We are so excited to featured in Plymouth Magazine's article on local holiday gifts, alongside our friends at Nikkolette's Macarons!
If any other month screams, “Cookies,” it’s December. With December 4 tagged as National Cookie Day, the month gets off to a sweet start. Plymouth resident Sue Kakuk created Kakookies, nutritious, grab ‘n’ go cookies made with whole grains, plant-based protein and superfood ingredients. Cookie flavors include: almond cranberry, Boundary Waters blueberry, cashew blondie (our editor’s favorite), dark chocolate cranberry and peanut butter chocolate chip.
“They are a perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite student, outdoors adventurer or busy young adult. Not only are they a super fun way to make your favorite holiday cookie exchange a little healthier, but they are perfect if you have someone participating with dietary restrictions,” All of the cookies are vegan and gluten-free, and Boundary Waters blueberry variety is also nut free.Continue reading
In the latest issue of Plymouth Magazine, Sue shares some of her favorite treats to bake during the holidays, including pecan pie cookies!
"I love cookies and am always finding ways to secretly incorporate healthful ingredients, yet still be indulgent. Instead of flour, I use nutrient rich pecans, oats and flax meal to create the most delicious gluten-free cookies. Shhh! Don't tell anyone as they'll never know! These cookies are so reminiscent of the classic holiday pecan pie you'll want to bake them all year long. Enjoy!" - SueContinue reading

In the spirit of all things oats we thought it was the perfect time to share THE POWER OF OATS:Continue reading
Let me introduce you to Boundary Waters Blueberry!
It's times like this, during Covid 19 crisis that many of us reflect on a simple question: How did this happen or how did we get here? As a small local business, we are frequently asked, how did we get to where we are today?
Every founder has a story. It usually stems from a particular passion or finding a solution to a problem. I originally created Kakookies for my daughter when she was a collegiate cyclist because I didn't feel good about her and her teammates stopping at Dunkin' Donuts before or after their races.Continue reading
