Welcome to “My Dad’s Cookies” Gluten Free Cookies!
My name is Elan, I am the baker of My dads cookies. My Dads Cookies was created in 2010 in NYC.
My Dads Cookies was started for children, who have Celiac and gives them options to eat there favorite cookies as there friends. The cookies look and taste as the ones that they miss eating. During Birthday parties, family gatherings serve all the My Dads Cookies classics, nobody will know they are gluten free and the child will just smile and say thank you that all the attention was focused on the party and not on the special food for the child.
As a parent I was always concerned about children bulling other children, In this case it was a child eating a cookie made from potatoes and rice.with a allergy called Celiac Gluten Free .
When children heard about this they acted very cruel and the child had tears running down there cheeks every day, and would be made fun of because eating something different.
My mission and goal was to create cookies that look and taste like the real ones that people with celiac young & old miss eating. The products would be made of great ingredients,non dairy, nut free & be Kosher.
3 years later and countless tastings the East Coast brand was established, My Dads cookies gluten Free. We are located in Brooklyn Ny and create gluten free pizza crust, loaf cakes, mini cupcakes. My Dads Cookies is Certified Gluten Free and the baking facility is Nut & dairy Free.
Mydadscookies , strives to give to schools, charities, hospitals and events baked goods for special events.
As a baker I just want to see the children with this disease smile and tell us how Delicious our cookies are and most of all hearing them say Thank you
is worth all the early mornings. — Elan Molina
“My Dad’s Cookies” Gluten Free Cookies have arrived at Zabar’s!
Over the years I have tasted a lot of packaged cookies for the purposes of professional evaluation (It’s not as fun as it sounds; I’ve tasted a lot more duds than delights in my day). I have come to the conclusion that it is not easy to make a gluten-free cookie that is really nice to eat. Not easy at all. And these are really and truly good. So in my professional opinion, this is a significant achievement.
Gluten is a protein, prevalent in wheat and related species. It is what gives baked goods their structure and texture, so while it was always possible to use real butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla to make gluten-free cookies, texture was, and remains, the biggest challenge.
My Dad’s Cookies are the first gluten-free cookies I have ever tasted that I didn’t think tasted like gluten-free cookies. It’s no wonder, since these are the recipes of a Dad on a mission to develop cookie recipes for his child with Celiac disease. Each cookie recipe requires a different mix of gluten-free flours to get the right texture. So, the crisp Linzers have a different formula than the chewy Chocolate Chips. This attention to detail is why these cookies work. An unrelated but nice bonus isthat these are locally produced just 30 miles away in Brooklyn, NY.
Currently, Zabar’s carries 6 My Dad’s Cookies varieties, including Raspberry Linzer (my personal favorite for the great raspberry flavor), Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Fancy, Chocolate Sandwich, Cranergy, Black & White, and Chocoláno. $6.98/6oz. They are currently displayed in the front of the store, just to the right of the customer service counter. Check them out the next time you’re in!

There is no gluten in a typical piece of chocolate, so those with gluten sensitivities can enjoy a chocolate Easter bunny—and jelly beans, too. Your gluten-sensitive loved ones might just prefer an Easter basket filled with My Dad’s cookies.

Symptoms of gluten sensitivity include gastrointestinal problems, headaches, fatigue and other reactions. In addition, some 1 in 133 Americans have celiac disease, a serious condition that can lead to malnutrition and osteoporosis. People can go for decades without exhibiting symptoms, only to have the disease suddenly trigger.
