These cookies are slightly sweet, peanut-like flavour, and have a flaky texture similar to a sugar cookie. They are also high in calcium, which is important for most people – especially women, in particular pregnant and nursing women. And this low-sugar, nutritious cookie can be a tasty treat for kids to enjoy too!
