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.
- 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!
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fantastic recipe the whole family will love and enjoy. Megan originally was using honey in this recipe, but I modified it to add in the keto maple syrup which is an all natural sweetener that uses monk fruit and erythritol and has no impact on our blood sugar.
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.
