    Grass-Fed Butter

    Cows naturally eat grass. Unfortunately, as grain, soy and corn is less expensive, most commercial dairy cows in the US are fed a diet that isn’t ideal for their health or for the quality of the milk they produce. Research demonstrates that butter produced from cows fed diets high in grass instead of grain has more nutrients. Grass-fed butter has a healthier omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, has significantly more conjugated linoleic acid, is richer in antioxidants, and has higher levels of butyrate, lecithin, iodine, beta carotene, selenium and numerous vitamins including D, K, A, and K2.

    Monk Fruit

    Luo han guo or monk fruit, named for the Buddhist monks who first cultivated it in Southern China and Northern Thailand around 800 years ago, has been used medicinally for centuries. In addition to its sweet taste, Monk Fruit is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The FDA approved this no calorie, no sugar natural sweetener derived from the vine grown fruits in 2010, and it’s quickly becoming a mainstream alternative to sugar as well as other plant-based sweeteners (like stevia that many feel have an undesirable aftertaste.) Although in its natural form monk fruit contains fructose and glucose, its sweetness comes from unique antioxidants called mogrosides, rather than from its juice. During the process of removing the skin and seeds, collecting the juice and creating a powder, the mogrosides separate, leaving the monk fruit extract free of fructose or glucose, and thus void of all sugars and calories. As this sweetener can be up to 250 times sweeter than table sugar, like many other manufacturers, the monk fruit we use is combined with erythritol to lessen the intensity of sweetness.

    Almond Flour

    Almond flour is an ingredient that we love here at The Cookie Department, because it makes our job of making cookies with added benefits super easy! Simply ground up blanched almonds with the skin removed, almond flour is high in protein, low in carbs and rich in fiber, manganese, magnesium, monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, and antioxidants. Almond flour is a great option for those with gluten or grain sensitivities, as well as those simply looking for a healthier or low carb approach to baked goods.

    Farm Fresh Eggs

    Eggs, considered a ‘complete’ source of protein because they contain all nine essential amino acids, pack a nutrition packed punch! In our cookies we use the whole egg, so you get the nutritional benefits of vitamins B2, B6, B12, A, D, E and K, as well as minerals selenium, zinc, iron and copper and the heart health promoting nutrients of betaine and choline.

    Cocoa Powder

    Oats make our cookies super-satisfying because they are an excellent source of fiber and protein, but besides that, they also bring a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to the table. Oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. They can help you lower your cholesterol, reduce your blood sugar levels, and improve the growth of good bacteria in your gut.

    Heavy Cream

    Heavy cream and other full-fat dairy contain many health-boosting vitamins and minerals, including the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. In fact, full-fat dairy products contain more fat-soluble vitamins than low-fat and fat-free dairy products. In addition your body absorbs fat-soluble vitamins better when they are consumed with fat, such as the fat found in heavy whipping cream. Some studies have also found that full-fat dairy products are associated with a decreased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease

    Edible Sprinkles

    Made from gum arabic and food colorants most consumers refer to as “natural,” such as cabbage juice, turmeric, and radish, the sprinkles we use are free of palm oil and wax. They also contain zero sugar which make the perfect keto birthday cake cookies.
