Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I love the sweet chewiness of a coconut macaroon but the sugar content in the commercial products was always too much for my tastes. Until I made these...They are divine and healthy! And guess what? they are super easy to make gluten free!

Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie, no grains

Hi everyone,   This is a super easy, no grain cookie that turns out soft and yummy!!  The cookies raise and get bigger so a small spoonful will make a nice sized cookie.  I like to add flax for the extra Omega 3's but it's optional and the cookies are great without it. Hope you enjoy my Gluten Free Low Glycemic Peanut Butter Cookie!   big hugs,  Ali
