After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002. The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have. It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
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!
