This recipe is perfect when you are craving sweet cookies but don’t have a lot of time to bake them and want something healthy. Oats have been proven to lower cholesterol in the digestive tract, which keeps the cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Also, they are high in fiber, which is good for a person’s overall health as well as their digestive health. Plus, oats help relieve stress and are essential for energy production, because they are rich in B vitamins. Bananas are rich in fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B. This means they aid digestion, weight loss, are good for muscle cramps, improve mood, regulate blood sugar, and much more. Plus, this recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-free and with no sugar added. And it will make the house smell AMAZING!
