Currently 1 in 3 Americans are effected by Diabetes.  The lion’s share of gluten free products on the market do not address this epidemic. The majority of these pre-packaged foods actually contribute to increased insulin levels and lack the transparency consumers need to make the best choices for their family’s health and wellbeing. Our cookies are made with the finest Organic real food ingredients that have a low glycemic impact and work to boost metabolism and curb appetite. We are certified Gluten Free and Vegan, Paleo Friendly, Free of preservatives, Soy, Corn, Dairy and GMO’s. By sweetening our cookies with Diabetic friendly Xylitol sourced from Birtch trees our cookies have no sugar added and less than 2 grams of net impact carbs! Finally you can indulge yourself with a treat that you can feel good about!

Getting back to the foundation on better health with real food wellness:

Sarah’s Skinny Sweets was created by our founder Sarah Collette. Her first job at 16 was with Henry’s Farmers Market (Now Sprouts) in Poway located in Southern California. Now a life long veteran of natural health and wellness, she has dedicated her life to educating retailers and consumers alike to the dangers of misleading label practices all to common in our modern “S.A.D” food landscape.

After personally experimenting with multiple dietary lifestyles backed by books and more books followed by research proving one dietary regimen and disproving another; she made the choice to switch to the Paleo Diet. And made not just a dietary shift but a lifestyle shift that were in fact the initial seeds of change that would blossom into Sarah’s Skinny Sweets. Transforming old family classic recipes into health focused real food alternatives, she experimented, filled all of her old cookbooks with handwritten health conscious alternatives. And continued to seek more knowledge on optimum health through real food.

Once her Grandfather was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes, her focus shifted to creating the perfect Low gycemic impact cookie for Grandpa. He had been sneaking sweets after his diagnosis… This spawned more research for Sarah into the rise of reversible health risks and natural alternatives for people at risk or suffering from the complications of this epidemic. After too many trial and errors to count, Sarah’s Skinny Sweets was born. In it’s infancy, Sarah continued to work as a Sales Rep in the Natural Products industry. Training Whole Foods teams as well as other natural retail whole body teams on the health benefits of real food, and Extra Virgin Coconut oil. A few local stores became early adopters and decided to carry these one of a kind cookies on their shelves. Then, out of obscurity, the cookies that had at the time only made their way into two Los Angeles locations, received a invite to be included in the official gift bags for the News and Documentary Emmy’s in NYC! The next year, Sarah made the leap of faith, cashed out her 401k and dedicated her life to sharing the knowledge she had gained in over 17 years in the natural products industry.

Today we are growing in the Southern Pacific Whole Foods region, as well as many other local independents. You can find your closest local store here:

Our mission is to continue to spread the good real food word and be a strong voice in the movement to regain not only our health but the health of our nations children.

“But that’s the challenge — to change the system more than it changes you.”
