I like to mix up the gluten free cookies that I purchase so I don’t get bored. As such, I’ve sampled pretty much every GF/DF cookie available in and around New Jersey. I’ve put together this list with my thoughts on each brand and in many cases individual cookie varieties.
Please note, I’ve provided allergen information and manufacturing processes where I have them. Just because something isn’t listed doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Also, recipes change so as always be sure to read the packaging and company website for latest information.
The views below are my opinions. I am not a fan of quinoa flour, garbanzo bean flour, or soy flour and state as such. However, I’ve spoken to people who like all three of these so to each their own.
As always I recommend you support your local gluten free retailer/supermarket. If however, you can’t find a product I’ve included links where possible to online retailers for your convenience.

Andean Dream – Individually wrapped small quinoa flour cookies. Interesting flavors – Orange Essence, Chocolate Chip, Cocoa-Orange, Raisins & Spice and Coconut. Quinoa has a distinct flavor that I’m not a big fan of. I do like that the individual cookies are wrapped which makes them easy to take along.
Aunt Gussie’s – makes their gluten free cookies both with and without sugar. I have only ever seen/tried the sugar free versions. I didn’t like them since I can have sugar, but if one needs both they could work.

Go Raw – Go Raw has a line of ‘super’ cookies that are made primarily of coconut, sprouted sesame seeds and dates. They are completely vegan (although neither labeled nor marketed as such), gluten free, and organic. I’ve only tried the Chocolate but was surprised at how really good they are! They also make: lemon, masala chai, carrot cake, ginger snaps, spirulina, pumpkin and original.
