Review of You Cookie

Design a Healthier Cookie With You Cookie

Looking for a unique gift this year? Shower your loved ones with the gift of cookies. Don't worry, you won't be contributing to the expanding waistline of the receiver, since you can craft a unique and healthy cookie with You Cookie. It's the same company who brought you customizable trail mix and energy bars. By choosing all the ingredients (which are mostly organic), you can make a cookie with or without eggs, with or without butter, and you can even substitute natural sweeteners like stevia in place of sugar.

To see a close-up of the cookies I created,

.

These cookies were made with an oatmeal cookie base, 100 percent whole wheat flour, eggs, organic agave nectar, Earth Balance margarine, grated carrots, pumpkin, peanut butter, Nutty Rice cereal, walnuts, almonds, flaxseeds, raisins, and dried cherries. Sounds delicious, right? I have to say these cookies tasted very homemade. They were moist and full of all the yummy ingredients I chose. The grated carrots, oats, dried fruit, and nuts were very visible and added a nice autumnal flavor. I will say that not using butter or real sugar made them taste very healthy, but for about 100 calories per cookie, they certainly satisfied my need for something sweet and chewy.

You can choose to have the cookies sent all together or individually wrapped, which keeps them fresher longer. They cost $40 for a dozen, and come in a cute metal tin with a personal label stating the name of your cookie. The nutritional info is printed on the bottom of the tin, so the recipient will know the ingredients and how much fat, fiber, protein, and calories are in their cookies. Although they're a bit expensive, these cookies are definitely a great idea for the healthy foodie in your life.

You meant "100% whole-wheat flour", right? As in ground wheat, not the flowers from the wheat. They sound good and all, but $40 for 12 cookies is just WAY too expensive. I can make healthy cookies for a lot less money.

UrbanBohemia, It's funny that you mentioned MixMyGranola because I'm currently waiting for my mix to arrive. I'll be sure to post my review as soon as I get to taste it!

It's funny: Yesterday in the NYTimes' Health Section there was an article profiling mixmygranola.com: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/07/health/nutrition/07recipehealth.html?scp=1&sq=mixmygranola&st=cse And it's the same thing, only with granola!

I don't think I could justify paying that much for cookies, but it's a great idea though. They look delicious!
