My very first post on the blog was a review about Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I haven’t seen it in the stores I usually shop at but I would definitely buy it again if I saw it. While it was not the same flavor or type of mix, I was pleasantly surprised when I happened upon this Immaculate Baking Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookie Mix at BB’s in Morgantown, PA. BB’s is a discount grocery store and I got this box for $1 (and no it wasn’t expired – haha)! For my local readers, this store is great if you’re looking for gluten free items. They have different things every time I go, but I have found various mixes, granola bars, cereal bars, oatmeal, cereal, pasta…all gluten free and deeply discounted. Sometimes the corner of a box will be smashed but who cares if it saves me $2-3/box?! Gluten free eating isn’t exactly inexpensive. I look forward to going because I never know what I will find and I usually come home with something new to try, like these cookies.
I decided to make them for a friend’s Oktoberfest party because she is gluten free as well and I wanted to bring a treat that we could both enjoy. All I added to the mix was 1/3 cup of organic canola oil and two eggs. I baked each tray for 13 minutes and I had 20 amazing cookies to deliver to the party. I sprinkled half of them with gluten free nonpareil sprinkles to add some festive color. Everyone, including people who do not eat gluten free, LOVED them. Sometimes gluten free cookies can be overly dry/crunchy and very crumbly. These were crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle with delicious chocolate taste. Perfection! I highly recommend!
Bonus points for:
- No bleached flour
- No hydrogenated oils
- No preservatives
- No artificial flavors
In addition, here’s two cool things I learned about Immaculate Baking:
- They like to give back to the arts, which is something I can get behind! They provide galleries on all of their products to give exposure to folk artists. You can see “Queen of the Jungle” by Andy Saczynski on this particular box.
- In 2003, they set the Guinness World Record for baking the world’s largest cookie which was 102 feet in diameter! Could you imagine?!
