Homefree Cookies are Mini Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Treats

3

“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.

Flavorful little two-bites

February 12, 2020

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.

  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!)
