Gluten-Free Cookies that Your Family will Gobble Up

The perfect cookie that is also an excellent source of protein with no guilt!

I have a HUGE sweet-tooth! Bring me all the cookies – I don’t discriminate on flavor. The problem is that my waist-line does not love cookies nor does my skin as I tend to have negative reactions to high gluten intake; I try to live Gluten-Free.

I tend to stay away from gluten-free desert options as they tend to be bland and have a weird texture. However, now that my daughter is showing signs of inheriting my Keratosis Pilaris, I have tried to incorporate more gluten-free options for snacks.

My daughter also loves sweets. She really enjoys any time that we get to spend together in the kitchen and I love that it pulls her away from electronics, even if just for a moment.

Meli’s Cookies pack tons of flavor into Gluten-Free and High Protein cookie mixes!

Can I tell you how much we LOVE their Original Monster Mix?! Can I had the actual number of cookies that I ate off the cookie sheet before they even had a chance to cool? It was an embarrassingly large number.

Meli’s Cookies are super easy to make, are pre-packaged for ease, and require very few ingredients. All dry mixes feature high quality ingredients and include gluten-free rolled oats.

You will need: a box of Meli’s Cookie dry mix, 1/2 cup of your favorite nut butter, 1 egg, and 4 tablespoons of softened butter.

All ingredients will be added to a large mixing bowl and stirred until combined. Scoop onto a 2 inch ball and add to a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.

Then try not to burn yourself as you pry them from the pan before they are cool enough to eat.

Meli’s Cookies also feature Choco-Lot and Cashewlicious flavors which are both equally delicious. I can attest as these cookies did not last past the first day in my house.

Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. I love it so much, that I don’t limit eating it to the early morning hours, either. Breakfast foods are delicious no matter what time of day or night it is, even the wee hours of the morning are prime breakfast eating, in my opinion.

However, some people have to be a little more careful than others about what they eat. Increasingly, I’m seeing more and more in the media about those who suffer from gluten sensitivities that cause health issues aggravated by certain food products. My sister-in-law lives with this condition and has to be careful about what she eats. Fortunately, I’ve noticed a marked increase in the gluten-free food products available at the grocery store (even in our relatively small town). The newest line of gluten-free food I’m currently trying in our home are Start Right™ Foods Belgian Waffles and Waffle Slider Breakfast Sandwiches. (Spoiler alert: This brand is going on my “good” list!) [read more]

The reasons vary from dietary restrictions, food intolerance, personal preference and more. People are more aware of what is in their food and how it is prepared. Some are trying to teach a farm to table lifestyle to their children or grandchildren. But one of the wants and needs of people is to be gluten-free while at the same time not sacrificing taste. And you can have that at Jewel’s Bakery & Café. They just created a new menu showcasing some delicious eats so head on over to 40th Street and Thomas road to try them out.
