Crave Right, a small gluten-free, vegan cookie company in the Northeast, sent me some samples of their cookies to try. Their cookies are all gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and corn-free. They do contain sesame (one of the primary ingredients used).
Crave Right bills their cookies as a natural source of protein and fiber, and low glycemic. For example, the chocolate chip cookies have 4 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and just 7 grams of sugar per serving. One serving is two cookies, with just 150 grams. These might just be the healthiest cookies I have ever seen.
The cookies are also grain-free – no flours (not even gluten-free flours) or starches are used in the making of these cookies. The package says “Crave one, eat two,” but I have to say, I wasn’t craving at all after eating one of these cookies – a testament to the low glycemic claim.
The cookies come in three flavors – chocolate chip, sesame, and chocolate chunk.
I love that they are individually wrapped, making them a great option for on-the-go families with food allergies.
I found the cookies to be considerably less sweet than the usual cookie; I would classify then more as protein bars than cookies. They are more of an on-the-go healthy snack than a treat. Those who are not allergic to sesame or other seeds may find these a great option to add to their pantry.
