Almondina Cookies

almondia cookiesI recently found these delicious little all natural cookies at Whole Foods called Almondina. My flavor of choice is called "The Original," which is made with almonds and raisins, and has no dairy, added fat, salt or cholesterol. The cookies also come in other flavors like pistachios with almonds, as well as chocolate with almonds.

Each cookie is very very thinly sliced and super crunchy. They actually remind me of a cross between an almond muffin, a biscotti (but thinner, with less calories), and a crunchy "bready" crouton (one of the many foods I love but usually try to avoid).

Nutritionally speaking, 3 of the cookies are 100 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 0 grams of fiber (this is slightly less than one serving as listed on the package which is 4 cookies), or 2 weight watchers points. I decided my favorite way to eat the cookies is individually on their own, but you could consider crumpling one up into your ice cream, your low calorie egg nog (why I originally bought them!), spreading cheese across them, or dipping one into herbal tea which would also be absolutely delicious!

I found these little cookies at Whole Foods hidden at the bottom of one shelf in the cookie aisle. They can also be found at some Trader Joe's as well as various other stores.

One other thing... the lovely Mizfit allowed me to do a guest post on the very cool Mizfit blog today. The topic is low calorie avocado smoothies. Feel free to check it out! :)

Enjoy!
