Gluten-Free Snowball Cookies

Gluten-Free Snowball Cookies - just 6 ingredients with just the right amount of sweet, you won't believe they are vegan, too! |


  • 1 cup buttery spread, packed solid in measuring cup (I like Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Set oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Using an electric mixer, combine buttery spread and powdered sugar until smooth.
  3. Add vanilla and water and continue mixing. The color of the batter should turn a slight brownish color.
  4. Gradually pour in almond flour, stirring by hand, if necessary.
  5. Add pecans.
  6. Roll into balls and line on an ungreased baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until “delicately brown.”
  8. Reshape, if necessary, after removing from oven.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.


You’ll notice in these photos we don’t add a lot of powdered sugar to our cookies. You can, however, add as much or as little powdered sugar as you like!
