Some people have a wheat allergy or a non-celiac gluten sensitivity, which can be just as painful, but doesn’t cause permanent intestinal damage.
Because gluten-free products lack gluten, it can sometimes be difficult to make them taste good. This is not the the case with Maxine’s Heavenly! We’ve found delicious gluten alternatives to make our cookies soft and delicious.
We use brown rice flour in our cookies instead of wheat flour. Brown rice flour is made from whole grain rice, which contains bran, and has more nutrients than white rice flour. It is also more flavorful, adding a sweet and slightly nutty flavor to our cookies.
We also use gluten free oats. Oats themselves are gluten free, but many commercial oats are contaminated by wheat and other products that are processed in the same facility. They are also often grown next to wheat in fields.
