My acupuncturist told me no more cold smoothies in winter – “not seasonal!” I began having porridge but my boyfriend finds it plan & is bad for his diabetes to add syrups. With bananas going brown & a bag of porridge oats I experimented with baking them together. Voila! Simple 2 step process just remember to set a timer for the oven!
Time : 25 mins
With over 400%* manganese from oats, bananas & cinnamon these cookies will help keep the dizziness & nausea away. The 100% magnesium from the oats & cacao will help keep insomnia at bay combined with the 20-75% of B-complex vitamins found in all the ingredients but especially the oats & bananas. Plus over 50% iron helps keep away the fatigue feeling. If you add in dried fruits it increases the magnesium & vitamin E to support fighting the insomnia.
