Though we have trialed Cappello’s Gluten Free Cookie Dough, I’ve opted not to give it a star rating since it’s really out of our household realm in terms of price. I think it is a quality artisan product though. So I have included lots of notes to help you decide if it is worth the splurge!
Cappello’s Gluten Free Cookie Dough is a joint effort with the team behind Primal Palate. It’s darn close to paleo (there is a little evaporated cane juice in the chocolate chips). It’s also made with wholesome all-natural, non-GMO ingredients: almond flour, dairy-free chocolate morsels (soy-free), organic maple syrup, arrowroot flour, organic coconut oil, organic sea salt, organic vanilla, and baking soda.
Tasting Notes for Cappello’s Gluten-Free Cookie Dough
The dough is a little crumbly when cut due to the sheer volume of chocolate chips (not a bad thing!). But they are easy to reshape. Aside from that, they’re as easy to make as any other cookie. They emerge with a nice, chewy consistency. Much like my favorite chocolate chip cookies (picture below is from my kitchen). That said, when we eat cookies, it’s because we’re craving dessert.
For us, Cappello’s Gluten Free Cookie Dough produced cookies that simply weren’t very sweet. In fact, it seemed the salt and sweetener were getting equal face time. The flavor was more like an almond flour biscuit. If your taste buds have become heightened to sugar, than I think these may hit the mark. But if you are like us, and still indulge in sweet desserts on occasion, I’d think of these like a healthy, very lightly sweet breakfast cookie.

I did not know what to expect but I thought these were fabulous! I was satisfied after JUST ONE COOKIE. Perhaps due to the protein content of almond flour? There was crunch, sweetness, saltiness and semi-sweet chocolate in every bite. These will always be in my freezer for a quick snack or to serve guests. Also, baking them filled my apartment with the classically awesome scent of baking cookies.
Yum, dense and delicious
So nutrient dense, they tasted delicious and had enough protein to be like a meal:)
Just awful...house of 4 and no one liked them at all. Very disappointed.
They just are not good enough. They are not “tasty” if that make sense. It is like eating some dry, crumbly dough with very bitter chips in it. Ugh no thank you! Life is WAY too short to eat these!
I so appreciate your honest reviews, Alisa! That price is outside of my desired price range as well. The results look good, but I do like a sweeter cookie, even if it’s delivered via dates or something else healthier. I get the appeal for many, but, really it’s so easy to make a batch of cookies on one’s own.
Thank you Shirley!
I agree with your review – I was definitely underwhelmed by the Cappello’s cookies/cookie dough. Haven’t tried the pasta yet though; but based on your past review of those products, I definitely hope I can locate the pastas soon.
Thanks for your feedback, too, Liz. Yes, I liked the pastas, but they are insanely filling 🙂
