Snack Series: Allergen-free Cookie Duo

“One for you, one for me. One for you, two for me.” When my sister and I played this game years ago it was animal crackers we were trading and dunking into milk as a bedtime snack. Somehow she always ended up with more cookies on her side of the table…

But who needs cookies made with wheat and butter, anyway? Especially when companies like Enjoy Life bring us so many great allergen-free options! The two cookie varieties I am writing about today are both from the soft-baked collection and true to their description have a cake-like texture to them.

The Enjoy Life soft baked happy apple cookies have a mild fruity flavor, while the soft baked double chocolate brownie cookies are the ones that will satisfy the chocolate lover in the family. Both are made from a sorghum flour base with fruit juice concentrates. What you won’t find in these cookies are wheat, milk, eggs, or soy. And despite the fact that the happy apple cookies have a nutty taste, they contain no nuts. These are also great for those on a gluten-free diet.

The cookies come in boxes of twelve, which can easily be divvied up in baggies for the lunchbox. What’s your favorite allergen-free snack cookie?

About the snack series: Snacks without wheat, eggs, soy, nuts, and milk can be really difficult to find. That’s why I am always on the lookout for easy on-the-go snacks that can be thrown in a lunch box, backpack, or handbag. This is one of a series of posts on allergen-free snacks. If you have a suggestion for an allergen-free snack that I should try, please e-mail me at multifoodallergies at gmail dot com or leave a comment here.
