Banana Walnut Protein Cookies

Banana Walnut Protein Cookies
Serves: 14 cookies
These are as easy as bliss balls and taste just like mini crisp bites of banana bread. The great thing about them is that they are gluten-free, vegan, rich in protein and healthy satiating fats. Don't be afraid of banana's - especially not when consumed with all the other healthy ingredients in these cookies. They contain natural sugar (but you will only receive a small amount if you stick to 1-2 small cookies!) as well as potassium, vitamin B 6 and fibre. Keeping these low sugar I choose to add xylitol or stevia to sweeten them up a touch. These are the perfect bites to help keep blood sugar stable and satisfy a mid-morning sweet craving. Serving suggestion: a slice of banana and/or dollop of nut butter, yum!
