Treats can be healthy as well as taste good. There is no need for artificial and highly refined ingredients when they can be health promoting instead. Here are a few that help make this recipe so amazing!
Pumpkins are a wonderful source of fiber which helps with weight loss. They also contain Vitamin A which aids eye health. Their Vitamin C can help boost the immune system and they may even help prevent cancer!
Oats are also a fantastic source of fiber, have anti-cancerous properties and help with blood sugar.
Cinnamon contains both fiber and calcium which can protect against heart disease and help with colon health. Just the scent of cinnamon alone can boost brain function. It’s also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial.
Whole Wheat is also very high in fiber which means it helps keep blood sugar levels stable longer. Whole wheat can also help with weight control, reduce chronic inflammation, lower risk of type 2 diabetes, support mental health, brain function and digestive health. (source)
