Ok, but what is gluten?
Before we go any further, let’s define our terms –what is gluten?
Gluten is the key protein found in the grains wheat, barley, and rye. These grains, especially wheat, are commonly eaten in the form of bread, pasta, and other flour-based foods.
Wheat flour is also often used to bake desserts like cookies, muffins, cakes and pies. In other words, gluten is everywhere!
As common as gluten is, the protein is not for everyone. Gluten isn’t digested well by some people, and some even have autoimmune diseases that can make it harmful for them to eat glutinous grains. Not all grains are glutinous, though. Rice, oats, quinoa and others can be safely eaten by anyone with a gluten intolerance, as long as these grains are certified gluten-free.
Going gluten-free is a choice for many people, but for others, it’s a requirement for their health.
Gluten intolerances and allergies are extremely common, and someone dealing with one of these conditions needs to stay away from gluten to avoid unwanted and potentially harmful issues. For anyone with a gluten intolerance or allergy, finding desserts to enjoy that are safe to eat can be a real struggle – but it shouldn’t have to be.
In addition to the many people who avoid gluten out of necessity, more and more others are going gluten-free by choice. Some avoid gluten for health reasons, while others just want to try something new.
Going gluten-free became increasingly popular throughout the 2010s, and the food industry responded accordingly, with many companies starting to produce gluten-free snacks and desserts to meet the growing demand.
People stick to gluten-free diets for multiple reasons – some out of necessity, some based on preference. Others just enjoy including a gluten-free treat in their diet from time to time. Whichever category you fall into,Nunbelievable’s gluten-free cookies are perfect for you!
How are gluten-free cookies made?
To bake a cookie, you’ll need flour of some kind. Flour is made by grinding something into a fine powder, which can then be mixed with other ingredients to make dough. This dough can then be combined with additional ingredients to make it sweet, baked in the oven, and thenvoila– you’ve got a cookie!
While most cookies throughout culinary history have been baked using wheat-based flour as the base for their dough, we’ve come a long way since the dawn of cookiedom.
Modern cookie-baking has brought some incredible innovations with it, including the popularization of many types ofgluten-free flour. Nowadays, it’s common to find cookies baked with oats, rice flour, coconut flour, or almond flour, all of which are gluten-free!
With a great gluten-free flour (we use one made of rice for our cookies), you’ve got the base for a delicious cookie! A few more ingredients get thrown in the mix – eggs, sugar, butter, somechocolate chips – and you’re in business. Gluten-free cookies aren’t all that different from their glutinous counterparts, after all. They’re just made with a non-wheat flour so that they’ll be safe to eat for anyone with a gluten allergy or intolerance.
But do gluten-free cookies taste as good as regular ones?
When it comes to gluten-free cookies, there’s one question that’s probably on your mind more than any other – do they taste as good as regular cookies?
