Last week, the folks at Almondina contacted me about tying their cookies.
Now, I’m not one to turn down sweets. But what really drew me to this company was the fact that their product was nutritious. In fact, their mission is “to put a delicious healthful cookie on every table.” But would a health cookie taste good?
Actually, it took just one bite of their Bran Treats to convince me. I love how each biscotti-like cookie has big chunks of raisins and almonds. As an added bonus, each 3-cookie serving has only 99 calories, yet 2g fiber and 3g protein. They are also cholesterol-free, have no added salt or fat and have zero preservatives.
Other flavors include Pumpkin Spice, Choconut, Chocolate Cherry. Gingerspice, Cinnaroma, Sesame and Original.
Crunchy and not overly sweet, these cookies would be delicious served alongside tea in the afternoon or even topped with fresh goat cheese for a pre-dinner nibble.
Almondina cookies are sold nationwide, including stores like Trader Joe’s, TJ Maxx and Woodmans.
But I’d like to offer two boxes of these amazing cookies to one lucky reader!
