Chewy Vegan Snickerdoodles (Gluten Free) by @eatwithclarity ?

• 2/3 cup butter or refined coconut oil
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1/4 cup light brown sugar
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup non-dairy milk

• 1 cup fine blanched almond flour
• 1 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1 tsp cream of tartar*

For rolling:?
• 1/4 cup light brown sugar
• 2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
2. Add the solid coconut oil to a large mixing bowl and microwave for 15-20 seconds or until soft. You don’t want it completely melted, but if you press on it with your finger, it should leave a dent. You can also sub for non-dairy butter and the same rules apply. 
3. Once softened, add in the granulated sugar and light brown sugar and cream together using an electric mixer. 
4. Beat in the remaining wet ingredients until creamy. 
5. In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
6. Add the dry to the wet and beat with an electric mixer just for a few seconds to incorporate all ingredients, then use a wooden spoon to mix. Careful not to over mix, once no clumps of flour remain, stop mixing. The batter should be pretty thick at this point.
7. Let the batter sit in the fridge for 15 minutes. This will ensure the cookies don’t spread too much while cooking. If you leave them in the fridge for longer, they will taste exactly the same, but won’t get the same cracks on the tops, so about 15 minutes is ideal. 
8. Use a cookie scoop (I used the medium sized one) and roll into even balls. Combine the 1/4 cup light brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and roll each cookie in the mixture.
9. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 9-12 minutes. 10 1/2 minutes is ideal in my oven. They should look really soft when they come out of the oven, but will continue cooking as they cool (and will continue to flatten a bit), so avoid leaving them in for longer if you want them nice and soft. 
10. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack using a spatula. Enjoy!?
