Health Benefits of Cookie Dough Cookies
1: Assists Weight Loss
It may sound counterintuitive — eat cookies to help with weight loss?
But these aren’t just any cookies. The carefully selected ingredients in these chocolate chip cookie dough cookies are meant to crush your sugar cravings and keep you satisfied. And how exactly do they achieve this goal?

Through satiating ingredients like almond flour and nut butter.
Research shows that consuming nuts can be a great tool on your journey towards weight loss. In one study, participants that ate almonds had greater weight loss than those who didn’t consume nuts. And another study showed similar results, with a large portion of the weight loss coming from the loss of harmful abdominal fat.

2: Source Of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
It can be tough getting enough omega-3’s in your diet. Omega-6 fatty acids seem to be everywhere, but unless you’re eating fatty fish and algae on a daily basis, you may not be getting enough of the precious omega-3 fats.

No, you’re not adding fish or algae to these cookies, but grass-fed butter happens to be another source of omega-3 fatty acids. This is an important distinction though; the butter must be grass-fed as grain-fed butter does not contain the same amount of omega-3’s.

Getting the proper ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids is vital to your optimal health. Research shows having the proper ratio of the fatty acids can lower your risk for many of the chronic diseases prevalent in Western societies

3: Anti-Inflammatory
Monk fruit is truly a fantastic sweetener. It not only acts as a sugar-free stand-in for table sugar, but studies show that its antioxidant activity may lead to anti-inflammatory responses in the body.

In one study, researchers gave mice extracts of monk fruit and assessed edema (inflammation) in their ears. The mice given monk fruit showed a significant reduction in inflammation, and researchers concluded that the effect came from monk fruits ability to inhibit inflammatory chemicals and also upregulate anti-inflammatory genes.
