Mmmm…cookie dough! This hearty indulgence melted with a rich doughy flavor that I couldn’t seem to get enough of. More substantial than your typical chocolate chip variety, Nana combines the flavor of oats and all natural ingredients for a delicious twist on the original.
Like all of Nana’s popular cookies, this one is amazingly free of refined sugars, sweetened only with fruit juice. Unlike the Oatmeal Raisin cookie we trialed, I didn’t notice a different flavor to this cookie. It retained that familiar white and brown sugar cookie taste, without a speck in it. In addition to the low sugar bonus, this cookie is vegan and free of wheat (made with oat and barley flours).
The overall taste and texture was fantastic. Nana added the perfect amount of sweetness, not over the top, but still an indulgence. The chocolate chips are a bit different, more pronounced in flavor than semi-sweet, yet not really a dark chocolate. I can’t say that I preferred them to regular semi-sweet, but I certainly wasn’t complaining. Though most kids like anything called a cookie, I would definitely vote the Nana’s No Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie as a more adult-friendly option, due to the dense taste and texture and the stronger chocolate chips.
As I love all things “wheaty” and doughy, I would buy this cookie again in a heartbeat. Feeling generous, I did share some of the cookie with my husband. He really enjoyed it, but this isn’t much of a test. Like a youngster at heart, his discriminating taste buds are shoved aside for anything with the label “cookie.”
Where to Purchase: Nana’s products are sold in stores throughout the U.S., most notaby in Whole Foods stores (now to include Wild Oats). You can also order direct from Nana’s Healthy Crowd website.
