Whisk: A Sustainable Bakeshop works hard to accommodate the complicated nutritional requests of its customers, and the best example of this is the "Healthy Choice" cookie. Not only is this the best vegan treat around, but the cookie contains no sugar or gluten, meeting the needs of even the most conscientious eater. The simple list of ingredients — cocoa, almond butter, oats, coconut, agave, salt and vanilla — create a flavor somewhere between Girl Scout Samoa cookies and homemade fudge brownies. The only indication that this treat is not terrible for you is the texture, which is similar to a Clif Bar. Although the "Healthy Choice" cookie might not be as nutritious as, say, a bunch of raw kale, it will satisfy your sweet tooth without the shame spiral afterward.
