  • I think the carrot breakfast cookies sound delicious. I’ve been trying to stay away from flour products and to just eat the whole grains but I may have to come up with a creative idea for making some of these so it will be easier in the morning. Not truly a morning person…I don’t mind getting up, just don’t want to function.
