Banana / Applesauce Healthy Cookies

Banana & Pineapple cookies

Found this information on http://www.healthyeating.org/Healthy-Eating/All-Star-Foods/Grains/Article-Viewer/Article/208/Health-Benefits-of-Oatmeal.aspx

They have  great info and I find extremely helpful and enjoy sharing as I find.

Oats were first cultivated in 1,000 BC in central Europe. Ancient Greeks and Romans scoffed at oats as “barbarian” food and only fed it to their animals. It was oat eating Germanic Tribes that later defeated the Romans, resulting in the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

Oats were first brought to America in the early 1600’s by European explorers, such as Captain Bartholomew Gosnold, who planted them off the coast of Massachusetts. Scottish and Dutch immigrants first used them in traditional porridges, puddings, and baked goods. Currently, Vermont has the highest per capita oatmeal consumption in the United States, where it is often consumed with another local favorite, maple syrup.

How to Make Oatmeal

  • Make oatmeal with milk instead of water to increase the protein and calcium.
  • Ramp up the healthfulness by stirring in some yogurt with live active cultures and reap the health benefits of probioitcs.
  • Add fresh fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, bananas, or apples to increase the fiber, vitamins and minerals, as well as add anti-oxidant rich phytochemicals. No fresh fruit? Add dried fruit such as raisins or cranberries.
  • Add nuts such as walnuts, pecans, olive oil, and sunflower seeds to add heart healthy mono or poly-unsaturated fatty acids and protein. The added fat will also help you stay full even longer.
  • For added sweetness without the calories, consider adding stevia or another low calorie sugar substitute.

Enjoy the health benefits of oatmeal and prepare oatmeal recipes.
