UDIs-Gluten-Free-Soft-Baked-Cookies-Maple-Pecan-Chocolate-Chip-698997807551We’ve all been there before: wandering down the gluten-free aisle of the grocery store and face-to-face with a shiny new package of cookies that promises to be the best you’ve ever had. Then you get home, rip into the bag, only to discover that these packaged cookies are crumbly, hard and disgusting.

Luckily, Udi’s Gluten-Free has introduced three new soft baked shelf-stable cookies into their product line: Peanut Butter Coconut, Sea Salt Caramel Cashew and Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip. These cookies are sweet, salty and crunchy, and are all made with non-GMO cereal grains.

If you’re a fan of freshly baked cookies you will be a fan of these. From the smell that escapes the package right when you open it, to the buttery, sweet and salty bites, these cookies are a new favorite GF treat. If you still have your nose up in the air and won’t settle for anything less than “fresh baked,” try throwing one of these bad boys in the microwave for 10-15 seconds and then tell us you still don’t love it.

Know what the best part of soft baked cookies are? The fact that when you open the package, these cookies are still in whole cookies, not crumbly little pieces at the bottom of the package. Plus these cookies bypass most GF cookies out there as the mouthfeel is not compromised. That’s right, it even feels like a cookie! There’s no dusty aftertaste or turning into paste after a few chews.

Something I’ve noticed about GF cookies is that they always seem teeny-tiny compared to their wheat-filled counterparts. These cookies, however, are huge by GF cookie standards with each cookie measuring about 2 inches in diameter. So while it’s still hard to adhere to the one cookie serving size, it’s not impossible! Note: all three flavors contain egg and nuts.
