Momov2boys Cocoa Flax Cookies

Yesterday evening, Carmella and I felt like having an after dinner snack. Carm suggested that we look at Linda’s Low Carb Menus & Recipes to find a yummy after dinner nosh that didn‘t breach our low-carb diet commitment. I ended up finding Momov2boys Cocoa Flax Cookies which were a breeze to make and took under 15 minutes from prep to table. The cookies not only looked good but they tasted quite nice. They weren’t overly sweet and had a nutty undertone. I hope you enjoy them like we did.

I found that freezing the cookies for several hours gave them an even better taste.
