Can Cookies be Tasty, Nutritious, and Vegan? This Cookie Brand Shows How to Have Your Cookie and Eat It Too!

There’s a popular belief in today’s world that cookies and nutritious ingredients can’t possibly both come from the same food groups. But that’s just not the case. Rather than focusing on counting calories and sugar content, brands like Maxine’s Heavenly look at what makes food healthy, and then curate the most nutrient-packed ingredients for their cookies.

Substituting Empty Calories with Nutrient-Dense Ingredients

“Plant-based, nutritional power-house foods are the strongest things you can put in your body.” – Robert Petrarca, Co-Founder of Maxine’s Heavenly

With the abundance of information now available on clean eating and food sensitivities, you may not even consider cookies as a treat you would incorporate into your diet. That is exactly why the co-founders of Maxine’s Heavenly, Tim Miller and Robert Petrarca, have replaced the animal-based products and the processed flours, sugars, and gluten that are generally found in mainstream cookies. Instead, they use tasty substitutes like brown rice flour, gluten-free oats, flax seeds, sunflower lecithin and coconut sugar, which create a healthier, more nutritious cookie base.

Cookies that Remind You of Home

Maxine’s Heavenly cookies are soft-baked, gluten-free, soy-free, and verified non-GMO. Sweet little treasures of vegan yumminess. Their journey started with Tim Miller’s mom, Maxine. She loved testing out new recipes on her family, incorporating flavors and ingredients that weren’t always traditionally paired together. She would even browse newspapers, magazines and cookbooks for added inspiration. But over the years, one cookie recipe in particular made its way into her family’s heart. Those were the cookies that Tim made for his family when he wanted to pay homage to his mom, the same cookies which then inspired him to create Maxine’s Heavenly.

With a healthy lifestyle goal in mind, Tim developed a recipe that preserved the magic of freshly baked cookies while using all healthy, vegan ingredients. The team at Maxine’s Heavenly embraces the challenge to continue making healthy treats, and is driven to curate the ingredients that will help them do just that.
