It’s Friday, and I’m loving today’s Friday’s Find. If I told you that you could have gluten-free, organic, chocolate cookies that are made with only five ingredients, would you believe me? Would you believe me if I told you that they were actually good for you and that they contain “real live” ingredients? Well, I’ve never lied to you, so you’d better believe me. But would you believe that they were delicious enough to stop a chocolate craving in its tracks?I’ve been eyeing Go Raw Super Cookies for a while now, but I hadn’t picked up a package until this week. I’ve been anti-package, anti-processed foods lately, so I’ve stayed away from anything that doesn’t grow or move. But based on the fact that Go Raw is all about creating snacks that are “living”, I had to give them a try. While Go Raw makes Ginger Snaps, Spirulina Super Chips, Pumpkin Super Chips, and Original Super Cookies, I’m a chocolate girl. If I’m going to eat a treat, it has to be chocolaty.
So I chose the Chocolate Super Cookies.
These tiny chocolaty discs are made with all organic ingredients. The seeds are soaked, sprouted, and then dried at an average temperature of 98° so the ingredients are still alive yet easy to digest. Dotted with sprouted sesame seeds and flecks of coconut, these cookies are held together and sweetened with dates and raw agave nectar. The raw cacao provides a deep, satisfying chocolaty taste.
One bag contains 3 one-ounce servings, and each serving has just under 150 calories.
The Go Raw line was created by Freeland Foods, a family-owned company that produces raw, vegan, certified organic, certified wheat and gluten free products. Besides their cookies, they make bars, granola, sprouts, and even chocolate. After sampling the Chocolate Super Cookies, you’d better believe I’ll be looking out for some of their other products.
So, how do they taste? They’re hard and crunchy at first, and just when you start to wonder if you’re going to like these healthy treats, they turn chewy, and your mouth fills with a delightfully chocolaty taste. And, and I said, it’s a deep, pure chocolate taste that lingers after the cookie is long gone. I believe that is what stops a chocolate craving in its tracks.
Have you tried any Go Raw goodies? Which one should I pick up next?
