Mac-n-Mo’s Story

Mac–n-Mo’s Morselicious Treats were created out of love by Mo (that’s me) for Mac (that’s my Dad).

Mac N MoIn February 2010, my Dad survived two massive heart attacks and underwent quadruple bypass surgery. The operation was successful, and he was discharged with very clear and strict dietary guidelines. To further complicate things, Dad is a diabetic.

Low-salt, low-sugar, low-fat, low-cholesterol, plant-based, more fiber. None of this, some of that. More of this, less of that. Thus began Mo’s jingle’s:

 

Cookies have eggs, sugar and butter fat. Mac-n-Mo’s have none o’ that!  

Dad’s new diet proved to be a giant challenge, and he craved treats. One Saturday morning in March, he begged me to bake something sweet. My challenge was to find all-natural ingredients with no preservatives, very little salt, no added sugar, fiber, etc. Mom and I went to several grocery stores, and I searched for as many tasty “legal” ingredients as I could find.

By the third store, Mom asked, “What do you plan on making with all this?” Shrugging my shoulders, I replied, “I have no idea, but I’m going to do my best to create something magical (which became 'MORSELICIOUS') for Dad.”

After mixing many batches, we found a winner.  My mom, sister, and I devoured them and most importantly, Dad relished each morsel, exclaiming, “these are magic!” Translation: MORSELICIOUS! We shared batches with our friends, and soon I was taking orders.

After countless requests from customers to create their own healthy treats at home, she began selling her grain-free Morselicious Mixa blend of almond meal, coconut flour, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and spices.

Mo graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and became a Board Certified Health Coach (AADP). She has since written two cookbooks featuring Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix.

  1. Hi Mo!

    Wondering how the Morselicious treats rate on the glycemic index? A friend of mine has lost lots of weight just making sure she eats mostly low-glycemic foods.

    1. HI Charlotte,
      Thanks for the question.
      On Weight Watchers, 2 morsels = 1 point.
      Each morsel contains 1g of sugar and the sugar is ONLY from
      the cranberry in the Pumpkin Cranberry, which is fructose
      and the Chocolate Chip 1 g of sugar is from the vegan chocolate.
      Do you want more specifics?
      Thanks! Mo

  2. Hi Mo,
    I’m so glad that I was able to get the last 3 packages at Erewhon’s. My family and I each enjoyed the different selections. I will be placing an order when I return to NYC so I can get your e-cookbook of Morsilicious recipes. They fit so well into my new low carb, low glycemic, mostly Paleo-type lifestyle. So glad to have discovered you and your fabulous product.
