Recommending

Here is an ongoing list of my favorite gluten-free restaurants and products!

(None of these recommendations are sponsored. Just my own discoveries/opinions!)

Favorite Products

Bob’s Red Mill Products- I love so many of their products! They certify gluten-free products are tested to less than 20ppm. I especially love their buckwheat groats, quinoa, oats, and coconut flour.

Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips & Brown Rice Crackers – These are both available at Costco and really do taste good!

Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour – I buy the 5lb bag directly from their website which is slightly cheaper than Amazon.

Jovial Foods Pasta – This is by far the best gluten-free pasta I have found. It tastes exactly the same are regular pasta and is made of only organic brown rice.

Kind Bars & Granola – I love the almond coconut bar and the peanut butter granola. So delicious!

King Arthur Flour Products & Recipes - They have amazing gluten-free recipes on their site. I also like their all-purpose flour. They never let me down!

Lara Bars – All of the flavors are gluten-free. My favorite is the coconut cream pie.

Sun Flour Mills Chocolate Cake Mix - The BEST gluten-free boxed chocolate cake mix I’ve tried.

Canyon Bake House Products - I’m not a huge fan of  pre-packaged gluten-free baked goods. If you buy them this is my favorite brand! I like their hamburger buns and bread.
