Angels and Cookies: Free From Cookie Dough

Wednesday, 19 July 2017





Last weekend, my sister, Kirsty and I went down to London to visit The Allergy and Free From Show. As you are all aware, my family is a free from one, but my sister's family eats normally, so it was interesting to see what she'd think of the free from food available.


Although I am a free from blogger, I was visiting more as a parent of a free from child. I wanted to see what was available that would also be safe for Mikey.


There was so much to see and to be honest, it was a bit overwhelming! There were stalls as far as the eye could see!


I wasn't expecting anything, and although I liked the look of some products, there was always an ingredient that could pose a serious danger to Mikey. That was, until I found a little stall from the business Angels and Cookies.






Angels and Cookies have created some free from ready made cookie dough. Now to some it might sound daft, but I gave up baking for the kids because I couldn't find a recipe or solution that would create safe, tasty food and hold together!


I have to admit, I was really intrigued. I spoke to the lovely ladies at the stall and it was like I was finally talking to someone who understood. They knew that baking could be hard if you suffer from multiple allergies and that even a little thing like eating a cookie with a friend can help to make you feel 'normal'.


Angels and Cookies cookie dough is 14 allergen free, including gluten free, wheat free, egg free, dairy free, nut free and is also vegan. It is also made in a gluten free, wheat free and nut free environment, which was music to my ears :)

Kirsty and I tried some samples and we were both hooked! I had to snap some tubs up there and then!









I couldn't wait to make them and surprise Mikey! In fact, neither could Kirsty, as she helped me make them (and "taste test" them) when she came round for a playdate later that week!



Chocolate Fudge



 As soon as Mikey came in from school, we surprised him. He was a little wary to begin with, but after a check (and double check) of the tub, he was over the moon!







He was so pleased that he can eat 'normal' cookies that even those in our family who don't have allergies also love!


Dorothy was also excited, but I think that was because she could eat another cookie!






Eating cookies as a family seemed like a bit of a pipedream to us, but Angels and Cookies have made it a reality. It may sound a bit (okay, maybe a lot) corny, but they really are angels!

We can't wait to make the chocolate chip cookies next!


Angels and Cookies Cookie Dough comes in three flavours; Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Chip and Ginger Spice. 

The cookie dough is £7.99 for a 350g tub. You can take out just what you need, or in our case, use the whole thing! It can also be refrigerated for a month or frozen for two, which is great if you don't want to use it all in one go.


You can find out more about Angels and Cookies and buy your cookie dough  at www.angelsandcookies.co.uk. They can also be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook :)

  1. Those cookies look so tasty, and how amazing it must have been for the whole family to enjoy them. It's a simple thing that I suppose I take for granted as my children don't have any allergies, but I can completely understand how huge it must be to your family to find something like this! x #KCACOLS

  2. What an amazing idea! I am guilty of taking it for granted that I can bake with my children, I forget that such a simple thing like baking (and eating!) cookies with your children is not always possible- until now that is. They look amazing, and are making me feel hungry! #KCACOLS

  4. This looks fab! My fiance has been following a vegan diet and I've found it so hard to share treats. The kids look like they're loving them!

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time
