I love cookies and often refer to myself as the cookie monster because I can gobble up a lot of cookies!
I love experimenting with recipes to make them healthier and that is exactly what I did with this recipe. I did a lot of experimenting to get to this recipe. I’m not mad because I ate a lot of cookies in the process. :)
This is a cookie I would eat for breakfast. I would even (and have) let me kids eat them for breakfast.
If you don’t have nutmeg or coriander you can absolutely make these cookies and have them still be delicious. I don’t believe in going out and buying special ingredients you may never use again. Although I do encourage you to try coriander, it’s one of my favorite spices.
If almond flour and coconut flour sound foreign to you then don’t buy them. If you don’t have almond flour or coconut flour just use 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour and only 1 egg.
