Our household is about 90% gluten-free. I eliminated wheat products from my diet about 2 years ago. My family eats the occasional wheat product by all of our family meals are prepared gluten-free. Going gluten-free isn’t easy but thanks to an array of delicious gluten-free products on the market it isn’t hard either.
Below is a list of some of our favorite gluten-free products. Also, I’m adding on where I’ve found them at the best price. I’m only listing products that aren’t “normally” gluten-free. You won’t see my favorite gluten free yogurt on here because… yogurt doesn’t normally have wheat products in it… got it? Good!
Trader Joe’s Wheat Free Toaster Waffles $1.99 (in store) – These taste great and are a quick an easy option.
Rudi’s GF Cinnamon Raisin bread $4.90 (Azure Standard) – This bread is great toasted
Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats $21 for 4 32oz bags (Amazon) – Nothing too special here, just good oatmeal for breakfast or other baking/cooking
Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix $40 for 3 4lb bags (Amazon) – Hands down our favorite pancake mix. I haven’t tried the new Bisquick GF mix but I’m guessing it’s not bad! I also use this flour for any GF cookies or breads I make. I use the same amount or a tad more flour and leave out any baking soda or powder because there is already some in there. There are great recipes on the bag too…
Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas $2.15 for 12 (Azure Standard) – These make great thin crust pizzas and quesadilla. I’ve also brushed them with a little olive oil and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for a dessert treat. They don’t do the best rolled up for a wrap or burritos.
Crunchmaster multi-grain crackers $7.48 for 2 bags, over 270 crackers (Sam’s Club) – these are the best, reasonably priced GF crackers I’ve found. They are tasty and can hold their ground with chicken salad, guacamole, or just sliced cheese.
Trader Joe’s GF Mac & Cheese – $1.99/box (in store) – This stuff is soo good! It’s worth the price for a easy alternative now and then. My whole family likes it. The one drawback is it doesn’t make enough!!
Brown rice pasta – I will use 2 brands, Trader Joe’s or Tinkyada. Trader Joe’s is cheaper but Tinkyada is definitely better quality. Also, Tinkyada has a lasagna noodle.
Against the Grain baguette $5+ (Wheatsfield Coop. if anyone has seen these anywhere else, let me know!) – you get 2 good sized baguette. They are great for French dips and other hot sandwiches. You can use the bread for making stuffing too. Good stuff!
Chebe Bread Mixes $2.75 (Fareway) – they have several different bread mixes. I used the multi-purpose (yellow bag) for breadsticks and they are amazing! I’ve heard they make decent cinnamon rolls too… worth a try!
Whole Foods Pizza Crust $7.99?? for 2 crusts (in store) – I haven’t found a pizza crust mix I really care for and these pre made crusts are the best thick crusts I’ve had. They are pricey but if you’re craving thick crust pizza give them a shot.
Betty Crocker Cake and Brownie Mixes $3.75 or so (Fareway) – These are definitely pricey but to me they are the most cakelike when it comes to gluten free. I’ve had some other brands but if I really want to feel like I’m eating real cake… I go for one of these.
I know there are more I’m forgetting but this should give you hopefully a couple new things to try! PLEASE let me know of any great GF products you know of or if you’d like me to post on a recipe you’d like to see done GF!
