Everyone loves cookies, but many people just can't stomach how bad they are for the body. Loaded with sugar, fat, and more, there just aren't a lot of healthy cookies out there that both satisfy the craving and help you stay conscious of everything you eat.
It doesn't have to be that way - and that's where Maxine's Heavenly comes in: Great-tasting cookies without all the processed stuff you've come to accept as a fact of life.
The History of Maxine's Heavenly
Founder Tim Miller swears his mom made the best cookies on earth. She combined the perfect ingredients and baked them just right every time, but as Miller grew older and had kids of his own, he didn't want to load his cookies up on sugary, ultra-processed ingredients.
So using his mother's perfect cookie recipes, he swapped out every ingredient for the healthiest possible alternatives and found they were a huge hit. When Miller started selling the cookies, he made sure the company kept his mom's name: Maxine.
