Recently I’ve found quite a few dairy and soy free snacks for Colin and myself. This group I found at Trader Joe’s. Hopefully you are lucky enough to have one near you. They have a unique selection of items and great prices.
1. Trader Joe’s Freeze Dried Banana Chips- These are just freeze dried bananas. They are great for us because they are just bananas, no other ingredients and they dissolve pretty quickly compared to the usual dried bananas. I can eat them and if I break them up into little pieces, Colin can eat them.
2. Trader Joe’s Coconut chips -These are little flakes of coconut. They are small, like a little piece of tape. They aren’t quite what I would think of as flakes and not quite chips. They are sweet and crunchy and something I can have when I need that little something sweet to munch on.
3. Trader Joe’s Top 8 Allegern Free Soft Baked Snickerdoodles – I really like these cookies. They are free of the top 8 allergens and are soft and chewy right out of the box. If you’ve tasted my snickerdoodle recipe, they taste nothing like that. They are much closer to a soft ginger snap in my opinion. I think the dates and brown sugar in the cookie create a molasses-like flavor. They are very very yummy!
4. Trader Joe’s Spiced Cider – I have to put this on the list because I tell everyone about their cider. Yes, you can get cider just about anywhere these days and adding mulling spices yourself isn’t hard, but I love this cider. It is cider, not just apple juicen and the spices are just right. All you need to do is warm up a mug and find a quiet place to enjoy it!
