#1. As moms we needed a flexible gig.
#2. We needed to work on something we believed in.
#3. Even though we can measure everything in dollars and cents, we still need financial stability.
Today we are proud to support responsible addictions to cookies and exercise.
At Cookie Athlete we declare that, “Sweat and sweets go hand in hand!” We’ll keep your pantry stocked with gourmet cookies. We’ll stuff your recipe box with all the best cookie recipes and we’ll keep you motivated to get a move on and use the most effective ways to burn calories–because that’s what Cookie Athletes do.
Meet the original Cookie Athletes.
Colette was raised as a Cookie Athlete. Instead of pablum her first food was cookies & milk. As a result she knows all of the best cookie recipes and cookie shops. She also dedicates every afternoon to her run.
This Cookie Athletes loves all things pink and girlie and well as the deepest, darkest chocolate chip cookies. That means Colette will only eat fruit-based desserts in a pinch. Peach cobbler and key lime pie–no way!
If Ali were crossing the desert, she would still manage to have cookies, candy, and treats aplenty. She’s a good Cookie Athlete to know because not only can she always hook you up with treats, but she also has the world’s best chocolate chip cookie recipe—and she shares.
This Cookie Athlete makes chocolate a daily ritual. She burns her calories by doing aerobics, volleyball, and jogging, as well as chasing her three adorable children.
Jennifer loves uphill bike rides. She believes water is magic and often says, “A good swim will cure what ails you”. This Cookie Athlete’s ultimate cookie is a big fat, soft sugar cookie with cream cheese frosting.
In her former life she was a copywriter. Nowadays she reads non-fiction, cooks weird food, and tries to get everybody to pick up their dirty socks off of the floor.

He recently moved to Dallas, and within minutes of rolling into town had started searching out sweet treats.
