YES to Cookies Review and Giveaway

I love to snack, probably not so much now as I am dieting and watching what I eat. Once in a while, I love to grab a cookie, but being able to grab a cookie that is good for me is a plus. That's why I was so glad to be able to try Yes! To Cookies recently. Yes! To Cookies is the very first cookie to be made from fiber instead of starch and sugar, which is so unique in it's own right. The generous folks at Yes! To Cookies sent me a container of each one of their flavors:Strawberry-Banana Blitz and Coco-licious. These cookies are absolutely perfect is you are like me and watching your weight, diabetic or allergic to wheat gluten. At first, I seriously thought, a cookie with no sugar, no flour, these couldn't possibly taste good. They were good though, very flavorful and delicious. I usually love everything Strawberry and though the Strawberry Banana Blitz cookies were delicious, the Coco-licious cookies were absolutely amazing! Delicious chocolate flavor! My two girls loved them and hubby was really surprised by how well these tasted. The texture of the cookie is definitely a little different than a typical cookie, but the cookie is definitely soft and chewy. Zero starch, zero sugar, zero gluten and made with all natural ingredients. The fiber in these cookies is not digested and there are no calorie sweeteners, so if you are diabetic, you don't have to worry about your blood sugar. These are definitely the cookies to have when you have a sweet tooth with a nice cup of tea or milk to dunk them in. Only 5 grams of healthy fiber in two yummy cookies. Yes! To Cookies is not only available in the ready made cookies, but they also have cookie mixes that you can make in your own home for a fresh, hot cookie as well.

Yes! To Cookies was born through a man's love for his woman, literally. The woman had a severe insulin dependent diabetes and had tried every recommended diet and artificial sweetener on the store shelves, with no success. The man knew there had to be something to combat the rapid sugar spikes and plunges that she endured on a daily basis and allow her to have a little room in her diet as well. The low calorie and artificial sweeteners never tasted too good to either one of them and he knew he could do better. He knew he couldn't use starch or sugar, as foods with these ingredients always caused his love to have unpredictable high blood sugars followed by scary low blood sugar crashes. Although he had never heard of baking without starch, he had to try. He decided to leave out the starch and use fiber instead. His first attempts at baking were not very good, but she tried every batch and amazingly, NO blood sugar spikes. Despite his previous attempts at flavor and consistency, she really loved the cookies and he couldn't give up on his dream. To read more about this truly wonderful story behind the making of Yes!
