Sugar Free Cookies

Susan’s Sugar Free Cookies is an American product, made by St. Armour, Inc.

Made without dairy, Susan’s Sugar Free Cookies, come in several flavors.: Almond, Ginger, Peanut, Chocolate, and Orange.  They’re good for diabetics, vegans, and anyone who wants to avoid cane sugar, and animal products.

The cookies have a crunchy, sweet taste because they’re made with malted barley flour, and malitol, a natural sugar substitute, similar to xylitol.

Buy them at Whole Foods Market, Amazon, or order directly from the manufacturer, Susan’s Sugar Free Cookies.
