Naturally buttery-flavored pecans are grown in our southern states and in Mexico. They provide healthy fats and are high in manganese, copper, and thiamine. We purchase them in 30-pound boxes, to avoid allergen cross-contamination.
Seeds are packed with vitamins and minerals; including calcium, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and Vitamin E. Ground sunflower seed meal is the nutrient-dense “flour” for the Triple Ginger, Lemonade, and Orange cookies. We purchase our seeds in 25-pound bags, which avoids allergen cross-contamination.
One hundred percent whole grain oats are a very good source of manganese, and also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus and selenium. They are purchased in 50-pound bags straight from the oat mill.
Ginger is a major player in the Triple Ginger cookie, where it is used in three forms: candied ginger from Fiji, organic ginger powder, and pure ginger extract.
Ginger is known to aid digestion, and studies have shown it to have numerous health benefits.
The Fijian candied ginger is brought to us by The Ginger People. It is Kosher Certified, and non-GMO compliant. Although the candied ginger is not certified organic (an expensive certification for Fiji’s farmers) it is grown sustainably.
The farmers practice traditional, small-scale farming methods. They use some mechanical equipment such as tractors, but most farms are tended by hand. Weeds are controlled by hand-pulling rather than pesticides; and they use organic soil amendments instead of chemical fertilizers, to improve soil ventilation and fertility. Farmers rotate crops like taro, cassava or other vegetables to balance the soil’s nutrition.
Our dates are gluten-free and grown by Woodspur Farms Oasis Date Company. This natural, high-fiber, high-energy sweetener does your body good. Dates are a healthful, natural treat that is higher in potassium than bananas, with no fat and no sodium.
Unsulfured molasses is made by boiling and concentrating sugar cane juice, to create the sweet, flavorful syrup. Unlike cane sugar, molasses is rich in vitamins and minerals.
Our products use only the best: delicious, organic Grade-A syrup from Maple Valley Co-op. The co-op’s farmers are small to mid-sized U.S. families. Maple Valley Co-op is committed to sustaining family farms and paying farmers a fair price for their products. By enjoying their syrup, you are supporting our U.S. farmers.
Cacao Nibs are simply chopped up bits of the cacao beans, which contain the antioxidants and minerals in cacao, without the added sugars and oils used to turn it into chocolate. Think of them as nature's chocolate chips. Click for more info on cacao and chocolate.
The honey in your Maple Pecan cookie is raw wildflower honey from Spokane’s caring, local, licensed beekeepers. The honey binds the cookie together and gives its moist texture. Honey is the only reason the Maple Pecan cookie is not Vegan.
The Triple Ginger cookie is spiced with heaps of Ceylon cinnamon, also known as “true” cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is considered the "good" cinnamon, because it is low in coumarin. It is quite expensive, though, so most cinnamon products in the U.S. use Cassia cinnamon instead.
NeedACookies use all natural flavorings: vanilla extract, ginger extract, coconut extract, lemon oil, and orange oil. Turmeric and beet root powder color the lemon and orange cookies.
