Alternative Baking Company is on a mission—to try and make the dairy and meat industry obsolete by using vegan alternatives to their delicious baked goods. Sans dairy, eggs, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, cholesterol, animal ingredients, and refined sugar, these cookies still provide the taste and quality of a traditional homemade cookie. Organic flour, organic sugar, and fruit juice make up the basic ingredients for these cookies made in small, homemade batches. In addition to their gluten-free flavors, Alternative Baking Company also has a wheat free line of cookies, currently available in four flavors.

The Coconut Fantasy flavor includes gluten free flour, organic unrefined sugar, fruit juice and natural grain dextrins, water, palm oil, coconut, chocolate chips, natural tapioca and potato starches, vanilla and sea salt. Even with the absence of any meat or dairy product in their baked goods, The Alternative Baking Company still somehow manages to create a soft and chewy cookie that can be easily enjoyed by anyone.

Taste:  I’m not a stranger when it comes to the Alternative Baking Company’s line of cookies. I love chewy cookies, and this particular line is known for the soft texture, as well as their delicious spin on traditional cookie flavors (if you love the taste of cookie dough, try the Vanilla Bean flavor. Dead ringer!). With that said, the new Coconut Fantasy flavor does not disappoint at all. At 260 calories per serving, it’s a bit of a splurge on the diet but an appealing one at that! This particular flavor is full of textures to keep your mouth guessing with every bite. At any given moment a chocolate chip or fleck of coconut could provide a burst of flavor to contribute to the cookie’s signature chewiness. What I love about this flavor is that the coconut flakes are not overdone at all, and the same could be said with the portion of chocolate chips in each serving. Both the chocolate chips and coconut flakes balance out perfectly to provide the subtle sweetness and slight crunch to this cookie.  Interesting and great flavor from Alternative Baking Company!

Labeling:  Individually packaged cookie with logo and product name on front, nutritional value on the back.
