Peanut Butter & Flax Cookies

This is quite possibly the easiest cookie you'll ever make. Add that to the fact that they're low glycemic and high fiber, and you'll wonder why you shouldn't eat one or two a day.

I loved these cookies and ended up eating the two I took home for breakfast the next day.

I'm really sorry to learn about your diagnosis, but I think that this is really wonderful and proactive way to deal with it. Once you get a slightly deeper archive, I'd love to post about it on Slashfood (if and when that's cool with you).

Marusla - I'd love for you to post on Slashfood about The Sugar. Juggling two blogs is hard! This one requires signigicantly more work due to the nutritional calculations, but I'm trying to build up an decent archive, please keep reading.

I was sorry to hear this at the potluck, but relieved that you're still baking steady.

You should try the Earth Balance flax peanut butter (Whole Foods has it in creamy and crunchy) for this, it's currently my favorite nut butter. I'm obsessed with flax and my boyfriend found a flaxseed in his bed that we had tracked in there somehow.

Gross. Delicious. Both. XO.
