Erin Baker's Wholesome Baked Goods Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to share with all of you my newest favorite treat of all time - Erin Baker's Organic Double Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites! Not only are these absolutely delicious, but they are certified organic, trans fat free, and less than 100 calories!!!!! Can you believe that? If you tasted them, you would not believe it. They are better than most brownies I have eaten and they are wayyyyyyyyy healthier.

Did you know that most brownies and baked goods you will find at bakeries and in packaged containers contain trans fats, which are just plain disgusting and bad for you. They are made when people take a perfectly good oil and use partial hydrogenation to turn it into a bad oil. This process is used to make the oil more solid; provide longer shelf-life in baked products; provide longer fry-life for cooking oils, and provide a certain kind of texture or "mouthfeel."  What they don't care about is what that does to your health. Bad trans fats can screw up your cholesterol, clog your arteries, contribute to insulin resistance and diabetes and contribute to even more health problems. Watch out for them!

If you are like me, when you find a yummy treat like this, you check the ingredients and see what is making it taste so good. I am happy to tell you that these Brownie Bites start out with organic unbleached wheat flour, organic raisin puree, and organic chocolate chips. They also have other organic ingredients like expeller pressed canola oil, vanilla extract and molasses. These are all real food ingredients, not chemicals or icky preservatives.

This isn't surprising at all, when you see what the mission at Erin Baker's is: "To Handcraft and Bake to Order in Small Batches with Simple, Wholesome Ingredients…Promising Homemade Freshness, Flavor and Quality." They are passionate about baking the healthy way. Using only the freshest wholesome ingredients they are able to create all natural products of exceptional quality. Everything they make is baked to order ensuring homemade freshness.

I have also tried their Original Breakfast Cookies Baked fresh with heart-healthy whole grains and sweetened with fruit puree, their cookies combine the flavors we all love with a heartiness that satisfies for hours. Packed with protein, antioxidants, fiber and complex carbohydrates, it is a healthy and delicious way to start your day. I tried out their caramel apple, oatmeal raisin and double chocolate chunk. They were all very delicious. These are not a tiny cookie, either. I took a picture next to a regular sized pen to show you their size.


The next time you have a craving for chocolate brownies, head on over to Erin Baker's and order yourself some. They are definitely worth it! They are $4.49 for a box of 8 Brownie Bites.

One lucky reader of mine will win a sample pack of the products I have reviewed: Double Chocolate Chip Brownie Bites, Double Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookie, Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookie, and a Caramel Apple Breakfast Cookie. You lucky duck!!
