These aren’t just any old oatmeal cookie. These are ISOFLEX Oatmeal Raisin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yup! We’ve crammed just about everything we could into these delicious treats.
Oatmeal is one staple no diet should be without. Wholegrain oatmeal is a superior source of fiber as it contains both soluble and non-insolube fiber and helps to reduce blood cholesterol. It is also rich in cancer-fighitng phytochemicals.
As a souce of carbs, it can’t be beat. Science shows that when oatmeal is eaten before a workout (as much as 45 minutes before), it can enhance performance, increase testosterone and help build muscle.
These cookies make the perfect pre-workout snack and are a good substitute for protein bars. Enjoy!
