I really wasn't expecting much from these ordinary-looking, individually wrapped cookie bars. But they have an alluring, addictive, fudgy cookie taste that is positively indulgent. It was hard to believe they were so darn wholesome with no refined sugars. We still haven't tried the Chocolate Chippy flavor, but I've heard it's equally delicious.

It’s a cookie, no it’s a brownie, no…it’s Nana’s Cookie Bars!

Not to be confused with Nana’s Gluten Free Cookie Bars, these are Nana’s wheat-based Cookie Bars. Though you would never guess it from the taste, Nana’s Cookie Bars contain no refined sugars, only fruit juice. Trust me, I wouldn’t have believed it if it wasn’t stated in several places on the package. White flours and sugars don’t enter Nana’s kitchen, these cookie bars are all natural and made with whole grain flours. Did I mention they are free of dairy and eggs too?

Tasting Notes for Nana’s Cookie Bars

This melt in your mouth cookie bar starts with a cake like texture, but quickly sinks into a rich, yet not overpowering, chocolate flavor. The sweetness of the Fudgy Wudgy Nana’s Cookie Bars is perfect, somewhat akin to a brownie with a smooth semi-sweet chocolate flavor. The texture is initially soft and chewy, as any good cookie bar should be. Though it quickly lives up to its name as each bite evolves into an insanely fudgy taste and texture.

Kids will easily love the mellow fudge flavor of these Nana’s Cookie Bars, while moms may have trouble stopping at just one. Of course, the bars are perfectly sized and individually wrapped for lunch boxes. I know what you are thinking, “Another cookie?  My child certainly doesn’t need any more cookies.” Surprisingly, Nana’s Cookie Bars are different.

Yes, I confess, these Nana’s Cookie Bars do contain wheat. The organic whole-wheat flour is a health bonus for some, but an issue for those with gluten intolerance and some autoimmune disorders.  For these individuals, Nana has many great solutions, including her Gluten Free Cookie Bars. Don’t worry, they’re very tasty, too!
