Yield 27 cookies

Cinnamon Almond Snowball Cookies are soft on the inside with a warm, almost gooey, cinnamon center. Gluten-free, dairy-free and only six ingredients! 

Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Prepare a cookie sheet with nonstick spray or cover in a layer of parchment.

Mix together the almond flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In another bowl, beat the egg white until they stiffen. You should get peaks when you pull the beaters out.

Fold the almond mixture into the egg whites and add the extract. Once incorporated it will make a fairly firm dough.

Roll the mixture into balls around 10g each. You should get about 27 cookies.

Bake for about 12 minutes. The cookie balls should be firm to the touch but with soft, almost gooey insides.

Let the cookies completely cool. Then add the powdered sugar to a plate and roll the cookie balls around it until covered.

Serve!

Notes

  • Store these in an airtight container, they will harden after a few days. 
  • These can be frozen for later use! 
  • These aren't super light, per se, but they have a pretty good balance of macros. I like trying to make things that have at least some nutritional value and these are cookies are basically sweetened almonds. Plus, they are super fun for the holidays.
