Where did this week go? Tomorrow’s already Friday! I thought the week would drag on but it’s going to fast and can’t wait to enjoy this sunny mid 50 degree weather, woohoo! Except for that wind that…

So, I have made theses cookies awhile back and wasn’t too sure and the recipe but I think this one works better. Just note, this cookies is not supposed to be super decadent, it’s supposed to be a good alternative for breakfast or a healthy sweet treat.

They are filling with fiber and protein, plus they are much less in sugar than a regular cookie. Minimal ingredients for an easy treat. The trick to baking these is to not make them too long.

Ingredient highlights:

  • Almond flour – A good source of fiber and protein. Other nutrient sources include calcium, iron and potassium
  • Agave nectar – A lower glycemic index food.
  • Whey protein – Absorbed easily and may help aid in weight and preserve lean muscle.
