Gone gluten free? Don’t worry, you can still indulge in life's simple pleasures. Delicious baked goods don't have to be a thing of the past when you’re following a gluten free diet. Here, we share some of the tastiest gluten free biscuits around so you can have your cookie and eat it too.
If there’s an expert of gluten free, Orgran is it. Somehow they’ve developed a range of gluten free goodies that are so delicious - and so spot-on to their gluten-containing counterparts - that even those without gluten issues adore their offerings. These Amaretti Biscotti are not ones to mess around. They get down to business in the very first bite, delivering an exquisite crunch that is impressively close to original biscotti. You’d never guess the ingredients list is far from the original, with no wheat, dairy, eggs or animal fat used to make them. Like the original biscuit, these biscotti have the perfect touch of sweetness - but not from over processed white sugar, their sweetness comes from raw sugar and brown rice syrup. The result is a hint of caramel flavour with every bite.
An indulgent 195g of sweet golden deliciousness, Busy Bees’ Anzac biscuits offer just that little bit more so you can spend extra time in biscuit-heaven. Not only are they gluten free, they’re nut free too and make the ideal sweet treat for school lunchboxes when you’ve had no time to bake. The best part is, even though they come from a packet, they’re lovingly made - right here in Australia. Despite the brand’s name, these biscuits don’t contain any bee-made products. In fact, they’re just as golden syrupy as the original Aussie favourite.
Melting Moments are the king of biscuits and these Lemon Cream Melting Moments from Kez’s Kitchen are like the clean version of this delicious royal. Free from gluten, dairy, artificial nasties and cholesterol and made from real, quality ingredients, they won’t leave any tastebuds unsatisfied no matter your dietary requirements. Like all good melting moments, they melt in the mouth delivering the sweet and creamy flavour everyone expects of a good biscuit. They more than fit to the brand’s befitting mantra: that everyone deserves to enjoy delicious treats made from quality ingredients.
These baked bikkies are perfect for breakfast on-the-go. They’re kind of like a mix between breakfast and a biscuit, which is ideal for anyone who likes to start the day on the sweeter side of life. With a medley of dried fruits embedded inside a wheat-free bar, they’re just like a bowl of baked muesli but in a handy rectangular-form. A hint of honey keeps things sweet while the fibre inside will help keep you full til lunchtime. A box conveniently includes five individually wrapped serves making it easy to grab and go on busy mornings.
On the hunt for gluten free biscuits your kiddos will love? These bikkies are a great option for kiddos who need to avoid gluten but still love to nibble a cookie or two. Cut into cute animal shapes that are made from quality gluten-free ingredients, any kid - big or small - is sure to love these Zoo Biscuits. Made with real butter and a little honey they’re just like homemade minus the fuss, which not only makes them taste great but keeps parents happy too.
Chock full of choc chips, these classic kids’ biscuits have been an Aussie favourite for decades. Free from gluten and other nasties, they’re still produced right here in Australia. Little ones love choosing their favourite bear - Hungry, Sleepy, Cheeky, Silly, Grumpy or Happy - and will happily munch a bag in record time. And what parent doesn’t like an easy snack their kids are guaranteed to eat? (Not to mention the sweet and satisfying leftovers for those parents who are partial to eating residual crumbs…)
Choc Ripples biscuits are the perfect biscuit personified. Lucky for us, they happen to be gluten free too. These are THE biscuit for chocolate lovers. Not all chocolate is gluten free but Arnott’s have created the ultimate chocky bikkie even gluten sensitive and celiacs can enjoy. Rich in flavour with a decadent dose of choc ripples throughout, cocoa is the star of the show with these drool worthy biscuits. They’re satisfyingly sweet, crisp and crunchy and just so happy to pair perfectly with a cuppa (but have also been known to be a preeminent after-dinner dessert when crumbled over ice-cream). Compared to other chocolate biscuits on the market these beauties win hands down; something we’re putting down to the perfect combination of golden syrup, butter and cocoa powder inside.
Boasting a real gingery bite, these are the perfect fit for biscuits-lovers who aren’t afraid of flavour. Their sweet ginger aroma hits you right in the tastebuds the moment the packet is opened. Just like the original biscuit, these ginger nuts are unputdownable and irresistibly moreish. In fact, the only real difference lies in the ingredients list - which is great for us gluten-avoiders. Leda have chosen a complex mix of gluten free flours as their base, pairing them with sweet golden syrup and a hefty dose of ginger powder to create a sweet and sensuous biscuit with a crunch that no other ginger nut biscuit can compete with.
A golden oldie, Jam Drops are the epitome of the perfect biscuit. This recipe will have you whipping up a gluten free version without the fuss, creating a jam-filled biscuit the entire family will devour.
