When you can’t resist having a treat, homemade cookies are best — but you might not have a couple of hours and all the necessary ingredients in the cupboard. If you’re going to indulge, Sweet Loren’s is one of the very few (and possibly only) good-for-you cookies in the freezer aisle. They’re quick and easy, free of the usual preservatives and chemicals in conventional store-bought cookies and ready to enjoy fresh out of the oven whenever you want.
Sweet Loren’s all natural, ready-to-bake cookie dough and brownie batter is made with unrefined ingredients, 100% whole grains and natural sweeteners, plus are certified kosher and preservative- and dairy-free. The box comes with 12 frozen ready-to-cook, break-and-bake cookies for $8, which makes it easier to exercise portion control and bake only one or two cookies at a time. (Party packs of 108 cookies are available too, for $50). The brownies come in a take-and-bake disposable pan of eight for $9, or a party pack of 24 for $22.
Born from a love of sweets and the desire to live a healthy lifestyle, Loren Brill began experimenting in the kitchen to create a healthier cookie after her battle with cancer. Before she knew it she’d won the Next Big Small Brand contest in 2011, with the opportunity to develop better packaging and expand her cookie kingdom.
Available in Heavenly Chocolate Chunk, Chewy Oatmeal Cranberry, Bold Espresso Chunk, Nutty Peanut Butter Oatmeal and Dark Double Fudge Brownies; order a box as a treat online or find them in select Whole Foods stores throughout the Northeast.
Because that’s the way the healthy cookies crumble.
