"Can Audrey's Chia Cookies Boost Your Health and Taste Buds at the Same Time?"

Chia Cookies

If you’re looking for a healthy treat, Audrey’s Chia Cookies are worth picking up.  These cookies were created by a passionate, health enthusiast named Audrey whose goal was to share the superfood benefits of chia seeds with as many people as possible.  To do that, she created a line of crunchy, flavorful cookies that included a healthy dose of chia seeds.


Chia seeds are known for containing a variety of nutrients including fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants.  These chia seed superfoods contain nutrients that have been shown to be beneficial against inflammation, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, digestive disorders and more.  Chia seeds are one of the foods known to contain all nine of the essential amino acids.  Essential amino acids are the amino acids that are not synthesized in your body.  They must be consumed from a food source. 

I tried all four flavors of Audrey’s Chia Cookies, and they did not disappoint.  Here’s how each flavor stacked up.


Lemon:  The ingredients in the Lemon Chia Cookies are as follows: Enriched Wheat Flour, Butter, Cane Sugar, Black Chia Seeds, Lemon Extract, Water, Vanilla Extract, Salt, Baking Soda.  There are 7 grams of sugar in 4 cookies.


The Lemon Chia Cookies have a fantastic flavor.  The cookie is light and crispy.  It reminds me of a shortbread cookie crossed with sugar cookie.  There is a nice, light crunch from the chia seeds.  The chia seeds are soft and dissolve quickly.  There is also a bright lemon flavor that melts in your mouth as each luxurious bite dissolves.


Almond: The ingredients in the Almond Chia Cookies are as follows: Enriched Wheat Flour, Butter, Cane Sugar, Black Chia Seeds, Almond Extract, Water, Vanilla Extract, Salt, Baking Soda.  There are 7 grams of sugar in 4 cookies.


The flavor of the Almond Chia Cookies is also excellent and very similar to the Lemon Chia Cookies.  The Almond Chia Cookies also have a light and crispy quality.  They have the same shortbread cookie crossed with sugar cookie flavor.  The chia seeds are soft, dissolve quickly and have a nice, light crunch.  The Almond Chia cookies still melt in your mouth, but they have a beautiful, well-balanced almond flavor that stands out instead of lemon.

 

Chocolate Chip: The ingredients in the Chocolate Chip Chia cookies are as follows: Enriched Wheat Flour, Butter, Cane Sugar, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Black Chia Seed, Vanilla Extract, Salt, Baking Soda.  There are 9 grams of sugar in 4 cookies.


The flavor of the Chocolate Chip Chia Cookies is that of a crispy shortbread cookie.  They are slightly heavier than the Almond or Lemon cookies.  There is still a nice light crunch from the chia seeds, which are soft and dissolve quickly.  The Chocolate Chip Chia Cookies contain a nice burst of chocolate from the miniature chocolate chips.  You can separate the mild chia flavor from the chocolate chips, but the two flavors complement each other well while each bite dissolves in your mouth.


Crispy Brownie was the final flavor: The Crispy Brownie Chia Cookies contain the following ingredients: Unsalted Butter, Cane Sugar, Enriched Wheat Flour, Mini Chocolate Chips, Brown Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Chia Seeds, Salt, Baking Soda.  There are 11 grams of sugar in 3-4 cookies.


The flavor of the Crispy Brownie Chia Cookies varied the most from the other three cookies.  The shortbread cookie crossed with sugar cookie flavor was still present, along with the light melt in your mouth consistency.  Beyond that, there is a very rich, chocolatey flavor mingled with the crunch of the chia seeds.  The flavor of the chia seeds is very mild and mostly hidden by the chocolate.  You can notice the flavor of the chia seeds if you have discerning tastebuds, otherwise, they disappear except for the slight crunchy texture.


Each bag of cookies says “By adding chia to our crisp, crunchy cookies, we created a snack that fuels the body while satisfying the cravings for a sweet, indulgent treat.  Treat yourself better!”  I believe they have successfully accomplished this goal with every cookie flavor.  The cookies are delightfully satisfying and full of flavor.  If you enjoy a crispy cookie or are looking for a tasty way to get a dose of chia seeds, these cookies will fill the bill and leave your tastebuds smiling. Look for Audrey's Chia Cookies in your local grocery store or on their website Audreyschia.com.
