In a world where Cookie Monster and Elmo are on Top Chef judging a cookie challenge, it’s hard to choose a carrot over a cookie when it’s snack time. I know I’m supposed to eat less sugar and have a healthy diet, but if I’m being honest, sometimes I just want a COOKIE! Instead of eliminating cookies from our diets altogether, a great option is to find healthy cookies. I know that may seem like an oxymoron, but it’s something that Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods has been able to achieve.
About Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods
I never thought, in good conscience, I could say “I think I’ll have a cookie for breakfast today.” Well, that’s exactly what I did the other morning and headed straight for an Erin Baker’s Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie. The Original Breakfast Cookie is made with whole grains, is sweetened with fruit puree, and is loaded with protein, antioxidants, and fiber.
The Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie was moist and chewy – almost like eating a chewy granola bar but much softer and much sweeter. The chocolate flavor was great and the cookie even had real chocolate chunks! Next up for us was the Caramel Apple Breakfast Cookie. Once again, the flavor was delicious. You could really taste the apple flavor and the extra caramel sweetness really popped. What was amazing to me was how much nutrition these cookies had to offer. The Caramel Apple had 5g of fiber and 16g of whole grains baked into the cookie.
Erin Baker’s has eleven Original Breakfast Cookie flavors, including Oatmeal Raisin, Mocha Cappuccino, and Banana Walnut to name a few. Each cookie is a hefty 3 oz and is surprisingly filling. With the fiber, protein, and complex carbs, the Original Breakfast Cookies are great options to have for breakfast or for a quick bite on the go. If you want to have a smaller, bite-sized option of the Original Breakfast Cookie, then you can pick up the Breakfast Cookie minis, which are just 1 oz.
While we’re talking about bite-sized, let me quickly say that the Organic Brownie Bites are incredible. The Erin Baker’s Organic Brownie Bites are USDA organic certified and are 100% totally delicious. There are three varieties of Brownie Bites – Double Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Mint, and Classic Walnut. I sampled the Chocolate Chip Mint and could not believe that the cookie only had 90 calories. It might even beat out Thin Mints for me. Really. (By the way, the Chocolate Chip Mints are currently on sale – 8/1 oz cookies for just $2.25!)
Besides the great flavor, one of the things I really appreciate about Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods is reading the ingredients label. Erin Baker’s cookies are made from “real,” all natural ingredients – baking powder, oats, vanilla extract. They never bake with artificial colors, flavors, or high fructose corn syrup. What is surprising is how nutritious these cookies can be. Here are some interesting Baker’s Facts:
- One Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie has more antioxidants than a serving of blueberries, red grapes and broccoli combined!
- One Original Breakfast Cookie has a full serving of Whole Grains
- Our Brownie Bites are made with Belgian Chocolate and are 100 calories or less
If you are looking for delicious, wholesome cookies, I encourage you to check out Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods. The Original Breakfast Cookies retail for $14.40 for 12 3 oz cookies and the Minis are $3.49 for 8 1 oz cookies.
