Surprise Cookies

Because these cookies are made without refined flour, they are much healthier than other recipes since they have much more fiber and a good amount of protein. However, since they are sweetened, it is recommended that diabetics consume them in very moderate amounts and as part of a program to eliminate insulin resistance.
