One weekend, my hubby was in the mood for dairy-free snickerdoodle cookies.

Something I had never craved or had the inkling to create allergy-friendly.

After all, where’s the chocolate?!

But I’m so glad he tinkered in the kitchen that day…

because these have become a well loved treat with our food allergy friends.

He baked the cookies.

I snapped the photo.

And the rest is history.

Aren’t they beautiful?!

These were the perfect texture, too.

A little crunchy on the outside.

Soft chewy on the inside.

On several occasions, a house full of guests have gobbled these up…

from toddlers to teens to adults.

Definitely approved by those without food allergies! Big win.

In addition, thanks so much for all the pins and shares on this one.

We are so glad you love them!


To make these snickerdoodle cookies dairy-free, we used dairy-free butter. 

These cookies require no milk or milk substitute, so that’s easy! 

And to make these egg-free, we used flax eggs instead of eggs.

This recipe is so good, however, that anyone would love them.

Feel free to use real butter or eggs if you aren’t allergic. 

The recipe is very easy for all.

Oven 350

Makes 3 Dozen


2 and 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dairy-free butter softened
2 cups sugar
2 flax eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup sugar for coating
1 tablespoon cinnamon for coating

No Cream of Tarter Snickerdoodles


Set oven to 350 degrees.

Mix 2 and 3/4 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl or stand mixer (affiliate), cream together 1 c. soft dairy-free butter and 2 c. sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in 2 eggs or 2 flax eggs one at a time.

Then add 2 tsp. vanilla.

Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until blended.

Combine the 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a small bowl.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets (affiliate) and flatten slightly with a spatula.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned at the edges.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Hope you enjoy these dairy-free and egg-free snickerdoodle cookies as much as we do!

We don't need to avoid egg, can we use an egg instead of the flax egg replacement? Thanks!!

Hi, can these be frozen? And are they soft or hard cookies? Making for my one year old.

I would think so, Dominique!

Hi! What is your ratio for the flax eggs? 1 Tbsp flax meal to 3 Tbsp water? I've seen different measurements. Wasn't sure what worked best. Thank you!

That's exactly what we do, Angela. :)

How many cookies does this recipe make? Thanks!

Jamie Kaufmann

Three dozen for a normal size cookie, Melanie. :) Good question!

Can I use agave syrup instead of sugar? And if so, what’s the amount of agave I would use? Also what amount of gluten free flour would be the equivalent to the all purpose you used? Is it the same? One for one? Thank you! I have about 30 food allergies so I survive off of recipes like this but I have to do some substitutions :)

For the agave syrup, I believe its 30% for what youd need to replace the sugar. So, about 2/3 of a cup of agave. Add most of it, then if the dough looks dry add the rest.

Hi Mayen, people have let us know that cup for cup gluten-free flours have worked in many of our recipes. I'm not real sure on the agave. I'm sure it would work but not sure in what measurement. The coating of cinnamon and sugar may be tricky, would you use stevia...as that needs to be a powdery coating. :) Hope they work for you!
