Single Serving, Banana Bread Super Cookies

These banana bread cookies are easy to make, delicious, and packed with nutrients! I firmly believe the final form of a recipe takes on impacts the taste. So even though these cookies could just be baked oats - I think turning them into cookies makes it taste so much better! I consider them super cookies because they’re high in fiber and protein, are loaded with antioxidants, and they are gluten-free, dairy-free, and have no refined sugars. If you cycle sync, I tend to eat these in follicular but they’re great all month long! And though it’s a single-serving dessert, it makes 2 cookies because who eats one cookie?


Ingredients for your follicular phase: oats, flax. During the follicular phase, your metabolism naturally slows down, so you want to eat foods that aid liver detoxification to ensure estrogen buildup doesn't occur in the gut.



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 can 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.


Flax seeds act as estrogen blockers, which help our bodies reduce excess estrogen. They also are high in omega-3s which are shown to reduce FSH levels are anti-inflammatory which helps curb inflammation, and contain lots of protein which balances blood sugar.
