Today was one of those days that I just did not feel I could satisfy my sweet tooth. Mike and I are trying to be really careful about sugar, grains and dairy so what the heck did that leave to satiate this immense craving my head was telling me to fill? I normally like to bake my own treats but todays craving hit me hard and fast so there was no time to plan.
I have to be honest. I Really wanted frozen yogurt BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could have gone for the non dairy stuff but really how fun is that? Instead I headed to our local health food store and went up and down the aisles. I was like a crazed women needing a fix. It was really pathetic but fess up, we have all been there. Knowing my dietary restrictions I was able to quickly limit my choices. I finally settled on a bag of Vanilla Maple Coco-Roons.
These little critters looked so appealing in the bag. The ingredients fit my dietary requirements and they actually looked tasty as well. I tore into the bag and I have to tell you I was delighted but not totally wowed. Ok what does that mean you say? The cookie tasted sweet, a little like vanilla and a lot like coconut. I love coconut so this was a bonus for me. I did not really taste the maple flavoring. The cookie was perfectly portioned out and at 82 calories a cookie I did not feel the need to go back to the gym. The texture was a little crumbly as is most gluten free bakery goods tend to be. I think the only thing that holds me back from the WOW word is they were fairly dry. I did feel the need to drink something right after to help it go down. My craving for something sweet did not completely banish but it was diminished. This in truth can not be the poor cookies fault as it only has 4 grams of sugar in it and I had put it up against a huge sweet tooth craving. It did satisfy me enough to move on with my day without any additional purchase though so that was a score in my play book.
OK wrapping it up. I would for sure buy more from Coco-Roons. They are raw, organic, gluten free, dairy free and low glycemic. They were tasty and did feel like it was a special treat. The only thing I would do different with this purchase is make sure I had a steaming cup of herbal tea to drink while enjoying these little roons. By the way Coco-Roons come in a lot of different flavors. There is sure to be one that fits your craving.
