Cookies you don’t have to think twice about.
Raise your hand if you have a major sweet tooth! Looking for my hand? You’ll find it in the clouds. I’m a sweets addict. Never in a million years will you catch me going a day without something sweet. Heck, I can’t even get through a meal without a sweet topper.
As I’ve become more and more aware of the importance of making healthy choices, it’s been harder and harder for me to justify my need to satisfy my sweet tooth. Not to mention, my poor tummy just can’t handle a lot of what I put in it; dairy, gluten, excessive sugar. So what’s a die-hard sweet tooth and self-proclaimed cookie monster to do?
Turn to Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies, Of Course!
I first found these cookies the way I find many things: my fav bloggers on Instagram. After learning how clean these cookies were, I knew I had to get my hands on them to put them to the CO test! If there’s one thing we can all agree on, you never know if a “clean” dessert is going to be as good as the real thing.

Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies…Get in My Belly
Let’s talk ingredients. Did you guys see how scrumptiously clean those ingredients are? All organic and nothing that you have to stumble over! No dairy…no gluten…nothing to irritate your precious tummy. Now that’s a dessert I can get behind again, and again!
How do all those ingredients playout in the nutrition facts, though? See the image below! Nothing to fret about here. The only thing I get hung up on is eating just one serving size…
Let’s Talk Flavors
Unfortunately, my local Whole Foods doesn’t carry every flavor of these delectable cookies. Thankfully, they have three out of the six flavors so of course, I’ve had every one of those…obvi.
Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies are available in vanilla bean, dark cacao, chocolate chip, lemon ginger, raspberry, and peanut butter. I’ve welcomed vanilla bean, dark cacao and chocolate chip many-a-times to my shopping cart. #sorrynotsorry
Emmy’s Organic Coconut Cookies Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean
Let’s kill two birds with one stone here. The vanilla bean and chocolate chip flavors are the same, just one of them has chocolate chips and the other doesn’t. The vanilla bean base flavor is to die for. Super yummy and not too sweet.
One thing to note: these cookies don’t have your typical cookie texture. To me, they remind me of some of those no-bake cookies I used to make with my friends back in the day. They’re soft, moist and a little chewy. The coconut is very prevalent (hence the name Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies!), but not too overpowering. That being said, if you don’t like the texture of coconut, you won’t like these cookies. (That’s okay…more for me!)
Emmy’s Organic Coconut Cookies Dark Cacao
All you chocolate lovers out there…go get a bag of these. Right now. Just do it. The dark cacao in these cookies is just perfect. Not too bitter…not too sweet…just so dang good.
These cookies have found a permanent place in my pantry and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
You’re thinking… “These Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies…they all sound so good, Sam. Which ones should I try first?”
Honestly, I’m not sure you can go wrong with any of the flavors, but my personal favorite is the chocolate chip. You can’t go wrong with a vanilla base and a mix of chocolate. There’s really nothing better!
I don’t think there’s a single bad thing I can say about these cookies. Which means they definitely deserve the CO stamp of approval…obviously.
Next, I HAVE to try the peanut butter flavor. Has anyone tried them yet? Should I go for it?
