Honey-sweetened and boasting an addictive chewiness, Caveman Cookies are sold in six-packs, each cookie individually wrapped. The name comes from the idea that the cookie only includes ingredients which humans evolved to eat (fruit, nuts, vegetables) as opposed to more recent introductions into the human diet (dairy, grains). The result is a cookie that seems to be a cross between an energy bar and classic cookie.

It's certainly unique and oddly satisfying, thin and chewy cookies made with a base of almond meal and spiced with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Caveman Cookies come in two other flavors: the Tropical, with coconut and macadamia nuts, and the Alpine, with hazelnut meal and toasted ground carob. But I'm partial to the Original—keeping it simple with a tried and true combination of raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon.
