Keto Snickerdoodle Ingredient Substitutions
When it comes to keto baking, I understand that everyone has different ingredients on hand or different preferences in keto flours and sweeteners. Keto ingredients can be expensive so you may not want to invest in more odd ball keto foods if you don’t have to. I have laid out some substitutions that you can use in this recipe for mini keto snickerdoodle cookie cereal.
My favorite keto flours to use when baking is a combination of almond flour and coconut flour. Using the combination creates a very close resemblance to flour when baking. The texture, color and density are very similar to all-purpose flour.
If you have nut allergy and can’t use almond flour, try using sunflower seed flour to make this mini keto snickerdoodle cookie cereal. Sunflower seed flour is nut free and it has a similar consistency to almond flour. It will measure cup for cup to almond flour so it is a direct substitute for almond flour in this keto cookie cereal recipe.
Cream of Tartar
Cream of tartar is added to snickerdoodle cookies to give that slight tangy flavor signature of the buttery, cinnamon cookie. In this recipe for mini keto snickerdoodle cereal, the cream of tartar is added only for taste. It will help the cookies rise slightly too.
The cream of tartar is not an essential ingredient in this keto cookie recipe, so if you don’t have it, then leave it out.
Favorite Keto Approved Milks
There are sevreal keto approved milks you can use as a replacement for regular milk for your keto cereal. Regular milk is higher in carbohydrates so it’s generally not recommended. Even whole milk has 12 grams of net carbs in one cup.
Some more keto friendly options to use for this keto cookie cereal are heavy cream and nut milks. The nut milks I recommend are macadamia nut milk, almond milk, hemp milk and coconut milk. Make sure they are all unsweetened. The sweetened varieties are often filled with sugar as a sweetener.
My favorite nut milk is macadamia nut milk. It is zero carbs per serving and has 6 grams of fat per cup.
Mini Keto Cookie Cereal Storage
The cookie dough for these mini snickerdoodles can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer. Freezing keto cookie dough is a great way to meal prep. You can make up a large batch of sugar free snickerdoodle dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in a freezer safe ziploc bag. The cookie dough can stay frozen for up to 4-5 months.
When you want to bake your mini keto snickerdoodles, take the cookie dough out of the freezer and let sit in the refrigerator for a several hours or on the counter to thaw out. Don’t let the dough get too soft, it should hard but able to pitch off chunks of dough when you go to bake the keto snickerdoodle cereal on a baking tray.
