Who knew gluten free could be so tasty?
Um not me. I know many people who follow a gluten free diet and not once have I heard any of them complain when it comes to flavor. But I am a skeptic. I know, I know, but I can’t help it. While I do appreciate everyone’s opinions and quite often I am the one asking for them because I like to hear what people have to say, I still I like to try things on my own and go from there.
Over the last few months I have heard a lot about Udi’s
. I have also seen a few reviews on them, read them word for word. I was intrigued. You see my daughter has a lot of allergies and eczema. Her major allergy is peanuts. It is life threatening and not something to take lightly. She has low level allergies to wheat, eggs, milk, soy, peas and other things. Since discovering her allergies I have been wondering just how well a gluten free diet would benefit her. I spoke to a few Dr’s and they said “with her low levels it probably wouldn’t make much of a difference & a change to her diet isn’t necessary”. So I either go with a medical professionals or go with my gut. Yeah I’m going to choose the later.
So naturally when I was asked if I would like to try some Udi’s cookies I said yes. I mean who doesn’t like cookies and it would give my family the chance to try something gluten free. Two birds…one stone. Win win.
Chocolate chip, Oatmeal Raisin & Snickerdoodles…oh my!
To say these cookies were good would be an understatement. They were delicious, soft, full of flavor and melt in your mouth good. If you’re like me and have to try for yourself then go get some. You will not regret it. And at only $5.00 a box they’re pretty reasonable.
Udi’s does more then just cookies though. They have a full line of products to cater to those who live a gluten free lifestyle such as bagels, breads, buns, granola and more.
This right here, that picture, that is what makes these cookies a new favorite in our house. Seeing my baby girl enjoying a cookie and not having to worry if there are nuts in them. I can’t tell you how many times she has come home from school saying that her class had cookies but she couldn’t have any because there were nuts in them. Finding a store out here that carries Udi’s products is next on my list so I can bring some to her school for her teacher to store on the days someone brings in something containing nuts.
