Cookies that can be good for you? It's not too good to be true! The Doctors are joined by celebrity nutritionist and best-selling author Kimberly Snyder. Kimberly brings her "Coconut Wow Cookies," for The Doctors to taste. These cookies are made with coconut oil which Kimberly says our bodies burn off as energy and the oil can support a healthy metabolism. The cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, contain no refined sugars and most importantly, delicious!
They contain coconut nectar as a sweetener, almond flour which is full of protein and minerals, and coconut flakes. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says with cookies, people should think about what they are able to substitute and take out to remove some of the sugar and sweeten them in a natural way. Coconut oil is Kimberly's solution!
Kimberly says coconut oil is great for baking. It stays stable at high temperatures and can easily be substituted for other unhealthy oils. She says coconut oil is great for energy and won't contribute to wrinkles like vegetable oil does!
She can not speak highly enough about coconuts and says there are over 15,000 clinical studies showing their benefits. Ready to taste these cookies? Follow her recipe from her book "Perfectly Imperfect Life," here!
