Product Review: Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been waiting for months to write out that title.  Today is finally the day!  Can I get an AMEN??  LOL!  I posted yesterday that I had finally found the GF Chocolate Chex & 3 of the 4 Betty Crocker Mixes at Kroger.  I had to make one of the mixes and the Chocolate Chip Cookies it was.  Jon wanted to help/watch.  See if they looked any different than the ones I make from scratch. 

Jon, ready for action (Please excuse the goofy look on his face.  Why he can’t smile is beyond me.  Oh, wait, I almost forgot, he is 13):

First things first, get all your ingredients out.  This mix is super simple.  You only need to add 1 egg and 1 tsp of vanilla.  It doesn’t get much easier then this.  I went ahead & told Jon not to get his expectations set too high.  He is in love with my homemade, from scratch, chocolate chip cookies and I didn’t want him to be disappointed with the cookies from the mix.  I didn’t think that the cookies would be bad, but just that they might not live up to the expectations of a 13 year old boy. ;)

Jon asked me to make him a “monster cookie”:

This thing was huge!  It was on the same size plate as those 2 “normal” size cookies above.  Jon treated this as his “pre-baseball game snack”, along with a glass of milk.  He made quick work of it:

Yes, he did indeed lick the plate.  That’s my boy!

Not only did Jon & I sample these cookies, but I fed them to 2, super-picky 6 & 7 year old non-gluten-free girls and they loved them!  was super impressed with the taste & texture.  They were freakily (is that a word?) close to my homemade, from scratch, chocolate chip cookies.  I also fed one to my Dad when he came to pick up my sister, he also loved it and couldn’t believe how good they were.  The last, but not least, taste tester was my BFF, Amanda.  She commented that she couldn’t tell they were GF at all and they tasted just like “normal” chocolate chip cookies!  Well done, Betty Crocker, well done.  :)  I can only find one negative about this cookie mix and that is that the price is a little higher than I expected it to be at $4.49/box.  It is cheaper than a lot of other GF mixes on the market, though, so really, not too bad.  Also, Betty Crocker’s mixes are available on Amazon.com and if you sign up for the “Subscribe & Save” program, they end up being $3.33/box (only come in cases of 6) and your shipping is free.  The program is free to join and you choose the frequency and can change or  cancel at any time.

  1. what a great review! and great tip about amazon.

  2. Thanks for the review. I have a box waiting to be baked in my pantry. I made the yellow cake today and it was also very good. I think the price is okay because of the convenience factor. I mean my kid’s Sunday school teacher can just pick up a box of cookie mix and a disposable pan and make cookies last minute that my daughter can have, what’s better than that?!

    • Yes, it is awesome that others can now easily make something GF for us or our family members. :)

  3. I also tried these a week ago and agree with your review – they tasted awesome! The only difference I found was that there is a little “graininess” to the texture but the taste was no different than a chocolate chip cookie made with wheat flour. The brownies are very good too.

    • Ann,

      I can’t wait to make the brownies! I think this weekend is the time.

      Have you found & tried the Devil’s Food Cake? I think I am going to order from Amazon once I hear how it is.

  4. the mixes are 3.99 here in tulsa. i have tried the yellow cake and devil’s food so far and my coworkers liked both but devil’s food is the favorite.

  5. [...] seeking them out since I heard they were coming out!  LOL!  I made & reviewed the Chocolate Chip Cookies the other day and we love them!  I needed a dessert for Father’s Day dinner, so what [...]

  6. [...] Now, that is saying something!  So, Betty Crocker, you are 3 for 3 so far.  The brownies, cookies & Devil’s Food Cake have all been hits.  Now, I have one last mix to sample:  [...]

  7. This was so great to read about the cookies. I must put them in the oven, I got a little thrown off when I thought the mix was too dry, so I added an extra egg (duck egg) and the mix was a little soupy, but I have my fingers crossed. After looking at your picture, I can see that I should have just continued with the mixing. I will see how they come out. I also substituted a non dairy margerine, as my son and I have slight problems with gluten, but mainly big problems with diary. Again, thanks for the review.
