Dairy Free Snickerdoodles

These are THE BEST snickerdoodle cookies… I promise. These dairy free snickerdoodles are made with coconut oil, but they are still so soft, chewy, and delicious. I included these in the Christmas cookie boxes that I gifted to my loved ones, but these are great year round!!

I LOVE baking with coconut oil. I have never liked vegan butter because of the strange after-taste. Refined coconut oil, however, has no funny taste, and it creates the perfect texture!! This is why you have never seen vegan butter in my recipes…

The recipe I used for these snickerdoodles is from Cook Nourish Bliss. The recipe can be found here, but I will also put the recipe below! These are INCREDIBLE, and I promise all of your loved ones will also love them (even if they do eat dairy)!!
