This week, we love LUNA Cookies. What is not to love about a moist, chewy, whole-grain snack that packs all of the yumminess of a soft-baked cookie with nutritious ingredients like flax seeds, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, folic acid and Vitamin B12 in each sweet bite?
The makers of LUNA Bar have created this new line of cookies and good-for-you treats in addition to their 14 flavors of LUNA Bars (Caramel Nut Brownie is a favorite flavor of ours). The cookies currently come in three flavors: Chocolate Mint, Berry Pomegranate and Peanut Butter Chocolate. Each dense and generously-sized cookie contains 130-150 calories, 2.5-6 grams of fat, 4 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein. Pour a small glass of cold skim or soy milk and savor a bit of cookie heaven.
In addition to the delicious taste of each LUNA Cookie, we love that these individually-packaged snacks have built-in portion control. As much as we love other “healthy” cookies like Kashi’s TLC cookies, you can only purchase them by the box. Yikes! In a moment of emotional frenzy or during a fabulous episode of Desperate Housewives, that box is vulnerable and in danger of becoming extinct.
If you’re someone who can’t keep their hand out of the cookie jar, you can find LUNA Cookies in the energy bar aisle of your grocery or health food store.
