Yes! to Cookies Review

Cookies never last long in our house. I always say “oh, I’ll eat just one” and then end up eating 3 or 4. This is not the best thing to do when you are watching your weight or if you have other health concerns. I had a chance to try out Yes! to Cookies which has some unique attributes making this “not your average cookie”.

Yes! to Cookies are made from premium, all natural ingredients that are sugar-free, have zero starch, and zero digestible carbs.  They are perfect for those of you who have glycemic index concerns (they are 0) and follow a gluten free diet. How is this all possible? They use fiber INSTEAD of starch and since fiber is NOT digested, it has no calories and no effect on blood glucose.  If you have ever been on a diet, you will  know that starch becomes sugar when digested which only adds the pounds on if you eat too much!

We had a chance to try out two flavours- Strawberry-Banana Blitz and Cocoa-Licious cookies. I liked them and found they were sweet without the high calorie sugars. They were nice and moist too. John wasn’t crazy about them. He said they tasted “very healthy” and he prefers his regular brand of cookies. However, John’s kids were here over the holidays and they quickly gobbled them up. One of his boys liked the Strawberry-Banana Blitz the best while the other one preferred the Cocoa-Licious.

I have followed a gluten free diet before and its good to know that their are products like Yes! to Cookies out there to satisfy a sweet tooth. I remember feeling neglected that only cookies I could eat tasted like cardboard and am glad to know that their is a better tasting and flavourful cookie that I can now enjoy. You don’t need to be on a gluten free diet to enjoy the cookies. They are perfect for those of you who are watching your weight and want to have a guilt-free treat once in a while.

You can purchase the cookies as a mix and make them yourself or get them already baked like I did. To buy, you can order online or find a retailer near you.
