Reduce Sugar Cravings, Try Yakon Syrup Tea Biscuits

As someone from New England, when I think seasonal change I think baking.

I grew up making all kind of yummy cookies and cakes, and the smell of cinnamon to me = heaven. Fast forward 20 years. I am insulin resistant and avoid refined sugar and gluten. What’s a girl who loves her cookies and chai to do? Here is my current solution.

These are my Nourish biscuits made with Yakon syrup, coconut flour and almond flour. They are filling but still sweet and pastry like – making them perfect for tea time!
