Alternative Baking Company!

Posted on

Thank you to Megan from Alternative Baking Co. for sending me two varieties of the BEST cookie in the Galaxy for review on the blog!

The Alternative Baking Company has created some of the most indulgent cookies I have EVER tasted.  Their cookies contain no dairy, no eggs, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, no cholesterol, no animal ingredients, no artificial ingredients, and no refined sugar!  UN.believable.  Each one of the hand made batches is created using organic wheat flour and sweetened with fruit juice and organic unrefined cane sugar.  They even have WHEAT FREE cookies now, too, that are made with organic barley flour!

With 11 varieties, including the flavor of the month {which is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip right now!}, this company has a phenomonal recipe for baking these treats.  They come in Colossal Chocolate Chip, Explosive Espresso Chip, Luscious Lemon Poppyseed, Peanut Butter Persuasion, Phenomonal Pumpkin Spice, Outrageous Oatmeal Raisin, Double Chocolate Decadence, Cranberry Orange, Mac the Chip, and Snickerdoodle.  The last two varieties being that of the wheat-free cookies.   They’ve also got a variety pack!

The Lucious Lemon-Poppyseed was excellent.  I don’t even like Lemon-Poppyseed anything, but I was sent one of their cookies in this flavor to try, and I could not stop at just one serving.  Maybe because every other lemon tasting product I’ve tried was so artificial tasting?  I couldn’t get a full appreciation for the flavor?  They were SO moist! 

  Check out the ingredients list! 

INGREDIENTS (VEGAN):
ORGANIC UNBLEACHED WHEAT FLOUR, ORGANIC UNREFINED CANE SUGAR, FRUIT JUICE AND NATURAL GRAIN DEXTRINS, NON-HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE BLEND SPREAD (NATURAL NON-GM OIL BLEND-SOY, PALM, CANOLA AND OLIVE OILS; WATER, SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR*, SOYBEAN LECITHIN, LACTIC ACID*, VITAMIN A PALMITATE*, AND BETA CAROTENE COLOR), POPPY SEEDS,  NATURAL TAPIOCA AND POTATO STARCHES, NATURAL LEAVENING (ALUMINUM FREE BAKING POWDER AND SODA), PURE LEMON, NATURAL VANILLA, SEA SALT
*NOT DAIRY DERIVED
 

 

Nutrition Facts

They were fairly calorie dense, but totally worth it.  Not to mention, check out the saturated fats!  Barely any! And 3g of protein in 1/2 a cookie!  I’ll take it! 🙂  The cookies were ENORMOUS, containing 2 servings in just one package.

I also got to try the Colossal Chocolate Chip

This was a little piece of heaven in a plastic wrapper.  I had this available for the ladies at girls’ night to try with me, and they gobbled it up quicker than you can say “The Bachelor”.  I got a small hunk of this glorious cookie and savored every morsel.  The chocolate chips melted in my mouth, and again, the dough was almost like it was 1/2 baked, that’s how moist it was.  My FAVORITE kind.  Still partially doughy.

The stats for this guy were about the same as that of the Lemon-Poppyseed.  240 calories per serving, with 7g of fat, 2.5 saturated, with 3g of protein.  Holy cow.  So worth it.

I’d love to try the Outrageous Oatmeal Raisin and the Phenomonal Pumpkin Spice sometime!!  You can order them online here!  Keep up the amazing baking!
