“The midnight raid on the kitchen is satisfied with this healthy, tasty cookie.” Pat R.
A Note from Dr. B.
You can experiment with flaxseed meal to increase your consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids. In recent studies, 1 gram, or about 1 teaspoon, of ground flaxseed per day was shown to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. You’ll get that amount by eating two of these cookies a day.
