Even though I lead a very healthy lifestyle by eating right and working out regularly, I like to indulge from time to time and really enjoy the good stuff. And by good stuff, I mean bad-for-you stuff. You know – cookies, cakes, ice cream, etc. The stuff that can sabotage all my hard work. There are some healthier brands and versions out there and I’ve tried some of them but it’s hard to compete with the taste of full-fat, sugar-laden, rich everything. So when I had the opportunity to try out ginnybakes, I was intrigued but a bit uncertain about trying cookies that are gluten free and contain no artificial ingredients. I learned that ginnybakes was created by a holistic nutritionist so that those with gluten-free diets could enjoy freshly baked good that are organic, handmade with love in a gluten-free kitchen, free of artificial preservatives. The packaging claims that they are outrageously delicious. That’s a pretty bold statement if you ask me! But I’ll be the judge of outrageously delicious!
When I opened up the boxes ginnybakes sent me to sample, I was so excited to try them and had no idea which flavor to start with. I’m a very decisive person but with the flavors they sent, I suddenly couldn’t make a decision to save my life! Do I start with chocolate chip love, chocolate chip macadamia love, chocolate chip oatmeal bliss, coconut oatmeal bliss, double chocolate happiness, buttercrisp love, dreamy vegan delight, or the chocolate chip oatmeal bliss ginnyminis? Seriously, just look at all these different flavors!
Knowing how this story ends, I now know that I couldn’t have gone wrong with any flavor I chose. I often say my food is cooked with love but you can really taste the difference in these cookies! They are made with quality ingredients and you’ll notice the difference instantly. While I’m not usually a fan of crispy cookies, these are absolutely amazing. After the crunch comes the melt in your mouth part. Every bite is rich and decadent. I would never believe that an all natural, organic, gluten free cookie would taste this good. It’s seriously a challenge to stop eating them!
I usually gravitate toward chocolate chips cookies but ginnybakes has broken me of that mindset. The chocolate chip cookies were absolutely amazing but even the cookies without chocolate chips were delicious! I would happily eat those all day long! Some of you know that I have been transitioning to a mostly vegan diet the last month or so but I hadn’t tried any vegan baked goods until now. Ginnybakes makes some “dreamy vegan delight” cookies. If I knew this is what vegan cookies tasted like, I would have converted a long time ago! They also have mixes so you can make your own delicious brownies or cookies at home. You’ll add your own love to these 🙂
Seriously, these are the best cookies I have every had. Ginnybakes claims to be outrageously delicious and I can whole-heartedly agree! I can’t believe cookies made with all natural ingredient that are gluten free, organic and non-gmo can taste like this!
