About Yes! To Cookies:
If Love could be listed as an ingredient, it would be the very first one found on the Yes! To Cookies box. Yes! To Cookies is a healthy and delicious recipe created through one mans love for a woman. Not just a woman, but one with severe insulin-dependent diabetes.
Confronted by this unforgiving disease and heart-broken by her constant battles with the exhausting ups and downs of brittle diabetes, he knew he had to do something.
She had tried every recommended diet and every artificial sweetener on the supermarket shelf without success. Yet he believed there was something that could nutritionally work to her betterment; something to combat the rapid sugar spikes and plunges she endured on a daily basis and give her the wiggle-room in her diet that she craved.
The low-calorie, artificially sweetened products available had never quite tasted right to either of them, worse yet they were contributing to her unpredictable blood sugar swings. He decided he could do better.
He knew that he could not use starch and sugar. Foods with these ingredients always caused his sweetheart to have unpredictable high blood sugars followed by scary low blood sugar crashes. He had never heard of baking without starch but he knew that he had to try, and he had an idea! What if he left out the starch and used fiber instead?
What is special about Yes! To Cookies ?
(Taken from the package)
Mmmmm, Chewy, Crunchy, mouth-watering gluten free cookies. Yes! To Cookies is sweetened with erythiritol and rebaudioside A-Stevia. These sweeteners have no signigicant effect on blood sugar or calories consumed. They also do not cause the gastric problems of many sugar alcohols.

Yes! To Cookies was generous enough to provide me with samples of their delicious, ready-to-eat Cocoa-Liscious and Strawberry-Banana Blitz flavors for review. I was a little worried at first. I thought, "Hmm, a cookie with NO sugar?" I wonder how that will taste. So, I opened the package and smelled them! (I know I'm weird) And they smelled Yummy!
Next came the taste test.
Little bite.Little bite.Swallow.
