Healthy Snickerdoodle Cookies

Eat the cookie.

Yes I did say I am a health and fitness coach that specializes in nutrition. 
But eat the cookie. :)

I see no reason why you can't be healthy and have your cookies too. These cookies are loaded with protein and nutrients. EVERY ingredient counts to make them a great addition to your healthy lifestyle. They are naturally gluten free and grain free, and naturally free from refined sugar. YES of course there are calories. A whopping 90 calories per cookie. BUT they are calories that count! Making it an easy swap. Instead of a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter, have these instead. 

You are welcome. 

These contain:

Almond flour is high in protein, manganese, vitamin E and monounsaturated fats, low in carbohydrates, and contains fiber. ALL good things!

Raw Honey is rich in Antioxidants, it can help lower Blood Pressure, improve Cholesterol. and can lower Triglycerides.

Pure maple syrup contains numerous Antioxidants, helps fight Inflammatory and Neurodegenerative Diseases, helps protect against Cancer, has many vitamins and minerals.

Cinnamon is loaded with Antioxidants, has anti-Inflammatory properties, helps reduce the risk of heart disease, helps improve sensitivity to insulin, and lowers blood sugar levels.

Pink Himalayan Salt helps balance electrolytes, increases hydration, helps balance PH so is great for keeping in an alkaline state, helps prevent muscle cramping, strengthens bones, lowers blood pressure and more. 

Eggs  a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk. Eggs are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.

So dig in and enjoy yourself some yummy healthy snickerdoodles!
