I love to bake cookies. I love eating cookies even more than I love baking them, so I occasionally buy cookie baking mixes -- but I always feel guilty about it because I know I can bake a better tasting cookie without all the artificial ingredients and preservatives in store-bought cookies mixes.
If you want a cookie mix with ingredients that you can actually pronounce, check out Among Friends baking mixes. Their handcrafted baking mixes are filled with real, non-GMO ingredients that actually belong in a kitchen cupboard. Their cookies are high in protein, low in sugar and low in fiber, and a few of them are made with gluten-free ingredients.
Among Friends sent me a pack of their Suzie Q. cookie mix (all their mixes are named after their friends; this one is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix), and I asked The Pea to bake the cookies for me.
The dry mix comes in a bag and contains flour, chocolate chips, sugar, baking soda, flax seed and salt. The only ingredient I didn't recognize was soy lecithin. All you have to add is an egg and butter (vanilla is optional), and mix it up.
