If you want to stay fueled for a busy day, you’re going to need the perfect snacks to give you energy. That’s where Maxine’s Heavenly cookies come in.
Let’s talk about what makes a good snack.
You need something filling that will fuel your body for the day and satiate cravings. Maxine’s Heavenly cookies are made with the best ingredients to get your body what it needs. First, they’re oat-based. The best carbs for your health are those which are those which are eaten as close to nature as possible. With oats, that’s what you get. Plus, the prebiotic fiber in oats helps to fuel your body’s probiotics and research has even linked it to a type of fiber that has been known to reduce cholesterol.
Our oats are gluten free, which has a whole host of benefits, and using oats makes our cookies more dense. Rather than sitting down and eating a whole pile of another kind of cookie, just a couple of nutrient-packed Maxine’s will fill you up.
Next, let's talk sugars. We sweeten with coconut sugar and dates, which are natural, low-glycemic sugars. This means, they’re good for a slow energy burn, not the crash and burn you get from refined sugars.
Coconut sugar is derived from the sap of the coconut palm and goes through minimal processing so, unlike white sugar, it retains trace amounts of natural minerals and vitamins like Vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium, and a prebiotic fiber called inulin. With a glycemic index of 35 (as compared to white sugar’s 58), you’ll get sustained energy instead of a sugar spike followed by the inevitable crash. We also sweeten with dates, another low glycemic-index food. They keep our cookies sweet and soft.
We also use ingredients like coconut nectar (say hello to amino acids!), white rice flour, palm fruit oil (a good fatty acid), flaxseeds (which can help reduce the risks of certain cancers, heart and lung diseases, and omega-3 fats), and the fiber you need from oat hulls.
So, we have a snack that keeps you full and fueled all day without a sugar spike- and crash. It has the healthiest carbs out there, natural ingredients providing fiber and minerals that can actually be good for you.
Plus, we’re talking soft, delicious cookies. You really can’t go wrong.
