Yummmmm, this one is a keeper!

When Bread of Life sent me this fresh baked cookie to review, I have to be honest, I was skeptical. I haven’t had many really great gluten free cookies in the two years I have been gluten free. I don’t like the gritty, course, and crumbly texture of many gluten free baked treats. I am really picky about my cookies! But this one was different.

When I opened the package of this gluten free Snicker Doodle cookie, I was immediately struck by how big it was. It is huge!

I took my first bite and marveled at the texture- it did not have the gritty and grainy gluten free texture I was familiar with. Instead, I found this gluten free snicker doodle cookie to be dense and chewy with just the right balance of softness. The cinnamon sprinkled on top was just right, and did not overpower the flavor. I did not detect any type of aftertaste. Nice.

Now, I have to say, this is not the traditional snicker doodle I consumed before Celiac Disease. The flavor is richer and more “wholesome” tasting thanks to the sorghum flour and date paste. I have to admit this is one of my new favorite gluten free treats. If you want an extra sinful but heavenly treat, warm this gluten free cookie in the microwave for 10 seconds, and it will literally taste like it melts in your mouth.

Bread of Life warned me that these cookies- as with their other tasty muffins and cookies- are not low in fat or calories and should be consumed knowing they are a treat. I appreciated that they pointed this out to me, and didn’t’ try to pass their products off as healthy, wholesome “snacks.” Very honest. It also makes me feel good, knowing that these yummy concoctions are made in a dedicated gluten free facility.

PROS: perfectly chewy, rich spiced flavor, individually packed makes them perfectly portable, smooth texture

CONS: not quite a “traditional” snickerdoodle thanks to the sorghum flour

Rating: 5 stars

    That cookie looks delcious.
    Gluten Free Pantry has a “snickerdoodle” recipe (it is in combination with a white cake mix) and Cherrybrooks has a sugar cookie recipe that is good. Plus you can eat the dough raw because it ode snot contain eggs!:)
