Fudge-Striped Turkey Cookies — GF/EF/PF

*This post was sponsored by Goodie Girl Cookies; all opinions are my own, as always*

Whether you were diagnosed celiac or with a food allergy/intolerance, I guarantee you can imagine the Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies. Remember them?

I always wondered: why are gluten free, allergy friendly cookies as cute as their gluten counterparts?

Well, thanks to Goodie Girl, now they are! They recently released their fudge striped cookies which are gluten free, egg free, and peanut free {they contain dairy and soy, but not soybean oil– so they’re safe for me}.

And they’ve made the commitment to purity protocol oats for their oat flour in the Fudge Striped {and the rest of their cookies!}. Hallelujah.

According to Alyssa, their social media coordinator:

“Yes, our supplier uses Purity Protocol.  Avena Foods has documentation on how they practice Purity Protocol when growing, milling and transporting the oats used in our products.”

Paleo/Vegan/GF Fall Pancakes

Disclaimer: I now serve as a Barney Butter Ambassador. BB provides me with product only, in exchange for use in my daily life. You all know I’ve been obsessed with BB for years, so I’m excited to begin my ambassadorship with them!

Okay, for someone who has to eat gluten free, egg free, and low carb, pancakes are far from the simplest breakfast option. FAR FROM.

However, when BB sent me their almond flour to play with this quarter, I knew one of my first attempts would have to be delicious fall pancakes that are not only GF/EF, but also don’t have any added fruit purees that wreck havoc on my morning BGs.

And folks, I’m proud to say I’ve done it.

My family has a tradition of pancakes on Thanksgiving morning while we watch the parade. For the last couple years, I haven’t found anything worth eating or sharing. This year, I’ll be stacking these high and reigniting our tradition.
