As Black History Month begins, Black-Owned, Female-Owned and San Diego favorite, Maya’s Cookies has announced and launched the Black History Month Collection.
“This year’s Black History collection is a love letter to a few of the icons that have made a major impact on both my family and I through the years. It is important to me to not only honor Black change makers with these cookies but to use specialty ingredients from Black-owned businesses as well. I hope you find joy in each of these cookies as I have found joy making them.” Maya says.
The Black History Month Collection includes:
A one-of-a-kind cookie inspired by Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman and the incredible cultural impact they made together.
A black-out dark chocolate cookie, rich and complex. 72% Extra Dark Kanda Chocolate chunks get added to our creamy chocolate dough and finished with a dusting of silver and purple edible glitter. Featuring Kanda Chocolates, a Black-owned, woman-owned company sourcing straight from Ghana.

The First Lady:
Inspired by Michelle Obama, her mother Marian, and generations of black girl magic. A celebration of incredible, resilient black women everywhere and those that raise them.
Using Cabernet Sauvignon from a Black-owned, vegan winery, Maya soaks marionberries in the delicious jammy wine. The compote then gets mixed into our classic sugar cookie dough with sweet white chocolate and a hint of lemon.
