Banana Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Eating during a flare can be tough. Focusing on low-residue foods yet feeling full and satisfied while getting the proper amount of nutrients is definitely a balancing act. And, adding refined sugar to your diet during this time can only add to the inflammation already running rampant in your body. So when your sweet tooth kicks into action, finding the perfect snack can be daunting.

These banana oatmeal raisin cookies are perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth without the added refined sugar and they are full of GI-friendly ingredients. Also, thanks to the oats and bananas, they contain soluble fiber which helps in bulking and keeping your stools formed and regular. Enjoy these cookies as a snack, for breakfast, or when you feel your energy dipping mid-afternoon. They're perfect for eating on the go, and they're kid-friendly, too.  I call this a win-win!
