5 Best Organic and Non-GMO Oreo Cookie Alternatives
Oreos are a beloved cookie. Most people grew up getting them in their lunch boxes or dunking them in milk after school. They are a delicious crunchy cookie with a flavor you cannot mistake for anything else.
Unfortunately, Oreos are far from safe and healthy for your body. Oreos contain a host of unnatural ingredients, including artificial flavors, GMO canola oil, high fructose corn syrup, and soy bean.
Canola oil is made from corn, which is one of the most common GMO crops on the planet and are often treated with Roundup. Soybeans are a close second for most common GMO crop as well. High fructose corn syrup is made from corn as well and comes with a laundry list of dangers.
Artificial flavors are a huge concern as well. Companies are not required to disclose exactly what they put into the “natural flavors” formula. This means there could be hundreds of chemicals and toxic ingredients that go into making the cookie’s distinct flavor and you will never know that those chemicals and ingredients are.
Since Oreo cookies are such toxic little cookies, are there any equally tasty chocolate sandwich cookie alternatives that are safe to eat and don’t contain concerning ingredients?
The good news is, yes! In this post we will take a look at the top 5 best organic and non-GMO Oreo cookie alternatives that will bring back all the nostalgia, but without the chemicals.
