Snickerdoodles With a Hint of Ginger

This is based on Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles (it's an excellent recipe; you should try it). These cookies came out soft with a touch of ginger. If you don't have oat flour use a food processor or blender to pulverize oatmeal.

Brown Butter-Cassava Flour Snickerdoodles

Rating: 4.67 stars

These grain-free cassava flour cookies are made with coconut sugar, so they're much healthier than the traditional version, slightly less sweet, and full of cinnamon-y goodness. Because cassava flour is more starchy, expect a bit drier cookie and be sure to let them cool completely on the cookie sheet.
