There's been a request for my Peanut Brownie recipe on Instagram. I can never turn down a healthy recipe request.
My husband has been studying hard these last few weeks. Only eight to go.... All to say, he needs a snack filled with nutrient-dense healthy fats.
These cookies are made with almond flour, coconut oil, and egg. All great fats to fuel the mind and body. They have a very low amount of sweetener in them, meaning that won't cause a rush of insulin and will maintain balanced blood sugar levels.
Wonderful treats for the whole family - especially children's birthday parties!
