Jack Francis is actually not a person, but an acronym for all the members of our family:
Josh – Husband, Dad, Owner/Sales
Avery – Daughter, Sister, Sixth Grader (next to Karissa)
Cadence – Daughter, Sister, 9th Grader (next to Josh)
Karissa – Wife, Mom, Owner/General Manager
We are all avid Seahawks Fans, Go HAWKS!! We also really love to spend time together camping, playing pickle ball, and watching our kids do whatever activity is currently in season.
Our story started with Josh being diagnosed with gluten intolerance and then with Cadence showing various symptoms that improved with the elimination of gluten and a dairy issue for Avery. Several years ago Josh and Karissa found the Paleo lifestyle and were amazed by how good we felt with eating that way, but we were disappointed by how expensive and tasteless any store bought Paleo treat tasted. In an ideal world of course we would make all our own food, but who lives there?! With a busy family schedule there isn’t usually time to bake in our house. Then Avery switched to a preschool that didn’t allow nuts, and Karissa noticed that most of the Paleo cookie recipes online had comments that asked “How could I make this without nuts?” and “How could I make this without eggs?” After awhile the idea for Jack’s Paleo Kitchen cookies was hatched, and after a lot (and I mean A LOT) of batches of cookies, we developed our recipe. We might be biased, but we think they are pretty great. We hope you think so too!
Is your facility allergy free?
Yes, with the exception of coconut, our facility is free from gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, tree nuts, and peanuts.
Isn’t palm shortening destroying the rain forest?
Not the brand we use! Our palm shortening is RSPO certified, which means it is responsibly and sustainably sourced. Palm oil is actually one of the most sustainable oils in the world when it is responsibly grown and processed.
What’s the deal with the grass-fed beef collagen?
Our cookies all contain grass-fed beef collagen. We use it as a binder in the absence of gluten, eggs, or nut flours. While not an option for a vegetarian, collagen has a lot of awesome health benefits. If you’re looking for a vegetarian option check out our three flavors of Nut-Free Trail Mix Bites our our plant-based vegan Brownie Bites.
