The Marvelous Food Company is family owned by Juliette and Skip Parker. They have two young kids with food allergies. Their products were born out of a desire to make allergen free foods for their kids that tasted good, and that helped their picky toddler to eat the fruits, vegetables, and protein he needed. You can read their whole story here.
They produce two products: cookies and muffins. You can click on the links to view the ingredients. You will find that both products contain wholesome ingredients. A single serving of either product contains a full serving of fruits and vegetables.
Both products are free of major allergens. They have dedicated their mixing and baking facility to be completely free of: gluten, dairy, soy, all nuts, eggs, yeast, and corn.
Both products are moist and taste homemade. As you can see from the photo, the chocolate mini muffins are very small. They come in foil pouches with two muffins or cookies per pouch. Be sure to look for the notch along the bottom edge to tear open the pouches.
It is recommended that the products be refrigerated, and unlike many baked goods, these are actually better cold.
Both products have good flavor. They do contain garbanzo bean flour, which I am not a fan of. But with the flavorful ingredients in these products, no one noticed a bean flavor.
My kids found the look of the muffins and cookies to be unappealing. I agree, they don’t look particularly appetizing. However, I really enjoyed their taste and my youngest son, who is not gluten free, also enjoyed them. Once he got over the look of them and gave them a try, he really liked them and would ask if he could have some for snacks.
My oldest gluten free son tried them but did not care for the taste. He said they were bitter, but he’s not very good with flavors, and I think he didn’t care for the ginger that is in both products.
Both of these kids were shocked when I told them about the fruits and vegetables in the products. They didn’t think they tasted like vegetables at all.
While these cookies and muffins were created with kids in mind, I think they make great snacks for adults too.
