Jules Gluten-free Cookie Mix and eBook Giveaway and Review

Jules E. Dowler Shepard has written the wonderful “Jules Gluten-Free Cookie Mix” eBook“, and she has so generously offered to sponsor a gluten-free giveaway of not only her ebook, but an entire gluten-free cookie package which contains 6 bags of her famous gluten-free cookie mix!  Valued at $54.80 (or 69.65 value if purchased separately)!  Read my review below and enter this giveaway!

Jules Cookie Mix E-book

The ebook contains the following recipes:

  • Best Chocolate Chip Cookies… Ever
  • Cherry-White Chocolate Cookies
  • Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • Cranberry-Nut Cookies
  • Double Chocolate Cookies
  • Everything Cookies
  • Ginormous Chocolate Chip Cookie
  • Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies
  • Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies


I made some of her cookies and they tasted wonderful!  She has created these recipes so that they can easily be made dairy-free, as well as gluten-free, by using Ener-G Egg Replacer and Earth Balance Buttery Sticks and Shortening Sticks.  They were delicious!  I know when using any recipe from this eb00k that will be delicious, as Jules will not publish a cookie recipe that doesn’t take like the real thing!

Another great thing about this gluten-free cookie ebook is that nutritional information is provided for each recipe.

My father is visiting us and I just had to make the “Everything Cookies” recipe, as one of the suggestions was pistachio nuts!  My Dad loves them!  Along with some dried cranberries and Macadamia nuts , he was in seventh heaven, as was my husband (who doesn’t really care for nuts). Dad was completely unaware that they were gluten-free!  So, you know they’re good!

The next batch I make will be for the hubby will be the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies!  Yum!  I know I’ll enjoy those, as well.

Each bag of Cookie Mix makes 50-60 cookies.  You can mix up an entire batch with one bag and can freeze any dough you do not wish to bake for future use.  The mix contains Expandex® which adds a great texture, helps in rising and adds shelf life to gluten-free products.  Expandex is a gluten-free modified tapioca starch.

You can really get creative with this recipe, as the add-ins really can be whatever you wish!  However, the recipe ebook is indispensable, as a little bit of orange peel or coconut can make a huge difference.  The mix contains sugar, therefore most of the recipes from Jules Gluten-free Cookie Mix eBook does not call for sugar accept for two of them.  Your add-ins may make them sweeter, but they can be enjoyed and still taste sweet without them.  The flour mixture is a perfect combination!

If you are dairy-free or nut-free, you can use dairy-free chocolate chips.  If you are not nut-free you can also use peanut butter chips.  A couple of brands diary-free chocolate chips are Enjoy Life (also corn-free) and Ener-G.  Please note that this mix contains corn.  See all the nutritional information.

    I have been gluten free for two years and LOVE Jules GF products! Just can’t afford them often as hubby has been unemployed on and off over these two years. BUT they are a real treat for us! My husband thinks they are better than any old fashioned cookie he has ever had. Gluten free or not! That is saying something!

  2. Mandie P says:

    I LOVE JULES GF products and recipes! Finding any “normal” flour substitute is next to impossible but somehow she has managed to accomplish it!! My non-gf friends can very rarely tell the difference!

  6. Carrie Gort says:

    I have been a FB fan of Jules, and have been enjoying reviewing what I’ve found online, but haven’t yet been able to make the investment of purchasing her flour mixes to give her baking a try. She seems incredibly creative and dedicated to the cause. I appreciate her advocacy and creation of a successful business. I’d really like to be able to try baking Jules style. Life without cookies, really good cookies, just stinks. My FB name is Caroline Chromy Gort.
