The last post I made was about the absolute BEST gluten free products out there after trying soo many. I came across these decadent cookies when I visited my brother down in South Florida. There was a perfect little health food store called Nutrition Cottage that I fell in love with. They had a fresh smoothie and juice bar, freshly made salads and wraps, and tons of healthy products (not to mention rows and rows of gluten free stuff!) They also had these little baggies of “healthy almond cookies” called Alyssa’s Healthy Cookies that I tried. They didn’t have any gluten in them, so I figured I’d see how they tasted. Ever since that first bite 4 years ago, I’ve been hooked!
These cookies are perfectly soft and chewy, with rich flavors and zero gluten. The company actually went on the show Shark Tank a few years after I had been ordering them, and they got their name out there. They now have a few more cookies, including some vegan ones as well. The three flavors of the ones I’m obsessed with are pure almond, dark chocolate, and cranberry coconut almond. All three are AMAZING! Dark chocolate is obviously my favorite as I’m showing them here. 🙂
The only ingredients these babies are filled with are dark chocolate, vanilla, evaporated cane juice, sea salt, egg whites, and raw almonds. Simple as that, and baked to perfection!
The perfect treat for those with gluten allergies AND for people who want to treat themselves with a heathier treat. Each bite sized cookie is only 66 calories and full of healthy fats and fiber.

MAIN INGREDIENT BENEFITS:
♡ Egg whites: great source of protein to help build and maintain strong muscles.
♡ Dark chocolate: filled with magnesium, antioxidants, and other cancer-fighting properties.
♡ Almonds: filled with fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, all beneficial for healthy skin and hair, producing satiety, and keeping your brain sharp.
I can totally get on board with their philosophy…
“Authenticity from scratch to finish using only 100% natural ingredients.”
1- Use only raw, simple, unprocessed, unrefined, 100% natural ingredients
2- Bake everything from scratch.
3- Use no fillers, flavoring, or shortcuts.
4- Accept no compromises in quality.
These cookies are the most amazing things I have ever had. I can’t wait to try and recreate them in my own kitchen, but I bet they won’t live up to these!
Order some today. 🙂 They freeze really well, and make great snacks pre- and post-workout!
