Let’s face it: We’re all Cookie Monsters. But we also want to eat food that is healthy and flavorful.
Enter, Real Cookies, a new grain-free, gluten-free cookie company founded by Greenwich entrepreneurs Lauren Berger and Marla Felton.
Initially baking cookies for family members with food sensitivities and then taste-testing the results for several years, Berger and Felton eventually settled on a recipe made only with clean ingredients – almond and coconut flour, maple syrup, vanilla, real fruit and dark chocolate. The result? A cookie that they found to satiate those with or without food allergies. Individually packaged, the cookies are kosher, vegan- and paleo-friendly and gluten-, grain-, and dairy-free.
Real Cookies come in chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip, and lemon blueberry. We sampled some recently and found them to be flavorful with a distinctively gritty texture. Real Cookies are online in single serve two-packs ($3.49) and boxes of 12 single serve packs ($41.89) at realcookiesco.com.
