Chunkie Dunkies Raw Vegan Cookies (Gluten, Sugar & Soy Free, too!)

by ashley

As many of you may already know, one of my favorite pastimes (sad, I know) is roaming my local supermarket aisles in the hopes of finding something fun and new to try. While in Nutrition S’Mart last week, I was lucky enough to happen upon these adorable raw vegan cookies, even more enticing knowing they are made right here in South Florida. Chunkie Dunkies, based in Palm Beach Gardens, is a small business offering several different gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and even sugar-free cookie varieties. Trying to be as healthy as possible in my conquest, I decided to try their Sugar Free Lemon Cream cookies. They are a bit pricey at $6.99 for six small cookies, but I understand that quality ingredients are necessary to make raw vegan cuisine and would buy them again in the future as an occasional treat.

The cookie itself is best served cool and possibly with a glass of almond milk. The texture is fun, albeit a tad dry. The coconut and lemon was a great combination and several co-workers in my office also enjoyed them, including a few omnivores who are certainly not into raw vegan treats. The liquid stevia gives just a hint of sweetness, perfect for a hot summer day.

Chunkie Dunkies are sold in several health food stores throughout South Florida – a full list of locations is on their website at http://www.chunkiedunkies.com/
