RECIPE: Paleo Snickerdoodles

I've been doing darned good for quite a while eating extremely low carb while following my Paleo Lifestyle plan, but today ... Today I craved something warm, chewy and a little sweet. I remember seeing a recipe I pinned on Pinterest ... Paleo Snickerdoodles. I tracked it back to where it was originally pinned from ... UrbanposerI had to make a couple of minor adjustments, and they are DELICIOUS!! I was afraid Conrad and I would eat them all before they ever cooled down! Yes, they are THAT GOOD!

2 cups Almond Meal (The recipe calls for blanched, fine ground almond flour)
1/4 t. Sea Salt (Slightly less, actually)
1/4 t. Baking Soda
5 tablespoons Coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup Organic honey
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
For Coating:
2 tablespoons Palm Sugar (The recipe suggested Raw Coconut Crystals)
2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all the dry ingredients, then mix in the wet ingredients.
3. Using a spoon, take 1″ round balls of dough and roll them in coating.
4. Place on a prepared baking sheet, and flatten. I used my fingers, but you could use the bottom of a cup. (I used a Silpat for even baking and no sticking.)
5. Bake at 350 Degrees for 11 minutes. (The recipe suggested 8-9 minutes, but mine weren't quite done enough at 9 minutes. Must have been the almond meal that made the difference.)  Allow to cool on pan, they will firm up to the perfect texture when cooled.
