What Makes This No-Bake Cookie Healthy?
Raspberries are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and polyphenol antioxidants. Polyphenol antioxidants have been shown to promote brain function, focus, and attention and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia. High antioxidant consumption has been linked to reduced anxiety and depression as well as improved general mood. Polyphenols may also provide protection against cancer, and in animal studies, raspberries reduced esophageal tumor incidence by 54% and decreased the number of tumors by 62%.
Oats are not only whole grain foods and a great source of sustained energy but also a prebiotic. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in our GI tract and promote a healthy gut. Oats are a good source of B vitamins, fiber, selenium, and zinc. B vitamins are important for mood regulation and needed to prevent fatigue. Zinc provides immune support; fiber helps you feel full and satisfied, and Selenium is not only an essential mineral but also an antioxidant too.
Almond butter contains many nutrients like Vitamin E and calcium as well as healthy monounsaturated fats and ALA Omega-3s. Almond butter can also help you feel full because it’s a good source of fiber and protein.
