The month of October can be a real test of our healthy ways. With Halloween candy just about everywhere and delicious pumpkin spice products in every aisle of the supermarket, it can be pretty damn difficult to stick to our usual habits. But let it be known that there are some healthy seasonal treats for you to get your pumpkin spice fix without sacrificing your clean eating ways. Take cookie dough for example. No, not that kind of cookie dough — healthy cookie dough! HiiT Nutrition recently unveiled a totally healthy Pumpkin Spice Cookie Dough flavour, and it checks off all the boxes!
The vegan dessert is dairy-, soy-, and gluten-free, and isn't made with anything artificial. In addition to being seasonally delicious, the dough is high in fibre thanks to its ingredients of gluten-free oat flour, cashew butter, tapioca fibre, dates, agave, brown rice protein, and more. If the ingredients weren't enough to convince you, we have a feeling the reviews will — with one Instagram foodie "happy to report" it has proper pumpkin flavour. One serving has just 100 calories, 5 grams of fibre, 6 grams of sugar, 3.5 grams of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, and 6 grams of sugar. Compared to the nutrition facts of a sugar-filled seasonal drink, we are impressed.
Snag a jar of the Pumpkin Spice Cookie Dough for just $12 on the company website, and get your spoons (or shovels) ready. If only the order came with a chaperone to make sure we don't eat the entire jar at once! Read on to see how everyone is living for their healthy seasonal cookie dough.
