Women over 30 ( not that I am already 30 – well not atleast for a month) usually become more conscious of their diet because of their desire to remain fit and healthy even when their metabolic rate starts to slow down. As such, low fat and low calorie food items became staples and munching on sweet and tasty treats like cookies and chocolates are often seen as guilty pleasures. At least that was before I discovered some healthy cookies that allow me to munch without the guilt, the Almondina Cookies.
These thin and light cookies, are made from a secret recipe handed down by Grandma Dina. They are made from all natural ingredients with no cholesterol, no preservatives, and no added salt or fat. The original flavor was a cookie richly filled with almonds and raisins. I absolutely love the crunch and texture created by the raisin and almonds. The lightly sweet taste of the cookie and the flavorful blend of almonds and raisins can keep you munching on the whole pack without realizing it. It can be paired with hot drinks like tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, and also tastes good when dipped in cheese, ice cream, jam or my favorite spread Nutella.
Aside from the Original Flavor, Almondina Cookies are also available in Choconut, Cinnaroma, Gingerspice, Almonduo, Bran Treats, Sesame, Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate Dipped, Yogurt Dipped Almondina, and Milk Chocolate Almondina. The sweet tooth in me naturally fell in love with the Chocolate Cherry and Chocolate Dipped varieties but, my husband and I both love their Classic and Almonduo flavors.
Maintaining healthy eating habits becomes easier and more fun when you can share healthy and flavorful treats with the people you love. Munching on Almondina Cookies is definitely a great way to enjoy a healthy habit.
