Skinny Batches Review

A while ago, I was contacted by a company called Skinny Batches asking if I would like to try some of its yummy baked goods and review them. Would I ever!!!

Skinny Batches is the brainchild of Emme. She describes herself as a "nerd in the kitchen who enjoys playing with ingredients and flavors and is fascinated by the science of experimenting with novel combinations and techniques." Not only do her treats look luscious, but they are also "low calorie, high taste and quality, and zero guilt." Now that's what I like to hear.

Emme sent me several of her treats to sample (pictures taken from Skinny Batches' site):

(Oatmeal Cookie Sampler - plain, raisin, and chocolate chip)

(Salted Janets)

(Chocolate Banana Crumbies)

(Pear Crumbies)

My Review:
The oatmeal cookies were delightfully chewy, having just enough raisins or chocolate chips to give a little sweetness in every bite without overwhelming the cookie.

As for the Salted Janets, that little bit of sea salt sprinkled on top of them really gives them that something special that makes them stand out.

But, my favorite treats were the crumbies. They were like little bites of coffee cake, dense and chewy. Each was topped with a lovely crumb topping that added a nice contrast in texture. The Pear Crumbies seemed to be filled with a sweet cinnamon mixture and the Chocolate Banana mixture in the other crumbies was the perfect combo of flavors. Emme's Crumbies will definitely be unlike anything you've ever eaten before and will make you want to reach for just one more. The best part is that each one is only 45 calories!!!
