Keto Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies Ingredients
For this recipe, you’ll need:
- butter, softened (or vegan butter or coconut oil melted)
- golden Lakanto sweetener (keto, paleo friendly)

Perfect Soft Baked Cookie Tips
- Be sure to mix the wet and dry ingredients separately before combining so that the ingredients are well dispersed.
- You can add the topping before or after baking.
- Use a cookie scoop to place rounded balls evenly spaced on cookie sheet, and then flatten by hand and top with more chocolate chips.
- Do no over bake! Baking time may depend on your oven, so be sure to eyeball it by watching for slightly browned edges. You do not want to dry out the cookies.
- You’ll want the cookies to fully cool before consuming so that they don’t crumble or fall apart. I like to place mine on a cookie rack to cool, sometimes 15 minutes in the fridge will help as well. Use a spatula to transfer the cookies to and from the rack.
How to Store Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
You’ll want to keep these fresh by storing in an air-tight container on the counter or in the fridge. You can warm them up if desired.
These taste delicious all week long! I really love dipping them in my coffee, or snacking throughout the week when cravings hit and the kids also really enjoyed them, even our one-year-old.
Can I Freeze Snickerdoodle Cookies?
Absolutely you can. Try to keep them separated in the freezer by individually wrapping them so that they are easier to remove and thaw out or to be reheated in the microwave.
Either freeze in an airtight container or wrap in wax paper, parchment paper, or foil.
Happy Fall! Are you as excited as I am?!
