    Gluten-Free Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars by Squirrel's Bakery

    Celiac.com 15/15/2009 - When I first opened the package of Squirrel’s Bakery Gluten-Free Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars I was surprised by their unique shape: The package contained two bars that are approximately 2.5” x 3” and they are around an inch thick­so they resemble a brownie in size and shape.  They aren't kidding when they use the terms “thick & hearty” to describe these cookie bars.

    In addition to being gluten-free, Squirrel’s Bakery thick & hearty cookie bars are also soy, dairy and nut-free, so they will appeal to those of you who have additional food intolerances or allergies, as well as to those who have celiac disease.  The bars are made using quality ingredients like Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oats, organic brown rice flour and Enjoy Life gluten, soy, dairy & nut free chocolate chips, and they are also a good source of fiber, iron, calcium and protein (the bars do contain eggs).

    The first thing I noticed when biting into the Squirrel’s Gluten-Free Coconut and Chocolate Chip bar is the large coconut flakes, which tasted wonderful.  This taste was enhanced by the wonderful combination of their allergy-friendly chocolate chips, along with their blend of gluten-free flours and oats.  The texture was very nice, it was not too moist and not too dry­I’ve never been a fan of overly-soft cookies or bars. 

    The last question that must be answered about this excellent gluten-free “cookie”: Could I get used to eating “cookie bars” instead of regular old cookies?  Sure…I really can't imagine anyone who would not enjoy these special treats!  They should please the most die hard cookie lovers, and offer a unique take on a traditional treat. 

    Squirrel’s Bakery is a small family owned cookie manufacturing business based in Virginia Beach, Virginia and was founded in 2009.

    Celiac.com 11/19/2009 - Over the weekend my wife made a batch of Doodles Cookies Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix.  This gluten free cookie mix is very easy to prepare, and the gluten free cookies were ready in about 45 minutes, from start to finish.  We ended up with around two dozen very tasty chocolate chip cookies.  On top of their great taste, Doodles Cookies are all-natural and organic, and contain whole grain oat and brown rice flours as their base ingredients. 
    My entire family, including my two kids, really liked these cookies and would recommend them to anyone on a gluten-free diet...or not!

    Celiac.com 05/14/2012 - Petit Bites Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Coconut Nibbles are not your traditional coconut macaroon, and maybe that's why I might just consider it my favorite. 
    They have a beautifully golden shell on the outside, and a soft and chewy coconut inside, mixed with enough chocolate chips to satisfy any chocolate lover.  The best part is that I don't feel guilty after indulging in a few.  They are made with only five pure ingredients (sweet potato is actually second on the ingredient list, but you'd never know) and are free from preservatives, trans fats and cholesterol.  They are a must try if you love coconut and chocolate!

    There are good and bad versions of milk chocolate chip cookies...and then there are great versions like The Bakery Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies.
    I happen to love the soft and chewy-style chocolate chip cookies, and these cookies definitely fit that bill. They have a fresh-baked taste and feel, and the aroma that poured forth when I first opened the package was too good to put into words—their taste was simply outstanding.
    Each package contains 5 large cookies, and I'll bet you can't eat just one!
    The Bakery Gluten-Free Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies are available in the bakery section of your local Walmart.
