kookie karma – satisfy your sweet tooth

If you’re like me and your sweet tooth is out of control, then you’ll dig Kookie Karma’s wholesome yummy snacks.


The LA-based bakery is churning out tasty treats free of preservatives and common food allergens like gluten, corn, soy, dairy, butter, sugar, baking soda, eggs, casein and wheat. Kookie Karma uses only fresh, raw and organic ingredients like lemons, figs, cherries nuts, carob and chocolate.

Try the Holistic Chocolate Chip or the Raw Lemon Fig, which the company says tastes like a Fig Newton, only healthier. (All of their products can be ordered on their website.) If you’re into raw foods or if you’re health conscious, vegan, gluten intolerant or simply love gourmet food, then you should try them.
