Doing something a little different today. I want to introduce you all to Goodbody Baked Goods and give you the chance to win some of these treats!! I found this local grain free company at my Whole Foods recently. After visiting their website and reading their story, I knew I wanted to help get the word out about these delicious (hard to not eat the entire bag at once) Cookie Bites and Brownie Bites! I contacted the company and asked if I could do a review and giveaway to make my readers aware of their great product. They were nice enough to send me 5 packages (just what I needed), one of each flavor to try and review. Better yet, they also will be sending one lucky reader a variety box of 5 bags to enjoy as well!!!
You all know how much I love baking, hence all of the recipes for sweets on my site. Susan, the creator seems to be a lot like me. She states on their website: "Goodbody Baked Goods grew out of my passion for fitness, love of baking and commitment to making healthy treats for my family. As a former personal fitness trainer, I’ve long preached the importance of healthy eating. But I also love cookies and brownies as much as anyone else and see no reason that good health and tasty treats should be mutually exclusive." For those of you that know me or are a client of mine, know that I am the first to admit when I have overindulged on goodies and am real when it comes to that!! Speaking of real, Susan and Jeff are the real deal as the owners of Goodbody. I have spoken with them both through email and find myself wanting to go meet them! When you get a chance, go read their story! Susan has overcome tremendous adversity and is such an inspiration!!

Lemon Blueberry Walnut
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip
Mint Chocolate Chip
I enjoyed every single one of these flavors, some a little too much!! I have to say the Almond Butter Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Brownie were my favorite, probably because I love chocolate. You can't ever go wrong when you mix nut butter with chocolate, in my opinion! The Lemon Blueberry Walnut and the Almond Cranberry have great flavor and great crunch. The lemon and almond extracts really come through well. I absolutely enjoyed those, but am not a fruit in my cookies type of gal typically. If you like fruity cookies, be sure to grab both of these! Some people do not like walnuts, but don't let that steer you away, I would have never guessed it was walnuts. It has such a great lemon flavor and I liked the crunch of the nuts in it. I liked the Mint Chocolate Chip, but I'd prefer to mix those two flavors in something like my Dairy Free Mint Chip Ice Cream. Better yet, I should try adding these cookies to my ice cream...yum!!! With that said, I still managed to eat plenty of that flavor as well! One thing that sticks out to me the most, besides being one of the only grain free goodies on the market, is that they use coconut palm sugar instead of agave like so many other companies. Palm sugar is full of benefits where as agave is just as processed and bad for us as HFCS. What I'm trying to convey is that this is a great product all around!
Where can you find them and how can you win them:
They are found in the freezer section at the store and must be kept in the refrigerator or freezer. I think they are best out of the freezer, my favorite way to eat them! They are currently available at Whole Foods Belmar, Washington Park, Southglenn, Superior, Baseline, Pearl and Alfalfa's. Check their website for a couple other smaller markets in the Denver area and for their continued growth. They are also available online at Abe's Market (shipped with cold packs) for all of you that aren't local. I have no doubt they will be available at all Whole Foods one day!
