Lots of chocolate, however, and especially chocolate baked goods aren't vegan. I'm not vegan, either, but I'm trying to incorporate more vegan foods into my diet.
And guess what? Lucy's Cookies are vegan! And gluten-free, non-GMO, and made with lots of organic ingredients (though they are not entirely organic). There are a bunch of flavors and they sent me a few to try.
So obviously we all know which ones I had to try first.
Anyway, the awesome yumminess of these made up for it. They're crisp and crunchy cookies, whereas I usually prefer thick and chewy cookies, but the chocolatey flavor is delightfully intense and they're sweet, but not too sweet.
I also liked that the gluten-free flour blend added a little heartiness to the cookie, since it included some whole grains instead of the standard white rice flour of gluten-free baked goods.
I ate the pouch of cookies with a few handfuls of almonds on the side and a glass of chilly vanilla almond milk, while reading my novel of the day (Enlightenment for Idiots by Anne Cushman, it's such a fun read).
My second favorite flavor was the chocolate chip.
This one came in a box, for several snackings.
I smeared them with some crunchy almond butter and they tasted just like the Famous Amos cookies of my childhood roadtrips - only healthier and vegan.
Here's what's in it:
Again, 1.3 servings and again, I ate the whole bag.
Crunchy sweet and fantastic - I ate them in Whole Soy & Co soyogurt with craisins, granola, and almond butter. Nom nom nom.
These were the perfect ginger snaps - spicy, flavorful, and crisp.
The. Perfect. Snack.
And the (blissful) maple bliss cookies?
They taste like Sunday morning. :)
