We thought we would take a minute to shed some light on the story of our Coconut Cookies, the original product line that Emmy’s launched with in 2009. Made with a short list of organic, non-GMO and vegan ingredients, our Coconut Cookies satisfy the need for a snack, dessert or just a healthy treat!
The idea to start Emmy’s Organics all started with the Coconut Cookie. Co-Founder, Ian, had created the recipe out of a need for himself. Because of a health condition, Ian had to cut certain irritants out of his diet such as gluten, dairy and soy to name a few. So he created a super simple cookie made from coconut, almond flour and coconut oil to satisfy his sweet tooth. When he taught the recipe to Samantha (our other Co-Founder), they knew they had something special.
SHORT INGREDIENT LISTS
More and more people are flipping products around to look at their ingredient lists and we could not be happier. Simplicity is what it’s all about for us. “You want to fully understand every ingredient in all of your food,” says Co-Founder, Samantha. “If there is something that you can’t pronounce, that should be a red flag.” Our Coconut Cookies are made with eight ingredients or less and we are proud of that.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC & NON GMO
Quality is one of the main reasons why our Coconut Cookies are “Not Your Average Cookie.” Not only are our Coconut Cookies simple in ingredients but each ingredient is certified organic and non-GMO. This is to ensure the best quality and sourcing for our products...and it comes through in the flavor. Organic and Non-GMO ingredients not only taste better, but they are better for the environment.
Is it possible to love a fat more than we love coconut oil? Our Coconut Cookies are made with cold pressed organic extra virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is the only plant based source of saturated fat that actually does the body good. With its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, cannot get enough. And did we mention it’s delicious?!
Our Coconut Cookies satisfy a number of different needs from a topping to an on-the-go snack. Try crumbling our cookies on your smoothie or yogurt bowl. Throw a bag in your backpack or gym bag for some delicious plant-based energy mid-day. Or, keep a bag or two in your cupboard for an upgraded clean dessert. Oh, and have you seen the amazing recipes on our blog?! There are a number of ways that our Coconut Cookies can be enjoyed and we are here for it!
Sure, our Coconut Cookies are simply made with high quality ingredients. But isn’t taste the name of the game? “The ultimate goal with our Cookies is to deliver on texture and flavor FIRST,” says Samantha. “The health benefits and clean ingredients are an added bonus.” Where would we be if our Cookies didn’t taste good?
