Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Almond Butter Snickerdoodles

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



Just like your favorite snickerdoodle cookies, these are soft, chewy and full of cinnamon and sugar flavor with the addition of almond butter!


  • Dough
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) organic salted butter, softened

  • 113 grams (1/2 cup) organic cane sugar

  • 113 grams (1/2 cup) packed organic dark brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

  • 2 large organic eggs

  • 142 grams (1/2 cup) organic almond butter

  • 255 grams (2 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • Topping
  • 28 grams (2 tablespoons) organic cane sugar

  • 1 teaspoon organic cinnamon


  • To make the dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, cane sugar, dark brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter. Add the eggs and almond butter and mix for just 3 to 4 rotations, do not over mix.
  • In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. Add to the butter mixture and mix on low until a smooth dough forms.
  • To make the topping: In a small bowl, mix together the cane sugar and cinnamon.
  • Using your hands, form the dough into 24 balls and roll them in the topping mixture. Place on the prepared cookie sheets and flatten slightly so they are about 2-inches in diameter. Space at least 1-inch apart.
  • Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Allow to cool completely on the cookie sheets.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.


  • Gluten Free – Replace the all purpose flour with 269 grams (1 3/4 cups) organic gluten free flour blend.
  • High Altitude – Bake at 375°F for 8 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
