Lucy’s Cookies: Dairy-, Egg-, Nut- and Gluten-Free


Updated! Lucy’s Cookies was taken over by Westminster Crackers in 2017 and brought back to shelves under new management and production.

Lucy's Cookies - Crispy, Crunchy, Buttery Treats in SO Many Flavors (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free)

Cookies are my favorite dessert – thick, soft, chewy cookies to be exact. I actually shunned crunchy biscuits of any kind, until I met Lucy’s Cookies.

Personally, I think it’s pretty darn impressive and convenient that I was won over to the crispy side by cookies that happen to be vegan, gluten-free AND nut-free (and made in an allergen-safe bakery). It’s true – I like Lucy’s Cookies far better than their butter-laden, wheaty, distant cousins (so does Tony!), and I LOVE how many flavors they have. Variety is the spice of life, no?

Tasting Notes for Lucy’s Cookies

Regardless of the flavor variety, all Lucy’s Cookies have a few taste traits in common: surprisingly buttery undertones, a slight oat-y vibe from the flour base, sweet but not overly-sugary, and relatively light yet crispy. They are also semi-petite in size, allowing you to enjoy three cookies per serving. As for the individual flavors, here was my take:

Chocolate Chip

Though you can’t compare these crispy little gems to the infamous big softies, they have their own special charm that I adored. And though the cookies are somewhat modest in size, they pack in regular (not mini) dairy-free chocolate chips!

Chocolate Chocolate Chunk

Thick but light and crunchy semi-sweet chocolate cookies with surprise bursts of delicious, deep dark chocolate throughout.

Cinnamon Thins

These Lucy’s Cookies were filled with spiced snickerdoodle-ish taste that reminded me a bit of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Ginger Snap

Super crisp, gently buttery and with an addictive ginger warmth that sneaks up on you.

Lemon Goodness

These Lucy’s Cookies have a subtle lemon zestiness with little candied ginger bursts throughout. I actually had some fun experimenting with these in recipes, too. I made these awesome (if I do say so myself) No Bake Lemon Cookie Granola Bars and used the leftover Lively Lemon Icing to make the sandwich cookies pictured below – so good!

Maple Bliss

The earthy maple notes made this one of my favorite flavors, but I believe they are only available in the Snack Packs (see below) at this time.


I was expecting more of an “oaty” texture, but these were crispy cookies with just a slight variation in texture, perhaps from partially ground oats. As an oat fan, I was still in heaven.


These Lucy’s Cookies made me crave a big mug of tea. Each bite was like a sweet, buttery biscuit dusted with delightful sugar crystals.

Chocolate Merry Mint (Seasonal)

The cocoa, mint, and vanilla get equal flavor time in these tasty yet subdued chocolate cookies.

Holiday Sugars (Seasonal)

Expect the classic Sugar Lucy’s Cookies but with festively-colored course sugar crystals for the season.

Pumpkin Patch (Seasonal)

Mellow and warm with somewhat bold hints of spice. Since it is a crispy cookie, the pumpkin isn’t as ever-present, but rather provides a subdued backdrop.

Snack ‘n Go Packs: For lunch boxes, portion-control, whatever your single-serve need, Lucy’s also offers boxes of Snack ‘n Go Packs in Chocolate Chip or a variety pack with Maple Bliss, Chocolate Chip and Chocolate. We trialed the variety pack which contains 6 bags of Lucy’s Cookies, 2 of each flavor, with 3 cookies per bag. Fortunately, I had already sampled all of the flavors (see reviews above!) because my husband devoured every last snack pack. Not all at once, but darn close. I love the idea of these for travel and lunches, and because I’m addicted to variety packs of anything tasty.

  1. Please does anyone know where to purchase Lucy’s. Chocolate Merry Mint Cookies?? I have found all other flavors but not these. Why would such a delicious popular GLuten free flavor be discontinued. These were the best ever!!

  2. If you have a very high peanut allergy these cookie may not be safe, They have chick pea and fava which are both in the peanut family. My son who has a peanut allergy had a mild reaction to these cookies. Please always read the small print!

  3. I love your cinnamon thin cookies, and have been buying them for quite some time, however I have noticed since the packaging has changed from box to bag, the cookies are always broken…..the last three bags I have bought, there may be one or two whole cookies the rest are crumbles…..sad in FL…? Please consider changing the packaging back….pretty please!

    • Hi Lisa, this is a third party review. I’m not affiliated with Lucy’s at all, so I can’t help you out. And unfortunately, their website has been down for “maintenance” for quite some time now, so I don’t know where to redirect you! Hopefully they’ll be back online in the very near future. I know that the company was recently taken over, so that might be why the change up in packaging.

    can i buy Lucy’s gluten free sugar cookies and Lucy’s maple bliss cookies…. if so how many do you have of each and at what price

  5. The snack packs are great for my son who has food allergies. He is able to take them to school to celebrate classmates’ birthdays and to restaurants where he might otherwise miss out on a dessert.

  7. Their cookies are not soy-free! Actually, the company doesn’t even list all the ingredients that are present in their product. They don’t disclose the ingredients of their chocolate chips or their soy milk–when I got that information from them, one of the undeclared ingredients is one of my allergens (carrageenan)! Good thing I checked!! I contacted them to complain, to let them know they were putting people in danger, but they didn’t seem to care as their ingredient statement is the same as before. I am not sure how they get away with it, honestly, unless they don’t have to follow those guidelines . . . .

    • Thanks Bethany! Yes, you are correct, they aren’t soy-free. I couldn’t find a mention in my review where I said they were soy-free, but please let me know if I’ve missed something!

      That is such a bummer that they don’t fit with your allergen needs. Hopefully they will list all ingredients for issues like this in the future.

  8. I am a chewy cookie girl too and found Dr. Lucky’s a little too crispy…until I discovered that they are magical when crumbled over soy ice cream, on top of cupcakes or on Sunbutter smeared on apples!

    I keep a supply on hand now in my pantry! Thank you for sharing with us.
