Lucy's Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

While sprucing up my blog for Vegan MoFo, I glanced at my sidebar and noticed Gluten Free was one of my top tags. I was pretty surprised because I don't go out of my way to eat Gluten Free; actually, I eat a lot of gluten! Maybe it's because a lot of Vegan food is Gluten Free by default, which is great for everyone.

On a semi-related note, Omaha recently got a Akin's Natural Foods Market so you know I scoped it out for Vegan goodies. What I found were these Gluten Free Lucy's Chocolate Chip Cookies, and I decided to put them to the Laziest Vegans chocolate chip cookie test. If I know anything, it's a good chocolate cookie. Would gluten free measure up?

My first thought was "Pleasantly Surprised!" I've had some Gluten Free cookies that were straight up blah and tasteless, but these were excellent. They reminded me a little of Chips Ahoy, right down to the crunch of the cookie. Some people prefer a moist cookie but I can go either way. The chips were crispy, sweet and decadent. If you gave me a blind taste test, I'd never guess this was a Gluten Free cookie. So Lucy's Chocolate Chip Cookie is a win-win for everyone: Vegan, Gluten Free and Nut Free!

  2. I love/hate their cookies because they're yums, but if I open that box, which is like 4 serving sizes, I'm eating all the cookies, and that's like a days worth of calories. Alas.

  4. I was pleasantly surprised by those cookies too, they're one of the few US brands that have made it to the UK.

  5. If you can find the lucy's gingersnaps they are really awesome- and i could care less about the gluten/nuts but that makes them even more impressive.

  6. I've tried almost every flavor. Haven't run into one I haven't liked. That flour-y blend she uses really works. No weird taste or texture involved.
