At the $0.99 Cents store the other day I was delighted to find Back to Nature Crispy Oatmeal Cookies. I have seen them many times on the shelves of my neighborhood grocery store, but for some reason I hadn't tried these before - and I've tried many, many Back to Nature goodies.
Can you say delicious delights three times fast? You better learn how if you plan on eating these cookies. Most of the time, when you find an oatmeal cookie, you also find chewy raisins, but not with Back to Nature's variety. One bite into these crispy cookies relinquishes a subtly sweet, honey-like taste. The crunchy cookie snaps with each bite and turns into a smooth and sinful tasting mouthful. Though there are no gooey raisins dispersed throughout the batter, the raisins make a slight appearance in the form of raisin paste, which adds a hint of natural sweetness to the cookies.
A serving of 2 Back to Nature Crispy Oatmeal Cookies provides 120 calories, 8% off the daily value for total fat, no saturated fat, less than one gram of fiber, 8 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein. The ingredient list is very basic, which is appreciated, but alas, Back to Nature uses unbleached enriched flour. The benefits of choosing these cookies over the average brand is the use of non-hydrogenated oils, no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors, no high fructose corn syrup, plus the use of unrefined sugar, natural rolled oats, real honey and just a touch of cinnamon to finish it off.
I have seen Back to Nature Crispy Oatmeal Cookies on sale for as low as $2.50. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed these cookies and could see myself buying them again. But curiously, a 25 gram Nutridel Almond Cookie provides half the calories - 59 calories and 2 grams of fat - which means, these will definitely have the upper hand when I'm on the hunt for cookies. And Nutridel cookies are made with all natural ingredients as well.
