Win-It-Wednesday: Lucy’s Gluten, Nut, Milk & Egg Free Cookies

lemon lucysThis week’s WIN-It-Wednesday on is one of my favorite gluten-free cookie companies that is founded by one smart cookie herself, Dr. Lucy Gibney.

Lucy’s is founded by a doctor that got down to some serious medical research – in the kitchen – because her child had severe food allergies.  What began as a mother’s tasty recipe for her child has developed into a delicious alternative for people with (or even without!) special dietary considerations. Not only are Lucy’s Cookies gluten-free, they are also free of peanuts, tree nuts, milk and eggs. They are also vegan.

And even though Lucy’s Cookies are free of gluten and other common allergens, they aren’t missing out on flavor and tastiness. They are full of crunchy, airy cookie goodness, that makes them perfect for old-school milk dipping or classic ice cream sandwiches.

My most recent craveable dessert is sandwiching one of my favorite ice cream flavors, Black Raspberry, between two of Lucy’s Ginger Snap cookies. The spiciness of the cookies and the berry-creaminess of the ice cream is a match made in gluten-free heaven.

And with only 120 calorie for three (YES 3!) cookies, 0 mg cholesterol, and 0 g tans fat – my most recent favorite dessert is even sweeter!

The flavors of Lucy’s cookies goes beyond the ordinary too. As well as toting a bake sheet of traditional favorites, Lucy’s also offers some tantalizing flavors for the adult palate. Some include Ginger Snap, Maple Bliss, and Chocolate – as well as Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Thin and Sugar.

    there are so many awesome gluten free recipes, that you can always have your favorite snacks. If cooking isn’t your thing, there is alot out now that you can buy right off the shelf

  2. Kim ledford Says:

    I keep a separate gluten free recipe tab on my emails and store all the yummy gluten free recipes that I found on the internet

  3. Susan Blommer Says:

    To be a smart cookie for being allergen free and / or gluten free is to ALWAYS check ingredients list on packages. Manufactures do and can change their ingredients or recipes at any time.

  4. Sue Says:

    I use crushed cookies for the crust when I make gluten free mini cheesecakes in muffin pans.

  5. Jordan Says:

    One tip I have is shopping the clearance section at supermarkets or going to the stores like Ross, Biglots, etc and looking for GF items! The discount stores tend to have a lot of “unknown” brands of GF foods at very discounted prices!

  6. Dana Matthews Says:

    My tip is to follow blogs that specialize in discussing gluten free products. This is where I get a lot of product ideas! Following Lucy’s on Twitter and FB.

  7. Forress Says:

    Try to have all your ingredients at room temperature. This helps in mixing and in the final product I think.

  8. Robin Says:

    I always research online and look for samples. The gluten free expos are great for sampling new and exciting goodies!

  9. Susan M Says:

    My daughter likes the Find Me Gluten Free app for finding places to eat that have gluten free options.

  10. Neda Says:

    This winner is really lucky!! … I have Celiac and I make all my own stuff. In my idea put aside the rules & be creative! What I use a lot are spices; they give taste & can replace sugar. 🙂

  11. Jaclyn Horne Says:

    I call restaurants in advance to inquire about their gluten free options so i can spend more time at the restaurant enjoying the company of my friends and family than spending time trying to figure out what i can eat! 🙂

  12. TXEdie Says:

    Being a “smart cookie” I never buy anything without first reading the Ingredients List! Remember that ingredients like “malt” or “rye” may hide in harmless appearing foods. Cross contamination hints also frequently appear. i.e., “Made in a facility/on equipment that processes wheat.” A quick scan helps avoid that “How did I get glutened?” question.

  13. Cindy Wl Says:

    I find it helpful to follow GF blogs – you find out the latest news & research as well as recipes.

  14. Margoka Says:

    I make most of my food at home, so I know what I put in it. I have to avoid gluten and I hardly buy prepared food.

  15. Laura Says:

    Because gluten free sandwich bread is so expensive, try using gluten free tortillas instead in sandwiches to create roll-ups with meat and cheese or warmed as a side instead of toast with eggs at breakfast.

  16. Neda Says:

    Make your GF batter tasty with vinegar, pepper, cardamon, caraway or any other spice that u like! You can use sweet fruits/vegetables like watermelon, pineapple, grapes, turnip, beet or ….

  17. Susan M Says:

    My daughter is a college student and she went and spoke directly with the head of dining services about her concerns regarding gluten free options so that they were aware that there actually was a need to provide safe gluten free options. And they gave her a goody bag of packaged gluten free treats!

  18. Eileen Says:

    I love your smartphone idea. I save my favorite recipes into folder on the computer

  19. Christina Says:

    I always have a gluten free snack with me wherever i go to be sure I am not stuck without food if the available food isn’t safe for me to eat.

  20. Cindy Wl Says:

    In the beginning after being diagnosed with Celiac I found it overwhelming but in time it becomes second nature.

  21. Deb Gowlland Says:

    One thing I’ve learned being gluten free is to always have a back up plan…bring your own snacks/granola bars just in case!
