Snickerdoodle Cookies by Enjoy Life
Tasty, gluten-free cookies
Here’s a brand that you should get to know if you have food allergies: Enjoy Life. I’ve stumbled across this company numerous times at my local supermarket, and so far I am incredibly impressed.
According to the package, all Enjoy Life products avoid the ten most common food allergens: wheat / gluten; dairy; peanuts; tree nuts; egg; soy; fish; shellfish; sulfites; sesame. The products are made in a fully nut and gluten-free facility, so even those who have life threatening allergies can eat the company’s products with impunity. These products were inspired by Joy, the mother of one of the founders. She baked her way back to health by eliminating gluten and other common allergens from her diet.
Ever had a gluten free, dairy free, egg free cookie? Most of them are as hard and dry as rocks, and taste about the same. That’s the problem with many allergy products; while they help you avoid allergens, they lose a lot in flavour.
My son and I (the family taste-testers) started with the Snickerdoodle cookies. (I couldn’t resist a cookie with such an interesting name!) The package promised that the cookies would be soft-baked, and I was hoping they would live up to the promise.
After tasting them, my hopes were confirmed. This product is really good! Not only did the Snickerdoodles live up to the package claims, they surpassed my expectations. These cookies are wonderfully soft and chewy. They are flavoured with a bit of cinnamon, and are a nice complement with a cup of tea or coffee. Two cookies give you about 130 calories, but they are worth every one.
I was very happy to have found these cookies at the local supermarket, in the natural foods aisle. It’s a positive step that allergy products are now available in more places than the local health food store.
The ingredients of these gluten-free cookies include: sorghum flour; date paste; grape, apple and pear juice concentrates; pure brown cane sugar; expeller-pressed safflower oil; natural rice dextrin; ground flaxseed; water; baking soda; xanthan gum; vanilla; salt; cinnamon; rosemary extract.
