Summary:

The crispy minis are flavorful little two-bites with a delightful crunch that is surprisingly gluten-free. A great lunch box option for nut, egg, and dairy allergies, too.

“These are gluten-free?” My niece sounded surprised as she inquired from the back seat on a recent road trip. “Yes, they are even made with whole grains,” I replied. “Hmm, they’re really good.”

Not all cookies meet with her approval, but the crispy minis line of HomeFree Cookies passed both her test and mine. These bite-sized little gems are sweet, but not too sweet, and bursting with flavor. When taste-tested three varieties. The Vanilla is true to its warm, rich namesake while the Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate Chip are generously dotted with tasty dairy-free chocolate. The minis are sold in boxes and in single-serve, lunchbox-friendly packages (about 6 to 7 cookies in each).

For food allergy concerns, HomeFree Cookies are made in a dedicated bakery and are free of the top 8 allergens.

But don’t confuse the minis with the full-size line of HomeFree Cookies. The larger versions are tender to the bite, rather than crispy, and are sold as singles or in boxes. They are also made in HomeFree’s dedicated facility, but unfortunately are sold in far less flavors.

  1. Just want to second the love for Home-Free cookies. We adore the vanilla mini’s (mini anything is so appealing). They’re crispy outside and surprisingly, they melt away in your mouth. They are truly delicious; you’d never think these mini’s were free of gluten, eggs and dairy. This also makes them a perfect snack for friend’s get-togethers (non-allergic, too!)
