April 15, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 19, 2015There’s nothing better than a soft, perfectly baked cookie. I say this with loads of experience in eating over cooked, practically burnt cookies. My Mom, bless her heart, would make us chocolate chip cookies all the time. The only problem was, she had no idea how to make them. They’d come out hard as a rock, black on the bottom, and flat as can be. I have great memories of my sister and I dressing up in my Dad’s suits and pretending we were Men in Black fighting aliens with our chocolate chip cookie disc weapons. Thankfully, Enjoy Life soft baked cookies are nothing at all like alien weapons. They’re so deliciously soft and perfectly sized. Kevin and I spent the evening last week taste testing these little morsels of goodness that Alina at Enjoy Life was kind enough to send us. What did we think? no-oats “oatmeal”: 3 cookies out of 4. Kevin doesn’t like raisins, so I was alone on this one. I believe they use rice flakes as a replacement for oats [I love this trick in the kitchen!] and it works out quite nicely. I would have liked to see more currants because I loooove currants, but there was a healthy amount of them. double chocolate brownie: 2 cookies out of 4. The taste is fantastic. There are little bits of chocolate chips in each cookie that makes it that much more enjoyable. The flavor was good, but I’m not a huge chocolate fan, so it left something to be desired for me. Kevin was on the fence about them too, so we gave it a 2 out of 4. snickerdoodle: 4 cookies out of 4. I practically had to peel the box from Kevin’s hands. He definitely would have eaten them all in one sitting if I hadn’t stopped him. These are our favorite. Although they’re a bit softer than a regular snickerdoodle and don’t have quite the same taste, they are still fantastic. You’ll get no complaints from us! Why we love Enjoy Life I remember finding Enjoy Life a couple of months after beginning my gluten free journey. The first thing I tried was their Cinnamon Crunch granola [delicious!] and it quickly moved on to their cookies, cereals, bars, and trail mixes. I’ve been baking with Enjoy Life products for awhile and love the results, a couple of my favorites are: chocolate truffle cookies apple spice and everything nice bars everything’s good bars and last but not least, carrot and apple breakfast cake I was intrugued by this company because:
