My Favorite Gluten Free Products

May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, so I decided to write about my favorite gluten free products. In the beginning, in 2007 when I started eating gluten free, I had never even heard about gluten free. It took me a long time to figure out which products were worth buying a second time. Since then, I have found several things that are good, and that I buy over and over again. So, here is a list of my favorites, and what I use them for.

Udi’s Gluten Free White Sandwich Bread

favorite gluten free product

I think this bread is the best tasting gluten free bread on the market. I use it for toast for breakfast; for sandwiches; in casseroles; and in my southern style corn bread dressing. You can get it on Amazon.con in a case of 8, but sometimes you can find it in grocery stores. If your local supermarket doesn’t carry it, ask them to. Also try Udi’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Soooo good for French toast. 

Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix

Baking-Pancake-Mix-ThumbMy husband who is not gluten free, loves pancakes made from this mix. It is the only one he likes. I also use it to make biscuits that taste a lot like the ones you get at Red Lobster; for sausage balls for parties; cobblers; and for making muffins. My favorite gluten free product.

Pamela’s Cornbread & Muffin Mix

favorite gluten free productThis gluten free cornbread mix is the only gluten free cornbread mix that I have found that does not have sugar added to it. No southern cook puts sugar in her cornbread, at least none that I know of. If you want true southern cornbread, this is the one for you! I have also used this mix for breading catfish and okra before frying, and it is the main ingredient in my Gluten Free Southern Style Cornbread Dressing. My non gluten free husband loves this cornbread too. He asks for it by name. It is really really good. I buy in a 6 pack. 

Chocolate Chex

This cereal is my favorite snack. I eat it right out of the box, no milk. I also use it to make Chex Treats, much like Rice Krispie Treats. Sometimes I add crushed peppermint candy to it, to make Chocolate Peppermint Crunch. I also make trail mix with it. Actually, all of the Chex Cereals except for Wheat Chex are gluten free now. 

Tom Sawyer Gluten Free Flour

Tom Sawyer All Purpose Gluten Free Flour is a flour mix that can be used cup for cup as a replacement for regular wheat flour. It is a blended flour of rice and tapioca flours, xanthan gum, and kosher approved unflavored gelatin. The flour is prepared in a dedicated gluten-free environment, using gluten-free mixing and packing equipment and is then tested for gluten contamination. It makes a pretty good gravy. I use it for breading things like chicken, liver, and pork chops for frying. If you like onion rings and fried cauliflower, it makes a terrific beer batter using your favorite gluten free beer.

Cookies

Cookies are a whole separate category. There are so many good gluten free cookies out there, that it is really had to choose just one. However, here are some I have tried that are really good, and worth buying a second time. These are my favorites:

Udi’s Snicker Doodles (soft and chewy)

Udi’s Chocolate Chip  (soft and chewy)

Lucy’s Sugar Cookies  (crunchy)

Lucy’s Oatmeal (crunchy)

Lucy’s Gingersnaps (crunchy, and makes a great cookie crumb pie crust)

Glutino Lemon Wafers (wafer cookie)

Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme (Oreo type cookie)

Katz Colored Sprinkle Cookies

Miscellaneous

These products are just good. They don’t really have a category:

Comstock Raspberry Pie Filling, makes a great cobbler. It comes in other flavors too.

Fischer & Weiser Raspberry Chipotle Sauce. I marinate pork roast with this yummy sauce.

New Grist Beer. It’s hard to find it in the southeast, but it is a pretty good gluten free beer.

Goodbye Gluten Flour Tortillas. I found these at a grocery store about 45 miles away from my home, and the next time I went back, I bought all they had on the shelf. They freeze well, and make terrific wraps, breakfast burritos, and quesadillas. I have even thought of making chocolate tacos with them for dessert.

Rudi’s Gluten Free Flour Tortillas. These are just as good as the Goodbye Gluten tortillas, but they are smaller in size. 

Kinnikinnick Crumbs

Gluten Free Graham Cracker Crumbs.

favorite gluten free product

This product is worth it’s weight in gold if you want to make pies with a graham cracker crust. They taste just like regular graham cracker crumbs to me. No one will ever know it is gluten free if you don’t tell them. I use this to make my Banana Split Cake. Yum! 

Cedarlane Frozen Dinners. I received some of these to do a review a couple of years ago, and now I buy them all the time. My husband likes them too, and he is not a gluten free eater. His favorite is the Enchilda Pie.

If I think of other things I’ll update this list. What is YOUR favorite gluten free product?

  1. This gluten-free flour is the best I’ve ever used, and I’ve used a lot of them over the years. The texture is outstanding — I think the secret must be in the milling that KAF arranges — the grind is very very fine. I agree with many that it would be helpful to have the option of a bigger quantity.

  2. Loved this post! Our family just went gluten free for my two year old son. I will be purchasing these products! Thanks!

  3. Love the GF choices!!! I have Celiac and am always looking for suggestions :)!

  4. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this blog..I’m a huge foodie, and cake decorator, and have literally just found out I’m a coeliac -t’riffic!! Flour is the thing I’m most worried about..and oxo..how am I going to make gravy? It’s is really not good..I don’t want to have to limit my ingredients so shall now embark on a lifelong mission to find good quality GF ing’s…really hoping I can get Tom Sawyer flour here in the UK..again, thank you, from a new fan 🙂 x

    My daughter has gone gluten free and started having less gastrointestinal problems. I buy the Udis products for her. I was told by a licensed dietician that many people of Irish descent have an intolerance to gluten.

  10. Sandy Cain says:

    Thank you for this post. My old mom has so many GI issues (and other health concerns), that I want to slowly start switching her over to gluten-free, but wasn’t sure where to begin, even with articles I read. The Chocolate Chex will be my first one – she loves cold cereal in the morning and this is just the one to begin with. (((HUGS))) and THANK YOU!!!

  11. Thanks for sharing your list.

    Love this post. I made the decision to go Gluten Free almost a year ago and have struggled to find a few products that taste edible. Bread was my biggest challenge. I’m using a rice type right now but will definitely try Udis. Rice Chex are my staple breakfast food. I love them.
