A couple of days ago I went to MOM’s to restock on my Natural Allergy Treatment ingredients. While I was looking around for the honey I happened to walk by the snack aisle… and couldn’t help but notice a bag that said: Caveman Cookies. Needless to say I was intrigued.
Turns out Caveman Cookies is a cookie company run by a group of people who follow the Paleolithic diet. The cookies come in four flavors including: Original, Alpine, Tropical, and Rainforest. And each flavor is made with ingredients that Caveman would have had access to in that region. For instance the Tropical flavor is made with almond meal, honey, unsulfured coconut, macadamia nuts, and ginger.
At $4.49 for a bag of small six cookies, they are certainly on the expensive side… at least for a poor college girl like me. But since they were made by kindred spirits, I had no choice but to splurge and buy myself a bag.
At first bite, I didn’t quite know what to think. They weren’t warm and gooey like homemade cookies. They weren’t very sweet. And they were very chewy.
However after eating about half the bag, give me a break that’s only 3 cookies, I decided that I like them. Yes they aren’t warm and gooey… but they’re store bought, what do you expect? And yes they aren’t very sweet… but that’s because they are sweetened with honey, which makes them taste more natural. And yes they are very chewy, but that’s exactly what makes them awesome. It’s almost impossible to find “chewy” snack foods when you’re eating primal.
So if you’re in the mood for something chewy, slightly sweet, and primal… and don’t have time to make Almond-Butter Bacon Cookies… then I recommend you give Caveman Cookies a try!
