Gluten Free Cookies by Nairn's

As gluten free becomes more mainstream, people are seeking options that are not only nutritious, but delicious as well. Nairn’s creates gluten free products that are oat-based, which means they are high in fiber, essential vitamins, minerals and beta-glucans. Oats have been shown to be a quality source of energy as well as promote healthy digestion and lower cholesterol, making them the next big superfood.

Nairn’s treats are bursting with natural flavor and are free of artificial colors. Full of wholegrain Scottish oat goodness, this alternative to gluten will leave you wanting more. That's right, they are a product of Scotland!

Flavors available include:

* Oatmeal Grahams
* Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies
* Stem Ginger Oat Cookies
* Oatmeal Raisin Oat Cookies
* Whole Grain Oat Crackers
Recently I received 2 packages of the Gluten Free Cookies from Nairn's to try out for all of you. Over the past few months...my family has been leaning more towards gluten-free products due to some GI issues that my husband and mother both suffer from. We were excited to try out these cookies for all of you. Let's get started!

The Nairn's Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies are certified gluten-free. Each cookie is only 45 calories making them a great choice for those who are watching their weight. In addition, they are suitable for Vegans and contain zero trans fat.

The Nairn's Stem Ginger & Oatmeal Cookies are certified gluten-free. Each cookie is only 45 calories just like the oatmeal & raisin. They are suitable for Vegans and contain zero trans fat. Again, a great choice for those who are watching their weight.
Last week I had a little get-together here at my home and served the Nairn's gluten-free cookies. One of the things I like about them is that each box contains 4 individual packages and there are 4 cookies in each. This makes them a great take-along snack, great for packing into the lunch bag or keep a few in your desk at work to help curb the afternoon munchies.

Next...these are a firm cookie...what I would consider like a shortbread biscuit. They are not a soft & chewy cookie, so if you have jaw or chewing problems, they probably aren't for you. With that said, I do love their texture which makes them really nice to have alongside a hot beverage. While I like soft & chewy cookies...I also like cookies with this type of firmness too.

Everyone who tried them here at my get-together really LOVED the Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies. A few did like the Ginger & Oatmeal but most preferred the Oatmeal & Raisin. However, if you ask my mother...she was all over the Ginger & Oatmeal and was quite happy to practically devour those herself!

You can learn more about the gluten-free cookies and crackers by Nairn's by visiting their site online. Would I buy them? You bet! With that said, I don't think they are for everyone.
