Review: EatPastry Vegan Gluten-Free Cookie Dough

I don’t know where it was that I first heard about EatPastry Vegan Gluten-Free Cookie Dough, but I knew I had to find some in a hurry.  I found the store locator on their website and discovered that Whole Foods carried the product and made a note to pick some up the next time I was close by.  I absolutely love the idea of having this in the fridge to make cookies at a moments notice for myself, Jon or guests.

The cookie dough is not only gluten-free, but vegan, too!

INGREDIENTS: Gluten Free Flour Blend: (Garbanzo, Brown Rice), Natural oil blend (palm fruit, canola, and olive oils), filtered water, pure salt, contains less than 2% of natural flavor (no MSG, no alcohol, no gluten), sunflower lecithin, lactic acid (non-dairy, derived from sugar beets), and colored with annatto extract), Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Dark Chocolate (Organic Sugar, Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Soy Lecithin (an emulsifier), Organic Natural Vanilla), Organic Brown Sugar, Organic Apple Sauce, Pure Vanilla Extract, Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Sea Salt.

My Whole Foods store only had the Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip on the shelves (refrigerated section), but EatPastry also makes a Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle and Gluten-Free Sugar Momma cookie. While I enjoy both of the cookie varieties too, I was pleased as punch to find the chocolate chip.

The cookies couldn’t have been easier to make.  I preheated my oven, scooped the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment, gently flattened and baked.  The beauty of this dough is making only what you want to eat right then.  No extra cookies calling my name from the counter, begging to become my late night snack.

Look at how perfect these turned out!  I let the cookies cool for as long as I could stand it and then dug in.  Mmmm…nothing better on a chilly winter afternoon than warm cookies from the oven.  I was pleased with the flavor and texture of these cookies and can see buying them in the future to keep on hand.  If you have children on the gluten-free, vegan or GF/CF diet, these are great to have for those last minute parties so no one feels left out.

You know what the added bonus here is?  Since the cookies are vegan there are no raw eggs in the dough.  Do you see where I am going with this?  Permission to eat raw cookie dough safely.  Boom!

Have you tried any of the EatPastry products?  If so, which ones?

    I have to say, I was profoundly disappointed in this product. It has bean flours in it, and I don’t know if everybody has the same reaction – we call it “Bitter Bean Face” after the Keystone beer commercials – but I can’t get past that nasty, bitter flavor from the beans. I threw away a nearly-full container.
