Unbelievably Soft + Chewy Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

We’re making Tigerdoodles. A tigerdoodle is similar to a snickerdoodle, minus the butter, bleached flour, and refined sugar. This cookie sweetly brings together aromatic cinnamon and rich dates, along with a healthy dose of fiber from the tigernut flour. So satisfying, you’ll only need one to meet those mid-morning or mid-evening snack attacks.
Recipe makes 16 cookies.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put the dry ingredients into a food processor. Then, add coconut oil, applesauce and vanilla. Process on high until the dough becomes a unified ball, for approximately one minute.
Put cinnamon and date sugar on a plate and lightly mix. Scoop a tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on a cookie sheet and slightly flatten with a flat-bottomed glass. Continue to form cookies with remaining dough.
Bake for 8 minutes, and then let the cookies rest for 5 minutes. Eat immediately or store cookies in an airtight container for up to three days.

About Tigernut Flour

Sounds like a nut, but tiger nuts are actually a tuber – a root vegetable found in the Mediterranean and Northern Africa. In addition to being gluten and nut free, this slightly sweet flour offers a blast of fiber, iron, potassium, protein, plus other essential elements.
As a surprising bonus, this flour supports a healthy immune system and digestion through its stellar levels of resistant starch that promotes prebiotic growth.
