Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

I love cookies that can also be eaten for breakfast! These gluten free goodies are loaded with nutrition from the eggs to provide protein and the almonds to provide calcium, iron and heart healthy fat! Maple sugar is a less processed form of sugar than white cane sugar so even the decadence here is diet friendly! I also love that two of these cookies come in at under 150 calories which makes them a perfect snack with a glass of almond milk at any time of the day!
