No-Bake Energy Cookies

No-Bake Energy Cookies

Simple and delicious No-Bake Energy Cookies are full of nutrients to keep you going all day long. As we near the end of Ramadan, some of us find the fasting to be easier, others may find it to be more difficult.  Eat a couple of these delicious cookies at Suhoor and give yourself the kick you need to make it through a long day of fasting.  After Ramadan pack a couple for lunch to give yourself an extra boost until dinner time. The kids will love these too, they make great afternoon snacks.

From years of playing sports, I have learned that eating whole grainsfibre and protein is the only way to get through any physical challenge. Fasting is no exception. Complex carbohydrates found in whole grains release energy slowly. Foods high in fibre, like whole wheat and dried fruits are slower to digest therefore equally distributing energy throughout the day. Protein in the peanut butter and almonds help keep your muscles energized and your mind clear. All of these are equally important when you are fasting and are packed into this little cookie.

Make a big batch of these easy No-Bake Energy Cookies and eat a couple with a glass of milk and some fresh fruit and you will feel great all day long, insha’Allah.
