    Hello - these look great! Is a serving size one cookie?

    Can you make these cookies without the protein powder?

    I made these cookies for Mothers Day. I did omit the protein powder but added psyllium powder. They were wonderful. Taste like they came from a bakery. Very easy to make. My non-keto Mom loved them. Thanks for all of the great recipes.
