To describe a Rawxie as a delicious cookie is an understatement. Made primarily of oats, dates, nuts, and coconut palm sugar (which has a low glycemic index of 35 compared to cane sugar with 68 or honey with 55), Rawxies are a hybrid of nutritional food bars and an indulgent dessert, according to Callie England, the creator of these scrumptious treats. Made in Kansas City, Missouri, Rawxies are heart-shaped cookies made in four selective flavors: Lemon Poppy Seed (my favorite), Mint Chocolate Chip, Mocha Almond, and Banana Nut Bread.
Rawxies are gluten-free, vegan, and made with all natural and easy to pronounce ingredients that are dehydrated (below 105 degrees) to preserve natural digestive enzymes enabling your body to break down and digest the cookie without releasing enzymes or in other words: the cookies are easily digestible. Each 24 gram cookie (nearly an ounce) has 85 calories, 2.0-2.5 grams of protein, 2.0-2.5 grams of fiber, 3.5-4.0 grams of fat, 135 mg of sodium, and 6 grams of sugar.
The Lemon Poppy Seed Rawxie is made of gluten-free oat flour, organic dates, organic lemon juice, almonds, organic palm sugar, organic coconut, organic poppy seeds, wildcrafted vanilla, lemon essential oil, and pink Himalayan salt. A chewy, refreshing and slightly sweet cookie with a lemony citrus flavor.
The Mint Chocolate Chip Rawxie is made of gluten-free oat flour, organic dates, almonds, organic palm sugar, organic coconut, organic cacao powder, organic cacao nibs, wildcrafted vanilla, peppermint essential oil and Himalayan salt. A rich, chocolate cookie with crunchy cacao nibs and a bold mint flavor…like eating a chocolate chip mint ice cream cookie.
Banana Nut Bread Rawxies are made of gluten-free oat flour, organic dates, organic bananas, almonds, organic palm sugar, organic coconut, walnuts, organic cinnamon, wildcrafted vanilla, pink Himalayan salt. A chewy cookie with the crunch of nuts and the flavor of homemade banana nut bread.
Mocha Almond Rawxies are made of gluten-free oat flour, almonds, organic coconut, organic dates, organic palm nectar, organic cacao powder, organic vanilla, organic coffee, organic almond extract, and pink Himalayan salt. A delicious almond cookie with a hint of chocolate and coffee.
