Honey & Cinnamon Lupin Cookie

Honey and Cinnamon Lupin Cookie

These delicious cookies substitute 30% of the wheat flour for lupin flour, creating a sweet treat with a hidden nutritional benefit. Lupin is high in dietary fiber (30%) and protein (close to 40%), low in fat (6%), and contains only minimal starch and therefore a very low Glycemic Index (GI). Lupin Flour is very easy to incorporate in your range of baked goods.
