Mac N-Mo's Review and Giveaway

We all need a little treat once in a while, right? We have to indulge, it's human nature to want to. Although sometimes we overdo it. Thanks to Mac-N-Mo's, we can still enjoy yummy treats in a much healthier way.



Mac-N-Mo's was started in 2010 when the owner Maura, was trying to find a healthier solution to baked goods for her dad who loved sweets, but also is a diabetic and has a restrictive diet. All of the treats are vegan free, sodium free, sugar free, gluten free, and preservative free. The baked goods come in morsels (very small treats) or regular-sized cookies.

I was sent three different kinds of morsels. I received peanut butter spice, chocolate chip, and pumpkin cranberry.

(Pumpkin cranberry morsels)

(Chocolate chip morsels)

I think these morsels are a fantastic idea for anyone who loved baked goods, but is trying to weed out all of the unnatural and bad for you ingredients that most cookies and sweets contain. The morsels are very unique, and unlike anything I've ever had before. I love how small they are, they are just the right size for curbing your sweet tooth, but still letting you induldge too. All of Mo's treats contain organic ingredients.

The chocolate chip was my favorite. All of the morsels have a very "earthy" taste that could possibly take some getting used to, but in the end I came to really enjoy them. They also have a semi-crunchy consistency. The chocolate morsel was not overly sweet or rich, but it was still very delicious! I really liked it combined with the almonds, unsweetened coconut, and the organic quinoa. It gave it a nice crunch and diversity of flavors. The morsel only contains 1 gram of sugar, so you can still have your chocolate and eat it too without worrying about having too much sugar in your diet!

The pumpkin cranberry morsel had very similiar ingredients as the chocolate chip morsel. I am not a big fan of cranberries in baked goods, so I wasn't too crazy about the cranberries. I do love pumpkin though, so this was right up my alley. The pumpkin in the recipe is organic, which is important to me. I am not sure which spices Mo uses in her recipe, but I love them! It gave the treat such a unique flavor that left me wanting more. Just delicious!

Lastly, I tried the peanut butter spice flavor. I do love peanut butter, so I knew I would really enjoy this one as well. This morsel reminded me of Christmas time where everyone makes spice cakes or some kind of spiced dessert. I've never tried a morsel like this before and it was very interesting. I loved the aspect of smooth and creamy peanut butter combined with hearty spices, it was just fabulous!. It was a very comforting treat that I would love to sit around and eat with friends on a cold or rainy night. Mac-N-Mo's is right, their treats are magical!

Mo's says: Since there are no preservatives, remember to eat them right away or freeze (if they last that long). For extra morselicousness, pop them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds before eating.

One lucky winner will win a Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix! It can be used for morsels, pancakes, muffins, cakes,
casseroles... a healthy gluten and sodium free & sugar gree replacement
for any dish requiring flour, etc. This is a plain mix and the recipient can add their own spices and sweeteners to taste.

  1. I'm not entirely sure what ingredients I would use, but I love to use either honey or agave nectar as a sweetner. I have lots of food intolerances so this would be fantastic to try!
