Most cookies on store shelves are made with a chemical cocktail of ingredients including genetically engineered sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial preservatives and more.
These types of cookies may be difficult for people with Celiac Disease, IBS, and similar digestive issues to eat, especially with any sort of consistency.
Recently I had the opportunity to try a cookie brand designed for people with gluten intolerance issues.
The cookies are made by Mightylicious, a small independent company with a goal of creating gourmet cookies with no sacrifices in terms of taste and texture. These are my impressions.
Mightylicious Cookie Flavors
Mightylicious offers an incredible assortment of different flavors to try.
Among them are:
-Double Dutch Chocolate
-Brown Butter Chocolate Chip
I tried all seven flavors. My favorites, in order, are:
- Double Dutch
- Brown Butter Chocolate Chip
- Oatmeal Coconut
- Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Chip
- Oatmeal Raisin
Overall I thought the Double Dutch and the Brown Butter Chocolate Chip cookies were the best by far. Each tasted like a gourmet cookie you’d get at a mall kiosk or bakery with a much more complex, artisan texture and delicious flavor that big name store brand cookies.
The Double Dutch I ate very quickly while the Brown Butter challenged it for the number one spot but ultimately fell short.
I really enjoyed all of these flavors and appreciate the small batch, hand-crafted nature of them in comparison with store bought cookies like Chips Ahoy!
