"Low-cal desserts always win big in our book, and four of these little cookies will edge off a sweet tooth better than any 100-calorie pack.
Plus, the cookies keep a just-out-of-the-cookie-jar taste and a little dose of figure-friendly fiber in each bite."
"Every once in a while I find a treat that gets an A for taste and then goes above and beyond for
a little healthy extra credit...My favorite flavor is the slightly-sweet, slightly-salty Goji Almond Oat variety.
My favorite part? I can eat up to eight of the nutritious treats and still stay within my 200 calorie treat range"

your family, who enjoy letting the ingredients speak for themselves as nature intended, these are worth a try.”

a couple of whole-grain crackers and some hummus, a hard-boiled egg or 2 Goji Gourmet
cookies with organic skim milk) will stabilize your blood sugar and make you much less
likely to overeat later,"

"Although I try to make my food cleansing program, Joulebody Kickstart, dairy and gluten free, I strongly believe in the Goji Gourmet product and give up alternative solutions for my client's "balance" dessert. The ingredients are most important to me and the use of turmeric and goji berries with no processed ingredients totally out weighs the fact that wheat or eggs are used in the recipe. I am always confident that Goji cookies are what my clients need at the end of a long day of eating and drinking cleansing, vegan based meals."
