Peanuts are an incredibly nutritious legume. They are loaded with monounsaturated fats, the so-called good fats that we associate with Mediterranean diets and healthy hearts. One study even showed that, when peanuts formed a large part of diets, cardiovascular disease risk lowered by an estimated 21 percent. Peanuts have loads of vitamin E, niacin, folate, and protein. As well, peanuts contain resveratrol, the same phenolic antioxidant compound found in red wine and red grapes. This tiny nut is an excellent addition to anyone’s diet, and you can feel really good about giving it to your family in this cookie.
