No Sugar = Better Health
One great way to improve your health quickly is to reduce or eliminate all added sugar from your diet. A diet high in refined sugar has been associated with many chronic health conditions including obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimers, and chronic inflammation.
Our Sugarless Breakfast Cookies are sweetened naturally with mashed bananas and dried fruit. Made with whole plant-based foods, only 2 or 3 of these will keep you satiated until your next meal. Double the recipe and freeze what you don’t eat now. Then you have a go-to snack whenever you crave a sugary treat. Enjoy them for breakfast with some fresh fruit and dairy-free yogurt.
