Hi there!

 

Has anybody tried them yet?  I'm scared to death to put anything different in my mouth : )  It contains buckwheat flour now.

 

 

Thanks!

I haven't tried the Snickerdoodles, but I LOVE their Crispy Sugar Cookies. They are great with a cup of tea or coffee... or by themselves.

Oooohhh snickerdoodles... my favorite grocer just changed up their gluten-free section, I will have to see if these are there when I shop on Friday.  If they are, I will try them out and report back!  I really like their soft chocolate brownie cookies, but I try not to buy them as I destroy them in a few sittings.

I have had them along with my dd and ds (ages 6 and 2) with no adverse reactions.  But everyone has different levels of sensitivity.

Enjoy life is a reputable gluten-free company. I think we just had those for lunch here at the Celiac Symposium. I didn't like them before and they taste the same now. Lots of people loved them so I think it's just me.

"Buckwheat has no relation to wheat, which makes it a safe alternative for anyone avoiding the gluten grains. In fact, like quinoa, buckwheat isn't even a grain- it's a seed related to rhubarb and sorrel. The health benefits of buckwheat are truly staggering: It's a rich source of fiber, magnesium, all eight essential amino acids, and even protein. Buckwheat also contains an antioxidant called rutin, a flavonoid that can lower the risk of developing high cholesterol and high blood pressure, as well as chiro-inositol, which drives carbohydrates into your muscles without raising insulin levels. As always...check that it hasn't been grown and processed near wheat".

This information was taken from a book that I have on Gluten Free. I'm not sure if the title can be mentioned, so for now I will leave it at that...unknown. I am new for this site and I'm not sure what can be mentioned or not. I wish that these informative items could be mentioned as to it could give aid to others. Hope this information has helped.

I personally do use Buckwheat, and have not had any problems.

Enjoy life also caters to allergen free above and beyond gluten.  They have recently "tweeked" some products and really improved them!  I tried the improved soft chocolate chip cookies, and I will eat them again if I don't have time to make some.

I finally tried the snickerdoodles. While they taste NOTHING like a real snickerdoodle, they are OK. I still prefer the crispy sugar cookies. By the way, gluten-free flour works fine in making homemade snickerdoodles. I use Cup-4-Cup.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
