what are raisins and their health benefits…

Raisins start as grapes, and then they are dried into raisins. The drying process concentrates the nutrients making raisins nutrient dens. By drying grapes, they also become sweeter, and this is why many children love raisins.

Raisins are a good source of iron, copper, potassium and vitamin B6. A quarter of cup raisins contains 108 calories, 1 gram of protein, and 1 gram of fiber. The healthiness of raisins makes them a healthier snack when compared to other sweets. And the great thing is that most children love raisins.

Why is this oatmeal raisin cookie healthy?

 

oatmeal raisin cookie, gluten-free

 

As parents, we want our children to have nutritionally balanced meals to keep them healthy with a strong immune system. And starting with more nutritious snacks that children love makes everything so much easier when feeding our kids.

This cookie is made with oatmeal, a naturally gluten-free grain packed with protein and fiber, healthy raisins, coconut oil, eggs.  

As a sweetener, I used coconut sugar. Of course, we know sugar is sugar. However, coconut sugar contains the soluble fiber inulin, which is linked to a lower risk of blood sugar spikes and also has traces of minerals.

Although I created this gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookie recipe for kids, grown-ups love this cookie with coffee or as an energy boost in their busy lives.

Because this oatmeal and raisin cookie is packed with protein, it is satisfying and will give you lasting energy. Enjoy!
