Kashi Cookies

10 Comments 1469 views

Kashi CookiesHave you seen these yet? If not, count yourself lucky! They are too good! I mean it, TOO GOOD! I’ve only had the Oatmeal Dark Chocolate, but they also come in Happy Trail Mix, Oatmeal Raisin Flax.

One whole grain cookie has 130 calories, 5 g of fat and 3 g of fiber. They are a good size but it’s hard to eat just one.

The toddler LOVES them and I like that fact I can feel good about letting him have a cookie after dinner that has at least some nutritional value. The only problem, I also have one, two, or four!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I have actually tried all three varieties. They are ALL good, but my favorite is the trailmix.

    I love the oatmeal. I get them at Cosco really cheap. They only carry the oatmeal.

    It’s funny that I should come home from grocery shopping to read this, because I just saw those for the first time, picked them up, read the nutritional information, NEARLY put them in my cart and then put them back on the shelf because I figured I’d have too hard a time just eating one! LOL

    Good to know I probably did the right thing for me. :-)

    Mmmm those look good. I think I need to pick up a box of those next time I’m at the store….although eating just ONE cookie is definitely not a strength of mine.

    Hell yes, these are fricken EVIL! I bought them last week and gave the rest to my kids and the day care kids, I could not handle knowing they were in the cabinet.

    Roni,

    Having to be aware of cholesterol and overall heath of ingredients, I had to chuck the Fiber One bars but I love the Kashi brand treats! I have found another really good snack too…..Kellogg’s Smart Start Healthy Heart Bars (Strawberry Vanilla)….very yummy…thought I’d share my discovery!

    Where would I be without Kashi??? Roni, if you haven’t tried their Blueberry Waffles, you must! 2 waffles with 1/4 cup sugar-free Mrs. Buttersworth syrup…4 points and very yummy and very filling!

    I do love the taste of these cookies, as well as knowing how healthy the ingredients are. But I have one BIG problem: GAS!! I’m not one to get gas from much anything but a platefull of beans, but after having just two cookies one afternoon, the gas pains were so bad that evening that I couldn’t stand up straight. Not being sure the gas was related to the cookies (and far too weak to resist having them again), I ate two cookies one afternoon a few weeks later, and bingo – same thing. As I was doubled over in pain, my kids asked if they should call 911. Anyone else?

    Consumers beware: regarding gas pains, I just read on Wikipedia that chicory root extract contains inulin–> “…in the colon, bacteria metabolise inulin, with the release of significant quantities of carbon dioxide, hydrogen and/or methane. Inulin-containing foods can be rather gassy, particularly for those unaccustomed to inulin, and these foods should be consumed in moderation at first.”
