Lucy’s Gluten-Free Cookies: Crisp, Crunchy & Irresistible

CAPSULE REPORT: Dr. Lucy Gibney is an M.D. with an allergic child. That’s not rare: Food allergies affect 11-12 million Americans, or one in 25 people.

But all allergic people can now benefit from that one child’s allergies. What started as Dr. Gibney’s home baking experiments has resulted in a line of crispy, crunchy cookies that tastes great. And, they’re made without the major allergens: eggs, casein, dairy, gluten, peanuts and tree nuts. The cookies are so mainstream good that anyone will enjoy them.

In fact, they’re available at Starbucks stores nationwide. So pick up a package the next time you stop in for coffee.

Lucy’s Cookies are a boon to more than those seeking a certified gluten-free treat. The cookies are certified vegan and kosher pareve.

Lucy’s Cookies Overview

You don’t need to have special dietary restrictions to enjoy Lucy’s Cookies. But the four flavors of allergy-friendly cookies will be welcome in any home.

To quote one of our editors, “I didn’t want to taste them. I’m a devoted butter-and-egg baker. But, they’re really delicious. Kudos to Lucy.”

So, cast the trepidation to the winds and take a bite of:

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Cinnamon Thin Cookies
  • Oatmeal Cookies
  • Sugar Cookies

In addition to their beguiling crisp, crunchy quality, Lucy’s Cookies are distinguished by their vigilance. Baked in the company’s dedicated facility (they’re moving to a larger one due to demand for the product), the allergen control program does selectively sourcing of ingredients and tests for trace allergens in the on-site lab.


A stack of oatmeal cookies: no allergens allowed.

You’ll be a happy camper with a box of Lucy’s Cookies. Be sure to try all the flavors.
