Oatmeal: lowers cholesterol, boosts the immune system, lowers risk of diabetes, stabilizes blood sugar levels, contains avenanthramides (an antioxidant that protects the heart), doesn’t affect gluten-sensitive people as much (despite containing gluten), and prevents breast cancer

Raisins: increases energy, helps with digestion, contains oleanolic acid which protects against cavities, increases bone health, decreases body acidity, treats infection, protects eyes, stimulates sexuality, treats anemia, and prevents cancer.

Cinnamon: has antifungal, antibacterial and antiparasitic properties, is anti-inflammatory, helps people with Type-2 diabetes control blood sugar levels, may lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and fatty acids in the blood, is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron and calcium, and improves memory and performance of certain tasks

Banana: benefits your heart and nerves due to the high dose of potassium, increases the performance of kidneys and bones, acts as a mood enhancer or mild sedative, is one f the highest sources of naturally available vitamin B6, and can help keep you “regular”


Bon Appetit!

    Curious as to why you believe nuts are bad for you. Nuts are very heart-healthy, and can lower the LDL (bad) cholesterol level in our blood. Also, eating nuts may reduce your risk of developing blood clots that can cause a fatal heart attack, according to the Mayo Clinic. Nuts also appear to improve the health of the lining of your arteries.

    Since the macronutrients in these cookies are nearly 100% carbohydrate, I’d say balancing them out with a little fat and protein is a good idea.
