I’ve been a fan of Maxine’s Heavenly Cookies since I first tried them earlier in the year — you can read the full review here. If you are unfamiliar with the brand they are not only gluten-free but also vegan, non-GMO, soy-free and sweetened only with coconut sugar. So, when they reached-out to me recently to sample their seasonal Pumpkin Pecan Spice seasonal flavor — it only took as long as me clicking send to say yes.
I have to admit that I am not one of those can’t wait for the Pumpkin Spice lattes to return to signal the official arrival of fall kind of people. That being said I do love pumpkin so I was excited to give these a try and they did not disappoint.
I truly love the gluten-free oat base that Maxine’s Heavenly uses in their cookies and it was perfectly complemented by the rich earthiness of actual pumpkin. The addition of pecans and flaxseed add to the rich texture of these cookies that is rounded out by the spicy notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. All of the flavors are perfectly balanced and worked extremely well with one another without any of the overpowering the others — it was the perfect flavor profile in every bite.
Maxine’s Heavenly recent re-branded their packaging and it looks as good as their cookies taste. Be sure to visit their website to view their entire product line where you can also order online or find out where you can find them nearby. Just be sure to find the Pumpkin Pecan Spice soon because they are only around for a limited time
