When one thinks of cookies what comes to mind? Lots of fat, sugar and added calories as that is what is in most cookies. Oh sure they have reduced fat and fat free cookies and most don’t taste very good at all, until I tasted something called Almondina. I was recently sent several samples of Almondina cookies by Jason Markham, Marketing and Sales Director of Almondina/YZ Enterprises, Inc. Almondina cookies have no added fat, cholesterol or salt and are low calorie! They may be low in calories, but they certainly aren’t low in taste. Almondina cookies taste great and my whole family loved them! I even gave some to friends and they loved them as well.
The Almondina Company has been around for more than 20 years. It started off with the grandmother of symphony conductor and gourmet chef, Yuval Zaliouk. His grandmother Dina made cookies called Petit Gateau Sec, but the recipe was always kept a secret until before she died. She then revealed the recipe to Ahuda, who was Yuval’s mother. After about 7 years Yuval started making these cookies in his kitchen and renamed them Almondina, named after his grandmother Dina. This family recipe goes back to 1929.
Almondina cookies are not to be confused with Biscotti. Biscotti’s have to be dipped, Almondina’sdo not, although they go wonderfully with coffee, tea, soft cheeses, wines or just eating them plain as my family and I did.
They come in many flavors and I got to taste their Choconut, Sesame, Gingerspice, Cinnaroma, Chocolate Cherry and Original. They all were quite delicious as they really are packed with so much flavor and no fat.
If you are looking for a delicious low fat cookie, why not give Almondina a try!
