This hole-in-the-wall cookie shop right near Union Square offers lots of gluten-friendly cookies, ice cream and coffees great for mid-afternoon pick-me-ups or after dinner treats. The entire bakeshop is NOT gluten-free, but the current gluten-free cookie flavors offered are peanut butter, double chocolate chunk and oatmeal raisin, and you can have one of delicious treats with hot chocolate or ice cream, too!…
Ben’s Cookies’ tagline is “chunks, not chips,” and the GF double chocolate chip cookies definitely live up to this – they are ooey-gooey perfection! When I brought a box of these cookies home, my gluten-eating roommate couldn’t stop nibbling, telling me they were some of the best cookies she’s ever had.
Ben’s Cookies calls their gluten-free cookies “gluten-friendly,” since they can’t guarantee that they are made in a completely GF environment. Those with severe celiac disease or wheat allergies may unfortunately have to avoid the cookies, but the cookies’ ingredients are 100% gluten-free. Bonus: you’ll pay the same price for these cookies as your gluten-eating friends will for theirs. Since gluten-free baked goods can be known for breaking the bank, it’s great to see that Ben’s Cookies is offering gluten-friendly options that are just as delicious as their gluten-full ones – and are the same price!
