Are you an Oreo fan?

Back in 2013 when we went gluten-free, there was not a single gluten-free Oreo type cookie available for us, and we really missed them! It’s tough to beat the combo of chocolate wafer cookies and vanilla cream in this iconic treat. Oreos are a fun store-bought cookie for snacking, but they’re also fabulous for Gluten-Free Oreo Pie Crust, and sweet treats of all kinds.

Oreo gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies

Oreo Gluten-Free Oreos (Our Favorite)

  • COST: $3-5 per pack
  • WHERE TO BUY: Target, Safeway, Walmart, most grocery stores!, Vitacost
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? They contain no egg/dairy/animal products but are not certified vegan.
  • TASTE NOTES: All the classic texture & test you’re looking for. I literally can’t tell the difference!

Oreo fans rejoice! The original chocolate sandwich cookie brand now makes gluten-free Oreos! For most of my family’s gluten-free life, Oreo didn’t carry a gluten-free version. I LOVE that they do now! And, it even has the same flavor of the classic Oreos you love.

Oreo makes both gluten-free Oreos and Gluten-Free Double Stuf Oreos. Both are as delicious as I remember regular Oreos tasting, and they work well for snacking or baked goods! Best of all, they’re carried in many of the stores that carry Oreo products (many chain stores across the U.S.)!

KinnKinnick K-Toos

  • COST: $4-6
  • WHERE TO BUY: Kinnikinnick, Amazon, Sprouts, Basha’s, Safeway, Albertson’s, Whole Foods, Vitacost
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? Yes! They’re certified vegan. (And Dairy-Free)
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: We usually use these for baking, rather than snacking.

KinniTOOS or K-Toos gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies are a reliable option free from dairy, nuts, eggs, gluten, soy, and peanuts. They’re certified vegan, which makes them a great option for the vegan or egg-free crowd!

Also worth calling out, this brand also makes gluten-free vanilla wafers, animal crackers, graham crackers, and more!

Though harder to find, KTOOS come in MANY varieties—vanilla with vanilla filling, chocolate with chocolate filling, birthday cake, cinni-bun, and more! We like most of these flavors even better than the original!

Glutino chocolate creme gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies

Glutino Chocolate Creme Cookies

  • COST: $5-6
  • WHERE TO BUY: Glutino, Sprouts, HEB, Kroger, Amazon, Safeway, Albertsons, Vitacost, Walmart
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? They contain no egg/dairy/animal product ingredients, but aren’t certified vegan.
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: Great vanilla flavor in the creme. We loved these!

Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies are one of our go-to brands for pretzels, animal crackers, and cereal bars, but they also make a few varieties of gluten-free cookies! They’re a little less widely available, but they hold their own next to Oreo! We love the smooth creme center–plenty of vanilla flavor!

If you’re a fan of Oreo’s Double Stuf cookies, keep an eye out for Glutino’s Super Stuffed Cookies!

Goodie Girl Chocolate Creme gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies

Goodie Girl Chocolate Creme Cookies

  • COST: $4-6
  • WHERE TO BUY: Goodie Girl, Whole Foods, Amazon
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? YES! They recently re-vamped their recipe, so while the previous version did contain dairy, the new version is certified vegan. Yay!
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: Really fun brand! We tend to prefer their other sandwich cookies, but these are a great gluten-free oreo-type cookie!

Goodie Girl is one of my favorite gluten-free brands out there lately. Their branding is SO GOOD, and the cookies are delicious too. Their take on gf Oreo cookies contains no peanuts, eggs, dairy, or gluten, making it a school-safe option we love.

If you enjoy sandwich cookies, Goodie Girl also carries Birthday Cake & S’More flavors, We thought the Birthday Cake flavor didn’t *quite* come through for us, but really like the S’more ones! We’ve been very impressed at their other takes on famous cookies. Their gluten-free mint cookies taste SO much like Girl Scout Thin Mints!

Great Value gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies

Great Value Gluten-Free Chocolate Creme Sandwich Cookies

  • COST: $2.82
  • WHERE TO BUY: Walmart (Online or In-Store)
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: These are probably our least favorite. The texture and taste just don’t deliver as well as the other brands. That said, they work well for baking.

Clocking in at less then $3 a bag, this Walmart store brand gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookie is the most affordable of the bunch, and is carried by many stores nationwide—another plus! While we feel the flavor is a bit lacking for snacking, they work great in gluten-free Oreo pie crust!

Simple Truth gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies

Simple Truth Gluten-Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

  • COST: $3-4
  • WHERE TO BUY: Kroger stores (Fry’s, King Sooper’s, Ralph’s, Smith’s, etc.), Vitacost
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? No. This brand uses egg white powder in their recipe.
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: Great flavor & great budget-friendly choice!

Simple Truth, a Kroger store brand, is made without dyes or artificial colors and flavors. They’re also made in a peanut-free facility, so they’re school safe!

This budget-friendly gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookie was our favorite generic option after Trader Joe’s. Crisp creme-filled cookies with great flavor–it’s a solid choice!

Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Joe-Joe’s (Our Runner Up Fave)

  • COST: $3
  • WHERE TO BUY: Trader Joe’s
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? No. This brand uses egg in their recipe.
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: Our second favorite, just *barely* behind Oreo brand. Their new formulation hits all the right notes!

It was a happy day at our house when Trader Joe’s launched gluten-free Joe-Joe’s! Their take on classic chocolate sandwich cookies has been a fan favorite for years.

They JUST re-formulated the cookie as of June 2022, and the new formulation is even better than the last. It’s a tasty new spin on their Joe-Joe cookies. They have great crispy cookie texture with lots of chocolate flavor, and a smooth vanilla cream center. Yum!

Their original gluten-free Joe-Joe’s are yummy, but we especially love the holiday gluten-free Peppermint Joe-Joe’s! Keep an eye out for them in November-December.

Mi-Del Gluten-Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

  • COST: $3
  • WHERE TO BUY: Mi-Del, Amazon,
  • ARE THEY VEGAN? Mi-Del includes no animal/egg/dairy products in their recipe, but isn’t listed as certified gluten-free.
  • TASTE TEST NOTES: Pretty crumbly, without a ton of flavor, but they work well for crust.

This brand is one of the most difficult for me to find in stores. We find the texture a bit crumbly for snacking, but these gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies can be great for gluten-free oreo pie crust or other baking treats.

They offer these gluten-free sandwich cookies on chocolate and royal vanilla flavors, and both are are peanut free, so school-safe!
