Okay these might not look like much but they are my new favourite snack. I bought one of these at Planet Organic a while ago to try them out because they looked like a good hearty, dense cookie that would have some satisfaction power. These are perfect for an energy pick-me-up, or for a long hike, or for just because which is what I’ve been having them for :-D I admit, they don’t look lip smackin’ good, but don’t let that fool you!
I had no idea what the NI for it was at the time, so I googled it and found the recipe posted which had all of the same ingredients as was contained on the label. So decided to make a batch and do a true test with a “control cookie” that I bought at PO and I bet you can’t tell them apart can ya? It’s definitely the same cookie and boy was I excited to have the recipe because let me tell yas, they’re hearty, dense, chewy and have some major satisfaction power and pack a mean nutritional punch to boot! I think they might even be vegan?! I found that there is quite a few ingredients in these, but the best part about PO is that you can get most of them in bulk :-)

I punched it into sparkpeople.com to tally up the NI for myself and I stretched out my bath to make 30 cookies and they are only 130 cals each which honestly sooooooooo worth it.
