Gluten Free Diary Free Snickerdoodle Recipe by

It’s been a well-known fact in my family that Snickerdoodles are my dad’s all time favorite cookie. So for Father’s Day this year, I decided to try to create my own Gluten Free Dairy Free Snickerdoodle Recipe to bring to our family BBQ. Let’s just say the first batch didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. They tasted good, but just weren’t quite right. So I gave it another try and tweaked a few things and my-oh-my I hit the jackpot! I love it when that happens.

And here is my full disclosure, these are really really really addicting. You can’t just have one :)

    Hi, just found this recipe on Pinterest. What would be the egg substitute for the egg replacer + water? 1 or 2 eggs. Eggs are one of the few things my family is not sensitive to. Thank you for this recipe.

      Hi Sue – The amount of Egg Replacer in the recipe is equivalent to 2 eggs. I have personally never made the cookies with whole eggs before, but I would imagine that it would probably work. I’ve used egg replacer interchangeably with whole eggs in many recipes and it generally works out great. Hope that helps!

    Hi! i plan on making this in a few days time for my friend whos lactose intolerant :) but is xanthan gum really needed? is there a substitute for it ? btw can i use normal eggs in this and normal all purpose flour?

    • says

      Xanthan gum is only necessary if you are making them gluten-free. I have personally never made these with normal eggs and regular all-purpose flour but it should work just fine.

    I was in a hurry so I dumped the batter into a greased 8×8 pan and poured the cinnamon and sugar on top and baked at 350 for 25 minutes. Ta-dah! The perfect bars. Thanks for a great recipe!
