The objective was to determine the nutritional and functional characteristics of cookies with the addition of Gurgueia nut and soursop residue. Three whole-grain cookie formulations were developed from a standard (SC). Whole-grain cookies 2 (WC2) had greater acceptance and preference. Proximate composition, microbiological, and bioactive compound analyses were performed for WC2 and SC. WC2 exhibited higher levels of proteins, lipids, ash, total phenolics, condensed tannins, vitamin C, and antioxidant activity, with lower carbohydrate content and equivalent energy. In the microbiological analysis, the cookies were shown to be adequate for consumption. Cookies produced with regional raw materials proved to be a healthier option. © 2022 Taylor & Francis.
