No big deal, but I just had my first cookie in over a year and a half. Almost all the cookies in my healthfood store contains soy so I haven't been able to eat them, but today I found Pamela's "Simplebites Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies". I don't know if I can eat chocolate yet. I did OK with some (can't remember the brand) back at the beginning, but since then I had a "gluten free" chocolate bar that I got at a craft fair and didn't do so well. That was almost a year ago. Thought I'd try these and see what happens.

Well, they sure taste good to me. They are mini's, so I have had four of them so far. I was going to try making some of those flourless cookies using cashew butter instead of peanut butter but they don't carry cashew butter at my local shop. Maybe next time I'm in "the big city" I can find some. In the meantime, I feel a small victory having found these Pamela's cookies.

Merry Christmas to me! :D

Woohoo!!! I'm pretty excited about cookies myself these days. I finally went and picked up the Nov/Dec Living Without that has cookies on the cover. Flip back to the recipes and there is a picture that could have been taken of my grammy's ginger cookies. I started to cry. I won't be making them until the weekend but I thought I'd live the rest of my life without my grammy's cookies. Isn't amazing how wonderful cookies are for the soul? :D Merry Christmas to both of us!

You know what I'd really like? A gluten-free ice cream cookie - you know, the ones that are like ice cream cone with the frosting inside. I'm sure there is no such thing, at least not without soy. But they do have Udi's gluten-free waffles at my local store. I could probably console myself with some of those with ice cream on top. :wub:

I'm NOT going to go nuts with all of these treats, but since it's the Holidays, and everyone else is pigging out on fattening goodies, it feels good to have SOMETHING special to eat.

My favorites are the ginger snap mini's! The ones you got have soy lecithin, don't they? It's been a while since I got that flavor, they are pretty yummy. Good find...

Nope. No soy. The only "ingredient" I thought might be iffy is "gluten-free natural flavorings", but I am happy to say that I have had no reaction whatsoever. YIPPEEE!!!!!!

I love those, and the ginger snapz, too! They are tiny and crunchy, just like I prefer them. Unfortunately, cookies are a bit off limts of me at the moment... :(

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
