After writing my Delicious Alchemy Chocolate Brownie & Swedish Glace Vanilla Ice Cream post, I was lucky enough to be contacted by Delicious Alchemy with the offer of being sent some samples in return for an honest review. Of course, I snapped up the offer and was swiftly sent a box of goodies. What follows is the next post in a series of reviews about Delicious Alchemy Gluten & Dairy Free products.
It’s not easy to find nice gluten-free and dairy-free cookies or biscuits, yet in one bag Delicious Alchemy provide most of the ingredients to make some delicious, yet gluten and dairy-free, cookies. You just need to add 75g of unsalted butter or dairy-free alternative and 30ml of water. As with other Delicious Alchemy products, it really is a simple recipe.
After melting together the butter (or rather the dairy-free alternative) and water, I mixed it in with the oaty cookie mix. I decided to throw some dairy-free chocolate in too, but you can have them plain or add something like dried fruit or nuts into the mix to make them that extra bit special.
After shaping the mix into ten cookies, I put them into the pre-heated oven for roughly 18 minutes and began my impatient wait for them to bake. Once baked, they also need to cool before they can be sampled.
So were these Delicious Alchemy Oaty Cookies worth the wait? They certainly were! The cookies were just the right consistency and weren’t too crumbly. I haven’t had cookies in such a long time, but these were a joy to eat.
The real test, however, is to get a non-free-from foodie to try them. Without telling him they’re gluten and dairy-free, I offered Dad a cookie and asked what he thought. He said it was very nice and, when I owned up to them being gluten and dairy-free, he said he’d have never known if I hadn’t told him.
A winner all round, I think. I’m not quite sure ten will be enough, though!
