Flax Fiber Cookies

Gluten Free Cookies | 0 comments

One day my husband and I were at the grocery store and bought a package of “Happy Colon” cookies – they were marketed as being high fiber and promoting regularity. My husband really liked them for the health benefits. Looking at the ingredients, I thought “I can make something like this.” This is what I came up with – and my husband eats one every day. If you need it, they are a good way to get some extra fiber in your diet, and they taste great too! They are gluten, grain and dairy free.
