These chewy cookies don’t have any added sugar – just the natural sweetness of dates.
Dates are high in fiber, disease-fighting anti-oxidants and minerals that support good bone health. Cashews have a low glycemic index (GI), which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels, and are full of fiber, to help digestion, healthy fats and high-quality plant-based protein. They’re also loaded with magnesium, which helps with heart health as well as regulating nerves and blood pressure. Cashews may also be good for people with Type 2 diabetes by controlling blood sugar and insulin levels. We use organic cashews that we source from an independent collective in Wonogiri, Indonesia, that supports small-holder farmers and their families. Almonds are a good source of magnesium, which may help lower blood pressure and control blood sugar levels, and Vitamin E, which is an important antioxidant and good for cellular health all over the body.
Cinnamon has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is good for people with diabetes as it helps lower blood sugar levels and can improve sensitivity to insulin. Clove is a popular spice in Indian cooking and is used in traditional medicine to support healthy liver function and help regulate blood sugar levels.
