Cookie Republic

by Anne Paddock

I’d say I’m about one cookie away from being happy…                                                                          ~Snoopy

When I hear the words “Cookie Republic” I think of a country that honors the importance of cookies in our daily lives but Cookie Republic is actually the name of a company founded by a group of firefighters in Westchester, New York who recognized the importance of nutrition (two of the founding firefighters have masters degrees in nutrition) and flavor in creating a cookie that provides energy and satisfies that cookie craving. Instead of posing for the annual FDNY calendar (not that eye candy doesn’t fill an important public service), these buff, very fit firefighters are in the kitchen making cookies.

Using wholesome ingredients, Cookie Republic created three delicious thick, chewy cookies  – Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Brownie and Peanut Butter that are gluten, dairy, and egg-free.

All three of the cookies start with a based made with whole grain flour blend (oats, millet, brown rice, sorghum, buckwheat), coconut oil, brown rice syrup, honey, dried cane syrup, brown rice protein, tapioca flour, ground flax, vanilla extract, sea salt, xanthan gum, soy lecithin, and citric acid.  Chocolate chips, alkalized cocoa, peanut butter, peanuts, peanut flour, and cinnamon are added, depending on the cookie variety.

Each 2 ounce cookie has about 200 calories, 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, 10 grams of fat (4 grams of which are saturated), 12 grams of sugar, and 284 mg of sodium.

The cookies are sold at retail outlets throughout the New York region for about $2.49 each and on-line directly from Cookie Republic (www.cookierepublic.com) where 12 cookies sell for $24.50 (or about $2.04 each) plus shipping (about $6 per box).

 

Today me will live in the moment unless its unpleasant in which case me will eat a cookie.                                                                                                                      ~Cookie Monster
