High Hopes Vegan Bakery Review + Giveaway

I first heard of High Hopes Vegan Bakery, where else, Instagram!  If you are on Instagram make sure to go follow @highhopesveganbakery
Located in Long Island, NY, locals can order treats to be delivered or picked up.  For those that are located elsewhere there is an Etsy shop where you can order treats to be shipped.
This is how I got my goodies and they tasted freshly baked, so don't worry about that!
Cynthia offered to send me a few treats to try.  Could I be any luckier?

I opened my package to find Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Cranberry Cluster!



I can, without any hesitation, say that I have tasted more than a fair amount of chocolate chip cookies in my day.  I am so close to being Cookie Monster that sometimes I think I should be covered in blue fur ;)

The cookies are the perfect mix of crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.  The chocolate chips are big, more like chocolate chunks!
Sweet enough but not too sweet.  Perfectly sized that one would be enough, although you will want another.
Imagine the perfect chocolate chip cookie.  
This is that cookie!


Looking at and tasting these cookies you would not know that they are 100% vegan.  The meatiest omnivore or the pickiest picker will love these!

Perfect look and taste, you will want some for yourself and to give as gifts.

The Cranberry Cluster is vegan and gluten free.  I don't know about you, but I just love chocolate and fruit together. The cluster has a delightful chewiness to it thanks to the cranberries.  One is enough to satisfy a sweet craving so keeping these on hand can be a healthier alternative to a giant pastry.

Teaching Pilates and being a runner, I am able to afford a few extra calories, but not too many.  I also despise putting the laundry list of chemicals in my body that most store-bought sweets have.
I try to avoid eating too many sweets, but I am also a firm believer that most foods are fine in moderation, and that eating clean, even clean treats, is ideal.  Looking for a clean-eating cookie?  Here you go!

Although I often contemplate being vegan I am a complete omnivore.  I think I will start my quest to being vegan with Vegan baked goods and treats!

Next on my list I will be ordering the vegan peanut butter cups!



High Hopes Vegan Bakery is offering one lucky ready One Dozen Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies! Good luck!

I am using Rafflecopter again to make entering a breeze!
