About a year ago, I met one of the founders of A Better Batch, Hanes Swingle, at a DC VegFest event. With a glimmer in his eye and a smile on his face, he kindly offered me up one of their homemade cookies and I've been in love ever since. A Better Batch is a DC-based vegan cookie company, which is an automatic WIN in my book.
They sent me three flavors to try and I loved everything about them from top to bottom. They package them frozen in boxes with the cookies wrapped in plastic so they stay fresh for like a year! When you open the box, the instructions for baking are right on the inside lid right where you need them. Simply open the plastic, place them on a cookie sheet and bake. That's my kind of baking!
Flavors - loved them all, but my favorite was the Mocha Oatmeal cookies. Chocolate and espresso with chocolate chips -- oh yes, please. They are the perfect chewy texture and the perfect balance of chocolate with chocolate.
The Lemon Poppyseed are fantastically light and airy with a touch of lemon and lots of poppyseed. Another well-balanced flavor.
And then there's your standard Chocolate Chip. Yum.
They use all high quality ingredients of which many are organic, non-GMO, and fair trade. And all are 100% vegan. Are the cookies good for you? No. But, they are cookies and I, for one, am hooked on these. I also love that they suggest that you bring them to a potluck and claim they are yours as each cookie is handmade so they aren't all the same. To order, click here. They sell for $15 per box of 12 -- well worth it in my opinion. Now, those are a better batch of cookies if I do say so myself!
