One of the things my youngest really enjoys is cookies. But because he’s supposed to follow a gluten-free diet, he can’t have just any cookie he wants. Recently we tried making cookies from Among Friends. Their line of gluten-free baking mixes includes:
Suzie Q’s – Our best seller for the young and young at heart, a tender and toothsome wholegrain classic studded with premium chocolate chips.
- Evan’s Heavenly – A heavenly oatmeal raisin cookie: the perfect union of mellow, protein-rich spelt and oats, almond meal and cinnamon.
- Trish the Dish – Our “any kind of fruit” crisp topping turns any time into a splurge without the guilt. Nutty oats, whole grains and spices make a delightful gluten-free dessert, breakfast, or snack.
- CJ’s Double Chocolate Cookie Mix – Our gluten-free ”brownie bite” is krinkly, tender, chewy and soft—all those seeming opposites that make brownies so beloved. The secret: superior chocolate and a hint of espresso.
- Phil ’em Up Cookie Mix – A staff favorite: hearty, happy, healthy and slow-burning gluten-free oatmeal cookies packed with chocolate, coconut and cranberries.
- Shane’s Sweet ‘n Spicy Cookie Mix – Grandma’s favorite molasses crinkle has nothing on this gluten-free version. Nutty oat flour and secret spices give these gems just the right flavor and texture.
We made the Phil’em Up Chocolate Cranberry Cookie Mix. My favorite thing about these cookies is that the ingredient list didn’t read like my college chem class. The ingredients are recognizable things like natural brown sugar, chocolate chips, dried cranberries and coconut.
To make the cookies you combine the contents of the package with egg, vanilla and butter. then you mix it together well and place on a cookie sheet in balls.
Bake under 10 minutes and they’re done.
These cookies are very dense with a lot of texture. They remind me very much of a thick and chewy homemade oatmeal raisin cookie, which is a good thing considering these are oatmeal raisin cookies.
My son really enjoyed them quite a bit, asking for them for a three days. If you aren’t going to eat them all in a short period of time you can store baked cookies in the freezer. We, of course, didn’t have that problem.
Among Friends Baking mixes can be purchased for $5.99 per bag through the online store and select retail outlets in the Midwest.
