Thumbprint almond cookies (low-carb high-protein)

As I recently faced some low blood sugar problems, I’ve been trying to research how to tweak my diet so I can avoid sugar highs and lows. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m trying very hard. One of the main things I found was that refined sugars are to be avoided and that fat and protein help stabilize blood sugar levels. And that’s just what I’m after. Never having cookies again, however, that’s not what I’m after. So I’m trying to create a perfect cookie recipe for both my taste buds and my blood sugar levels.

Here’s my first shot at exactly doing that. If you happen to have any hypoglycemic experience and tips, please please please hit me up. I could use all help in figuring this sh*t out.

I hope you enjoy the recipe!
