Cookie Recipes Without Flour or Sugar

Is there anything better than a soft, warm baked goods in the morning alongside a hot beverage? As much as I love this idea, I’ve also found that super sweet breakfasts never get the day off to the right start. If I start my day with a blast of sugar and flour, I find myself on a mood and blood sugar roller coaster, chasing my hunger and energy levels all day. These sugar and flour free breakfast cookies changed all that.

    I cannot find the recipe for the morning glory muffins

    • Katie Gates

      That’s because I posted the morning glory muffins this morning, and this round-up is an older post. Thanks for the reminder, I’ll add it! In the future, you can always find the latest recipes on my home page. 🙂
