What's So Special About Our Cookies?
Before we go and tell you what’s NOT in our cookies, you should know that what’s special about our products is that they are really, really good. We bake with amazing, wholesome ingredients in small batches, using care at every step. Real people make our cookies, often having a great time while doing it. It just so happens that our cookies can be enjoyed by people all across the spectrum of food allergies and sensitivities, and lifestyle choices.
100% ORGANIC SPELT FLOUR
We bake with organic spelt flour because it makes for a really delicious cookie. A lot of people think spelt is “wheat-free” but it’s not, wheat and spelt are in the same family. Spelt is an ancient grain that is wheat’s great-great grandfather. It has a low glycemic index, and is found to be much easier to digest by people with wheat sensitivities.
GLUTEN FREE COOKIES
Our gluten free cookies are made with our own custom flour blends, with a main base of organic brown rice flour. We take special measures to ensure there is no cross-contamination of wheat in our gluten free cookies. These steps include:
- Keeping all gluten free ingredients in a separate area of the bakery.
- Dedicating baking tools and utensils solely to gluten free products.
- Using separate trays for all gluten free products, and keeping these trays covered by a rack cover when not in use.
- Dedicating a specific time for gluten free baking, when the bakery is 100% sanitized, and no wheat ingredients or products are present.
- Testing to ensure there are no traces of wheat in our gluten free products.
DAIRY & EGG FREE
All of our products are free of dairy and eggs so they can be enjoyed by people who are lactose intolerant or allergic to eggs, or who choose a vegan lifestyle. This also makes our cookies cholesterol free. Score! Yummy cookies don’t need butter and eggs, and they also don’t need “substitutes” that will add processed ingredients and preservatives to them. Simple is best, and we keep it that way.
PEANUT & NUT FREE
Our facility is devoted to being 100% nut and peanut free. We guarantee that none of our products have come into contact with nut products of any kind.
Our aim is to make our cookies as close to homemade as it gets, and you don’t see preservatives in your homemade cookie recipes, do you? Quality and health are more important to us than having something sit on a shelf.
Our products are completely free of animal products so they can be enjoyed by people who choose a vegan diet or lifestyle.
We use only pure sunflower oil in our products for a clean taste, and a healthier cookie.
Our cookies are certified Kosher Pareve by the Kosher Supervision of America.
OTHER INFO PEOPLE OFTEN WONDER ABOUT:
Sugar: We use organic raw cane sugar in our cookies – except the granola is sweetened with Maple syrup.
Soy: We do not use soy in our products, but there is a trace amount of soy lecithin inside the chocolate chips we use. Our Goldies, Ginger Snappers, and Bite Me! Cookies are all soy-free as they do not contain the chocolate chips.
