These delicate cookies are dairy free and made with 70 percent organic ingredients, including European dark chocolate, brown sugar, peanut butter and non-genetically modified soy emulsifier. They’re available in boxes of nine and in single-serving two-packs.
One of the first gluten-free options for fig lovers, these organic, certified gluten–free cookies are soft in the center and slightly crunchy on the outside. Jovial also makes two other gluten-free cookie flavors: Chocolate Chocolate Cream Filled and Chocolate Vanilla Cream Filled.
Natural peppermint oil creates a cookie that customers call “light and refreshing,” according to the company. Although the cookies are gluten free, they’re made in a facility that produces foods containing wheat, so they may not be safe for customers with serious gluten allergies.
These crisp treats are inspired by the classic snickerdoodle. Lucy Gibney, MD, created the line of cookies, which includes Sugar, Cinnamon, Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip flavors, for her son who has food allergies. All cookies are made without milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.
