Hey everyone, I have a new review for you.  This week we have a new cookie company to review. Life is sooooo hard.  😀

So my husband loves finding new companies to explore and try out.  This week he came in and brought me a few of the new cookies from The Cookie Department. And to be completely honest, I didn't take as many photos because they were gone in minutes. But I did manage to get a couple and an honest review!

The Cookie Department, small husband and wife company headquartered in Portland Oregon, has a line of five Fully Functional cookies are nutritious options for those of us who have a sweet tooth and love cookies.

Created by Akiva Resnikoff, infused decadent bakery style cookies with ‘functional’ ingredients like coffee caffeine, superfoods and protein, so you can be “fully-functional” every day!

What I liked:

We are all trying to eat better and be more environmentally friendly ( someone has to do something ) but we don't want to have to give up the things we love.  I love that these cookies have zero trans fats and are palm oil free.

The packages are 100% recyclable too.

The taste:

They are soft and chewy, not too sweet.  It really is a good balance of sweetness. 30% of the sugar they use comes from dates. Nice!

 

Normally I don't really like the health food cookies that you get in places like Whole Foods or the climbing gym.  They lack flavor and the texture is usually gross. It's either gritty or hard, but rarely are healthy snack foods tasty.

I could eat the Chocolate Chip Nookie every morning for breakfast. Yes, I do believe that cookies are a breakfast food, no judgments please! 🙂

Maca Root Cookie?

The Chocolate Chip Nookie has something called Maca Root and it is supposed to be great for :”tired blood” (anemia); chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); and enhancing energy, stamina, athletic performance, and memory. People also take maca by mouth for female hormone imbalance, menstrual problems, symptoms of menopause, improving fertility, and sexual dysfunction caused by antidepressants, weak bones (osteoporosis), depression, Lyme Disease, leukemia, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, erectile dysfunction (ED), to arouse sexual desire, and to boost the immune system.” according to WebMd.  Yummmmm!

There are several other cookies that each boost a different perk for eating them.   They are all made with no artificial ingredients, no hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup. And did I mention they taste good?

The Downside:

They aren't easily available yet. You can find them here. You have to order them. My husband did see them at the climbing gym this morning, so maybe they are opening up other options.  But you can order directly and use Code DANCING10 to take 10% off your order. 

Cost: $31.50 for 12 (3 oz) cookies
