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. :)

Trader Joe's Maple Leaf Cookies 

Wednesday, March 16, 2011 1:48:09 PM



Maple is definitely one of my favorite flavors. I couldn’t imagine waffles or french toast without maple syrup, and I LOVE it with scrambled eggs. So when I saw these Maple Leaf Cookies at Trader Joe’s, I just had to buy them!

On the cover, it states that it has a “smooth and flavorful maple cream filling” along with having “no artificial colors or flavors” and “no preservatives”. It already sounded like my kind of cookie ;)

Here’s what one of the cookies looked like out of the box.

I took a bite. Mmm. This was delicious. The cookie part was buttery and had that soft-crunchy texture. It reminded me kind of like a shortbread cookie. The cream was absolutely delicious as well. Very sweet, with a maple/vanilla flavor. Together it was just an awesome combination. This box of cookies will not last too long in my closet  ;]

Overall, another delicious find from Trader Joe’s. I would certainly buy these again. Perfect on it’s own, or I’m even tempted to try them with a smear of peanut butter or a glass of milk. A drawback would be the 2 grams of saturated fat per cookie and that it lacks fiber, but these really are delicious! 4 1/2 stars

1 cookie is 110 calories, 5 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat, 16 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of sugar, 0 grams of fiber and 1 gram of protein.

What’s your favorite maple-flavored thing?
