Looking for a cookie that is delicious, nutritious AND safe for those with diabetes ?  These cranberry walnut cookies are low in carbohydrate (about 3 grams carbohydrate per cookie), high in protein (whey protein powder and eggs), high in healthy fat ( almond meal) and super- antioxidants (cranberries).

A low carb, gluten free, wheat free, no sugar added cookie recipe  is perfect for those with diabetes and choose to lower their carbohydrate intake. The cranberries give these cookies a bite and the walnuts provide a perfect crunch. Two of these cookies are considered neutral on The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle program.  For other low carbers, each cookie contains 3 grams net carb.
