Here is a little bit I learned about Emmy’s Organics while reading about their journey to create these coconut cookies. Emmy’s Organics was started by a lovely couple who was having digestive issues. In order to combat these issues they decided at young ages to start avoiding gluten, dairy and other irritants. Therefore the coconut cookie was created. They source organic and non-GMO ingredients and produce their products in a wind and solar powered building. Emmy’s likes to summarize their commitment into three words: INGREDIENTS, TRANSPARENCY, TRUST.
Just reading the little snip it on them that I did taught me a lot about what this company is trying to do. Impressed with that alone I was excited to give these treats a try. Thank you Emmy’s for supplying me with (3) different types of VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, SOY FREE, AND GRAIN FREE cookies to try. I got to try Raspberry, Vanilla Bean, and Peanut Butter. My thoughts on each are below:
Dark Cocoa: We first started off with trying the dark cocoa flavor. What I loved about this flavor is it had a particularly rich taste and you couldn’t taste much of the coconut flavor, even though the cookie is primarily consisted of coconut. My dad even enjoyed this one even though typically he is not a fan of dark chocolate.
Raspberry: We moved on to the Raspberry next and boy was this a perfect chaser to the dark cocoa flavor. The raspberry was subtle and had just the perfect flavor notes. I would love to alternate between a bite of the dark cocoa and then a bite of the raspberry.
Peanut Butter: Lastly was the peanut butter. Now we figured the flavor of this would be so strong that it wouldn’t be enjoyable, but it was actually delicious. The cookie has pieces of peanuts throughout it and really just nailed it on the flavor. So often peanut butter desserts are too strong but this was perfect.
