What I love about these cookies:
- they are sweet, thanks to the dates
- they are gut friendly, easy to digest
- do not get bloated from them
- low in calories
- contain all 100% natural real whole food ingredients
- easy to make – no bake!
- can add honey if I want them sweeter
- to make them fuller, I can add raisins
- I love cinnamon!
These cookies are healthy! They are packed with nutrients, including vitamin A, potassium, fiber, iron, calcium, sodium, magnesium, protein, healthy fats and carbs. Enjoy them guilt free. I recommend two a day. 🙂

Don’t know what GAPS is? It stands for Gut And Psychology Syndrome.
“The GAPS Protocol is broken into three parts specifically designed to heal and seal the gut lining, rebalance the immune system, and restore the optimal bacterial ecosystem within the gastrointestinal tract. The Nutritional protocol restricts all grains, commercial dairy, starchy vegetables and all processed/refined carbohydrates while focusing on easily digestible and nutrient dense foods.” ~ International Nutrition
