What are SUPERFOODS?
Superfoods are healthy foods that are high in nutritional density. So what Superfoods are in this recipe?!
Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
Dried Blueberries: high vitamin C & antioxidants
Flax Seed: cancer fighting properties, high in omega 3-fatty acids, vitamin B, fiber and antioxidants
Hemp Seed: high in protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins
Old Fashioned Rolled Oats: They are a power house for many reasons, but one big one being that they are a huge source of beta glucan, which is a soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol
Eggs: So eggs get a bad rep for cholestoral, when actually it is the opposite! Studies show that eggs actually improve the cholesterol profile. They can raise HDL cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol. Then help increase the size of LDL particles, which actually are suppose to lower the risk of heart disease.
Cinnamon: help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol control
Banana: high in fiber and heart healthy fats
Makes 10 cookies
2/3 cup mashed ripe banana ( about 1 1/2 bananas)

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats ( gluten free if needed)

In medium microwave safe bowl melt coconut oil. 30 second increments until melted. Let cool and start to work on dry ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl add in the old fashioned rolled oats, oat flour, salt, cinnamon, dried blueberries, dried apricots, flax seed, hemp seed. Then whisk together until fully combined and set aside.
Now that the coconut oil has cooled off a bit, add in the egg, maple syrup, vanilla extract, mashed banana and whisk until fully combined, no oil separation.
