energy ingredients

The ingredients we have selected for these cookies bring us a lot of energy thanks to their high vegetable protein content.

Coconut

Grated coconut

Coconut is an excellent fruit and a very healthy alternative to flour for making all kinds of desserts.

  • It offers vitamins, minerals and trace elements,  and we can consume coconut water, pulp and even prepare a delicious vegetable drink.
  • It also contains a good amount of very healthy fats that not only do not make you fat, but also activate the metabolism so that we burn more calories.

Coconut oil is increasingly popular, as unlike most oils, it does not oxidize when subjected to high temperatures.

If you can’t get coconut oil, olive oil is the second most recommended option in this case.

Oat

Oats are one of the healthiest and most nutritious cereals that exist, so it cannot be missing from our diet.

  • It has a high fiber content that favors the feeling of satiety and improves intestinal transit.
  • In addition, it is rich in mucilage, components that balance the digestive tract.
  • A serving of oats a day helps us have more energy and regulates the nervous system. Thus, it provides vitality and relaxes us in times of stress, anxiety or nervousness.
  • Raw oats are difficult for many people to digest, so these super-nutritious biscuits are an ideal way to consume them without making us look bad or sour.

seeds

Seeds are the strong point of this recipe, as they are small superfoods very rich in nutrients that cannot be lacking in a balanced diet.

We recommend choosing the following:

  • Flaxseed and chia: Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, they favor intestinal function, regulate cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increase the feeling of satiety.
  • Sesame: Rich in calcium.
  • Fennel: Fennel, in addition to having digestive properties, provides a touch of sweet and delicious flavor to these cookies.
