Like many of us, I have a sweet tooth and always crave something decadent in the late afternoon or at night. As I get older, I do not have the same metabolism as I once did and am more conscientious of what I am putting into my body. My kids and I love cookies and when I do not have time to bake them from scratch, I get some of the take and bake kind from the local market. I try not to eat them because they are loaded with so many things that I do not need such as artificial flavors, hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup, but when they are baking in the oven their intoxicating scent leads me down the road of temptation. What can I say, I am human.
About a month ago, I was browsing my local Publix and as my daughter was reaching for a pack of cookie dough, I spotted an eye catching pink package of Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Sweet Loren’s. Intrigued, I picked up the package and saw that they were exactly what I had been looking for.
- 100% Whole Grain
- No High Fructose Corn Syrup
- No Artificial Flavors
- No Trans Fat
I purchased and pack and made them later that night. As they baked in the oven, the scent of chocolate chip cookies filled the house and my kids came running into the kitchen. After they cooled and were ready to eat, we all sat at the table and enjoyed them with milk. Sweet Loren’s Cookies are larger than most so one is all you need. Ok, maybe two, I won’t tell anybody. As I picked up the warm, freshly baked cookie, I could not help but feel nice and relaxed. I found a new way to indulge my sweet tooth without all the guilt.
It did not take the kids and I long to finish the first package, so on our next grocery trip I picked up their Peanut Butter Chocolate flavor and as expected, they were scrumptious.
I love trying new products that I see in the store and Sweet Loren’s is now a staple in my household. If you are looking for quick cookies that you can just pop in the oven, these will exceed your expectations and will fit in most healthy eating plans. They are available in Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Oatmeal Cranberry. If you live in the Tampa area, you can pick these up at Publix. Click here for a $1 off coupon. Enjoy!
