Cookie Critique: Sweet Loren’s

Gluten free fudgy brownie cookie dough?! Sweet Loren’s Gluten Free Fudgy Brownie cookie dough turns into “12 insanely delicious cookies” in under 12 minutes. These treats pay attention to the details: they are Non-GMO, dairy-free, nut-free, whole grain, gluten-free, and vegan!

It can be challenging to find authentic-tasting chocolate that is also sensitive to allergies. However, Sweet Lauren’s takes the cake, the cookie, and–yes–even the brownie of vegan desserts.

This was purchased in the refrigerated vegan aisle (corner) at Fresh Market. It was near the pre-packaged Carolina-style jackfruit. Some grocery stores, like Target, might have it with the cookies.

For this batch, I followed the directions on the back of the package: 11 minutes in the oven at 325 F. The cookies did not spread out as much as I expected them to, so I gave them one minute more. In the end, they were almost as pictured on the package. The chocolate melted apart leaving a soft center and crispy edges. Exactly how we want.

One cookie is enough to satisfy a sweet tooth’s craving. The nutrition facts are generous, with each cookie at under 150 calories and around 12 grams of sugar. Sugar is something to pay attention to with desserts, because too much can take a toll on wellness.

Overall, these have been a 3x repurchase! The first time I tried them was a few years ago. The second time was over the weekend for my friend’s engagement party. The entire tray disappeared before everyone could get one. The cookies converted into smiles and no one even knew they were…vegan!

What is Suitaru? Suitaru is a creative interpretation of the Japanese word for style: sutairu. I first heard this word in a Latin class at Florida State University. Some words stand out while others disappear. "Sutairu" has stayed with me. My name is Natalie and I was born on a military base in Okinawa, Japan to parents who were very in love. My mother, father, and I lived there until I was two years old. Although we moved back to America, the desire to travel is in my heart. Since, I have been to surprising parts of the world. I have spent time exploring many different places that I never dreamed I would go. Emerald waters of Italy, the best pizza in my life in Croatia, and a yoga retreat in Iceland. For me, travel inspires creation. Whether that comes out as art, music, or fashion--a certain style is experienced with every passport stamp. This site is a documentary, of sorts. It is a place to post otherwise unseen photographs. Comment along--feedback is fun. Thanks for accompanying my journey! Suitaru embodies a philosophy of innovative, impactful, timeless style. Style is individual expression. Style is art. "Style is eternal." YSL
