I would suggest contacting Cybele at info@cybelesreadytoeat.com . I saw on their Facebook page that the cookies will be ready to ship in June, and the availability of the products will be announced at that time. My guess is, they are still lining up distribution.

Hello, Does anyone know of a peanut/nut free snack bar that is portable, healthy and not loaded with refined sugars and ingredients that I can't even pronounce?! I know there are products out there that are peanut free but they are not very healthy. Any help would be much appreciated! Sahba

Re: New Food Find: Allergy-Friendly Cookies Made in a Dedicated Allergy-Free Facility

MAM-mom ·
Hi Sahba! Welcome to KFA!! The one that comes to my mind is the bars from Enjoy Life Foods . Click on the flavors to see the ingredients lists and decide if you think they are okay in terms of refined sugar (evaporated cane sugar) and ingredients you can't pronounce. I sort of know what you mean but my tolerance is probably different from yours. I know that a lot of granola bars and fruit bars are indeed a risk for people with tree nut and peanut allergies. If the Enjoy Life ones don't work...

Re: New Food Find: Allergy-Friendly Cookies Made in a Dedicated Allergy-Free Facility

Hi Sahba Try PeanutFree Planet www.peanutfreeplanet.com, I believe... You need to read ingredients carefully, because they distribute products manufactured by many co's, and the ingredients vary widely by product; however, you can find snack bars and energy bars there. Try EnerPro...they might work for you. They work for my son, and are fairly high in protein. He also likes the Enjoy Life ones. I like the idea of making your own, too. Good Luck! TC

I never can find this in a store. I love their Veganaise with the purple top. I so missed BLTs and chicken salad. With Veganaise, tofu and xantham gum, I can even make crab cakes like my MIL (lots of bread crumbs) but it holds together.

Also, I wanted to mention Trader Joe's carries the non-mint brownie crisps, and they are delicious! I'm fairly certain these are the Lucy's brownie crisps private labeled. Gluten, egg, nut, and dairy-free. (Of the top 8, they only contain soy.)
