Did someone say cookies?

Yes…cookie monster is back with a vengeance.  A vengeance, I tell you!

After a couple weeks of feasting off of brownies and ice cream, I needed some cookies in my life.  And it just so happened that my roomie and I decided to splurge at Lucky’s again last week and picked up another type of cookie from My Dad’s Cookies.  It was actually a tough decision.  I had promised her the Lemon Drop cookies…but they didn’t have those in stock this time around.  So after a lot of thought and a lot of circling the table…I finally chose…

Chocolate Chip.

Iconic.  And a personal favorite of mine.  I mean, who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie, right?

Well, with the brownies and the ice cream polished off…cookies were dessert this week.  After dinner, as always, after cleaning up the dishes and the kitchen, I got ready to serve dessert.  This time…it was easy.  The cookies were on my counter and I just simply popped open the plastic container and fished out a serving for each of us.  These cookies are little bite-size morsels that I hoped would be as good as they looked.  I walked Cathy’s serving out to her, then returned to the kitchen for mine.

Settling in…it was the moment of absolute truth…

One bite of the My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies…and I was more than happy with this classic choice.  No one would even fathom that these little cookies were gluten-free unless you told them.  They had just the slightest bit of crunch on the edges and this soft, chewy center.  Each cookie was about two to three bites, and each bite guaranteed a hit of chocolate chips and sweet vanilla flavor.  There was the right amount of flavor throughout these cookies.  The vanilla essence and the chocolate chips gave it that classic, homemade, chocolate chip cookie feel.  I meant to warm the next night’s up in the microwave to give them that “fresh out of the oven” appeal, but didn’t.  Nevertheless, I was beyond amazed by the quality and taste of these.  They weren’t super moist, but they weren’t dry either.  They hit that perfect midpoint that gave you both the crunch and the soft center.  And…come on…CHOCOLATE CHIPS!

Classic cookies with not-so-classic ingredients.  Gluten-free, after all, takes some special flour blends and some TLC.  But that’s what makes these cookies even more extraordinary!  Let’s take a look at the science and nutrition behind My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are made from a gluten-free flour blend (brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, xanthan gum), palm oil, chocolate chips, sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, agave syrup, cream of tartar, baking powder, and salt.  These cookies are gluten-free, dairy free, nut free, and kosher.

A serving of the My Dad’s Cookies Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies is three of the bite-size cookies.  There are six servings per container.  These three cookies will provide you with 150 calories and 7 grams of fat.  In addition, you will be taking in 15 mg cholesterol, 60 mg sodium, and 13 grams of sugar.  Cookies have sugar…so, while that seems high…it’s a dessert…a treat…COOKIES!  Also, these three cookies will give you less than 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein.  This is not a filling dessert, but it is…oh, so sweet!

Once again, My Dad’s Cookies proves that it is definitely a brand to be reckoned with on the gluten free dessert market.  While I have just discovered these amazing little treats at the newest grocery store in the area, I am glad to have been brave enough to shell out the $7.99 price for each container so far.  None have really let me down, and all have been great to eat after a long day and a light meal.

My Dad’s Cookies took on the classic chocolate chip cookie and made it into one delicious, bite-size, gluten-free treat.  I will definitely buy these again.
