nutridel cookies

Time for another product review!

A few weeks ago I received a sample from the very nice folks at Nutridel.  I was excited to try these cookies after reading more about them.

From the website:

NUTRIDEL is an artisan, gourmet cookie, made by hand in small batches with all-natural, earth-loving high quality ingredients. Our cookies contain no animal or dairy products. They are baked to perfection, and the result is a crispy, crunchy snack you can enjoy any time with guilt-free pleasure!

The brand is a concoction of the words “NUTRItious” and “DELicious”, exactly what our cookies represent. Our products are 100% natural, contain no additives, preservatives, artificial colorings, flavorings or sweeteners of any kind. They are loaded with seeds, grains, nuts, fiber and sweetened with a touch of molasses.

They come in four different types – Oatmeal, Almond, Flaxseed and Pecan.  I received the Oatmeal and Pecan to try out.  I decided to try them both the same way since I liked it so much with the first cookie!

First up was the Pecan.

The cookies come in a package of 2, with 1 cookie having about 60 calories, 4 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.  Not too shabby for a cookie.

The first thing I noticed about the cookies was the size!

And then, the amount of whole nuts, grains and seeds that these cookies contain!

You can really notice and taste the seeds and grains too.  It was great!  I had absolutely zero guilt eating these.

I broke the cookies in half and created a PB & J sandwich.

I really really enjoyed the cookie sandwich!  The pecan cookie was good.  It was crunchy and had a nutty taste and you could definitely taste the pecans.  It just had a hint of sweetness which I enjoyed.

I decided to make the same combination with the oatmeal cookie, since I loved it so much with the pecan!

One oatmeal cookie contains 62 calories, 4 grams of sugar and 3 grams of protein.

This cookie had whole sunflower seeds in it!

I loved the oatmeal flavor!  I love the crunchiness.  When crumbled up, it reminds me of and resembles granola, which I love!  It was not as sweet as the pecan, but almost had a hint of coconut to it.  It paired perfectly with chocolate walnut butter and maple cream.

I also crumbled the oatmeal cookie over a bowl of vanilla ice cream, which was a delicious combination!

Overall, I really enjoyed these cookies!  I love that they are low in calories and fat, while still being made with natural and whole ingredients.  Nutridel fills it’s cookies with whole grains, seeds, nuts and natural sweeteners such as coconut, cinnamon and molasses.  This is a cookie that you can feel great about eating!  It works perfectly with peanut butter as an afternoon snack, crumbled over yogurt as breakfast, or just eaten as is on the go!

Unfortunately, these cookies are not sold in the Boston area, so in order to get them I’d have to order online which I cannot really see myself doing.  Maybe when a craving hits!  If you are in the California area though, check them out!  I am so happy that I got to try these, I highly recommend then and they are very delicious!
