The other day, I discovered these scrumptious bio spelt cookies by Sommer, a German company known for producing yummy baked goods. The range of products itself isn’t 100% vegan, but they do have a wide assortment of treats that don’t contain any animal products which are clearly marked with a “vegan” label. I picked up two varieties of cookies ( I swear, I wanted to grab just one pack but my hand had a will of its own!) – wholemeal with dark chocolate and dark chocolate with orange oil.
I loved these cookies straight away because they look fresh, and not too unhealthy, which is saying something as far as processed foods go. The packaging itself is simple, but modern. It’s also great that you can see inside the bag, shame they didn’t go for a different packaging material that isn’t plastic.
Inside the label, they included a short story about the company, as well as a recipe, which I thought was a nice touch. I have to admit, I was a bit surprised to see that one of the recipes was not vegan. I know that they aren’t a vegan company, but it would have been nice to see that the products labeled as vegan didnt promote the usage of animal products in any way.
Spelt Cookies with Dark Chocolate and Orange Oil
Out of the two varieties, this one was BY FAR my favourite. You can taste both the chocolate and the orange flavours in one bite! The cookies themselves are crunchy,and go exceptionally well with coffee or tea. I liked that they don’t crumble, or leave your fingers feeling oily.
Some of the ingredients these cookies contain: spelt flour, raw cane sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, orange oil, and other spices.
In terms of calories, you’re looking at 488 kcal per 100g. Not what you would call a light treat!
Spelt Wholemeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate
They are yummy, but less chocolaty than expected. The taste itself somehow reminds me of chocolate müsli. I thought they make a great breakfast treat.
Some of the ingredients these cookies contain: spelt wholemeal flour, raw cane sugar, chocolate, hazelnuts, cocoa butter, and other spices.

All in all, an amazing find! It took me no longer than two days to finish them. Will be going back for more. 🙂
