Genisoy Chocolate Mint Sweet Crisps

Genisoy Chocolate Mint Sweet Crisps
It is not difficult to admit that I love cookies. Really, who doesn’t?  You may recall previous posts where I have shared with you my love of cookies – including a post on Ian’s Cookie Buttons.  But, cookies are very high in calorie, as are a lot of foods that taste so good. I've always loved the thin mint cookies sold by Girl Scouts, maybe a little too much. So, during Girl Scout Season,  I’ve been known to buy a box of Girl Scout cookies and give them to the girl that’s selling them – just to avoid the extra calories.  With that being said, I would like to share with those of you who also love thin mint cookies a product that I have found to taste just like them – Genisoy Chocolate Mint Crackers.
These are so yummy and they can give you your thin mint cookie fix without all the added stuff that you’ll find in the regular thing.  But what I really love is that I can eat 10 of these delicious, cholesterol free crisps for just 90 little calories, and only 2 weight watchers points plus points. They’re airy and light and they have a full three grams of protein per serving with very little sodium.  Genisoy makes these using whole grain corn flour and soy flour, which is also a plus.  These are perfect for dipping in coffee, tea, or even in almond milk, or just eaten alone as a snack or dessert. You can buy genisoy sweet crisps from Whole Foods or online from Amazon. If you love thin mint cookies, I seriously would try to find these. Yep, they are *that* good.


PS. If you are a cookie lover, also check out this yummy recipe for a low calorie cookies and cream shake

Someone sent me to a "do it yourself" thin mint site where people used Ritz crackers, melted semisweet chocolate chips and peppermint extract to make their own thin mint clones.

I have made a yummy modification. I take reduced fat Ritz crackers and spread them with a mixture of fat free cream cheese, ghirardelli 60% cacao baking chips, and peppermint extract. It's really tasty and transfat free!
