Apple Spice Cookies- Phase 1

This recipe is pretty easy to whip up and who doesn't want cookies for breakfast?

The recipe makes 8 standard servings. Make the cookies however large you want, and divide the total number by 8. That is how many per serving you will have.

You will need to add a fruit to this for FMD. The apple is not enough for a full serving. 
**Pro Tip: if using Granny Smith or other tart cooking apple, use the full amount of xylitol. If you use a sweeter apple like Gala, cut the amount down to 1 cup or so.

If you are on maintenance, use almond milk and 1 whole egg instead of the egg whites. You can also add walnuts or pecans. 

I hope you try these- they are delicious!
