Oatmeal Banana Cookies: 3 Ingredients

Whenever I plan to buy a cookie at my job, one cookie can turn into two, and two can turn into four. The chocolate chip cookies are soo addicting and delicious but if I wanted to make healthier choices, I had to say goodbye to those for good and to be honest, I noticed I have more money in my wallet now since I haven’t brought any. Hahaha.


I’ve noticed the more healthy choices I make and having healthier snacks, the less I crave sugary snacks. I may have a treat every once in a while but I am mainly allowing my self to indulge in a healthy dessert instead.


A bowl of oatmeal is my favorite thing to enjoy in the morning for breakfast because it’s so fulfilling, helps with digestions, and is very healthy for you. I am also a fan of oatmeal cookies and found a recipe with only two ingredients: ½ cup of oats and 2 bananas which is so satisfying and taste delicious.


All you need to do is smash the bananas with a fork in a bowl, mix the oats into the bananas, make three round circles of the mixture on a pan and place them in the oven for 15 minutes. It’s a simple recipe and doesn’t take long to create this delicious snack, but if you want to kick it up a notch, read my ingredients below on how I make my yummy Cacao Oatmeal Banana Cookies.


Cacao Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:


2 Bananas

½ Quaker® Oats Quick 1 Minute Oats (or whatever oatmeal brand you love)

1 tsp of Cacao Powder

Optional: 1 tsp of Cinnamon


Directions:


While the oven preheats at 350, smash the bananas into a bowl with a fork and then mix all the ingredients into the bowl of bananas. Place the cookies mixture on a non-stick pan in three large separate circles and place inside the oven for 15 minutes. Serve after the cookies cool down for at least ten to twenty minutes.

Why You Should Drink Butter Coffee: Bulletproof Coffee Edition

A few years ago, I heard a bunch of celebrities talk about why they love the Bulletproof coffee so much and of course, I became so curious that I had to do further research. I came across the video, How to Make Bulletproof® Coffee, where the founder, Dave Asprey, shared why he wanted to create something that gave people the energy boost they needed in the morning.


You may be thinking, what the heck is the Bulletproof coffee? Well, the answer is quite simple: coffee, butter, and oil. Sounds kinda weird but I must say, I never thought I’d try a cup of butter coffee and say, mmm with every sip. It’s creamy, delicious, and frothy just like a latte that you can find at a coffee shop, only better.


Dave Asprey, Bulletproof founder was traveling in Nepal where he first took his first sip of yak-butter tea and he was intrigued by the energy boost it gave him. After sharing his powerful experience with others, it became a popular new beverage that is known to kick your normal cravings in the b-hind, give you some extra mental focus during the day and burn fat. It’s a big deal.

How to Make Butter Coffee


Ingredients


1 tbsp of grass-fed butter (I use Fourth & Heart Grass-Fed Vanilla Bean Ghee)

1 tsp of MCT oil (and/or coconut oil)

1 serving of a freshly brewed coffee (I use Bulletproof coffee grinds)

1 tsp of Chai Spiced Honey (optional)

Add a tiny bit of cinnamon (optional)


Directions


Add all ingredients into a blender and blend it up for a few seconds until smooth. You don’t have to add creamer or anything because the butter makes it creamy and smooth. Let me know in the comments if you adore butter coffee too.


Love always,

Princess Hiyah Akanqi


Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist but I wanted to share a bit of what I've learned through some research. Although butter coffee works for many people (including myself) it doesn't mean that it will work for you. I recommend that you do further research before you try it out yourself.
