Zemas NEW bite-size cookies

Now more than ever before, people with food allergies, on specialty diets, or those who just want to eat healthy are looking for products that are not only good for you but TASTE GOOD, too. A few years ago I was introduced to Zemas Madhouse Foods, a line of ancient whole grain baking mixes, and met the founder Jill when I was living in NYC. Since then, Zema’s has come out with a new product; mini cookies!

Zemas recently launched a new product crunchy, free-from, bite-size cookies! Zemas bite-size cookies are clean, simple and packed with better for you ingredients like nutrient-rich ancient whole grains and a superseed trio of chia, hemp and flax meal. 

The cookies are available in 4 flavors:

  • sweet potato spice: ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg provide big flavor and nutrition alongside our vitamin A packed Peruvian sweet potato flour.
  • oatmeal cranberry: Dried cranberries make this a unique treat packed with uper seeds (chia, hemp, flax) add healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • double chocolate: Antioxidant rich cocoa powder meets nutrient-dense, ancient whole grains to deliver a deep, rich chocolate flavor with a big crunch and superfood health.
  • chocolate chip: This classic childhood cookie just got a nutritional boost. To be honest, this was the only flavor I did not really enjoy.

While I really liked the sweet potato spice cookies and oatmeal cranberry, I wasn’t a big fan of the other two flavors. But, my sister’s boyfriend LOVED the double chocolate so I gave him the rest of the box! These cookies are good for when you need sweets but don’t want all the sugar and other ‘bad’ ingredients that come along with it. While they do not taste like your ‘typical’ cookie, they will satisfy your sweet and crunchy cravings!

Not only are Zemas products made from ancient whole grants, all products are free from the top 8 allergens. Zemas products are not only certified top 8 allergen free, but also Kosher, Vegan, GFCO and Non-GMO Project Verified and made without refined sugar. 

You can purchase Zema’s cookies on Amazon (free shipping for Prime members!) and in grocery and health food stores across the country, including Legman’s and Price Chopper. Click here to find a retail location nearest you. 

Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I was not paid to write this review.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
