EDIBLE. HEALTHY. COOKIE DOUGH. (V, GF, DF, NON GMO)

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a SuPeR yummy product that I found and give you some insights into it! And it is indeed- edible cookie dough. I`ve made it clear I have a sweet tooth for cookies so it only makes sense that I try out vegan, gluten free cookie dough when I find it. This particular gem I stumbled across through Instagram. (and I am so happy I did!) The reason this is extra SpeCiAl is because not only is it vegan, gluten free, non gmo…. it also contains PROBIOTICS! That is freaking cool. A sweet treat that literally only helps and supports the good bacteria in your gut?!?! WHAT?!

I am too excited to share this! Let`s get into my thoughts on it.

First off- The brand is called The Lions Pack and their product I have is described as “Superfood infused edible cookie dough.” I have 5 flavors, Gingerbread, Snickerdoodle, Snicker Bar, Chocolate Chip, and Samoa (like the girl scout cookie). Almost all of their products are, as mentioned, non gmo, gluten free, and vegan and contain probiotics! They sell pancake mixes, spreads, all kinds of stuff. If you are into sweets while maintaining your fitness goals- this stuff is for you! Below I am going to describe the taste and talk about the ingredients, like a review in case anyone is interested, and you should be ๐Ÿ˜‰

TASTE-

Okay so NONE of these were disappointing! They each share a similar base flavor which is not overly sweet and a good crumbly-but-not-make-a-mess texture. However, the additional ingredients really determines the flavor. For example, the Samoa Cookie has added in chocolate chips and shredded coconut whereas the Snickers Bar has added in peanuts.

GINGERBREAD COOKIE- This one and Snickerdoodle are the sweetest of the two. It is just what you would expect from gingerbread cookie dough!

SNICKERDOODLE COOKIE- I really love this one! Cinnamon stands out so much in this and it is really enjoyable.*My favorite thing about these products is that they are rich without being overly sweet which allows you to indulge but feel super satisfied with just a small amount. You are not left feeling like you need to eat the whole jar to be satisfied! (But you definitely could!)

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE- With just added chocolate chips, it is pretty simple and classic.

SAMOA COOKIE- This one is sooooo good. I love coconut and with the chocolate chips? Delicious.

SNICKERS BAR- This one to me tastes like peanut butter cookie dough.. hmm. So not exactly like the candy but I am definitely not complaining. This one is by far my favorite.

INGREDIENTS-

 

So the base ingredients are all similar and simple! Brown rice flour, cashews, agave nectar, coconut oil, and vanilla are some of my favorite ingredients and these are pretty much in all of the flavors. Included in the ingredients is their “superfood blend” which consists of: (ALL ORGANIC)

  • Wheat Grass
  • Barely Grass
  • Alfalfa
  • Spirulina (love)
  • Spinach
  • Chlorella
  • Broccoli
  • Dutch Cocoa
  • Redwood Cocoa
  • Acai Berry
  • Maca
  • Carrot
  • Beet
  • Raspberry
  • Rose Hips
  • Pineapple
  • Green Tea
  • Acerola Cherry
  • Flaxseed powder
  • Oat Fiber
  • Apple pectin fiber

You`re probably thinking how, and honestly I do not know. But they did it and it tastes great so round of a plause people. The Probiotics included in each cookie dough are:

  • Lactobacillus
  • Acidophilus
  • Protease
  • Amylase
  • Lipase
  • Lactase
  • Cellulase

For those who do not know, probiotics are the reason people drink kombucha and eat fermented foods. They are vital for good gut health! This is a perfect product for those who cannot jump on the kombucha bandwagon because hello same benefits! (Kinda)

All these 10 oz jars (238g) range from 108-117 calories per 2 tbsp with around 5-6 grams of protein, 3-4 grams of fat and around 5-6 grams of sugar. I would say this is definitely better than most cookie doughs out there with tons of added sugar and most likely low protein versus high protein and low sugar. As I mentioned earlier, this is a filling and satisfying snack or dessert (maybe eaten with breakfast..? just me?) and because of that, it is easy to maintain not over eating it.

To conclude my ongoing love, I want to say that this is a rich and fulfilling product perfect for those who want to support a healthy gut and still be able to splurge. You can eat this straight out of that jar or get creative with it! Roll the dough into balls and add to some nice cream for cookie dough nice cream! Or make a healthy milkshake! You can do a ton with this product and I highly recommend checking them out! This is a link to their website,ย The Lions Packย , and they also donate 10% from each order to The Dream 2 Achieve Kid`s Foundation. Overall, this is a good company as well as good products!

Let me know if you check them out and leave any comment down below on ideas you would like me to write about or recipes you want me to test! I have a few things I also want to share but I want to know what you as readers want to see!

xo, Chelsea
