Baking too much lately? In spite of all the ingredients you put together, baked items tend to be on the higher side of calories and are therefore not categorised as a healthy snack. But what if we tell you, you can have some tasty cookies that are also a key to good health? Yes, you read that right!

You can indulge in some flavourful cookies without worrying about carbs. While there are many ways to make cookies out of healthier grains, here is a simple recipe that might interest you immensely given that it could also balance out your hormones especially if you are suffering from PCOS or endometriosis, explained nutritionist Rashi Chowdhary in an Instagram post.

Take a look.

Gosh Gosh Gosh! for its nutritional profile.. these taste too good to be true 😍 If you have PCOS endometriosis or any other hormonal condition, getting enough fat in your diet is KEY.. cause your mother of all hormones “Pregnenolone” is a steroid hormone which means it’s made from cholesterol! Through this the synthesis and balance of all other hormones like estrogen progesterone cortisol DHEA etc is possible ❤️❤️❤️ So go on… enjoy this cookie cake every morning if you like. Its hot enough protein too. I don’t care about quantities so much.. I just use very rough measurements…if I did care about being specific, maybe these would be yummier may! But I’ll leave that for the baker in you to decide! Here’s my fluke recipe: 1 whole egg 1 cup almond butter Little less than 1/2 cup xylitol 70% dark Chocolate chips I like them burnt.. cause they taste like magic with coffee.. but you decide how you like it! You can substitute xylitol with 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup. If you do, please add 1/2 cup of rice flour or oats cause honey or maple syrup will change the texture of the cookies? You might need to refrigerate depending on the consistency. You can also add raisins or cranberries instead of chocolate chips. But dark chocolate for breakfast hits different 😉 Try it and let me know what you think! Let me know what variation you did and how it turned out! Enjoy baking 🍪❤ #rcrecipe
