Before we begin today’s post, let me begin with a question:
I know, I know, it’s an old joke, but it still cracks me up. Needless to say, today, we are going to talk about one of my most favorite topics: chocolate chip cookies! What makes today’s chocolate chip cookies is that they are keto-friendly, low-carb, and sugar-free. As if chocolate chip cookies are not hard enough to resist as they are, now this.
Chocolate chip cookies are everyone’s favorite snack. They are definitely an all-time favorite. Once, as a child, I remember actually crying after finding out that my dad and brother ate all the cookies after coming home from a long day in school. It was borderline criminal for me back then that they hadn’t even thought of setting aside a piece or two for me knowing full well that I love my cookies! Obviously, many years have passed, but I still feel the pain like it was just yesterday.
I stayed away from chocolate chip cookies for many months for fear that I would break out. It was almost a herculean commitment to pull off, but whenever I think of the pain caused by acne, my hankering for chocolate chip cookies would immediately be quashed.
I was at a get together with my friends and someone brought chocolate chip cookies. I was feeling particularly “strong” that day and was able to resist the temptation. One of my friends was shocked as they all know I am not one to refuse chocolate chip cookies. I told them all about my previous acne predicament and how it was caused by too much sugar from the cookies. I also told her that I have to discipline myself as eating chocolate chip cookies does not exactly champion my fitness goals. My friend totally got it and proudly said, “I have the answer to your problem, you know.” That, my dear readers, was how I was introduced to the beauty and deliciousness of Fat Snax’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.
My friend immediately took out her phone and sent me a photo to this fantastic Chocolate Chip Cookie. What caught my attention the fact that it is sugar-free. But before I placed them in my cart, I did my due diligence and researched about the company and the product. Let’s get to know Fat Snax and their very own chocolate chip cookies.
Fat Snax was born out of necessity. Its founder, Jeff Frese, began his journey in the ketogenic diet in 2015. He is based in New York City and back then, there weren’t a lot of choices when it comes to snack items. The necessity grew bigger when he found out that his friends who were also on keto also had the same predicament. He started making his own snack items. He soon noticed that his friends were regularly raiding through his snack supply, and that was how Fat Snax was born.
Fat Snax is dedicated to making snack items that are keto-friendly and low-carb. They want to feed those who are making an effort to make a lifestyle change enjoy food without feeling guilty. They take pride in using ingredients like almond and coconut flour and even grass-fed butter. Fat Snax’s slogan? Eat fat to get fit. Fat Snax’s very first baby? Their chocolate chip cookies.

After doing my research, I decided that nothing can stop me from buying these babies, so into my cart they went. Fat Snax’s cookies come in two sizes: 6-pack and 12-pack. I went and indulged myself; I bought the 12-pack.
My order arrived in good condition. No cookies were crushed. It was well-packaged. I did not wait any longer and helped myself to a pack right away! The first taste that I detected was coconut. This was something I expected since I am aware that it was made with coconut flour. I read some reviews that they didn’t detect it, but I did. What surprised me was its feel in my mouth. To be honest, I was expecting that the cookie would be hard, but to my surprise, they were soft. I also love how the flavor of the cookie and the chocolate chip just marry naturally.
I read that there is no need to refrigerate the cookies. However, I do not want my chocolate chips to melt, so I refrigerated my box. Guess what, they were still very soft the following day! Unlike the other chocolate chip cookies I have had before, Fat Snax’s cookies remain the same in terms of texture and “chewability”. I like that it doesn’t harden after a night or two in the refrigerator.
All in all, Fat Snax’s Chocolate Chip Cookies have surpassed my healthy cookie expectations. I’m not going to lie, I lowered my cookie standards thinking that I’m sacrificing sugar and other things that supposedly make regular cookies delicious, but was I proven wrong. I realized that I should have more faith knowing that the people in the food and health industry are certainly upping their game!
