The Empowered Cookie has given two of its flavors a seasonal make-over — Pumpkin Chai Ginger Molasses and Peppermint Double Chocolate Chunk. The chewy cookies are low-carb, high fiber, high protein, diabetic-friendly, blood sugar balancing, dairy-free and contain 7 grams of plant-based protein, according to the company.
The recipe, developed by Natalia Barr, a pastry chef, former athlete, and founder of Empowered Cookie, replaces traditional flour with almond flour and ground flax seeds to give the cookie a chewy texture while offering protein & fiber. The cookies are sweetened with coconut nectar.
“As a pastry chef and former athlete, I understand the need for gourmet performance snacks that you can take on-the-go, that are as good for you as they are delicious,” says Barr. “You don’t have to sacrifice taste for health. You can have a delicious, convenient snack that both your nutritionist and fitness trainer will approve of. These are the only cookies that belong in your gym bag. We’ve cut the junk without compromising our fresh out of the oven taste & texture.”
The new seasonal flavors are available in a limited batch, while supplies last.
