What's The Best gluten-free "oreo"?
0

13 posts in this topic

My DD turns 10 in a little less than a month (I can't believe I've been a mom for almost ten years!).

Her FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE cookie pre-Celiacs were Oreos (and Oreo Blizzards of course!). Well, obviously she doesn't eat them any more but I would REALLY love to have some almost-Oreos for her birthday!

I've seen a few gluten-free varieties of the chocolate cookies w/ white frosting in the middle but I want to know from experience which ones y'all like best (so far I'm leaning toward the Kinnikinnick) and are most like Oreos.

Thanks!

Kinnikinnick Kinne-Toos - They taste exactly like an oreo, but they are kind of spendy.

ditto on Kinnikinnick's K-too's. They are AWESOME!!! We all think they taste just like Oreos. They even react the same way in milk as an Oreo. I've tried a couple other brands of Oreo knock offs and none were right.

double ditto on the kinnitoo's...i can eat a whole dang bag of them in one sitting, which is incredibly unhealthy but oh so delicious with milk...in fact, I'm going to order some right now :)

Can there be a triple ditto??? Lol. Kinitoos rock...they are awesome. I've tried some of the others, and they didn't even come close to Kinnikinnick. I love that company!

I'll add my voice in support of Kinitoos. They are awesome!

Wow! Thanks so much! Glad to know I was going to make the right call (and y'all seem very passionate about your cookies!!).

Her standard fave right now is the Pamela's Double Chocolate we can get in the store when we do our regular shopping but boy will she be happy w/ "Oreos". I'll have to whip up a "Blizzard" for her, too!

Well in life you should be passionate...if not in general then for one or two things...I don't see how cookies wouldn't be high up on anyone's priority list!!! :P

Hubby (non-Celiac) agrees with me that Mi-Del is good. Hubby says it tastes just like Oreos. I agree. Of course, they need to be fresh. The 2 year old pack we found squirrelled away wasn't so hot. :-)

I've been planning on making an oreo cheesecake for my Sis's BD.

If you really want to make your daughter a special oreo treat, try this recipe. Take a bag of gluten-free oreos (I use the same amt. as in a normal sized bag of real oreos--I think the regular bag is maybe 18 ozs.) and put them in a food processor until they are ground into fine crumbs. You use the whole cookie, even the cream part. Once they are finely ground, throw in an 8 oz. brick of cream cheese and process that in the food processor with the crumbs. Form the mixture into balls (a heaping tbsp. in each ball) and put on a cookie sheet. Once all the balls are made, put them in a freezer for half an hour. Before removing them from the freezer, melt some chocolate in a double boiler. Take the balls out of the freezer and dip them, one at a time, in the melted chocolate. Put them on a plate and let the chocolate harden. They are so good and so chocolatey. If you want to make them fancy for a party or special occasion, you can even drizzle another color of chocolate on top as a decoration.

Just another idea...

You can also make an ice cream cake with said cookie crumbles (if your wee one is a fan of the Carvel-style cakes).

It really works best with a spring-form pan (like you use for making cheese cake).

Step 1 - line pan with parchmant paper (you may need a little bit of butter/grease to make it stick.)

Step 2 - Scoop and smooth in soft ice cream, to fill the pan about 1/2 way up.

Step 3 - Sprinkle on cookie crumbles

Step 4 - Freeze until ice cream sets up (at lease a few hours, easier overnight)

Step 5 - Scoop & smooth more ice cream on top (lay it on thick, so you don't have to work too many strokes or you will pull up the cookie layer)

Step 6 - Freeze until ice cream sets

Step 7 - Unmold and decorate! (DO NOT TRY TO ICE WITH BUTTERCREAM, it will freeze faster than you can work, a looser, coolwhip-type coating works better, or you can just cover the thing in more cookie crumbs)

I did this for a friend, with her two favorite flavors of ice cream and it was a big hit.

It also helps to have the cutting knife in hot water before trying to slice.

I have to say, K-too's are my favorite too.

    • 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. 
    • Pork Fried Rice  (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) Prep time: About 15 minutes Cook time: About 10 minutes Makes: 3-4 servings   Ingredients: 4 Pork Chops,  1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoons black pepper 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil 1/2 large or 1 small onion 2 large carrots 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 green cabbage, very finely sliced 1-2 heads of broccoli, roasted and salted(optional) 2-3 eggs 2-3 cups cooked white rice  2 Tablespoons gluten-free Tamari or Coconut Aminos Sriracha (optional)   Instructions: 1. Cut pork chops into small bite sized pieces.  2. Next add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a large wok and heat on medium-high heat for a about a minute.   3. Add your chopped pork chops to the wok and season with the salt, black pepper.  Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. 4. While your pork chops are cooking, dice your onion, mince your garlic cloves, chop your carrots and finely slice your cabbage. 5. Once your pork is lightly browned, add all your veggies and stir fry over medium-high heat fro about 5 minutes. 6. Make a hole in the middle of your veggies and add your eggs.  Scramble your eggs with a big metal spatula until they are cooked and then mix everything together. 7. Add your cooked rice and about 2 Tablespoons of Tamari. Mix everything together and cook for another 3-4 minutes or just enough to warm up the rice.
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!
