  1. These look amazing, I can’t wait to try them.

  2. We make some paleo snickerdoodles similar to this: http://www.thepaleomom.com/2011/11/recipe-paleo-snickerdoodles.html. They’re our go-to cookie. So delicious! Cookies + cinnamon = WIN

  3. I must say i’ve been on paleo for only two weeks now! and I’m craving cookies, and I normally don’t eat cookies, so a friend told me about this site and about the cinnamon cookies recipe so I tried it out, and let me just say that the cookies were THEBOMB.COM!! They came out soooo good I didn’t expect that to happen. Soo try this recipe out they taste like ginger bread cookies! :-)

    where can i buy almond meal

    • Hey Elizabeth, most grocery stores sell it. But you can also purchase it online. Most times you can get a better deal. Theres a Shop link at the top of my blog where you can get it too :)

  5. macros anyone

  6. Oh my goodness! These are pure delight! I’ve already made two batches of the lil darlings! Yum Yum Yum! Thank you for this recipe – ’tis the holidays and I wanted something nice too…..and now I have it. Thanks again!

  7. Thanks so very much for sharing these…found the recipe on pinterest. We follow SCD/GAPS, so we were able to sub butter for the coconut oil (either would’ve been ok for us, butter is what we had). They turned out perfectly and everyone enjoyed these! =) I allowed the batter to chill for 15 minutes or so (most coconut flour recipes need at least that long to sit before baking) and scooped and sprinkled instead of rolling and dipping. ;) I was able to get 24 small-scoop cookies out of a single batch. Just wonderful. ;)
