Bring yoga into your kitchen with these adorable yoga cookie cutters from Yummi Yogi. The only yoga shaped cookie cutters on the market, these made in the USA cutters come in five different asanas.
Created by New Jersey mom, Amy Dube, to combine her passion for yoga and baking, Amy says that, “We can all slow down and be creative in our own way. And in doing so, teach our children about healthy living in and out of the kitchen.”
Yummi Yogi Cookie Cutters come in 5 Yoga poses that include:
Crescent Lunge Pose (Anjaneyasana)
Downward Facing Dog Pose (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
Tree Pose (Vrksasana)
Warrior 2 Pose (Virabhadrasana II)

You can purchase them as a combo pack of 5 for $40.00, or individually for $8.50 each. The pretty cloth drawstring storage bag retails for $3.00.
Yummi Yogi cookie cutters are great for so much more than just making simple sugar cookies. Here are three great ideas with recipes from Amy. And an awesome Yummi Yogi giveaway at the end.
No need to fight with your kids to eat their fruit. Getting them to cut fruit into yoga shapes with the Yummi Yogi Warrior Pose cookie cutter is super easy. Simply slice your watermelon (mom handles this) into inch thick slices and firmly press the cookie cutter into the fruit as shown above. Any large fruit will do, and in no time you’ll have a platter full of fun delicious melon that is sure to disappear in minutes.
Gluten-free Granola Yogis
Want a quick, healthy snack without the baking and mess? Here’s a simple recipe for granola yogis that is sure to be a hit with the young and young-at-heart. This recipe from Amy is gluten-free, vegan and easy to make. You can also substitute your own ingredients for extra fun.
2 Cups Rolled oats
2 Cups Brown Rice Cereal
1/2 C Chopped Almonds
1/2 C Chopped Dried Cherries
1/2 C Shredded Coconut
3/4 C Brown Rice Syrup
1/2 C Almond or Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
Combine the dry ingredients and set aside. Combine the liquids and warm for 40 seconds. Add the liquid to the dry mix and stir well. If the mix is too dry, add a little more warmed brown rice syrup. Place your Yummi Yogi cookie cutters on a baking sheet and fill with the granola. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour. Remove the granola gently from the cutters by pulling the cookie cutter away from the granola, the granola should slide right out. Best if stored in refrigerator.
