If you could have seen me trying this cookie, you would have seen my happy dance. While my chocolate chip review was favorable, this one is better! I even split this cookie with my husband for a little dessert date and though he knew it was “vegan” and “healthy” beforehand, he still thought it was delicious.
All the benefits of the previous cookie hold true:
- 16g of protein, 8g of fiber (per whole cookie)
- No dairy, eggs, soy, trans fat, artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols
Those stats alone are enough for a happy dance, but let’s talk about taste. Snickerdoodle has always been one of my favorite types of cookies. With this one, I was looking for flavor, texture, presentation, satiety, etc.
The flavor of this was in my opinion, 100% on point with a typical snickerdoodle cookie, tasty, full of cinnamon and sugar, perfectly sweet and definitely delicious. The texture was very much like your homemade cookie (maybe missing the burned edges), whereas I felt the texture was slightly off on the previous chocolate chip cookie because of a lack of butter. This cookie was dense and didn’t feel diet or healthy at all. The presentation of this cookie was great, just like a snickerdoodle I would pick out at a bakery. Extra cinnamon and sugar was even left in the bag and I dumped it on top before indulging. (Kind of like the bottom of a cinnamon toast crunch cereal bag!) Lastly, to satiety… this cookie, though split in half and shared was enough to knock out a sweet tooth and provide a dessert night cap for a wonderful weekend. Though I could definitely eat the whole thing myself, I didn’t need it. One half was enough. This is not a ghost food, where you’re over-eating the healthy version of something trying to get satisfied like the real thing (ie- eating 1 cup of no sugar added ice cream for the same calories as a half cup of the real thing!?)
My one sad note on this cookie, which has nothing to do with my review points is its “dunkability.” I had this with a small glass of milk, and as someone who adamantly dunks brownies, cookies, donuts, etc., this cookie did not absorb any of the milk. Not a deal breaker in my book whatsoever. And I highly suggest you try this cookie out. I have a few more flavors to try and I’m excited!
