As always, they are grain free, gluten free, dairy free, and sweetened with raw honey. Cookies made with flour and sugar spike your blood sugar, feed yeast and bad bacteria in the body, stores as fat, and makes you crave more and more. These do not do any of that nonsense. In fact, this cookie is filled with metabolism boosting healthy fats and wonderful vitamins and minerals that will satisfy you and your sweet tooth.

Notes:

    • You can add cacao/cocoa if you want to make a chocolate version.
    • You can also take the dough, roll it into balls and freeze them for a raw cookie dough version that also tastes amazing! Try both out when making the batter!

This is a fantastic recipe the whole family will love and enjoy.  It uses a fair amount of natural sweeteners in the form of honey.  It is best to get your honey from local sources as the bees take up local pollen to produce the honey and this helps prime your immune system to handle the local elements more effectively.

Anytime you consume more sugar  I would recommend adding in cinnamon to improve blood sugar sensitivity.  Additionally, coconut oil helps improve blood sugar regulation and reduces the inflammatory index of the cookies.
