Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Immaculate Baking Company: Chocolate Chunk Cookies 

Tuesday, May 4, 2010 2:21:34 PM






Immaculate Baking Company is a great company that produces all natural & organic cookies, brownies and other treats.  They also produce all natural and organic doughs for you to bake your own goodies!

The company sent me a coupon for a free product to try, so I picked up the natural Chocolate Chunk cookie dough. It was 24 pre-cut squares of dough, that all you had to do was set your oven to 350 degrees F, separate, place & bake for 10-14 minutes. Easy, enough, no?

Well today I was craving some chocolate chippers, so I pulled my pre-made dough out of the fridge. Each dough ball was round in shape, thick, and only about an inch and a half in diameter. There weren’t really chocolate chunks per se, more like your standard chocolate chips. I reccommend letting them thaw a few minutes before separating, as a few of my pieces broke in half as I tried to separate each ball. I tried one raw (I know, raw eggs, bad, but who DOESN”T eat raw cookie dough!?!), and it was okay- not too sweet and actually tasted a bit off. But, I really can’t do a review on the uncooked product, so I obviously had to bake them! :)

One thing that was weird is that you can fit 20 of them on a pan, which leaves you with 4 left over (at least with the pan I used). I ended up just throwing the other 4 out because I couldn’t be bothered to wait 15 mintues for 4 cookies. When they were done baking, they turned a nice golden brown, but didn’t really spread out much at all. They were small!







The taste, however, is where it’s at. These were yummy! Similar to place & bake toll house cookies, but not as sweet. They had more of a brown sugar and vanilla taste, and I think I even detected a hint of maple flavoring. Yum! I could easily down a few of these!

Overall, these get 4 stars. They are tasty, but they are TINY!! The positives is that they are all natural, have no trans fats, and the company promotes “Cookies With a Cause”. This particular brand gives back to others, sucha s donating to charities or art supplies. Nice! The negatives however, is that there is NO fiber (made with unbleached wheat flour), has 2 grams of saturated fat per tiny cookie, and contain palm oil, one of the rather unhealthy oils.

Otherwise-if you need a place & bake chocolate chip cookie- look no further!These are trans fat free, and help out other causes, as well as delicious. Give em a shot! :)
