Are you a fan of snickerdoodle cookies?
When I was a little kid, I referred to snickerdoodle cookies as Leftover Cookies. Or, Those Cookies without Chocolate Chips. I know, all very appealing & mouthwatering associations. Lol.
It’s just, every time someone brought out a batch of snickerdoodle cookies, or suggested baking a batch of snickerdoodle cookies, there’d be extensive talk about how there was leftover sugar cookie dough and everyone thought, why not?
So, I mean, snickerdoodle cookies were more like Why Not Cookies, as opposed to my much-sought-after chocolate chip cookies–which were never an afterthought.
As an adult, I’ve matured and learned that cookies need not have chocolate chips in them to be good (okay, I’m still 50% on this). And, more importantly, cookies need not be the prime baking goal aka can be made from leftover cookie dough to be YUMMY (I’m totally 100% on this).
Especially since I spend 60+ hours a week baking cookies, dreaming up cookies, eating them (totally counts), and getting all the crazy/delicious ideas that I can use on all of that yummy leftover cookie dough. 😉
And since y’all have been asking for me to share a snickerdoodle cookies recipe for ages, I thought it’d be high time to share an easy no bake cookie version of these lovelies.

Best Tools for Vegan No Bake Snickerdoodle Cookies (GF)
Here are my favorite tools for making these no bake gluten free snickerdoodle cookies:
- Classic Granulated Monkfruit Sweetener – A sugar-free alternative to cane sugar. Tastes so good and is guilt-free. Made from plants! I like using this flavor of low-carb sweetener, but I sometimes like to switch things up and use the golden sweetener. 🙂
- Coconut Flour – a delightfully unique, grain-free alternative to flour. Just one ingredient: coconuts and it absorbs wet ingredients in a recipe like magic!
- Medium Cookie Scoop – my favorite cookie scoop of all time. I’ve purchased and thoroughly used cookie scoops more than I’d like to count–and I’ve seen so many of them fail. This the winner!
- Cashew Butter – I seriously love using cashew butter to create that special cookie flavor. There’s just something about it that kind of tastes like cookie dough when combined with a sweetener and vanilla.
- Almond Butter – For those of you who aren’t fans of cashews, swap the cashew butter out for almond butter!

I’m allergic to cashews so would I be able to use organic peanut butter as a replacement?
Hi Beth! Yep, that should work fine. Hope you enjoy!
Hi, Demeter! I made these cookies to bring to a meeting, and my friends LOVED them!! I didn’t have cashew butter, so, I used raw almond butter instead. I mixed in extra cinnamon and powdered ginger. (I’m into spices.) What a great idea to use the monkfruit sweetener instead of granulated sugar!! There’s absolutely zero sense of deprivation here! These delicious no-bake cookies reminded me of an old-fashioned Japanese sweet treat made with starch sugar syrup and toasted soy bean powder. Thank you very much for this FANTASTIC no-bake recipe, Demeter! I hope it starts to cool down where you are soon!
Woohoo! I’m so happy to hear that they were such a hit Chiemi! 😊 Love the spice addition too. And that’s so cool that it reminded you of that traditional treat! Thank you for sharing these kind words. And it’s definitely started cooling in these parts of the woods. Hope the weather is treating you well where you are! 😄
Glad to hear it’s started cooling where you are, Demeter! My area is kind of similar to yours; it has become more pleasant here (Brooklyn, NY). Read your new blog yesterday. Hope you and Erik decide on a perfect place for both of you. AZ and NV sound pretty extreme (to me) but may be perfect for all-or-nothing-type folks. CA is milder and pleasant, but ticks and bedbugs love that type of climate, too. NM is very unique; I saw the most spectacular double rainbow in Albuquerque! The sun can be harsh there. I don’t know about ticks, but they got fire ants in the area. Personally, I’d rather get bitten by fire ants than by ticks! 😀 Thank you very much again for your delicious recipes, Demeter!
Aww rival you Chiemi! 😊 We’re definitely taking out time to consider the best place for us. After years of living in snowy climates, we’re ready for some year-round sunnier weather! lol Wow I’ll bet that rainbow was amazing! And I’ll definitely need to keep those fire ants in mind 😂
Hi, Demeter! 🙂 Your comment reminded me of a conversation that I (over)heard at the Minneapolis Airport. The Minneapolis locals were discussing their vacation in Hawaii! My friend in southern Spain told me that many (wealthy) Russians and Norwegians get married in southern Spain. Yes, the rainbow was truly amazing! I was standing there, admiring and taking photos from multiple angles. I even pointed it out to a local pedestrian. But the locals were so nonchalant about it!! Getting bitten by fire ants wasn’t bad. I thought it was the intense sun burning my lower legs! (Luckily, I’m not allergic to their venom.) It was my own fault for standing on the entrance of their nest without realizing! They just wanted me to move away, and they weren’t vengeful. 😀
Hi Chiemi! 🙂 I bet they had a good time. Lol! So interesting about the weddings. 🙂
