Rickaroons

We make coconut energy bars that taste like dessert. We are a father and son company in San Diego that uses 100% organic, vegan, and gluten free ingredients to make a healthy snack perfect any time of day (or night) and we take pride in our ingredients so you can take pride in eating Rickaroons.

It is the all-of-the-above cookie: gluten free, vegan, organic, Paleo, soy free, and most importantly – tastes like heaven. The coconut and almond butter not only taste great together, but yield a nice, slow-burning fuel for your body. We eat them in the Rickaroons office first thing in the morning before a swim, as a mid-day snack to stay energized, and as a reward for a good, hard day’s work.

Health and happiness go hand in hand, so grab a Rickaroons and share with someone you love!

From our family to yours – enjoy!

– Grant LeBeau (Rick’s son and partner)

Rickaroons Mission

Create delicious, wholesome, irresistible baked goods…then distribute them to discerning cookie lovers everywhere.

Rickaroon Flavors Include:

Chocolate Blonde

The Chocolate Blonde is The Original. It’s the base of the Rickaroon pyramid of success. It is what all of our flavors are built upon – a foundation of coconut, almond butter, and chocolate chips – a perfect combination. Imagine your grandma’s chocolate chip cookies. Now take out the pound of butter. Add in organic almonds and coconut. You are left with foods that will make you feel good while you eat AND after you eat. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Megaroon

This is our Super Food option, perfect for people looking for an extra umph of nutrition. Chia seeds provide a stable source of long lasting energy as well as fiber and protein. Cacao is the fundamental ingredient in chocolate and is full of antioxidants. The chia seeds and cacao nibs that we add are of course 100% organic, and add an extra crunch that helps make this one of our best sellers. The Megaroon happens to be particularly popular at yoga studios and Crossfit gyms.

Mocha

Our mocha flavor – this is for serious coffee lovers or people looking for a little pick-me-up. Not for the feint of heart, we put enough espresso in to satisfy a serious coffee craving. Next time you are falling asleep in a meeting, grab a Mocha – a delicious combination of Chocolate and Espresso.

Mint to Be

We took the Chocolate Blonde and added cacao and a delightfully cooling, delicious mint that made this an immediate favorite in the Rickaroons office. Boldly minty, doubly chocolaty. Try the Mint to Be for dessert…and breakfast.

Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice

We took the Chocolate Blonde and added a seasonal twist – Pumpkin Pie Spice. This flavor is our best seller all fall long but it’s only here for a limited time. We will keep the Pumpkin Spice until New Year’s Eve and then put it in hibernation until next October. So get them while you can!

Rick LeBeau, Founder of Rickaroons

Rick LeBeau

first entered the natural foods business 30 years ago when he was looking for sponsors as a triathlete. The rest is a lot of history. In this history he had a son that he spent a lot of energy on/in the sun, pool, and waves, on the diamond, court, and field playing every sport possible. The need for sustained energy even a kid would love started the evolution towards Rickaroons. Rick had been giving away Rickaroons for years, but after too many people refused to believe his cookies didn't have flour, eggs, or butter because they "tasted too good", he knew it was time to spread the good word...and launch Rickaroons.

Rick describes himself as both a lifelong health conscious athlete and dessert connoisseur who was inspired to create an “irresistible cookie” that doubles as a “clean burning energy food for pre and post workouts.”

 

 

 


Grant LeBeau, Partner

Grant LeBeau

is the son of Rick(aroons). When not lobbying to change the name of the company to "Grantaroons", he can be found playing water polo, surfing, lifeguarding on beaches in San Diego, coaching high school water polo, and trying his best.

"It started with love - the love for a woman and the love of a healthy life.

I was just a kid when my dad, Rick, created the fist version of Rickaroons. He made them to comfort and support the woman he loved and cared for during her battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Although I was young, I still realized that Rickaroons represented his love for a strong woman and a healthy lifestyle."

Are Rickaroons a dessert or a healthy snack?

Answer: Both. Rickaroons were created by Rick as a clean burning energy food for pre or post workouts. Since Rick is both a lifelong health conscious athlete AND a lifelong dessert connoisseur, Rickaroons turned out to be a delicious dessert as well. So eat Rickaroons any time of day and feel good about the dietary choice you've made.

What is the shelf life of Rickaroons?

Answer: They stay fresh for 3 months without any refrigeration. However, refrigeration does extend the shelf life of Rickaroons.

Do Rickaroons need to be refrigerated?

Answer: Rickaroons do NOT need to be refrigerated. Each Rickaroon is individually packaged air tight and because coconut oil is also a natural preservative, the shelf life is extended naturally and organically.

How do Rickaroons come packaged?

Answer: Every Rickaroon is individually packaged. This helps keep them fresh. It also lets you grab one for your backpack, purse, or glove compartment - perfect for on the go. Every order of Rickaroons comes in a beautiful box carrying 12 Rickaroons.

What is coconut palm nectar?

Answer: Coconut Palm Nectar is the cleanest, slowest burning, low glycemic index, eco-friendly and sustainable sweetener we can find. It is delicious and has a nutritional profile that includes many minerals our bodies use. These include magnesium, potassium, and manganese.

Is coconut palm nectar leading to deforestation?

Answer: No. The nectar itself comes from the flower of the palm tree. This means it is completely sustainable and done so without damage to the eco-system. Additionally, our coconut palm nectar supplier utilizes 20,000 small farms that are not mono-culture groves of palm trees. The trees co-exist with numerous bio-diverse plants in Indonesia.

Where does your coconut palm nectar come from?

Answer: We source our coconut palm nectar from 20,000+ small, sole proprietorship farms in Indonesia. The workers on these farms have seen average daily wages increased 100%. Just another reason to feel good about eating Rickaroons.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
