Flaxseed Breakfast Cookies
Not a fan of big breakfasts or you just don't have the time to make a big breakfast? Give these flaxseed breakfast cookies a try. They are crunchy, lightly sweetened and have a touch of cinnamon.
The best part is they are large cookies but only have 1/2 a net carb per cookie (not including the sweeteners that don't spike glucose levels) and are grain free, gluten free and dairy free!
I made a number of changes to this recipe. https://www.diabetesdaily.com/forum/low-carb-diet/52232-flaxseed-breakfast-cookies/
