Here are some of the big benefits of eating gluten free cookies.

Avoid Gluten Sensitivity Problems

Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat products, as well as foods made from barley and rye. For most people, this protein is processed by their bodies without any issue. However, some have a gluten sensitivity or intolerance, which can lead to various forms of discomfort ranging from general lethargy to stomach pain. 

In rare cases, some individuals have celiac disease, whereby gluten consumption causes the body to trigger an autoimmune response that can damage the lining of the small intestine, leading to further digestive issues and the inability to properly absorb nutrients.

Some of the symptoms experienced by gluten-sensitive individuals include abdominal pain, bloating and diarrhoea. These symptoms are often caused by the inflammatory response triggered in the gut by the gluten.

If you have a gluten sensitivity or you’re not sure, eating gluten free cookies can help you avoid these kinds of symptoms altogether.

Enjoy More Nutiritional Value

Owing to the fact that wheat, barley and rye all contain gluten, the making of gluten free cookies requires innovative recipes that use alternative flours as a substitute. Almond flour, coconut flour and white rice flour are all alternatives that allow for gluten free cookies. These flours often have more nutritional value than traditional wheat flour, therefore ensuring that the calories in your cookies are better earned. 

Using these alternative ingredients can also provide a unique texture and flavour to the cookies, which makes them even more delicious than before ‒ if that’s even possible. It is amazing how much a different type of flour can influence the way a cookie crumbles in your mouth!
