Product Spotlight: Among Friends CJ’S Double Chocolate Baking Mix
Premium cocoa and chocolate with a hint of espresso make it hard to believe this melt-in-your-mouth cookie is whole grain and low calorie.
The chocolate gene
CJ is proof positive that sons love their mothers best (at least until their first crush). CJ greets Suzie every morning with a bear hug–quickly followed by a request for home baked treats. The entire Miller clan is nuts about chocolate, a gene inherited from Suzie’s dad. So Suzie started experimenting with chocolate–and then some. The result: CJ’s double chocolate cookies, rich and satisfying, but not too sweet. These cookies are too good to be true, and so good for you. I caught Suzie eating two cookies for breakfast this morning while I dined on high protein, low sugar oatmeal with flax. (I, Lizann, am the real antioxidant queen.)
Certified gluten-free oat flour, organic cane sugar*, chocolate chips (cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla beans), cocoa powder, organic ground flax seed**, coffee powder, baking soda and sea salt.

About the Company
Among Friends, LLC, is the creation of two friends, Suzie Miller and Lizann Anderson. Like many such ventures, it began over a cup of coffee (and involved a cookie, of course). This was a mouthwatering cookie, with memorable taste and texture, handcrafted by Suzie. That’s when I got out my wooden spoon. (I’m Lizann). I vowed to make Suzie’s cookies dense with nutrition without sacrificing great taste.
