Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Flaxseed “cookies”

2 Comments

Sadly, I don’t have a picture for you 😦

I know, I know, I’m a horrible blogger. Long story. Hopefully I’ll have one up to go along with this recipe soon!

I say these are “cookies” because they taste sweet but don’t have sugar in them and, well, I eat them at all hours of the day πŸ˜€

So, on to the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup flaxseeds

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 cup applesauce

6 tbs or 1/3 cup coconut oil

1 mashed banana

2 eggs

pinch of salt

splash of cinnamon and nutmeg (to your taste)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all dry ingredients together. Wisk eggs and add in then add all the rest of the ingredients. Spray cookie sheet with non stick spray or line with parchment paper. Take tablespoon size balls of dough and flatten onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool. If you are in a humid or hot environment, I advise keeping these in the fridge.

As I mentioned, I eat these at all hours of the day. These cookies are fantastic. They are great because they are a sweet treat without the sugar. They are super healthy (good fats, protein, minimal carbs) and don’t promote inflammation.

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
