Allergen-Free Cookies

Finally an allergy-free treat that doesn’t taste like the dirt its all-natural, organic ingredients are grown in.

After trying HomeFree cookies for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised with their sweet flavor and the fact that my afternoon sugar rush was actually satisfied.

This New Hampshire-based bakery is dedicated to creating tasty treats that are free of common food allergens such as peanuts, eggs, dairy and tree nuts. But what makes HomeFree unique is that they have managed to build a delicious cookie without the staple ingredients like eggs and butter. Instead, they use soy, whole grains, organic cane sugar and even special ingredients like pear juice concentrate and rosemary extract. I even asked a 15, 12, and 9-year-old to try them and they all gave their approval.

HomeFree also makes a variety of cakes and has a cookbook on allergen-free baking. You can purchase them at their website or at one of the 300 retail locations that sell them nationwide, including select Whole Foods and a growing number of institutions such as schools, camps, and sporting venues.

Based on taste alone, I would recommend these cookies as an everyday treat, but beyond the sugary sweet goodness, they are also a great substitute for those with food allergies.
