When Dr. Lucy Gibney discovered her child had severe food allergies, she got down to some serious medical research—in the kitchen. What began as a mother’s tasty recipe for her child has today developed into a delicious alternative for people with or without special dietary considerations.
Lucy's cookies are gluten free and made without milk, eggs, peanuts, or tree nuts such as almonds and hazelnuts, but you'd never know it—they’re scrumptious. Take a tour of Lucy's cookies to discover how it all started!
