High Protein Cookie Dough

This was initially intended to be a cookie dough, blended oats recipe since that is quite trendy at the moment! I was excited to try something new with my oatmeal but, honestly, it was impossible to eat more than a few bights without being really full! However, it is DELICIOUS. So I pivoted to making eggs for breakfast, and ate this throughout the week as a high protein cookie dough snack, eating a few bites at any given time when I needed some extra protein or energy.

Healthy Snickers Overnight Oats Cycle Syncing

Oats are high in fiber which makes it wonderful for our body during the follicular phase. Fiber is key to helping our body flush out excess estrogen while our body ramps up production at this time of the cycle. The specific type of fiber it contains is called beta-glucan, which acts as a prebiotic for beneficial bacteria in our gut microbiome. And because a healthy gut is able to best regulate hormone production, this is very important! Rolled oats are also typically gluten-free by nature, so for those of us who are gluten sensitive - this is a great breakfast to have.

Peanuts (and peanut butter) contain high levels of magnesium, iron, and vitamin B6 which are all important nutrients to eat during this time. B6 helps with acne and mood, which are two common things that occur during the menstrual phase.
