Bananas: Ranked at #35 on the Environmental Working Group's 'List of Fruits and Vegetables with Pesticide Residue Data,' banana's are not a highly sprayed fruit. If you are watching your dollars, they are a "safer" bet to buy conventionally-grown; save your money for something higher up on the list to purchase organic.
Applesauce: Since apples rank #1 on the EWG's list for pesticides, those toxins find their way into any processed apple product (i.e. juice, gummies, etc.) This includes applesauce, so here's where to spring for organic.
Since oats are not a genetically modified crop, I will sometimes buy conventional if I can't find organic/old-fashioned. (For more on GMOs, see my GMO Blog) I never buy quick-cooking for any purpose; nor should you. (If you are buying oats simply to make oatmeal, the difference in cooking time is just a couple of minutes; a small price to pay for a big decrease in sodium!)
Almond Milk: Readily available and oh-so-yummy, make sure to buy unsweetened or plain. The flavored varieties have 25 grams of sugar per serving, or more, as opposed to less than 1 gram of sugar in the plain!
Raisins: Grapes score #3 on the EWG's list, and that's not good! They are considered a dirty fruit...and considering we eat them - as well as raisins - by the handful, it's something to take note of. Organic raisins are available and should be your product of choice!
The integrity of ingredients used in what you cook is reflected in the overall healthfulness of that dish! I hope that you enjoy these cookies...play with the recipe and make them your own!
