Cookie Gone Vegan

Vegetarian Cookies help lose weight the healthy way. It’s been tried and tested. Cookies have been known as one of the top food sources leading to obesity in children (adults as well) because of its too much sugar component. But here’s one that is really healthy, it doesn’t use processed sugar, rather the all natural sweetness that bananas give.

To help interest my baby in healthy eating, I introduced her to this recipe that I learned from a vegetarian friend. It’s a delicious snack that is so good because it uses banana only in lieu of the starchy flour, uses fiber rich oats as binder, plus raisins which is another source of fiber. What’s most important about this recipe is that it uses all-natural sugar and flavor coming from fresh banana.

It is also quick and very easy to make, and can be made using even a regular oven toaster.
