A FatSnax Love Story – The Little LCHF Cookie That Stole My Heart!
It wasn’t at all the flavor I expected would win me over. In fact, I thought I would hate it. Why oh why did I wait so long to experience this kind of FOOD JOY?!
Now that I have finished an entire box of FatSnax cookies, and tried all three flavors across four states in my recent travels 🙂 I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
It all started on my Instagram. That’s where I discovered @EatFatSnax, and where they discovered us. They sent me a box of their cookies, with all 3 flavors, for me to take on my low carb trip to Orlando and try out – complete with a handwritten note, which was a really nice touch! ♥
They also decided to sponsor this post & support our low carb community here! 🙂
There are 3 flavors: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Ginger Turmeric.
All three varieties are keto and paleo friendly, packed with healthy MCT oils, no sugar, and only a few grams of carbs. They’re made with organic ingredients, they ARE gluten free, plus sugar free and grain free.
They’re sweetened with erythritol and stevia, although they aren’t very sweet – and have no “fake sweet” taste to them at all. Which I really LIKE. They’re more like shortbread to me, with a really nice texture and flavor.
I saved the worst for last, thinking I would definitely NOT like that flavor… and go figure: It turned out to be my FAVORITE! I seriously couldn NOT get enough of that one. I’ll go ahead and tell you which one it is: the Ginger Turmeric cookie. 🙂
It reminds me of gingerbread cookies, with a really nice “spice bite” flavor to it!
As for the chocolate chip and peanut butter FatSnax cookies, I’ll be fair and say I could take them or leave them. But the ginger turmeric? Um, GIVE ME A POUND OF THOSE! 🙂 haha – they are fabulous!!
That said ^ I really like them all three, but I do like to “dress them up” a bit.
Since they’re more like a “shortbread style cookie” they make a really great base for some delicious LCHF treat ideas. 🙂
And let me just say… once you dress these little cookies up, they are a REAL head turner. I mean, I dressed myself up in this cute little turquoise mermaid style dress with 5″ heels and all my best make-up – and the cookies got ALL the attention. 🙄 lol *sigh*
To be totally fair… that plate WAS beautiful:
The peanut butter cookies you see above all dolled up with real butter and fresh raspberries & blueberries – those are my second favorite.
I do like the Peanut Butter FatSnax cookies. They just don’t quite compare to that “JOY in my mouth!” experience I had with the Ginger Turmeric flavor. 😉
We cannot leave out the Chocolate Chip FatSnax, of course…
They’re beautiful little cookies, you have to admit.
The chocolate chip flavor just didn’t really knock my socks off or anything. Although they’re a great treat with coffee! And I confess to eating the ENTIRE box – multiple packs of all three flavors. 😉
The photo that really won everyone over, above or below (same plate), was a treat I enjoyed after our luncheon at a conference I was attending in Orlando recently.
I brought the cookies with me on the trip, along with some other great low carb foods, to make sure I stayed well fed (and on track!) through my entire trip… no matter what options were (or were NOT) offered there.
I had a nice plate from the catered lunch, but also took some butter pats and fresh berries from the spread they put out to enjoy that late afternoon snack – knowing dinner would be LATE that evening:
I was glad I did! That delicious treat got me through a VERY long day.;)
Up to this point I had still not even so much as sniffed the Ginger Turmeric Fatsnax cookies. I kept looking at them sideways, dreading to review them in my mouth, expecting – well, I don’t know what I expected. What IS “turmeric” anyway?! 😛
Then I fell in love…
Let me just show you a close-up of that one:
That just brought tears to my eyes…
… because I’m out of FatSnax. 😛 *sigh*
Anyway – how do I describe the Ginger Turmeric FatSnax cookies? I still have no idea what “turmeric” is, lol. This flavor though, like I said it reminds me of gingerbread cookies – with a bold spice flavor.
This cookie has the MOST flavor of any of their three varieties. I don’t even think I was ever a big fan of gingerbread cookies, at any point in my life, but THESE… I LOVE!
I have such fond memories of this ^ moment. One bite in my mouth, the rest of it in my hand as I took that photo for you. Mmm… 🙂
I would eat ANY of the FatSnax cookie flavors you put in front of me… but I would tackle you for the Ginger Turmeric FatSnax. 😉
I really love that they are SO healthy – organic ingredients, gluten free, paleo and keto friendly, high fat, low carb, grain free, no sugar and packed with healthy MCT oils.
These are a GREAT snack for anyone that cares what they put in their mouth – whether you’re on a diet, diabetic, or just plain health conscious.
I also really admire a company that supports the keto community, and love how friendly the people are that run this company. That goes a LONG way with me!
They are currently developing a number of new products, but only selling the cookies right now – so this is a company to keep an eye on! I highly recommend the cookies, especially Peanut Butter FatSnax or Ginger Turmeric FatSnax.
Here’s where you can find them online:
I hope you enjoyed this little love story – er, my candid review of the brand new FatSnax Cookies that are popping up everywhere in the keto and low carb communities. 🙂
Have you tried them yet?
If so, I would love to hear YOUR thoughts…
… and YOUR favorite flavor.:)
