Nana’s Coconut Chip Cookie
Nana’s Cookie Company of San Diego, California makes a variety of cookies and bars with the Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie a true stand-out. Made of all natural ingredients – organic whole wheat flour, oats, fruit juice, rice dextrin, non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil, chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut, baking powder, natural flavorings, and sea salt – Nana’s Coconut Chip Cookies are moist, chewy, and delicious. The cookies are made without refined sugars, dairy products, hydrogenated oils, eggs, trans fats, GMO, cane or beet products.
Each cookie weighs in at 3.5 ounces and is huge by most standards making it nearly impossible for a person to eat a whole cookie in one sitting (although I’m sure someone has). The entire cookie has 360 calories (compared to 480 calories for the same serving size of Chips Ahoy or Oreo’s, or 420 calories in one Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie), 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of dietary fiber, 18 grams of sugar (compared to 33 grams for the same serving size of Chips Ahoy or 42 grams of sugar in Oreos or 40 grams in a Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie), and 18 grams of fat (compared to 24 grams of fat in the same serving size of Chips Ahoy, 28 grams in Oreos, and 20 grams in a Mrs. Field Chocolate Chip Cookie). Most important is that none of these other cookies have an ingredients list comparable to Nana’s.
Vegan and vegetarian, Nana’s Coconut Chip Cookies are individually wrapped which makes them perfect for a to-go snack. Stuff one in a backpack or purse for an afternoon treat at school, the movie theater, or in the car.
Nana’s Coconut Chip Cookies can be purchased at most Whole Foods stores or through www.amazon.com where 12 cookies sell for $24, shipping including for Prime members, or through www.vitacost.com where each cookie is about $2.
