These delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are naturally sweetened with Body Ecology’s BE Sweet. They’re easy to make — and even easier to eat.
“I’m very pleased with the BE Sweet powder. I’ve used it in several baked goods so far, and it has not produced the tummy troubles that erythritol-based sweeteners do, which is great! No aftertaste; pours like sugar. Perfect for low-carb/keto/diabetic cooking!” – Cheryl

You may be eating too many sugary foods and flour products if you’re suffering from constipation (making this sugar- and gluten-free chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe all the more appealing). Another possible contributor to constipation and sluggish digestion is improper food combining. If your digestion needs more support — and movement — try following the Body Ecology Principle of Food Combining, outlined in detail here.
When you practice the rules of proper food combining, you may feel hungrier than usual. Again, this is because you’ll have no “bloated” or full feeling after meals. So, just eat smaller amounts more often. It’s fine to have four to five smaller meals throughout the day. As long as your food is properly combined, you can eat as often as you need to.
