Cookies that come packaged in plastic aren’t usually good news nutritionally.
But the big, chewy Montana Moon cookies, made in Billings by three health-conscious sisters, are free of preservatives and full of natural ingredients like turbinado sugar, canola oil, aluminum-free baking powder, purified water and applesauce.
They’re full of flavor, too - from the original Wild Oats n’ Raisins to Almond Chocolate Chunk, Raspberry Rapture, Mocha Java Jump and the hearty Happy Trails.
Price: $1 to $1.50 per 4-ounce cookie (sample packs of 15 available for $16.50 plus shipping; call 800-276-0664).
Available: At various Spokane area convenience stores, as well as Deaconess Medical Center Gift Shop, Alpine Deli, Wild Walls Climbing Gym, the Nut Factory and Oasis Espresso in Spokane; Mrs. T’s Boutique in Post Falls, and Mocha Motion and Java the Hut in Hayden.
