Do you remember soft baked cookies from when you were young. They were yummy and so addictive you could eat the whole package. Ignorance was bliss back then, because I had no idea they were filled with preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, soy Lecithin and Vanillin. Vanillin is wood pulp that is an alternative used for vanilla extract to reduce production costs. I can speak at length regarding all of the ingredients contained in most packaged baked goods but that will give you an idea of what you are eating. Making food from high quality organic ingredients is worth your time investment. Your body will thank you and those who are eating the treats will think you are a rockstar!
