When I made my weekly trip to Trader Joe’s last week, one of the store employees asked me if I had tried the new gluten-free Snickerdoodles. I had not tried them yet, so I was excited that the employee reminded me that they now sold them. I love their gluten-free Gingersnaps and use them for a pie crust or cookie crumb crust in desserts.
Upon first glance the box & cookies remind me of the cookies made by Enjoy Life. The ingredients are very similar, too. The cookies have 130 calories, 4.5 g fat, 2g fiber and 1g protein per serving (2 cookies). In addition to not containing any gluten, the cookies are also vegan and free of the 8 common allergens. There are 6 servings or 12 cookies in a box for under $3.00. I love the simple, understandable ingredient list:
sorghum flour, date paste, grape, apple and pear juice concentrates, brown pure cane sugar, expeller-pressed vegetable oil (safflower and/or sunflower oil), natural rice dextrin, ground flaxseed, water, xanthan gum, baking soda, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, rosemary extract.
The cookies are extremely moist and have the perfect balance of sugar & cinnamon flavor. Jon said that he thinks they are better – a bit more moist – than the Enjoy Life version. I enjoyed them with a nice cup of hot tea on a chilly, fall afternoon.
Trader Joe’s has a nice variety of gluten-free products under their name. Some of those items are:
