Nutridel Pecan and Almond Cookies

Author: Healthnuttxo

Nutridel is a great brand that makes all natural, delicious cookies. These “cookies” are different than your typical chocolate chip, or sugary treat. They are filled with yummy nuts, seeds and grains, and don’t contain any refined sugar!

I tried the Oatmeal and Flaxseed varieites of the Nutridel cookies once before, but the folks over at Nutridel also sent me the Almond and Pecan flavors to try. Well- let me tell you, I LOVE THESE TWO FLAVORS! Thanks a bunch for sending me them, Nutridel, because I am now officially HOOKED!

Each cookie is flat, crunchy and about the size of a CD. You can see bits and pieces of nuts or seeds in each cookie. They all contain fiber, antioxidants, and are free of eggs, dairy, preservatives and hydrogenated oils. Sounds like my kind of cookie 😉

Almond- a pleasant almond aroma, this one has actual big slivers of almond throughout the cookie. Absolutely delicious. The almond flavor is so nice, you can even detect the “almond essences” listed in the ingredient list. Lightly sweet, but still very enjoyable.

Pecan- oh, wow, YUM! This is my favorite flavor. It has a buttery rich taste of pecans, with an almost fruity aftertaste. You can taste the light sweetness of the molasses as well. Satisfyingly crunchy and absolutely great.

Overall, I really love these 2 flavors. I give them 5 stars. Since I got my samples, I’ve already bought a few boxes of the Pecan and Almond flavors off of the website. Really, these cookies cannot be beat. Low sugar, high fiber, and made with whole wheat flour and all the good stuff! I like having these with yogurt, and I crumble them up on top of my “chocolate muffin/pudding sundae” for a nutritious boost and healthy crunch!

1 cookie is 59 calories, 1-2 grams of fat, 14 carbohydrates, 1.5-2 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

Almond- Whole Wheat Flour, Wheat Bran, Amaranth, Almonds, Molasses, Sunflower Oil and Natural Almond Essences.

Pecan- Whole Wheat Flour, Wheat Bran, Amaranth, Pecans, Molasses, Sunflower Oil and Natural Pecan Essence.
