Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives

Love + Chew

A cookie that feels as great as it tastes? Founder Lauren Chew (yes, that’s really her perfect cookie-maker last name) started the plant-based company out of her own kitchen after being inspired by her stepmother’s switch to a plant-based lifestyle. When she delved into the plant-based world, she found that she not only enjoyed it, but wanted to make plant-based eating convenient, easy, and most importantly - delicious. From the very first, delectable cookie, she hasn’t looked back. Love + Chew cookies are loaded with natural ingredients like almond flour, almond butter, chocolate chips, baking soda, chia seeds and dates. What these vegan treats are missing are grains, gluten, soy, and (for the most part — there are some exceptions) refined sugar. Even better, each soft baked cookie has seven grams of protein, five grams of fiber and no trans fats. The high protein makeup is specifically designed to keep you full, so this isn’t just a treat that tastes good, it’s a trick to keep you on the go. They’re perfect for a treat that packs some protein or sprinkled on top of ice cream for dessert. Heck, you could even dip or dunk it into yogurt and berries for a new take on a breakfast parfait.
