When I was going on a gluten-free or “gluten-less” program, I needed to know why it was important to reduce the intake of gluten type foods. On a personal level, eating less foods made with gluten made me feel lighter and I wasn’t prone to being so tired most of the time. I can just imagine how it would affect those who are completely gluten intolerant as it can be a very uncomfortable feeling. So when I was offered to try ginnybakes (www.ginnybakes.com) and review on my blog, I was very curious to how their gluten-free baked goods would taste.
I was sent their entire line of baked goods which ranged from chocolate chip cookies to their gluten-free baking mixes. I was quite surprised that ginnybakes had such an extensive lineup of products made with high quality ingredients and entirely without any traditional wheat flour. As a big fan of baked sweets, their cookies were actually quite delicious. My son’s favorite was their Butter Crisp cookies which I have to admit I liked as well even for a major chocolate lover as me. The Butter Crisp Love cookies as they are called were rich in buttery flavor, had a delicate crunch to them, and small enough in size where you could indulge in a few pieces. They are made with organic brown rice flour as the main ingredient and if we hadn’t known they were gluten-free cookies, we would not have tasted the difference. Their Chocolate Chip Love cookies were full of yummy organic dark chocolate chips and also had a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth crunch and it really was a toss-up as to which flavor was the best. But we tried them all just to give them a fair representation.
Ginnybakes baked goods are all made with organic ingredients, are gluten-free, non-GMO, and kosher. They believe that high quality and great tasting food should come together as one. As a family owned and operated company, Ginny Simon, the owner and founder of ginnybakes, wanted to bring delicious and all-natural baked sweets to those who live on a gluten-free lifestyle of just want something different than the traditional cookies you’d find in supermarkets. Their complete line of gourmet baked sweets are carefully formulated and tested for taste and can be found at most natural grocery stores and major supermarkets.
As a Moms Meet Ambassador I was very happy to have received ginnybakes to try and review. It has been hard trying to find really great tasting gluten-free products that doesn’t compromise taste and integrity. Most of the other gluten-free products were either really bland or dry in texture. With ginnybakes, their cookies were moist and crunchy and their ginnybars were moist and not too sweet and full of nuts and seeds. I’m not accustomed to having a lot of nuts in my snack bars but in the ginnybars they were blended into tiny pieces so you don’t get a mouthful of nuts and seeds. I have yet to try their baking mixes but I’m pretty sure they will turn out just as unique as their ready made baked goods. Judging by the gorgeous packaging alone they conjure up delicate homemade cookies ready to be enjoyed with a tall glass of frosty milk or a hot cup of green tea. And indeed the photos of the products actually represent how they look inside.
So for those who are on a gluten-free lifestyle or want to try something different, give ginnybakes a try. There are a great assortment of organic baked goods including Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bliss, Chocolate Chip Love, Butter Crisp Love, Coconut Oatmeal Bliss, ginnybakes Crumbles, ginnybars, ginnybakes mixes, and a few other delicious varieties.
