If you’ve ever thought that these cookies look fun, check out this Mavericks cookies review!

As a vegan, I get super excited when I try new plant based products, and I love to talk about nutrition (after all-I am a dietitian)!

What are Mavericks Cookies?

Mavericks cookies are small bolt shaped cookies (also looks like an ‘M’ to me!) that use plant based ingredients.

They are advertised as:

  • Vegan friendly
  • Plant based
  • Having less sugar in comparison to select other cookies.
  • No peanuts
  • No artificial ingredients
  • Non-GMO
  • Snacks
  • Cookies

The flavors available at the date of this review are:

  • Birthday Cake
  • Double Trouble Choc
  • Non-Stop Choc

Besides the fashionable packaging, how do they actually taste? My thoughts and more in the review below!

Mavericks Cookies Review


Taste Score: 10/10

All flavors were really enjoyable!

I did not think they tasted artificial. They all were nice and crunchy, and some of them had a slight buttery shortbread-like taste (which I liked)!

Here’s some notes depending on the flavor.

  • Birthday Cake: Tastes like an actual birthday cake! You can note some vanilla with a hint of sugary icing (but not too sweet like some icings are).
  • Non-Stop Choc: This tasted very much like a store bought chocolate chip cookie (but with a more subtle chocolate flavor). It kind of reminded me of Chips Ahoy (but better in my opinion).
  • Double Trouble Choc: This basically tastes like a brownie in the form of cookie! It reminds me of brownie brittle-but not as crispy. I love the strong cocoa flavor, and touch of chocolate.

And the whole family enjoyed them (including the parents)!

My husband thought they were great, and daughter kept asking for them as desserts-for days.

You can watch a video of me reviewing the flavors on my YouTube Short below:


I got these at Meijer on sale for $3.00 USD (regular price: $3.29.0) per 7 ounce box- which is pretty expensive (so I’m glad the deals were available)!

As a comparison, Oreo’s at Mejier are only about $4.19 USD for a 13.29 ounce package – that’s almost double the weight!

That being said, you might factor in that Mavericks will likely have less added sugars than other vegan cookie brands.


Mavericks Cookies Nutrition facts (with pictures of the nutrition facts on packages of each flavor). You can read the ingredients in the blog post.

The nutrition facts are very similar across flavors.

I’ve captured some of them below (as shown in the picture above)for a 8 cookie serving: : [*note small variations between flavors]

  • Calories: 110
  • Saturated fat: 2 grams
  • Sodium: 110 milligrams
  • Carbohydrates: 18-19 grams
  • Fiber: 2-3 grams
  • Added Sugars: 4-5 grams
  • Protein: 1 gram

These cookies are low in sodium, contribute a bit of fiber, and are lower in added sugars than several other cookies on the market.

That makes them really standout. As comparison, a serving of original Oreo’s has over double the amount of added sugar- at around 14 grams per 3 cookies(1)!

They do have a similar saturated fat content to original Oreos.

Both added sugars and saturated fat are important to keep on the low side for a variety of reasons, including heart health (2).

Again, these are desserts! It’s important to keep your whole dietary pattern in account.


Here’s the ingredients as noted from the pictures of the packages in the nutrition section.

  • Non Stop Chocolate Flavor: “Ingredients: Wheat flour, cane sugar, palm oil, chicory root fiber, chocolate chip {sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin [emulsifier], vanilla extract}, natural flavors, salt, baking soda.”
  • Birthday Cake Flavor: “Ingredients: Wheat flour, cane sugar, palm oil, chicory root fiber, sprinkles (sugar, palm kernel oil, corn starch, color (vegetable juice, spirulina extract, turmeric, annatto extract, beta carotene), maltodextrin, carnauba wax, cellulose gum), natural flavors, salt, baking soda
  • Double Trouble Choc flavor: “Ingredients: Wheat flour, cane sugar, palm oil, chicory root fiber, chocolate chip {sugar, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, soy lecithin [emulsifier], vanilla extract}, cocoa (processed with alkali), natural flavors, salt, baking soda.”

These ingredients are vegan friendly.

The common theme appears to be that fiber was added (extracted from chicory root) rather than coming from a whole food plant based source.

These cookies are not gluten free (if that is important to you!).

There is a note on the ingredients that the palm oil is RSPO (roundtable on sustainable palm oil) certified.

However, I couldn’t find mention of where the cocoa was sourced from.

This is something I would personally love to know-as there are several areas of the world that have unfair labor practices on cocoa plantations (you can learn more about this here).


8 Mavericks birthday cake flavored cookies on a plate.

I was pleased with the portion size!

One serving is 8 little cookies as pictured above (that’s the birthday cake flavor).

It’s looks visually appealing to me, and fun to eat them one by one!

Would I Buy Them Again?

Yes- I would buy the birthday cake flavor again! You can check them out below! (*affiliate link):

I thought all flavors were super tasty and I also appreciated that they include a bit of fiber and are fairly low added sugars!

While I would want to buy the chocolate containing ones again, I would first like to hear where they source their cocoa.

Here’s some of the pros and cons I came up with (again, these are just my opinions!✌)


  • These are very tasty!
  • No artificial after taste.
  • Pretty low in added sugars
  • Fiber


  • Pricey
  • Saturated fat (although, this is fairly low compared to other cookies)
  • Not sure if cocoa containing ones have cocoa sourced from regions where unfair labor practices are more prevalent.

What are your favorite vegan cookies (and where is your favorite place to shop for them)? Let me know in the comments!
