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

After tryingHomeFree cookies for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised with their sweetflavor and the fact that my afternoon sugar rush was actually satisfied.

This NewHampshire-based bakery is dedicated to creating tasty treats that are free ofcommon food allergens such as peanuts, eggs, dairy and tree nuts. But whatmakes 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 evenspecial 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 ofcakes and has a cookbook on allergen-free baking. You can purchase them attheir website or at one of the 300 retail locations that sell them nationwide,including select Whole Foods and a growing number of institutions such asschools, camps, and sporting venues.

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