Looking for a sweet treat that is healthier than a chocolate bar? Trying to satisfy your cravings while keeping your goal to clean up your diet on track?
Here’s an option – Koukla Delights Macaroons! I first tried these coconut treats on the day of Meghan and Harry’s wedding(!) and they have become a regular indulgence ever since!
I love the simple list of ingredients. For instance, my favourite flavour, Matcha Tea Macaroons, contains Organic coconut, organic maple syrup, matcha green tea powder, vanilla extract, Himalayan salt, spirulina. There are no trans fats, no refined sugar, and the ingredients are certified organic and gluten-free. That’s a lot to pack into small two-bite cookies, but Koukla manages to do it all – and make it taste amazing in the process!
The texture of these cookies is also unique, reminiscent of coconut macaroons but denser with a finer coconut that is well-blended. The flavours are not over-powering, either; there is no grassy flavour to the Matcha Tea and the Vanilla Coconut tastes very much like a vanilla shortbread cookie!
While I usually opt for the Matcha Tea flavour, Koukla also offers a variety of flavours to choose from, including Vanilla Coconut, Cacao Coconut, Match Cacao Nibs, and Cranberry Maple Granola.
Quality food does come at a higher price, however, and these treats aren’t exactly cheap. The macaroons come in two sizes: a large pouch and a two cookie snack size. The best place to buy these is Farm Boy – definitely the cheapest and they routinely put them on sale for $1 off about once every few weeks. Home Sense sometimes carries the brand, too. Online retailers include Well.ca, the Koukla website, and Amazon. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
