Finding The Best Healthy Cookies Online

August 20, 2010

Healthy cookies are a good way to have a nutritious snack. Cookies with whole grains, fat free cookies, vegan cookies and organic cookies are available online. If you are imagining that a healthy cookie is a bland whole wheat cookie then you are in for a pleasant surprise. One of the best things about today’s healthy cookies is that they are full of the ingredients we love like chocolate, dried fruit and nuts.

If you get healthy cookies you can even feel good about having them for breakfast. An oatmeal cookie with nuts is a nutritious way to get going in the morning. Nutritious ingredients include high-fiber, whole grains and nuts. Superfoods contain beneficial nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. Some of the superfoods that you can find in cookies are dried blueberries, flax seeds, and berries. Superfoods have antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. If you want cookies that don’t resemble trail mix, get cookies that are vegan or organic. If you are eating them at least you know you are eating cookies in a purer form.

So, many people are finding out they are allergic to gluten and mourning the loss of their favorite snacks like cookies. Fortunately, there are many healthy cookies available online that are gluten-free and delicious. Macaroons are coconut based and can be made without wheat. Other gluten-free cookies use flour substitutes such as brown rice flour or tapioca flour. You can even find chocolate cream-filled cookies online that are gluten-free. Agave nectar is a natural sweetener with a low glycemic index made from the agave cactus. A low glycemic sweetener reduces blood sugar spiking. You can find regular and fat free cookies with agave nectar in them at online cookie websites.

In the last few years trans-fats, which are processed fats, have been found to contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease. Trans-fats are found in shortening and margarine along with other products. Although they prolong shelf life and improve texture many health-conscious bakers are eliminating trans-fats from their recipes. One of the best things about buying healthy cookies online is that the bakers who care about nutritious ingredients generally also use healthier eggs, sea salt, grade A butter and aluminum-free baking powder.

Online bakeries make it easy to find healthy and fat-free cookies online. Their websites usually list the varieties available, a picture of the cookies and packaging options. If you want the freshest cookies have them sent over night or second day and avoid ordering at the end of the week when they might sit in a shipper’s warehouse over the weekend. Try some different flavors from various bakeries.
