I have a serious sweet tooth. I feel like no meal is complete without dessert! So when a friend told me about a healthier cookie company that was raising funds on Kickstarter, I knew I had to check them out.
According to their website, Green Pea Cookies are based off a recipe from Singapore and are made with roasted green peas, powdered sugar, non-GMO sunflower oil, unbleached white flour (or brown rice flour for their gluten-free version), salt, and “happeaness.”
The cookies currently come in three flavors: original, chocolate dipped, and cranberry, and can be purchased in three sizes: Small: 18 cookies (110g), Medium: 24 cookies (145g), Large: 34 cookies (200g).
Green Pea Cookie is in their final days of their Kickstarter and have been doing an awesome job. They have already reached their initial goal, but now have a new goal of distributing 1 million cookies (as of writing this, they were up to over 40,500 distributed).
Their marketing is absolutely adorable by the way. Each of the cookies has a name (Peater is the original, Penelopea is cranberry, and Dimpea is chocolate dipped).
Depending on your donation amount on their Kickstarter page, you can receive some of the cookies, a t-shirt (they are so cute!), stickers, or a monthly box of happeaness. With my donation, I will receive a t-shirt and cannot wait to rock it with pride. Seriously, how great are these shirts?
The founders of Green Pea Cookies were kind enough to send me a sample of their original flavor. I am happy to say they are absolutely delicious!
The texture is kind of like shortbread, crumbly but rich. I honestly didn’t taste much “pea” flavor in mine, but my fiance said he did get a hint of it and really enjoyed it. They are both salty and sweet, which makes for a pretty fantastic combo.
The little bite sized cookies are perfectly pop-able, but at just 100 calories a serving (which is 6 cookies), you can keep on popping them!
They would make the perfect “afternoon work” snack, don’t you think?
I can only imagine how tasty the chocolate dipped cookies are, but I personally think the cranberry ones must be amazing — sounds like such a great combo!
It’s awesome to see how great this company is doing so far on Kickstarter, but I’d love to see them get to their goal of 1 million cookies. Be sure to check out their Kickstarter page ASAP (it ends March 15, 2015) and consider donating!
