookies
As I mentioned earlier, there are several ingredients that are responsible for making these cookies have great texture. I highly recommend sticking to the recipe as best as you can.
Best Flour to use for Low Carb Cookies
For the flour, you'll want to use a combination of super fine almond flour and oat fiber. The oat fiber really improves the texture, making them more like traditional cookies.
By using a low carb flour, you're still able to enjoy a tasty Keto sweet snack without the guilt.
How to Make Keto Cookies Chewy
There are 3 ingredients in these cookies that contribute to the wonderful chewy texture- Beef Gelatin Powder, Allulose and Xanthan Gum. They all work really well together and I wouldn't recommend substituting any of them, honestly.
Wholesome Yum's Besti Powdered Allulose is my absolute favorite allulose to use! It has perfect texture and far exceeds anything else I've ever tried. Use code: KCC10 to save 10%.
If you absolutely must substitute the allulose, you can use Swerve Confectioners or powdered erythritol, but you may lose part of the chewy texture.
If you can't find xanthan gum, you can omit it, but again, you may lose a little of the chewiness. The beef gelatin powder can be substituted with any Keto friendly gelatin.
What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.

That should work, but I can't say for sure how they might turn out since I've not tried it before.
