I had the pleasure of trying out Almondina cookies a few years ago and have been in love with their wholesome nautural crunch ever since. The family owned Almondina boasts a no choloesteral, added fat, preservatives, salt or trans fat cookie option for when I want a cookie but also want to remain healthy. The new Toastees by Almondina have the same natural content while adding a double baked crunch. Toastees are made with egg whites, and are also Kosher Certified and dairy free.
Toastees by Almondina come in four unique flavors: Cranberry Almond, Sesame Almond, Lemon Poppy Almond, and Coconut Orange Almond. As the name implies, each flavor has slivers of real almonds double baked into them with additional ingredients depending on the flavor. I usually prefer a softer cookie but these Toastees are perfect dipped in my morning coffee or tea, or great for a mid-day snack coupled with cream cheese or jams. Currently the Coconut Orange is my favorite, but the Cranberry Almond is a close second.
Toastees are available online at Amazon and Almondina.com, and can also be found at retailers such as Giant Eagle, Sprouts, Harris Teeter, Kroger Michigan, and others!
