Erin Baker’s Breakfast Cookies Review
As more and more “healthy” products enter the market these days, it’s hard to distinguish what is really good for you and what isn’t. It was close to a year ago when I came across the Erin Baker’s cookies at theGore-Tex Transrockies Run and I was about 12 miles into a 24 mile run through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I came across some fruit, chips, m&m’s, Clif Bars, and Erin Baker’s Cookies. At that point, I wasn’t super hungry and a cookie just didn’t sound good to me at the time, but it was definitely something that sparked my interest. I was thinking to myself, what is a cookie company doing at an endurance race? Months passed and I came across the Erin Baker’s company again and I decided I needed to check out what these baked goods were all about.
Like most people, I get a sweet tooth from time to time, but knowing that so many cookies primarily consist of butter and sugar, I sometimes stay away. After taking a look at the Erin Baker’s cookies ingredients, I was happy to see that I could satisfy my sweet tooth and not put a bunch of junk ingredients into my body. Now I won’t lie, I do like butter and sugar as much as the next person, but when I can find an alternative that taste just as good or better, I am all for it.
One of the cookies that I found to be super tasty is the Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie. And while it does have Chocolate in the cookie, it also has a number of healthy ingredients that won’t weigh you down. This is the ingredient list for the Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie.
Whole Grain Oats, Unbleached Wheat Flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), Prune Puree, Evaporated Cane Juice, Water, Chocolate Chunks (sugar, chocolate liquor, anhydrous dextrose, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), Brown Rice Syrup, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, Chicory Extract, Molasses, Baking Soda, Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt, Soy Lecithin, Dried Egg Whites, Aluminum-Free Baking Powder, Cinnamon.
The Breakfast Cookies as well as many of the other products by Erin Baker’s are individually packed, so they work out great for throwing a snack in your pack or pocket while hiking, camping, cycling, running, etc. Aside from being a great snack for outdoor activities, I also like the fact that Erin Baker’s seems to be pretty in tune with the athletic and outdoor industry. For example, Erin Baker’s has partnered with the world famous Ironman race series and they also have their own triathlon team. And while sponsoring particular races and having a triathlon team are not completely unique, it does show their support for the active community.
So the next time you are at the grocery store and looking to grab a snack for your next activity, I suggest you give into your sweet tooth and give Erin Baker’s a try! For more information on Erin Baker’s cookies and other products they make, please visit https://erinbakers.com/
