Gluten free Oreos are here! You heard that right, the holy grail of cookies has now joined the gluten free world and I think they almost broke the internet according to CNN! You just have to wait until Jan 2021…
I can’t wait to make all my old Oreo recipes. I make these delicious Oreo cream cheese balls covered in chocolate. I’ll post the recipe once I get my hands on the Oreos! They just were not the same with the other brands. Don’t get me wrong though, the other brands such as Trader Joe’s, Glutino, and Kinnikinnick are very good, but come on… it’s Oreos!
Gluten Free Oreos are a Game Changer
This is a big move in the gluten free community. Not only is Oreo making a gluten free cookie, but they are going all in! They are getting the highest gluten free certification on the market from gluten.org.
What does that mean? Well from my perspective Oreo is not cutting any corners. They are spending the money in manufacturing and certification to get the best gluten free certification in the business. This is HUGE!
I really hope other companies see how successful this cookie will be and follow their lead. I know there has been some dislike for the fact that they waited this long to go gluten free, but if the market is not there, I can’t blame them.
How Do Gluten Free Oreos Taste?
I’ll have a fresh response here when I get my hands on some. I may have an inside track to get some before they come out in January… But I have to wait right now just like the rest of us!
Gluten Free Oreos and Their Oat Flour
There has been some pushback on the recipe due to the oat flour used in the recipe. I understand the concern as it is very much an issue in the gluten free community, but with the Gluten Intolerance Group certification, it does not get any more certified here in the US. As always, use your judgement, but in my opinion if we can’t trust the highest certification then there is something wrong with the process. As it comes out and people eat it, I’m sure more will come to light.
So give me a shout when you get your hands on these Oreos! I hope you are excited about these as much as I am. This is going to be a huge win for the gluten free community that I hope really launches others brands to follow! Only time will tell!
