Coconut oil not only gives our cookies a delicious sweetness but it's also a healthy fat. It's made up of fats called medium chain fatty acids (MCFA's). Unlike long-chain fatty acids found in plant-based oils, MCFA's are: easier to digest, antimicrobial and anti fungal, smaller in size which allows for easier cell permeability and gives you immediate energy. They are also processed by the liver which means that they are immediately converted to energy and not stored as fat.
Organic Maple Syrup
Compared to refined cane sugar which offers no nutrients, maple syrup contains anti-oxidants and minerals like zinc and manganese. It also has a lower glycemic load than cane sugar.
Organic Raw Cacao
Raw cacao powder has more than 300 phytochemicals and nearly four times the antioxidant power of regular dark chocolate. It also contains protein, calcium, carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium and sulfur. Cacao con improve heart health, cholesterol, stress levels and inflammation.
RAW 85% Organic Dark Chocolate
We love chocolate, but not just any chocolate. To create the perfect cookie we tried many brands and loved Pacari's RAW 85% Dark Chocolate. Not only does it have a high cacao content (translation: contains the most powerful antioxidants and no refined sugar) but it's also organic and direct trade!
Salt gets a bad rap but like everything it's about making the healthier choice. At bākt we skip the ultra processed salt (that’s the kind of salt that causes problems). Instead we use pure Himalayan pink salt which is an awesome health booster. Known as “pink gold,” Himalayan crystals contain all of the 84 elements found in your body.
