No-Bake Cookies for Constipation
What’s in them?
Most of the ingredients in these chocolate no-bake cookies for constipation have a laxative effect. Soaked flax seeds and soaked chia seeds both gel which helps move gunk through the intestines. Coconut oil creates a slippery surface for things to slide along. Oats even have a small laxative effect, in addition to being fibrous. Coconut flakes are also very fibrous. The idea was to create a treat that is easy to eat a lot of and that kids wouldn’t object to. Hopefully this meets the requirement for you.
As a quick note. It is important to hydrate when constipated. It is even more important when adding foods that are a natural laxative. Drink lots of extra water while eating these cookies.
