#FirstImpressions Of Whole Foods’ Bajra-Jaggery Cookies
Whole Foods’ Bajra-Jaggery Cookies offer a complete package in many ways.
The box, a brown, plain cardboard case is simple, yet artisanal. But don’t mistake ‘simplicity’ for low-quality. These Bajra-Jaggery Cookies by Whole Foods, are, in fact, delicious and boast of a healthy list of ingredients too.
There is no use of palm oil – used commonly in commercial biscuits and cookies, jaggery is used instead of refined sugar or other commercial sweeteners, there is also no use of any preservatives of any kind. The base flour comes from bajra, no refined flour (maida) is used.
But can things be healthy, without being tasty? Don’t we often associate ‘healthy food’ with boring, bland flavors? Fortunately, that’s not the case here, at all.
Whole Foods’ Bajra-Jaggery Cookies taste really good. These are mildly sweet, and not over sugary. Texture-wise, these aren’t crisp or buttery like commercial cookies, but we aren’t complaining. There is a certain wholesome-ness you get along with every bite. While millet-based cookies can often be dry and brittle, these cookies offer a fine balance of crunch and bite.
Whole Foods’ Bajra-Jaggery Cookies are not for everyone, they are meant for a slightly experienced palate and a good find for people who are consciously looking for gluten-free cookies that don’t feel or taste like cardboard!
A great choice for the celiacs and health-food aficionados amongst us.
