  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    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.  For more information, you can visit their Web site at www.squirrelsbakery.com.

    We recently received gluten-free oatmeal cookie samples from Deborah Kayes Cookies, and their "Oatmeal Chocolate Pecan" cookie was calling my name!
    Before I go any further with this review, I have to say that these are not your ordinary gluten-free cookies. These cookies are loaded with certified gluten-free oats and contain no flours or refined sugars. In addition to this most of the ingredients are organic.  Their cookies have a bit of a rustic look since they are all hand made, and they are huge compared to most cookies on the market (gluten free or not). Each cookie is also individually wrapped which makes it convenient for those times when I have to rush out the door with the kids, or need to keep something in my desk for a snack.
    I took my first bite and was not sure what to expect...but I absolutely loved the soft, almost "just out of the oven" texture.  The cookie was not lacking in taste or texture and all the flavors were beautifully balanced.  I fell in love with Deborah Kayes Cookies, and since they use wholesome ingredients I can now satisfy my cookie craving guilt free!

    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.

    Doritos does make a few gluten-free versions.     
    Just wanted to chime in. During my 2 plus years of healing I had joint pain and muscle pain with some of the nightshade mainly peppers and tomato. I stopped them. I can now eat them again. My theory is when my gut gets cc my holey gut dumps some of my food in my blood stream and my already ticked off immune system let's me know what is allowed. Apparently for a time nightshades  of potato, tomatos, and peppers were an issue. I was able to gradually introduce potatoes first and then tomatos, then
