BarleyMax(TM) is a CSIRO developed grain that has a large number of different fibres, including those with prebiotic properties, which act as fuel to encourage growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in our gut. These cookies incorporate a pre-launch sample of the BarleyMax flour as well as EVOO to boost the good fat content of the cookies. The kids won't know the difference and will be begging for more!
Most people, even those with the 'windiest tummies' can tolerate a small amount of legumes. We recommend starting with a teaspoon of hummus if you are unsure and gradually increasing the amount to establish your threshold level. Dried legumes should be soaked for at least 18 hours to remove most of their poorly absorbed sugars which are responsible for producing gas. Don't forget to discard the soaking water and use fresh water for cooking.
