Nourish Organics Cookies Review – Ginger Oats & Chia Turmeric
Fibrous and free of preservatives, Nourish Organics Cookies are flavorful, flour-free, and enriched with superfoods!
Cookies are often viewed as fat and sugar-loaded crumbles. And rightly so, several brands in the market use refined/hydrogenated oils, refined sugars, or even worse- artificial sweeteners to bring down the calorie count.
While portion control is key, most commercially available cookies are made using hyper-palatable ingredients. In recent times, more and more consumers are becoming conscious, learning to read nutritional labels, and gaining awareness of what they consume. With this shift, ‘superfoods’ gained a lot of attention.
Nourish Organics is one of the few brands that focuses on quality as much as taste. These cookies and other products like breakfast cereals and health bars are made without refined sugar. Read Team Mishry’s Nourish Organics cookies review for a detailed explanation of what the pack says. Aluminum-free baking powder? How does it affect the cookies?

Nourish Organics Cookies – Detailed Review
Nourish Organics is one of the only brands we’ve come across that uses aluminium free baking powder. What is it? How is it different from regular baking powders?
Baking powders typically have aluminium in them. What aluminium does is it delays the reaction between baking powder and the batter and only activates once the batter heats up in the OTG/microwave. The end result is a well-risen cake that may or may not have a metallic aftertaste. As the name suggests, aluminium free baking powder is free of aluminium which means there will be no metallic/industrial taste whatsoever. The (very minute) drawback- you need to be super quick with mixing the batter/dough and placing it in the oven.
Let’s dig into the details.

1. Ginger Oats
A 120 gram carton holds five packs, each comprising two cookies. The airproof packs help retain crunch and freshness. Full marks for how convenient the packaging is!
The cookies look more or less the same. These are loaded with nuts and seeds that enhance the rugged visual appeal. These aren’t brittle, dry, or chewy, they have a lovely crunch which adds to the freshness. This non-dry texture was honestly unexpected as the cookies are made using fiber-rich ingredients. That said, though the ingredient list mentions almond butter, these cookies do not feel greasy or heavy, nor do they leave the fingers sticky. A big thumbs up on this!
Talking about the texture of individual ingredients, the brand uses whole flax seeds, big bits of almonds, sunflower seeds which all lend a crunch. The raisins are soft and fleshy.
Just one taste test later, we knew we had found the perfect coffee or chai companion for the winters. First things first, these are very mildly sweet. We observed a more predominant ginger flavor, followed by a distinct coconut flavor. Even the nuts and seeds added tasted very fresh, none of them had any rancid or industrial aftertaste.
All in all, these cookies do justice to the flavor. They are fresh, fibrous, and super filling.

An oversized sweater, cozy blanket, a steaming hot cup of masala chai, with a pack of these cookies. Sounds like heaven! The ginger flavor feels very natural and adds the characteristic warmth it’s known for.
2. Chia Turmeric
The Chia Turmeric cookies are packed just like the first variant we tried. Owing to the addition of turmeric, these have a dark yellow appearance. Nuts, seeds, and raisins have been added open-handedly.
The texture too, is similar to Ginger Oats by Nourish Organics.
All flavors in this variant are fairly delicate. The sweetness, the bitter pungency from turmeric, coconutty taste, cinnamon, ginger- these are all mild but not to the point where all flavors are combined and go unidentified. No, we could still make out the ingredients individually, just that they were mild.
Now turmeric, as we’ve all experienced, leaves stains. Another plus, this wasn’t the case with these cookies!
These cookies are primarily savory and the level of sweetness proves this correct. That said, the typical spices/seasonings used (cumin, carom, ginger, cinnamon) were well-balanced and not overpowering. Even salt was added adequately. The nuts and seeds tasted super fresh and had a bite to them.
We were delightfully surprised at both these variants since they are prepared without flour but taste equally good, if not more than regular cookies.
