My Dad’s Cookies: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Nut-Free Nostalgic Treats


Far from the mega-booths and squashed at the end of an aisle sat baker Elan and his array of freshly baked dairy-, gluten-, and nut-free cookies. It was a good thing I had put My Dad’s Cookies on my agenda at Expo West earlier this year! Otherwise I might have missed their modest display and tasting some pretty amazing cookies.

My Dad's Cookies - Black and White Cookies (gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free)

I had never been a big fan of “traditional” cookies. I grew up on chewy and gooey, and even straight-up cookie dough. Always turning up my nose at delicate treats like biscotti and raspberry linzers. Perhaps my taste buds have matured, or maybe I just hadn’t sampled ones that were as good as My Dad’s Cookies.

Tasting Notes for My Dad’s Cookies

At the show we tried the Black & White Tuxedo cookie. It was tender, sweet, and so, so delicious. Elan was nice enough to send us home with a box of the Chocolate Chip, and those didn’t disappoint either.

Chocolate Chip

The Chocolate Chip My Dad’s Cookies were crispy and sweet, with the perfect amount of little chocolate chips and vanilla essence. The kid in our house loved them and had no clue they were gluten-free. Tony and I thought they were amazing with afternoon tea. In fact, it didn’t take but a day for the box of My Dad’s Cookies pictured above, to look like this…
