Summary:

Gluten and dairy are not missed in these cookies with a range of flavors and textures. The Chocolate Chip are kid- and husband-friendly with a good smattering of chocolate chips and shortbread-like bite. The Ginger are potent, just a touch softer and chewier and perfect with tea or milk beverage.

Ener-G Cookies were one of the original gluten-free, dairy-free treats on the market. Though others have emerged, some with more classic tastes, these unique goodies have persisted.

Ener-G Cookies Review - gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and generally food allergy friendly (select flavors are vegan)
The first Ener-G Cookies I sample were the Chocolate Chip Potato, which were surprisingly delicious. Even though he’s gluten-free, I still consider Tony our toughest cookie reviewer. Or at least, he’s difficult to dazzle. He gave them a “pretty good” with a solid 4 star rating. They reminded him of a more indulgent cookie, but he couldn’t pinpoint it. By the end of the day, he’d consumed the whole bag!

Thankfully, he left one, just one, for me to sample. I loved the little bites of chocolate in the slightly sweet shortbread-like cookie base. I found these Ener-G Cookies to be flavorful, a touch indulgent (but not over the top), and great with tea or coffee. We definitely didn’t miss the wheat flour or butter in these gems.

We also trialed the Ginger Ener-G Cookies, which are definitely for spice fans. They have a pleasant melt-in-your-mouth texture, and are slightly chewy yet very soft. Our five ginger loving taste testers (all women coincidentally) loved the extra bold and spicy kick. We were sure they must be spiked with some fresh ginger. Each bite has just enough sugar to offset the spice, making them an excellent accompaniment to afternoon tea. Our non-ginger fans steered clear from these samples, which I think was wise. They are potent.
