This cookie won the title of healthiest for a few reasons: per cookie, the calories are pretty low. One serving also delivers the least amount of sugar, only 1 teaspoon in four cookies. There are only 10 ingredients in the ingredient list—and sugar appears a mere two times. Also, did we mention a serving is four whole cookies?
