Caveman Cookies Review




Caveman Cookies, a paleo-diet friendly treat, is adding a new flavor to their brand: Rainforest.
Rainforest Caveman Cookies include ingredients a caveman in the Amazon might have enjoyed. The cookies feature an exotic combination of Brazil nuts and chewy dried cherries, with a kick of cayenne pepper. The other ingredients are honey, almond meal, chopped almonds and nutmeg, making this an all-natural snack. Buy Caveman Cookies online here.

Caveman Cookies come in Original Caveman, Tropical Caveman, and Alpine Caveman, they are:

• Made with nuts, honey and berries
• Certified Gluten-Free
• Dairy-Free
• A good source of protein
• Kosher Certified
• Just 65-75 calories per cookie (depending on the variety)
• Consistent with the principles of the Paleolithic Diet (aka the “Caveman Diet”)
• Satisfying due to the protein, dietary fiber, and good fats that they contain
 
The Caveman Bakery is a small company based in New York City, dedicated to creating unique, healthful and tasty treats that are consistent with the principles of the Paleolithic Diet (aka the "Caveman Diet").


With many nutritionists tracing serious health problems to the ingestion of refined sugars trans fats, salt and high-glycemic carbohydrates, the gluten-free, Paleolithic Diet is gaining in popularity beyond the health food store and into mainstream groceries and online retailers.


I was sent to of their flavors, the Rainforest and Alpine. The Rainforest cookies are made with honey, almond meal, brazil nut meal, chopped almonds, dried cherries, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper. They have a taste of a spice cookie and the cayenne will subtly hit your throat later on. I would have liked these cookies more if there wasn't cayenne in them.

The Apline cookies have honey, hazelnut meal, almond meal, toasted ground carob in them. These are like a chocolate and nut flavor, and were my favorite of the two.

Follow along with them on Facebook and Twitter also.

Hi Lynette,
These cookies are a dense, a little sticky, chewy kind of cookie. =)

I probably wouldn't enjoy cayenne in my cookies either...but the Alpine ones sound yummy! =)

Hmmm I've seen some recipes around with Cayenne in cookies, not sure I'd like them. I like how healthy they are though!
