Plant-based bakers GATO & Co has launched a new range of cookies called Cookies N Cream.
Handmade with natural ingredients, the snacks consist of cookie ‘sandwiches’ with a creamy filling. They are plant based, high in fibre, free from gluten, dairy and palm oil and low sugar.
Co-founder Kim Lamza says: “At GATO, we are passionate about creating super indulgent plant-based products that are better for you, your gut and the planet – the dream! Our treats are vegan friendly, packed with natural ingredients and contain much less sugar.”
The flavours in the range include Choc Vanilla – chocolate cookies with a vanilla cream filling; Choc Peanut Butter – chocolate cookies with peanut butter cream; Choc Hazelnut Butter cookies – chocolate cookies with a hazelnut butter filling; and a Salted Caramel cookie, the only vanilla cookies of the range with a chocolate-salted-caramel filling.
All include gluten-free oats and ground almonds in place of flour and nut butters and coconut oil in place of butter. Containing 50% less sugar than comparable snacks, GATO cookie sandwiches have 99 calories per serving.
