Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free Cookies

Gluten Free Cookies we Enjoy (Dairy Free, Egg Free)

    Today I’m sharing allergy friendly cookies that are a staple in our home. Gluten free cookies seem to be available at just about every grocery store these days, and anything you can’t find locally, you can purchase on Amazon (or through a company’s website). However, have you stopped to think about if your gluten free cookies were made on shared equipment with wheat?

    I take the stance that anything made on shared equipment with an ingredient is not truly free from said ingredient. Once you understand just how tiny 20 parts per million is, you’ll quickly see why I take that stance.

    But I See The Certified Gluten Free Logo on Everything

    What may be a bit misleading is that products certified gluten free are allowed to be made on equipment that also processes wheat. Whilst they do have cleaning standards and testing in place, it’s all too easy for a little to slip thru the cracks. It’s also not uncommon for particles of some food types (think chocolate) to be more difficult to remove from machinery.

    Additionally, not every company tests every single batch. One company that I don’t vouch for was so incredibly diligent. They have third party testing and in-house testing for every single batch of their product. They’re certified gluten free and made on shared equipment with wheat.

    On the flip side, another company (also made on shared equipment with wheat) told me they test randomly every 3 months. It’s also certified gluten free.

    That’s a HUGE difference in testing… It just goes to show that getting in touch with companies is truly the only way to know how safe your food is.

    What I Love About The Cookies in the Photo

    Several of the companies produce their products in top 8/9 allergy free facilities. For those of you who are more than gluten free, this is a BIG plus. For some of you, homemade may be the only safe option, and I’ve got you covered with delicious cookie recipes.

    Learning to Love Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly Cookies

    I’d like you to know that it took years to find this many cookies (to purchase) that the kids really enjoy. They have my baking as a point of comparison and most brands simply don’t come close to homemade cookies.

    To find brands that you love, you’re going to have to put in the time, energy, and money to sample what’s available. Will there be food waste? Yes. See if your neighbor wants to have some free cookies.

    However, don’t let the thought of waste scare you off. If cookies are your jam, keep searching until you find at least one that you adore.
