Banana Blender Cookies
Sugar lowers the immune system by paralyzing white blood cells and also depletes minerals like calcium and magnesium while being metabolized by your body. Too much sugar can also lead to weight gain and a host of other undesirable effects. But sugary treats are also comfort foods for many people, and you may find that you crave a sweet, comforting cookie now and then on your fertility journey.
These yummy banana cookies are so healthy you can enjoy them as a snack or even a light breakfast (not just for dessert!). With plenty of fiber to remove toxins from your body and lower cholesterol, and cinnamon to balance blood sugar levels, I promise these cookies will provide both comfort and nourishment! There is some confusion about whether or not oats are gluten-free, so allow me to explain: oats are naturally gluten-free, however, most oats are processed in facilities that also process gluten-containing foods. So, cross-contamination with gluten makes most oats unsafe for those with celiac disease. Certified gluten-free oats (produced in a facility that does not process any gluten) are available in such circumstances.
