I know, you just read the title of this post and thought, “Paelo?!” I did too. I have had Paelo foods in the past and well, the bar wasn’t set very high. Really, it wasn’t really set. This was the odd, category of foods that I didn’t really want to venture into in. I have also had people ask me in the past if I was doing Paelo, since I was gluten free.
So, the non-GFBF and I met the owners of “Paelo Folks” when we attended the Gluten Free Allergy Free Expo in Dallas this past year. They are a cute couple, very nice and friendly.
They had three different mixes (cookies, chocolate cake, and pancakes) for sell, and being the brave solo that the non-GFBF is, bought one of each to try. We have tried the cookie mix and the cake mix, and liked the cookie one better. We surprisingly haven’t tried the pancake mix yet…..
The Cookie Mix:
I wasn’t sure what to expect when we tried the cookie mix. However, it honestly wasn’t bad. The dough was similar to an oatmeal rasin mix, and was super easy to mix and prepare to bake.
The mix calls for the items seen in the photo above. I will say, seeing honey as a needed item was refreshing. After you have mixed it all together, you spoon them out like any other cookies, only you will need to slightly wet your hand and flatten them out before you bake them.
They were soft, chewy, and kept the shape they were baked in. They reminded me of oatmeal cookies. I don’t really have anything bad to say about them and would try them again. Especially if you had a glass of almond milk with them. 🙂
