In case you can’t tell by this new product update, I’ve got a craving for dairy-free cookies! Fortunately, there are plenty of new delights to choose from. The batches below include sweet lunch box bites, sugary indulgences, and “healthy” paleo-ish treats. Most are also vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free (see my notes).
Enjoy, and do let us know in the comments if you have tried any of these products, and what you thought! If you have a new dairy-free product coming out, feel free to alert us via email.
Please keep in mind that these are product finds, but not full blown recommendations. We have not sampled all of these products ourselves (actually, you could call this my wish list as I haven’t tried any of them!). For more extensive listings, tasting opinions and recommendations, see our Dairy-Free Product Reviews.
These cute little biscotti-shaped raw vegan cookies are of course gluten-free and dairy-free, but they also boast wholesome, grain-free ingredients (with California almonds as the flour base – no starches) that are dehydrated, rather than baked. Current varieties include: Cranberry & Cacao Nibs, Lemon & Coconut, Sesame Lime Ginger, Apricot & Coconut (pictured below), and Coconut & Cacao Nibs. For more info: www.rawdecadence.com
Lucy’s Allergy-Friendly Cookies: New Flavors
Calling all Lucy’s fans! Every season seems to bring a new option or two to their expansive crunchy cookie line-up and this fall will be no exception. Expect to see Pumpkin Patch and Maple Crunch hit store shelves in the near future. All Lucy’s cookies are vegan, gluten-free, and peanut- / tree nut-free (made in a dedicated bakery).

Om Nom Nom Vegan Cookies
This isn’t a brand new company, but Om Nom Nom just recently came onto my radar, and I was betting that many of you hadn’t seen them as of yet. They focus on simple, classic ingredients (flour, sugars, chocolate chips, etc.) for what I’m guessing is time-tested perfection. Current flavors spotted include: Orange Zested Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Snickerdoodle, Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodle, Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal, and Ultimate Peanut Butter. All varieties are of course dairy-free and egg-free (they appear to be soy-free), but they do use wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts. For more info: www.omnomnomcookies.com
More of a cookie-bar hybrid, these heart-shaped treats have a base of gluten-free oats and almonds, and are sweetened with dates and coconut sugar. They use raw, whole food, vegan, organic ingredients and currently can be bought in Mint Chocolate Chip, Banana Nut Bread, and Lemon Poppy Seed flavors. For more info: www.rawxies.com
Udi’s Gluten-Free Soft-Baked Cookies
Proceed with caution if severe food allergies are your concern. Udi’s new soft-baked cookies are certified gluten-free, but they contain eggs and nuts, and milk, peanuts, and soy are present in the facility. If potential traces from cross-contamination aren’t a concern for you, then you will delight in knowing that all three flavors (Peanut Butter Coconut, Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip, and Salted Caramel Cashew) are dairy-free by ingredients.

And, to perfect the cookie experience, there is something else new on the horizon. Just a sneak peak of this new non-dairy milk alternative for dunking, as I hope to be reviewing it in full very soon…
