Organic cookies :)

**WINNER: #36, congrats Allie!! Winner has been emailed. Thanks to all who entered and thanks again to Home Free!**

Sometimes the organic products are hard to find at the grocery store–like they’re hidden away in the corner or behind posts or in the last place you’d think to look. I wish they weren’t because then maybe more people would buy them… I definitely think they’re better for you and your kids. We try to stay away from GMOs (genetically modified organisms) as much as possible in this house. So when I was given the opportunity to review some organic (and allergy friendly) cookies, I couldn’t wait. I was really curious to see how they tasted.

Home Free was founded by mom (whoohooo!) Jill Robbins. She was a clinical psychologist and turned to creating these snacks when her son was diagnosed with food allergies. These cookies are organic certified, free of trans-fats, and rich in whole grains. They’re also peanut-free, egg-free, dairy-free and tree nut-free. You should check out the info on their kitchen and baking/shipping process–they go to great lengths to ensure their products really are allergy friendly! Of course we don’t know yet if Ryan has any food allergies, but I love the cookies because they’re organic (and yummy)! They have:

Cookies: chocolate chip, chocolate chocolate chip, and oatmeal–all are also sold individually wrapped or in boxes and they come in mini-size
Coffee Cakes: apple or cranberry
Cookbook/Baking Ingredients: everything you need to get started!
Gift baskets

I was sent the mini chocolate chip cookies and the regular sized oatmeal cookies. LOVE the chocolate chip. I’m a huge chocolate fan, I could live on it. I should say though that they are crunchy. I wouldn’t have even noticed (because that’s how I like my cookies), but my brother-in-law likes soft cookies so he wasn’t a huge fan of these. On the other hand, the oatmeal cookies are very soft–they were good (my husband loved them), but like I said, I prefer crunchy. I suppose I could tell a difference (compared to regular store-bought cookies), but maybe only because I knew that’s what I was eating. I think you’d be surprised at how “normal” and delicious they taste while still being organic and dairy/peanut/egg free.

An individual cookie is $1.79 or buy a box of 6 for $5.49. The mini-sized box comes with about 31 cookies… my box was gone in about 2 days (THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE SWEETS AROUND THE HOUSE! DID YOU SEEEEE MY MCFATTY MONDAY POST?! lol) But really, I’d love to have these around the house as a special treat!!

One lucky reader is going to win TWO boxes of cookies!!!
