Summary:

This generously chocolate studded cookie dough bakes up into delicious, thick, and chewy cookies. They're just sweet enough and taste like a classic chocolate chip cookie. These aren't just good for gluten-free cookies - they're actually really good cookies, period. They're undetectably gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan and were such a hit with all my friends!

Amanda’s Own Cookie Dough is unbelievably free of the top 8 allergens, including wheat / gluten, egg, dairy, tree nut, peanut, and soy.

Amanda’s Own has been well known and loved for their allergen-safe chocolate confections made in their dedicated facility. But now they’ve entered the realm of baking with this cookie dough.

Of course upon opening this hefty tub of cookie dough I had to sneak a few bites of glorious cookie dough (bonus of egg-free!). The first thing I noticed when peeling off the lid was how generous it was with chocolate chips. I mean – it’s fully loaded. I’m definitely not complaining though!

Tasting Notes for Amanda’s Own Cookie Dough

As is, it tastes just like classic cookie dough, but there was a strong hint of vanilla extract that hit me in the aftertaste. Not necessarily bad, but it did stop me from sneaking a few more cookie dough bites. Instead, like a good baker, I scooped the cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet using a tablespoon scoop as directed by the package. I gave them a quick press to flatten and popped them in the oven.Amanda's Own Cookie Dough Review - Vegan, Gluten-Free and Allergy-Friendly!

The aroma of freshly baked cookies wafted through the room. Just 12 minutes (okay more like 15 because I missed my timer…) later, I had a tray of golden brown cookies taunting me. The cookies achieved a nice color, but they didn’t spread as expected. They stayed as plump little cookies.

Excitedly, I noshed on one very soon after removing them from the oven for a true freshly baked experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find a crisp exterior with a tender, chewy center. The flavor was sweet and just like a chocolate chip cookie. They were nicely sweetened without being overly sweet. The chocolate chips didn’t overpower, but were just right, giving each bite some semisweet melty richness.

The gluten-free flour blend in Amanda’s Own Cookie Dough is made up of brown rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour. But thankfully, there wasn’t a speck of the gritty feel that often comes along with brown rice flour. I honestly couldn’t get over how undetectably gluten-free these cookies are! I brought them over to a friends’ house one evening and they disappeared so quickly. We were all fans. At first bite, my friend exclaimed “these are like really good!”.

Like many allergy-friendly products, Amanda’s Own cookie dough is a bit of a luxury product. It’s definitely a treat. But if you’re in need of some really tasty allergy-friendly cookies for a birthday or party, I think it’d be worth it!

  1. I feel like that would be very dangerous to have in my house! I love cookie dough and can see myself sitting in front of the fridge spoon in hand stuffing my face!!

  2. Thank you for sharing this review. This is very helpful. I didn’t know about this company. They look and sound awesome! I could use some cookie dough to just pop into the oven!
