Grandma’s Wholesome Treats


Grandma’s makes three flavors, so far: Coconut, Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon. What distinguishes these cookies from the rest of the pack, you ask? Unlike the rest, these are made from kamut. What is kamut? It is one of the oldest used grains, it’s name appears on many Egyptian hieroglyphics. Legend has it, that it was a staple of the ancient Egyptians’ diet,  because it was reputed to give high energy to those who ingested it; we can presume therefore that our ancestors while enslaved in the land of the Nile, likely ate it too.

Coconut, Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon flavored kamut cookies from Grandma's

Kamut wheat is considered an ancient grain, and because it hasn’t been modified with modern agricultural methods it has many benefits. The grain itself is very high in its protein content. It also contains a high concentration of selenium, zinc, and magnesium. This grain variety is a high energy wheat, and provides the body with more energy in the form of complex carbohydrates. Because of its low oxidation levels it loses little nutritional content when ground and processed. Even though this wheat variety contains gluten, it has been found to be more easily digestible by people who may have slight allergic tendencies.

they didn't last very long...

These cookies are:

  • Very filling (therefore you eat less!)
  • Easily absorbed
  • High in protein
  • Low in gluten

They contain no transfat, no refined sugar and no preservatives.

They provide:

  • Fiber
  • Omega 3
  • Essential vitamins and minerals

They taste somewhat different from anything I was used to, but the flavors grow on you and you soon come to crave them. My personal favorite was the Chocolate Chip. These cookies are good for you, but… would you expect anything different from a name like Grandma’s?
