Flat Tummy Post-Workout Snack
Healthy Banana-Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies
We are always searching for ways on how to get a flat tummy. A good workout routine, balanced diet and a monthly detox are key, but you also need to consider what you eat after working out. It should be something that provides energy, protein and a good source of fibre to keep your metabolism running and help you feel full. You don’t want to through away all that hard work by eating the wrong thing.
These banana-oat chocolate chip cookies are a great alternative to protein bars and other processed snacks that are packed with sugars and starchy ingredients - not a good choice if you’re trying to reduce bloating.
These cookies taste amazing and it feels more like you are having a treat than a healthy snack! You would never guess there is no sugar, flour or butter added, and only 40 to 50 calories per cookie.
- 2-3 large old bananas
- 2 cups raw old fashioned oats
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- ½ cup 60% cacao chocolate chips (you can get creative and use sliced raw almonds, cranberries or raisins)
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (180 Celsius). In a bowl smash bananas. Mix in salt and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Add in oats and chocolate chips and stir until combined.
- Place dough onto a greased tray (coconut oil is a great option) by the spoonful. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
