Posts Tagged ‘gluten-free cookies’

A couple of months ago in a blog post about gluten-free cookies, I mentioned gluten-free Liz Lovely cookies. To read that post, click here. At the time I spoke of them, I had only recently discovered these cookies at my local health food store, and the only kind I had tried was the gluten-free chocolate fudge cookies (which are so thick and moist that they taste like brownies!). Since then, I have directly ordered more cookies from Liz Lovely online and have tried a few other flavors.

To make sure that my tastebud data wasn’t skewed, I have had a few other people try these cookies, and they like them, too! So, the next contest on will be for gluten-free Liz Lovely cookies! You may be thinking, “I don’t need to eat gluten-free foods, so why would I sign up for this contest?” These cookies are amazing, regardless of the fact that they are gluten-free! (Liz Lovely does, in fact, carry cookies that are not gluten-free, but in this contest I will be promoting the gluten-free ones, because I know there are a lot of people who actually do need gluten-free.)

So, for the person whose name is drawn for this contest on, I will pay the Liz Lovely company ( to mail you three packs of cookies–each pack contains two large cookies. You will receive one pack of Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle, one pack of Gluten-Free Chocolate Fudge, and one pack of Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Mint. I will hold the drawing on October 8, 2012, and will notify the winner through email.

With some gluten-free cookies, you take a bite and the taste is different enough from a “real” cookie that you are immediately disappointed.  I think the following three types of gluten-free cookies are just as good as “real” cookies.

1.  Jo-Sef Square Cinnamon Cookies—The taste and consistency of these cookies remind me of windmill cookies.  In addition to being gluten-free, these cookies are also lactose-free and nut-free, making them a good option for those with multiple food allergies.

2.  Glutino Lemon Wafer Cookies—These cookies are similar to the popular Voortman strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla wafer cookies.  Besides being gluten-free, Glutino Lemon Wafer Cookies do not contain dairy products (they may contain traces of nuts, though, so beware those of you with nut allergies).

3.  Liz Lovely Chocolate Fudge Cookies—I saved these for last because the above two kinds of cookies are quite excellent, but these Liz Lovely cookies are AMAZING.  I just discovered them at my local health food store a few weeks ago, and when I went back to get more, they were gone!  These cookies are wonderfully soft and thick.  There are only two large cookies per pack, and they might seem too expensive (they’re $3.99 per pack), but I assure you they are well worth trying.  The Liz Lovely website says these chocolate fudge cookies “put brownies to shame,” and it really is true.  You have to try them.  These chocolate fudge cookies are wheat, dairy, and egg-free.
