[ Edited ]

Not exactly a cookie or a treat.  Well, it'll be a treat for us since I usually don't eat or make breakfast anymore.  I'm thinking of making this for Christmas morning.

Notes
Nutrition: this recipe makes 9 generous pieces. There are 4 NET carbs per serving.
 
Substitutions: swap out the cinnamon for pumpkin pie spice for a different flavor. 
 
Brown Sugar Sweetener: to easily make your own simply mix 1 tsp of molasses into 1 cup of a 1:1 white sugar sweetener.
 
Prep Time: you can prepare the bread up to one day in advance to save yourself time later. 
 
To Reheat: place the casserole on a microwave-safe plate and heat up for 30 seconds - 1 minute or until hot. It heats quickly, and you don’t want to warm it too long, or it will dry out. Heat in the oven at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until hot. 
 
To Freeze: cover the casserole with plastic wrap after it has cooled. Then put it in the fridge for up to 2 months. Defrost in the fridge and heat up once thawed. 
 
Notes on Sweeteners: 

To sub in Swerve or Lakanto Monk Fruit use 1.5 times the amount of sweetener called for. 
 
To sub in Pyure or Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet use half the amount of sweetener called for.
 
Substitutions will work in most recipes. They may not work in candies, such as caramel.
