Healthy, delicious cookies – is there such a thing? We would’ve said nah and balked at the idea, that is, until New Moon Kitchen came along and changed our minds. The all-natural gourmet bakery boasts biscuits completely free of all dairy, eggs, nuts, and peanuts. They’re kosher, too. Every delectable cookie contains no cholesterol, no preservatives and you can probably pronounce every ingredient that goes into each bite. But do they taste good? Oh, do they ever.

A big, big hug today comes in the form of these ginger cookies, made by loving hands and hearts. We can all make a difference by putting our light and goodness in the world. Now is the time! Power to the People! #worldpeace #cookiesforpeace #everyonedeservescookies #makeadifference #shineyourlight #newmooncookies
We were lucky enough to get a few boxes sent to the office for, you know, official taste testing and research purposes. And you know what? Every flavour was a hit. In fact, everyone on the team had a different favourite.
What did we try? Chocolate Chip, made with chewy oats and just the right amount of chocolate chip sweetness; Bite Me!, a crunchy oatmeal cookie filled with seeds, oats and raisins; Goldies, a classic vanilla oatmeal cookie perfect with a spot of tea; MoMints, brownie double chocolate and an organic peppermint bite; Ginger Snappers, a fiery ginger cookie with a true ginger kick; and finally, Mackies, a gluten-free decadent coconut chocolate.
Two other flavours make up the New Moon lineup: Mokas, a mix of espresso, chocolate and cinnamon and Lovebites, a spicy dark double chocolate with hints of orange and vanilla. We can’t tell you how good those ones are personally, but if the previous six flavours were any indication, then these babies are surefire hits too.
Eden Herzog, a passionate vegan baker who started New Moon Kitchen when she was just nineteen years old, wanted to make sure that her cookies could be enjoyed by all. “Whether you have a wheat sensitivity, require gluten free foods, have nut, peanut or egg allergies, are lactose intolerant, vegan, or keep kosher – we’ve got your back,” the bakery says. And clearly, they mean it.
