Allergy-Friendly #GlutenFree Easter Treats from Lucy's Cookies

Saturday, April 07, 2012 Posted by Dina N

Easter is tomorrow, and many of us have been busy decorating eggs, taking the kids on egg hunts, and making sure the Easter bunny remembers to drop by this year. For more than 15 million Americans with food sensitivities, most of the sweet treats we enjoy around Easter are off-limits. Luckily, the delicious Lucy's Cookies make a safe addition to any Easter basket.

Lucy's Cookies are irresistible treats that are gluten-free. Those with food allergies will be happy to hear that these cookies contain no peanuts, tree nuts, milk, or eggs. They were created by an M.D., the mom of a child with severe allergies. She came up with cookies produced in a carefully controlled bakery and tested for trace amounts of milk, eggs, gluten, peanuts and almonds. Lucy's Cookies are made with all-natural ingredients. They are vegan, non-GMO, and have zero trans fats and cholesterol. Watching your waistline? Three of Lucy's Cookies have only 120 calories.

Lucy's Cookies come in seven different flavors. The three newest flavors are Maple Bliss, Chocolate, and Ginger Snap. We tried them a couple of months ago, and found them very tasty, with a satisfying crunch, just perfect for dunking in a glass of milk or coffee. My kids still ask for the Maple Bliss cookies. The Ginger Snap cookies have a little bit of a spicy taste that makes them a grown-up favorite at my house. Finally, who can resist a chocolate cookie?? Not me.

Just in time for Easter, we tried the other four flavors of Lucy's Cookies: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, Cinnamon Thin, and Oatmeal. I expected deliciousness, and they did not disappoint. Since I love cinnamon, I enjoyed the Cinnamon Thins the most, followed closely by the sugar cookies. My daughter who always wants to take the raisins out of the oatmeal raisin cookies I bake at home, announced that the oatmeal cookies are her new Lucy's bestest. All varieties are tasty, not overly sweet, and make for a wonderful allergy-friendly treat. The Chocolate Chip are made with organic cane sugar and dark chocolate chips - my favorite! In addition, the boxes of the four flavors are pastels / neons, such happy Spring colors.

No matter what's your favorite cookie, at Lucy's Cookies you can find something for everyone’s Easter basket, whether they have a dietary restriction or not.

    Great options for those who are gluten free! The flavors sound yummy. I'm glad that more people are providing options for gluten free because it can be disappointing to a child when all their friends are eating cookies but he can't cause he can't have gluten.

    Those are the cutest little boxes! I don't remember many kids with allergies in school when I was growing up but now it seems like there's an increase in society. It must be the toxins in the air, I don't know. Glad to have products like these on the market!

    Thanks for the review. I will have to tell my friend about these cookies. She is on a gluten - free diet.

    These sound great! They would be good for sending to school when there are allergy restrictions in the classroom. I would especially like to try the Maple Bliss, Cinnamon Thin, and Oatmeal flavors myself!
