These cookie bars are soft, tender, and full of cinnamon snickerdoodle flavor. It’s an old-fashioned recipe that is not only low in carbs but also gluten-free.

The cookies are made with a combination of almond flour and coconut flour for the perfect texture.

How To Make Keto Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars

Making these keto-friendly snickerdoodle cookie bars is straightforward, with minimal prep time.

Similar to our keto snickerdoodle cookies, I used a combination of almond and coconut flour. It’s something I have found that works really well when trying to duplicate the texture that only gluten provides. 

The secret to making a genuine snickerdoodle is that it needs to use a combination of cream of tartar and baking soda as the leavening agent instead of baking powder.

Because this not only gives it its unique tangy flavor but also ensures the perfect tender crumb. 

You’ll start by preheating the oven to 350°F and greasing an 8×8-inch pan with butter.

Then in a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the softened butter, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and the sugar substitute.

To the cookie dough, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.

Then spread the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

For the cinnamon sweetener topping, in a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute and cinnamon. Then sprinkle the mixture on top of the bars.

Bake the cookie bars for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool the cookie bars completely in the pan on a baking rack before slicing them into bars.

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze them for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container.

Note that the full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the post. The following are just the ingredients and materials you’ll need so that you are armed and ready to bake.

Sugar Substitute Options

When it comes to choosing which sugar substitute to use for these low-carb snickerdoodles, I have several options for you to pick from.  

My number one choice is Lakanto Monk Fruit because the texture and flavor are what I have found to be the closest to real sugar and because the flavor fools your taste buds like nothing else I’ve found in the market. 

Having said that, I’m also partial to the brand Swerve, which is an erythritol blend. Similar to Lakanto, it uses sugar alcohol and has a 0% impact on blood sugar.

Personally, I don’t like using stevia because I am sensitive to the aftertaste. But if that’s not the case for you, you could certainly use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for this cookie recipe.

However, if you go this route, you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s much sweeter.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

Our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting, we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision, we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. 

I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith. 

We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.

Be sure to request our FREE Jesus and Keto E-Book (First 7 Days). We hope it blesses you.

I enjoyed making this recipe, but there were issues with the cook time. It took an hour and 10 minutes to cook. I took it out at 33 minutes and it was still jiggling in the middle. I had to cover it with aluminum foil after the first 20 minutes as the topping was burning. My finished recipe did not look like the picture you have in your recipe.

Hi Glenda, I am sorry to hear that you had some issues with the baking time. I am working with a new oven so perhaps that may influence your baking time. I recommend you pick up an inexpensive oven thermometer to ensure your oven is reaching the correct time.
