Kookie Karma Raw Carob Truffle Cookie (DISCONTINUED)


Kookie Karma’s Raw Carob Truffle Cookie is a truly indulgent experience.  Though I could easily have eaten just half, I found myself unable to resist eating the entire cookie in one sitting.  Thank goodness there was only one cookie in front of me, as this is one intense treat. 

I was once a big fan of carob malt-balls before realizing that most contain dairy, hydrogenated oils, or both.  I was anxious to trial a new carob flavored food, and Kookie Karma didn’t disappoint.  The overall flavor was remarkably similar to my old favorites, yet the ingredients were not even close.  I am still shocked when I read the bizarre mix that turns this cookie into a truffle like treat: carob powder (not surprising), almonds (sure), organic agave nectar (okay), organic cold-pressed olive oil (?), organic dried olives(???), sea salt. 

The texture of the Truffle Cookie is quite smooth, with only a few specks of chopped almonds throughout.  It has a very dense consistency, offering a more fudge-like experience.  Oddly enough, this is one of Kookie Karma’s lowest fat varieties.  It is a bit steep in sugar, but an excellent source of calcium and iron.  Best of all, a little goes a long way.

  • Pros:  Vegan; Raw; Made with mostly organic ingredients; Gluten-free; Soy-free; Low in sodium; Trans fat-free; Contains no refined sugars or flours; Good source of calcium
  • Cons:  Quite high in overall sugar, though the sweeteners used are low glycemic
