The holiday season brings with it visions of sugarplums, traditions, sites, smells….and COOKIES! Cookies are usually high in carbohydrate grams ( from the sugar and flour) and gluten (wheat flour).
Don’t worry about carbs or gluten with these Snickerdoodles! By replacing wheat and sugar with almond flour and the sugar substitutes Truvia or Splenda, these cookies are gluten- free and less than 2 grams carbohydrate per cookie.
Better still, for those following The Metabolism Miracle or The Diabetes Miracle, these cookies are NEUTRAL!!!! Keep to a maximum of 3 cookies/day and enjoy!
