Costco carries gluten-free cookie mix! Amazing Costco gluten-free find.
I’ve been trying and reviewing different gluten-free foods from Costco. My favorite gluten-free products I’ve tried lately are the Brazi Bites, the Little Northern Bakehouse Seeds & Grains bread and the Molinaro’s Cauliflower Pizza Kit. When I saw this Costco Joy Life Foods Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix I knew I had to review it!
Location in Store
I found this product in the aisle with the baking products. The item number is 1508671.
The gluten-free cookies take a little bit of effort to bake but they turn out wonderful! The flours are sorghum flour, sweet rice flour, potato starch, brown rice flour, oat flour, tapioca flour and quinoa flour! Sean couldn’t even tell that these were gluten-free when I gave him a freshly-baked cookie. If someone gave me one of these cookies and didn’t tell me they were gluten-free I wouldn’t guess they were any different than a cookie made with all-purpose flour.
The cookies turned out soft and chewy in the center and golden brown and crispy on the outside. They’re loaded which chocolate chunks that are absolutely delicious and are nice and melty when you eat these right after baking them. I noticed the slightest hint of coconut flavor which makes sense because there’s coconut butter in the cookies. There’s also the smallest bit of a chalky finish after eating a cookie.
I was shocked at how yummy the cookies tasted using the Costco Joy Life Foods Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk cookie mix.
I paid $12.99 Canadian for the 1.5 kilogram box of cookie mix.
The box comes with three 500 gram bags of mix and states that makes 72 cookies (24 cookies per bag). I got 17 cookies out of one bag of mix.
These were simple to bake. I creamed 5 tbsp of softened butter with a large egg in my Kitchenaid Mixer and then added the mix to make my cookie dough. I used a cookie scoop to make my cookies balls and baked them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
I baked my cookies for exactly 10 minutes and 30 seconds at 375 degrees Fahrenheit and they turned out great. I like my cookies on the softer side but not raw and I also enjoy a little crispness on the edges.
One prepared 26 gram cookie is 110 calories, five grams of fat, 16 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of sugar, two grams of protein, 65 mg of sodium and zero grams of fibre.
These aren’t at all healthy for you but they’re terribly bad for a cookie either! They are gluten-free which I think is amazing because they don’t taste it! The first ingredient is chocolate (tons of chocolate in these). In case your curious, sorghum is an ancient cereal grain.
Taste: 8/10 (for a regular cookie) 10/10 (for a gluten-free cookie)
Give it a try!
I’m super impressed by this Costco Joy Life Foods Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Premium Cookie Mix. It’s one of the best gluten-free products at Costco I’ve tried and I definitely recommend this mix for any gluten-free readers or individuals with kids following a gluten-free diet!

I too bought a box of this at costco and I decided to try making these with my grand-daughter today, It has an expiry date of Jan 19, 2022 and it is terrible, everyone noticed a chemical smell while baking and a terrible taste. I asked my daughter in law about them and she had the same experience. they threw the box out as it was disgusting. Never mentioned it to me before I tried it and I am finding the same thing.
My box with expiry of Jan 2022 also rancid. There should definitely be a recall on this item! I’ll be reporting this to the customer service line at Joy Life Foods tomorrow. Can someone tell me if Costco accepted refunds on this item even if one bag was cooked (and tossed)? Thank you.

Same expiry date as mentioned above. Taste is weird, makes my tongue feel weird. I did smell the mix before I put it in the bowl. It smelled more strongly than I expected. I guess I know what rancid flour smells like now ….
The cookies I just baked up have a bizarre, sweet, chemical-like after-taste. Almost like the taste you get with an artificial sweetener. I couldn’t even eat half a cookie before deciding they needed to go back.
The package I bought at Costco were rancid too. Expiry date of Jan 2022.
We had two boxes and taking back to Costco and phoned customer service to report our concern
Cookies tasted like soap and chemical tasting
We have bought before and they did not taste like they do now
Something is wrong with this lot in May Something is wrong and the company needs to do a recall on this lot
Company needs to correct as it was a very good product prior and it would be a shame not to fix the
We bought a number of boxes when on sale. So far they have all been fine. Eat at least one cookie per day. We mix in a bit of banana for a change.
Banana is a great idea! Thanks for that tip!
We are in the same situation as above. We can’t believe how terrible they tasted! Sooo disappointed, and have thrown out the other 2 bags. Called the company’s number on the package to complain but guessing we will never get a response.
Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that!
I wish that I could have tried it. It was on sale for 5.97 with a best before date in January 2022 however it was rancid when I opened the first package. Can’t imagine the other two would be better. Very disappointed.
Sorry to hear that! That’s definitely frustrating.
You got 17 cookies. Box, you wrote, says it makes 72. Five bags of mix. Cannot do it. Sure it isn’t 3 bags of mix, each making 24 cookies? That adds up.
We loved these cookies and hope they will be brought back to Costco’s line up very soon!!! They’re a great alternative for gluten-free diets.
Yes there are only 3 bags for 72 cookies.
