Friday Finds: Grassroots Granookies

December 17, 2010

I can’t believe it’s already Friday! This week’s Friday Find is Grassroots Granookies. What is a Granookie you ask? They are delicious little granola cookies that are 100% all natural. I love granola, but it’s not really convenient as a snack. Granookies are great because they are a granola cookie. You don’t need to lug around a bowl, spoon or milk, you just pop one in your mouth when you need a snack. Unlike granola bars that can be dense and more calories than you want in a serving, Granookies are cookie sized so you can eat as much or as little as you desire. These will be great this winter when I’m cross-country skiing and need to refuel.

Granookies come in two fabulous flavors, apricot cinnamon and chocolate chip.  Both flavors are sweet without tasting sugary. Just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. The chocolate chip has a delicious dynamic rich cocoa flavor. I really enjoy these cookies. They are like eating little bursts of sunshine. I was worried that they would be sticky to touch but they hold together without leaving residue on your hands. Added bonus, they are all natural so you don’t have to worry about eating all sorts of additives. I hate reading snack bar ingredients unable to pronounce half the ingredients! If you are like me and need an energy burst in the afternoon, Granookies are perfect. They also make a great lunch, crumbled into yogurt or for dessert by themselves, with hot cocoa or crumbled over ice cream.

Granookies were created by Stacey an attorney by training but a baker at heart. She left law after 5 years to pursue her passion for nutrition which is how she became an “intrepid creator, fearless baker and all-around awesome Mom. In an effort to bring more wholesome nutrition to her family, Stacey was sneaking ultra-nutritious, fiber-rich ingredients like chia seeds and flax seeds into her kids’ diets for years.” Stacey’s family is gluten-free so she understands how important it is to create safe products for people with food allergies. Check out the Grassroots Granookies’ website to order. They are dairy free, nut free, vegan, soy free and gluten free but not taste free! If you are traveling for the holidays or visiting friends, bring along a bag of Grassroots Granookies. You won’t have to worry about all your guests food allergies as these are approved for most audiences and your friends will love them.
