Gluten Free Cookies

When my daughter was first diagnosed, we assumed cookies were a thing of the past, so we were pleasantly surprised to learn there are many GF versions available. Of course, most of them are too expensive for regular consumption.

I was beyond thrilled to see that Betty Crocker has gotten in the gluten free game. Woo hoo! So far, Betty is offering GF chocolate chip cookies, yellow cake, chocolate cake, brownies, and chocolate chip brownies. We've only tried the chocolate chip cookies, but they were a hit. We liked them just as much as the "regular" chocolate chip cookies. At a little over $4 per box, the mix is a bit pricier than the non-GF versions, but still cheaper than most GF cookie mixes.

Other GF cookies we've tried include:

  • Mi-Del Arrowroot: These were not a hit with my kids. We found the texture a bit dry and... off.
  • Mi-Del Chocolate Chip: We liked these more than the arrowroot, but they weren't our favorite GF cookies. I don't see us buying these again.
  • Pamela's Chocolate Chip: We love these! These are our favorite prepared GF cookies. They're a little expensive, so we don't splurge on them often, but they're excellent for an occasional treat.
  • Pamela's Mini Chocolate Chip: These have a slightly different flavor than their larger counterparts, but they're still quite tasty. Their smaller size makes them a bit too easy to eat, though!
  • Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Chip Mix: This mix is easy to make and the resulting cookies are good.
  • Gluten-Free Pantry Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix: So far, I've been impressed with all of Gluten-Free Pantry's offerings, and the chocolate chip cookie mix is no exception.

    Why are you still reading? Go out and eat some gluten free cookies!
