Product review: Newton’s no gluten sugar cookie mix

When the holiday season rolls around, it’s nice to be able to enjoy some festive treats now and again.

This can be tricky, though, if you had food intolerances.

Good news, though; Newton’s no gluten sugar cookie mix has your back for all allergen-free baking this Christmas season.

For all seasons, really. Not just Christmas.

I first came across this cookie mix in the summertime and decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint, and when I saw it in Sobey’s with my mom a couple of nights ago, I thought I would pick up another package to make and enjoy.

One of the things I like the most about this mix is how versatile it can be. For example, the dry mix that comes in the bag asks for coconut milk to be used as a wet ingredient, however, I used cashew milk and they turned out great.

The mix also calls for shortening, but I used avocado oil as a replacement, and they still turned out fine.

These cookies are so simple to make, and they’re freaking delicious. For this batch, I tried mixing sprinkles in with the raw dough, and I’ll definitely be doing it again.

(they’re also fantastic dipped in raspberry jam)

You can rest assured that this stuff is legit – take a look at their website description:

“We take the term gluten-free very seriously. So seriously that we have a dedicated gluten-free kitchen!  In fact, our entire facility is gluten-free! We have NEVER processed wheat flour or any ingredient containing wheat in our current facility since opening in our new location in 2010. In addition to being produced in a facility dedicated gluten-free, peanut-free and tree-nut free, a selection of our baking is also dairy-free, egg-free and soy-free.”

And, if you take a closer look at the featured image for this post, you can see that Newton’s offers a variety of baking mixes and several pre-made treats.
