Summary:

Very sweet, big cookies - I mean, what's not to like? Though I'd be fine with a little less sugar, they hit the mark with flavor and pleasantly chewy textures. Most varieties are "doughy" in the middle, despite being relatively thin, but this cookie dough fan isn't complaining. Every flavor had solid merits, but my favorites were the sweet warm Vanilla Bean Dream, the sea salt spiked melt-in-your-mouth Coco Loco, and the snickerdoodle-esque Sugah Cinnayum.

Don’t worry, traditional Nomoo Cookies are still emerging from their dairy-free ovens. Nomoo Vegan Cookies are simply an expansion of this bakery’s delicious offerings.

Nomoo Vegan Cookies (Review) - 8 Amazing Kosher Parve Flavors

Nomoo Vegan Cookies are generously-sized, just a notch or two below the beloved “jumbo” cookies I remember from childhood. They are thinner, a little “doughier”, and I think just a touch sweeter than the Nomoo Cookies with eggs. But really, these are just differences, not declarations of preference. Both are amazing in their own right.

Tasting Notes for Nomoo Vegan Cookies

I sampled EIGHT varieties of Nomoo Vegan Cookies. To note, the word “vegan” doesn’t indicate “healthy” here. These are sweet, straight-up desserts to be enjoyed by many of us in moderation. Because the cookies are so sizable, I cut several into quarters and chilled them (they refrigerate and freeze like a dream) to enjoy bites as cravings hit.

Vanilla Bean Dream

I love how this flavor is speckled all over with vanilla bean, like little flecks of culinary gold! The cookie is thin, and really sweet, but rich with delicious vanilla flavor. Despite being thin, it has a firm, not quite crunchy outer layer with a tender, soft, doughy middle. It’s hard not to love this unique and amazing cookie. But my adult taste buds would feel it was spot on with just a wee bit less sugar. Overall, excellent though

Oatmeal Choco-Chip

As to be expected, this variety is pleasant, with the lightly hearty vibe of oatmeal, but the tender dessert essence of a cookie. The sweetness seems just right, and the chocolate chips offer big delicious bursts of goodness throughout. Overall, I really like it. It’s just a smidgen below homemade goodness, but I can’t really pinpoint the reason. This one was double the thickness of the Vanilla Bean, but still not “fat”.

Loco for Coco

Dotted with big salt crystals, this flavor of Nomoo Vegan Cookies had me intrigued. Wow, it is oh-so tender, like a melt-in-your-mouth brownie in a cookie format. I loved the very chocolaty richness and full-size chocolate chips throughout. And the bursts of sea salt created a bold, grown-up, salted chocolate flavor that heavily contrasts the pure sweet bites. My taste buds felt like they were on a see-saw, with the flavors going back and forth to find balance.

Classic Chipper

Not much to say here beyond very good! There were lots of delicious, sizable semi-sweet chips throughout. The only odd thing was that the base tasted like it was made from oat flour, despite being made of wheat flour. And it was just a touch crumbly compared to the other flavors.

Raspberry Bliss

This big bite had the consistency of the Vanilla Bean Dream, like a soft, thin, chewy but doughy sugar cookie. It also had the same general flavor, but the outside is coated with powdered raspberry instead. It was fun and tasty, but didn’t really have a big burst of raspberry. Rather it was more like a vanilla cookie with fruity notes.

Chocolate Chills

The texture of this pure chocolate cookie was like a cross between the Loco for Coco and the Vanilla Bean Dream. It had a firm exterior, and thin but soft and almost dough-y interior, yet still a very brownie-esque like vibe. The mint slowly emerges and leaves with a refreshing finish, but it is more permeating and subtle rather than a forward mint flavor. And did I mention that this one has chocolate chips, too?!

Citrus Appeal

This is a good, almost a basic sugar cookie, with the same same consistency and base flavor as the Vanilla Bean Dream and Raspberry Bliss. But rather than a flavorful coating, this one contains chunks of sweetened zest. Oddly enough, I wasn’t really tasting bold citrus notes, but the overall flavor is still quite pleasant.

Sugah Cinnayum

This had that telltale sugar Nomoo Vegan Cookies consistency, but is truly for snickerdoodle fans. The generous notes of warm spice really take this one up a notch! I could see this variety being a real crowd-pleaser.
