    This is exactly right!

    I shared in the zoom meetings the following:
    Cost of cookie

    The “Other Ingredients” will fluctuate depending on your shopping. Trader Joe’s slightly more than Costco. This cost was based on a blend, all Costco except the blueberries and the cornmeal.

    We will do some additional testing with different grinds, we don’t want this to be a challenging item to find.

    Readers may be interested in knowing that the initial corn for this formula was blue corn flour. A bit harder to find but helps support indigenous corn farming. Due to price and inconsistent availability this was substituted with the yellow corn.

    So a good range for the cookie price $.85 to $.90 each, depending on where you shop.

    My husband asked how much each Energy Cookie costs to make and package, so I did the math. I calculated about $27 per batch of 32, or about $0.84 per cookie.

    Here’s how it breaks down*:

    • Dry ingredients provided by Community Loaves: $11.79
    • Cornmeal (PCC, which stocks medium grind; QFC had only coarse grind): $0.88
    • Blueberries (Costco): $3.24
    • Applesauce (Treetop unsweetened, 4-pack from Costco): $0.52
    • Pecans (Costco): $3.21
    • Honey (Costco, Wildflower Honey): $0.75
    • Raw sugar (Trader Joe’s): $1.16

    Subtotal: $21.55

    • Packaging (from Community Loaves): $5.12

    TOTAL: $26.67

    * Doesn’t include the cost of the vanilla.

    If you buy blueberries, applesauce, and pecans at Trader Joe’s (which I did the first time around), the added cost is about $2.50.
