When Life Gives You Cookie Crumbles

It takes a simple crumble and a cookie becomes incredibly versatile, with those bottom-of-the-bag bits being given new life with a little creativity.

Audrey’s Chia Cookies are not your average cookie. They’re loaded with sweet flavor and a satisfying crunch packed with a secret weapon that amplifies every bite - chia seeds.

The chia seed is a superfood because in its tiny form one seed contains an extremely dense concentration of nutrients that are vital to our bodies like proteins, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, “good” fats, amino acids and more. When working together, the body is able to process these nutrients, unlock their value, and use them quickly and efficiently.

Due to their delicious flavor and nutritional value, it’s important not to waste even the tiniest cookie crumbles — especially when there are so many creative ways to incorporate them into different dishes!

Breakfast, Lunch and...Dessert

Audrey’s Chia Cookies are all-natural, non-GMO and contain no preservatives, dyes or syrups and with the incorporation of chia seeds, they make a great addition to almost any meal of the day.

Any of the four great flavors would pair perfectly alongside a glass of milk but these cookies hold so much more opportunity than the traditional act of dipping.

For breakfast, you can crumble up your favorite flavor and you’ve got the perfect mix-in for yogurt or cereal. Chia seeds contain certain vitamins that help metabolize carbs into usable energy and since they also absorb 10 times their weight in water, starting your day with a sprinkle of these cookies can help prolong energy and hydration throughout the day. Who doesn’t love cookies for breakfast?

By lunchtime, the cravings are setting in but there’s nothing worse than a post-lunch sugar crash. You can feed that sweet tooth and boost your energy by mixing some crumbs with peanut butter making homemade cookie butter that’s sure to spice up that boring PB & J.

They also repurpose well for an afternoon snack as a topper for pudding or your favorite acai bowl. And if you’re familiar with magic cookie bars, just substitute crushed up cookies for the graham crackers in the recipe and the result is even more tasty!

Come dinnertime, the family has finished their meals and they’re patiently awaiting the most important meal of the day...dessert! Opportunities are endless when it comes to repurposing the cookies into a delicious final course.

Some of the easier options are to crumble some up and blend into a milkshake but don’t worry, chia seeds are just tiny enough that they won’t clog the straw and interrupt your moment of indulgence. They also work well as a garnish for a slice of cake...or two.

With a little extra prepping, you can create a topper for ice cream sundaes or custard. Just crumble or cut a few cookies into bite sized pieces and gently pan-fry them in butter. You can also press some crumbs mixed with butter into a pie plate and voila! A cookie crumble pie crust!

Who’s Ready for Seconds?

A cookie that’s not only good but better for you is almost unheard of today so you can bet your bottom-of-the-bag bits that if there’s a way to incorporate Audrey’s Chia Cookies into every meal, we will find it!
