Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Here are two versions of these naturally sweet and satisfying banana oat breakfast cookies! (With and without peanut butter). These both have oats, so they are not AIP compliant but the low glycemic index won’t crank up inflammation.

Remember, higher glycemic index foods tend to be pro-inflammatory. Glycemic index is a measure that indicates how fast a food will make your blood sugar rise then fall. It is a rating from 0 – 100. Higher glycemic index foods cause oxidative stress in the tissues, which increase inflammation.
