Voortman Flax Seed Omega 3 Cookies

I have decided that my sweet tooth is bigger than all of my other teeth combined. With that determination, I attempt to make my sweet treats as healthy as possible. Therefore, when I stumbled upon Voortman Flax Seed Omega 3 Cookies, I knew they were a must-try. To tell you the truth, the name does not make them sound too appealing, but I am always open to new food products.

Each cookie is golden brown and appears to be thin and crispy, but, on the contrary, they are delightfully chewy, with a slight crumble and a perfectly subtle, yet tasty sweetness. As the name suggests, Voortman Flax Seed Omega 3 Cookies do have flax seed in them which provides 700 mg ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids per cookie. The flax seeds, a prominent ingredient, are dispersed throughout the luscious batter; but blend into each bite, rather than adding a crunchy textural difference.

Each individual package of Voortman Flax Seed Omega 3 Cookies comes with two cookies, which unlike Fiber One Toaster Pastries, makes for one serving instead of two. Each 35 gram serving contains 160 calories, 6 grams of total fat and 1 gram of saturated fat (9% & 5% of the daily value respectively), no cholesterol, 170 mg of sodium (7% of the RDA), 2 grams of fiber (7% of the RDA), 9 grams of sugar (which contribute to the 21 grams of carbohydrates) and 3 grams of protein.

The ingredient list is just simple enough, consisting of wholesome ingredients. I do wish however, that Voortman's would utilize whole wheat flour (as opposed to enriched wheat flour). Overall, I have think that Voortman Flax Seed Omega 3 Cookies make for a fairly hearty snack or dessert and satisfy my sweet tooth, all while fitting into my healthy dietary regime. However, fitting into my budget is another story. Twelve individually wrapped twin packs set me back a little more than $5.00. Nonetheless, these delicious and somewhat healthy cookies will definitely make it into my grocery cart again.
