Hop to it!

With Easter approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to do a review of the  new Gluten Free Cocoa & Vanilla Bunny Cookies that Annie’s Homegrown sent me to try. What better way to celebrate the holiday than with some of my favorite bunnies? (And Bernie, of course!) Even better- EVERYONE can have these this Easter– they are Gluten Free, all natural, and have 0 grams of trans fats!

First off, I LOVE Annie’s Bunny Grahams- honey, cinnamon and chocolate chip are all so delicious, and are my favorites. Annie’s Bunny Grahams truly are ADDICTING, there is no way you can eat just a serving- too delicious! That’s why I was SO excited getting these in the mail. Cocoa and Vanilla sounds like a great addition to the line of flavors.

Each Bunny Cookie is about the size of a quarter, in the shape of an adorable bunny (modeled after Bernie, Annie’s Homegrown bunny, of course!). I noticed that these were not as soft as the Bunny Grahams, and were a bit crisper/had more of  a bite to them. The cocoa flavor reminded me of the outside of an Oreo cookie. Crisp and sweet, but had a deep cocoa/chocolate flavor.  They were really good with the glass of milk I had, and smeared with some all natural peanut butter 🙂 Next was the vanilla flavor, which I preferred over the cocoa, as it was sweeter and more my style. It had a buttery taste to it, and reminded me of a sugar cookie with a little bit of vanilla bean added to it as well.

Overall, these are a nice addition to the line of Bunny Grahams, and let those of you who cannot tolerate gluten enjoy some cute little Bunnies! I’m givng them 4 stars overall– the only thing I didn’t like was that the first ingredient was cane sugar, and these are not enriched with calcium like the other varieties are. 🙁 Otherwise, like the box says, “You can’t eat just two”- I know I certainly can’t!

So forget the junky Easter candy this year- get some Annie’s Homegrown Bunny Grahams or Cookies! You won’t be disappointed!

But, that leads me to ask. What IS your favorite Easter candy? Mine used to be Marshmallow Peeps. Could someone make an organic/healthier version of those, please? 😀

So we all love Teddy Grahams-no? But do we also love the hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup? Eh, I think not. Just looking at the ingredients for Teddy Grahams makes me sick. So, imagine my excitement when I came across Annie’s Bunny Grahams. These cute little guys come in 4 flavors, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon, Honey and Chocolate. They also have cheesy flavors, but I’ll talk about that at a later date.

So I opened up my pouch of bunny grahams and popped a couple in. Sweet, but not too sweet, and you can DEFINITELY munch on them all afternoon-no problem! In fact, I ate practically half the box in one sitting. Whoops 🙂

Good thing is, no trans fats, all natural, and they provide 20% daily calicum need (more like 60% for me including i had more than one serving!).

28 grams, about 30 bunnies or so, is 140 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 22 carbs, >1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein.

Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Expeller-pressed Vegetable Oil, Organic Corn Flour, Organic Graham Flour, Cookie Bits (wheat flour, organic evaporated cane juice, sunflower oil, alkalized cocoa, salt, baking soda), Calcium Carbonate, Chocolate Chips (sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), Natural Flavor, Baking Soda, Salt, Organic Chocolate Flavor.
