23 of the Best Gluten-Free Cookie Brands

Looking for a gluten-free cookie to go with your ice cold glass of milk but aren't sure which brands are safe to eat? Check out this list of gluten-free cookie brands!

Remember when gluten-free cookies were all akin to sawdust and beach sand? Today that bad reputation persists even though GF cookies are (mostly) no longer a textural nightmare. Gluten-free cookie brands have raised the bar and created many products that people wouldn’t even know are GF without being told.

While we’re on the subject, I need to confess that cookies are my Achilles’ heel. (Well, one of them.) I don’t know who came up with serving sizes, but they’re foolish to think that I’m going to stop after eating just two cookies. I’ve always heard about how important it is to listen to your body while eating, and my body tells me that it needs at least five cookies to be satisfied.

Use our list of Gluten-Free Ice Cream Brands to make your own GF ice cream sandwiches with these GF cookies.

What Are the Most Popular Gluten-Free Cookie Brands Available?

We have compiled the following list of gluten-free cookies for your snacking delight.

Annie’s Homegrown

  • Gluten Free Cocoa & Vanilla Bunny Grahams

Cross-Contamination: Annie’s takes many precautions to avoid gluten cross-contamination in their gluten-free products.

To help reduce possible cross-contamination at those facilities, Annie’s employees manufacture products in a specific order, then dismantle and completely clean and sanitize the equipment in between production runs. They also regularly test the products to verify that their precautions have been effective. (Source: Annie’s Homegrown)

Great Value

  • Great Value Gluten-Free Chocolate Creme Sandwich Cookies

Cross-Contamination: Many of the Great Value gluten-free products have a GFCO certification, but Walmart doesn’t make it easy to find more information about this house brand. Great Value doesn’t have a website of its own, and we’re assuming that’s because the products are manufactured and packaged by a variety of food corporations. Basically, brands you know and love are creating products for Walmart under the Great Value brand. That makes it difficult to find out more information on a specific product.

After a couple of emails to Walmart, we were given a number we can call to ask about a specific product: 877-505-2267. If you have concerns about these Great Value cookies, use that number to contact GV directly.

Where To Buy: Great Value is a brand exclusive to Walmart.

What To Look for When Selecting Gluten-Free Cookie Brands

While the above cross-contamination sections of our gluten-free cookie brands list can be a big help for sensitive GF eaters, we haven’t covered every brand that may be safe. When you’re at the grocery store and want to pick up a package of GF cookies to enjoy, what should you look for?

GCFO Certification

If you are especially sensitive to gluten, you should consider sticking to the GF cookie brands on this list with a GFCO certification. The GFCO provides independent verification of gluten-free foods and ensures that the products are at or below 10 ppm of gluten.

Malt

Any product containing wheat must carry an allergy warning, but not all gluten-containing ingredients will be clear to consumers. One of the most overlooked ingredients is malt. It’s an unsafe ingredient for gluten-free eaters that is regularly used in baked goods and candy.

Malt is typically derived from barley, though less frequently it’s made from rice, corn, wheat, and rye. On the ingredients label, look for the following:

  • malt
  • malt extract
  • malt flavoring
  • malt syrup
  • malted milk

If you see any of these ingredients and you cannot tolerate gluten, know that the product is unsafe for you.

Please share this list of gluten-free cookie brands with your friends and family so we can help keep everyone safe!
