Review: Sarah’s Skinny Sweets

We recently had the opportunity to sample some pretty amazing cookies from Sarah’s Skinny Sweets.  Have you heard of Sarah’s before?  I hadn’t, but I am sure glad that I know about these cookies now!

I was super impressed with these cookies!  Normally I am not a fan of foods made with xylitol, but these didn’t seem to bother me in the least.  The flavor and texture were outstanding!  I can’t believe how moist these cookies are.  All three varieties are good, but the orange cranberry almond is my favorite!

The cookies are not only gluten-free, but vegan and low carb too.  They are okay for the Paleo diet and safe for diabetics.  The cookies can be purchased in a few select stores in California or online.  They are $7.99 for a bag of 6 cookies.

I loved reading about Sarah’s story and how these cookies came about.  She, like many of us, struggled with not feeling well and not knowing what was wrong.  One day, after trying many other diets and not having much success, her mother suggested trying the gluten-free diet, as she herself had a gluten intolerance.  Sarah’s stomach pain disappeared once she was on the gluten-free diet!  She began to experiment with baking, making her creations as Paleo as possible, but also wanting to make them diabetic friendly.  Sarah’s grandfather is a diabetic and she wanted to make something that the entire family could enjoy.

***These cookies were sent to me free of charge for review purposes.  The thoughts and opinions shared in this post are mine and have not been influenced by anyone or anything.
