Last year, July 9th to be exact I did a post on Red Mango's new GF Cookie topping. I have not seen this GF cookie topping in nyc, only in Long Island so far. I usually frequent the Wheatly Plaza location in Roslyn. Recently I found myself there again. After an appointment I was starving. I went to Wheatly Plaza sat down and had a size medium half Raspberry Cheesecake/Original flavor with GF cookie crumble. It was delicious. As I was waiting on line, I got chatty with the Manager of that location. We were talking gluten-free.
From what I hear the baker behind the GF wonder is a close personal friend of his. And they now carry her Banana Bread, Carrot Cake Bread and Pumpkin Bread. I tasted the pumpkin bread, it was amazing, along with like 5 additional gf cookies, not including the crumble that saturated my fro yo. Oye! I even made my dad who is not gluten free eat them. We all loved them. I have been loving these cookies for a while but never got around to blogging about them. Her baked goods are gourmet, and they do contain egg, soy and they are not kosher but they are gluten-free and casein-free. Her baked goods go by the name of GlutenFreeCookieLovers.com. Check out her story!
In addition to her chocolate chip cookies, banana sweet bread, Pumpkin sweet bread, and carrot sweet bread, this family also bakes zucchini sweet bread and date nut sweet bread. Sweet! All baked goods are made in a Celiac safe kitchen. You can also follow this team on facebook and twitter.
They come in delightful little containers with pink dots. The execution of their packaging is adorable. Their website is great. It is inviting, which is most important. It tells a true story. A struggle like most of us diagnosed have had. They are a family joined together because of their daughter's illness that was finally diagnosed. A big Italian family who loves to have huge celebrations and eat tons of pasta, now had a huge obstacle in their lives. A Celiac daughter. What to do. Gather the family and bake till you find the perfect cookie. Turn it into a business and sell world-wide. Three cheers for this family, taking a negative and turning it into a positive. We all know how Italians love there food, you better believe these cookies rock just based on that! You can even order online!

So there you have it. Another amazing GF baked good find! I hope you all try this amazing baked goods! I kid you not, it's so worth it!
Enjoy! xoxo Julie
