Black & White Cookies- how could you NOT like them!!?! In fact when I pulled mine out of the fridge, a friend said something like “Oh! My FAVORITE!!” (Which then I immediately stared back saying hey! this cookie is MINEE!! =)  )

Nutritious Creations makes these delicious cookies. They are rather large, about the size of a CD or even a bit bigger, that are all natural and fat free.

Starting with the best part- the frosting. It was a hard frosting, the black or chocolate side, had a deep chocolate flavor with the typical flavor that you’d find from a frosting from a jar, but without the smooth consistency. The white side, or the vanilla side, was my favorite. Sweet, and a yummy vanilla flavor, it reminded me of white chocolate. The cookie itself was somewhat dry, which makes sense seeing as there was 0 grams of fat per serving, but was sweet and also had a vanilla flavor to it. This cookie was THICK too- look at the picture!

I liked it both straight from the fridge or warmed up a bit in the microwave. Although the cookie part was kinda dry, nothing a glass of milk couldn’t help 🙂 Another thing I noticed, one serving is 2.5 oz, but after I weighed my cookie on a scale it was 3.6 oz. Not terribly off, and I expect discrepancies to happen like that when it comes to baked goods or cookies. However, I would eat this again (and again and again). It certainly satisfied my sweet tooth and I LOVE big cookies!! 4 1/2 stars

During my rather busy day yesterday, I ran into a little grocery store and bought myself a greek yogurt and a Nutritious Creations Low Fat Banana Walnut Cookie. The store had a few options to choose from, but I was in the mood for banana, so I bought that one. I liked, for one thing, how BIG the cookie was. Not the typical homemade or medium sized store bought, but a large cookie. Perhaps the size of a CD. This cookie is made with natural ingredients, and although not something I would normally indulge in, seeing as it was made with corn syrup and wheat flour as opposed to whole wheat, I decided to buy it anyway.

Anywayyy…

Because it stated it was low fat, I was expecting a rather dry and very sweet product,  but it actually wasn’t that bad. It had a good amount of sweetness, and was only slightly dry. It overall had a good amount of moisture and a chewy texture, which I also think was from pieces of rolled oats throughout the cookie. The banana flavor was really good- a real banana flavor, not a fake, artificial one, which I really enjoyed. The walnuts were also a nice touch, not big chunks, but rather small pieces dispersed throughout the cookie. What I did not like at all was that there was these rice crisps throughout the cookie, and it was sort of offputting for me. It was like eating a chewy cookie and then an unexpected piece of puffed rice got in the cookie. I didn’t really like it, and it sort of took away from the cookie in my opinion.

Overall, pretty good cookie. I would totally buy it again if there was an option without the rice crisps. I liked that there was 4 grams of fiber and 170 calories for a rather large cookie. However, this cookie also had 18 grams of sugar, and was made from wheat flour rather than whole wheat, so I would use it as a “treat” rather than an everyday snack. 3 stars
