Homemade Healthy Snacks - #9 No Sugar Apple & Ginger Oat Cookies - An Original Recipe

Cookies with a kick!  Anything with ginger on a chilly day is a bit of welcome warmth, and I think these are lovely mid-afternoon with a nice hot cup of green tea.  Again, no sugar, just the natural sweetness of apples and honey, so perfect for curing those sweet-tooth cravings without giving into that evil temptress sugar!

Ginger is a wonderful medicinal spice, a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.  It's used to treat cold and flu, to treat digestive discomfort, helps ease toothache, help ease muscle and joint pain & stiffness, lowers blood sugar levels, aids heart health, improves circulation, helps treat acid reflux and nausea (including morning sickness), helps ease PMS cramping, helps fight infections, and contains 6-gingerol which is said to help prevent cancer when taken regularly.
