Ami Karnosh

Yummy Mummy Cookie owner, Ami Karnosh loves making delish, nutrient-dense cookies that derive minerals and vitamins from nettles, chia seeds and even kelp, for moms and their families. And when she’s not busy baking, she’s hanging with her daughter, Sophia.

Where she’ll be on a sunny day: Karnosh and her family can be found cruising around the neighborhood or the Burke Gilman Trail on their bikes, or picnicking alongside the animals at the zoo, when the sun is shining. Recently though they’ve taken to climbing the outdoor wall at the Northshore YMCA. Super fun!

Her must-have mom product: Running a close second to her own Yummy Mummy Cookies, is the Hyland’s Kids’ Kit, a homeopathic kit that’s perfect for everything from little bumps to fevers. She loves giving both as gifts to new moms!

The best thing about being a Seattle mom: With so many things to do both indoors and out, adventures are all around. Karnosh also loves the many support groups and meet-up groups around the city, and takes full advantage of the many family-friendly restaurants and businesses where she can get through the daily checklist while the kids play.
