WOW Baking Company :: Delectable Gluten-Free Cookies + Cake Mixes

 I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

Let me start out my review by letting you know I've had these cookies for a while now, staring at me in the face. You see, I received this wonderful package of goodies from WOW Baking Company right when I found out I was pregnant - uhhhh, which is exactly when I started getting super sick with morning sickness. Until recently, just looking at these packages caused great food aversions for me, sadly....even though I already knew they would all be delicious since I sampled a flavor prior to being pregnant. Ah hormones, aren't they great?

So, on to finally sampling! First off, let me say that I'm a soft cookie person in general, so these are right up my alley. These two-bite morsels from WOW Baking Co are just what I've been looking for in a pre-packaged gluten-free cookie. Typically all I find in the gluten-free arena are hard cookies with less than desirable flavor and texture.

WOW Baking cookies are made with natural ingredients, are Certified Gluten-Free, and also GMO-Free. I gotta say that their short ingredients list - ones that you can actually pronounce and have in your own kitchen - is why I gravitated to this brand in the first place. No junk.

As I mentioned, WOW Baking cookies are soft, but also moist, a little chewy and definitely delicious. They have a desirable homestyle taste that is completely satisfactory for this preggo's sweet tooth. I'm sooooo glad I can actually enjoy cookies again! Snickerdoodles are a classic favorite from my childhood, and few have ever come close to my mom's recipe. I'm quite impressed with these, and glad I won't be needing to experiment with her recipe to make my own gluten-free version. I'll just buy these.

WOW Baking Co didn't just stop at a couple cookie varieties. Just look at all these delectable gluten-free flavors that I can actually eat. Holy moly! Their bagged cookies retail for just $4.99.

Throughout my gluten-free journey I've had a difficult time finding a cake mix that is even acceptable. Most have a funky texture, strange flavor or a few ingredients I regret even sacrificing my money for. That's why I was pleasantly surprised by WOW Baking Co's cake mixes. I only wish the chocolate cake mix had a little more of a rich flavor, but that's my only feedback! I'll be buying up a couple more of these to make Buddy's birthday cupcakes next month. They're worth trying, that's for sure.

WOW cake mixes are available in chocolate, yellow, or spice and of course boast natural, normal ingredients just like their cookies. Retailing at just $3.99, each mix will make one 9-inch round or twelve cupcakes - definitely a decent deal for gluten-free, and I like not having a couple dozen cupcakes to sit around and tempt me like other mixes!

I don't know much about a gluten free diet but I can only imagine it is hard to find the right items that taste good.

Those cookies look delicious! I love a softer cookie myself too. I don't have to worry about gluten in my diet but I would still try these.
