Nairn's Oat Cookies Review

I was recently contacted by Nairn's, a Scottish company that makes oat based cookies and crackers, to review their product.  They sent me two boxes of their oat cookies.  I received two flavors: Stem Ginger and Mixed Berries.

Nairn's cookies come packed in 4 individual packets, which make them easy to throw in your lunch or take with you on the go, and it keeps the cookies fresher.  Nairn's cookies make for a slightly sweet, but healthy alternative to a traditional cookie.  They are wheat (but not gluten) free, are made with 100% pure wholegrain oats, and have no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.  A serving size is 2 cookies and they are roughly 90 calories per serving.  The cookies are about $4.00 a box on the Nairn's website, but I also found them on Amazon for about the same price.

Individual packages
The Stem Ginger cookies have a very strong ginger taste and are almost spicy.  If you love ginger you will love these.  For me, the taste was a bit too strong.  I liked the Mixed Berries flavor more.  It was mild and not overly sweet.  The cookie is thin and crispy. They also have a dark chocolate chip flavor.  I really wish they would have sent these.  I love chocolate, and think I would have really enjoyed these and I really liked the idea of them being a bit healthier choice. 

As I already mentioned they also have oat based crackers in a variety of flavors, but they didn't send any of these for review.

Overall, I would try these again, but I think I would opt for the chocolate chip.

Disclaimer:  I was sent two boxes of cookies for free for this review however, I was not paid to review this product or asked to provide a positive review.  The opinions contained in this post are my own.


  1. Man, this was a fantastic cookie review. Thank you for giving of yourself!

  2. Ooh. Cookies.. I would like Chocolate better too, but i bet the ginger ones are better for inflammation after a long run. :) Have one (box) of each!

  3. It was a little stupid of the company NOT to send you the chocolate chip one. After all you're a woman and what woman doesn't like chocolate?!
