A Few Favorite Gluten Free Products

I’ve been meaning to share some of my favorite gluten free products, but alas, life has been quite busy.

What I’ve included below is a snapshot and is by no means comprehensive!

First off, I’ve been raving to my friends and family about Brazi Bites, so it’s time I rave to all of you as well.

Brazi Bites Baked

I’ve made pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese buns) from scratch before and while it was a great success, it seemed like a lot of work. The great thing about Brazi Bites’ frozen pao de quiejos is that they are frozen! You can pull as many as you like out of the freezer and pop them into the oven for 20 minutes. When you make them from scratch, you have to bake the whole batch, so I very much appreciate how convenient and easy Brazi Bites are to enjoy. The disadvantage is that you might end up eating a few too many!

Next is Ancient Harvest Quinoa pasta. This pasta has been the most successful and really tastes like normal gluten-ful pasta. It doesn’t stick and get as gummy as the other dry gluten free pastas (Trader Joe’s GF pasta is the worst). They have many different varieties and just last week I made Thai peanut noodles with the linguine noodles!

I’m a pretty big fan of cookies and I’m happy that there are several great GF cookie options. Perhaps too many … I should eat less junk. Some of my favorites:

Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Cream

Tweasonale and glutino

Trader Joe’s GF Joe Joe’s

TJ's joe-joe's

Glutino GF lemon wafers

Glutino lemon wafers

and WOW Baking Co.’s Oregon Oatmeal Cookies (the Snickerdoodle one is great too!). As you can see, the WOW cookie bag is empty. I wonder why.

On to beverages. Good GF beer seems to be the holy grail, and I have never been a beer connoisseur, so you’ll have to take this with a grain of salt!

My favorites are DogFish Head Tweason’ale

 New Planet Tread Lightly

 and RedBridge.

As for ciders, my list keeps growing and growing! After having way too much fun at the Seattle Cider Summit, I discovered awesome new ciders like Reverend Nat’s Hallelujah Hopricot, Alpenfire, Finn River Habanero Cider, Carlton Asian Pear, Sea Cider Bramble Berry, and the list goes on. And on. The sweetest (not my favorite aspect of ciders) and most accessible, is Spire Dark & Dry.

As I look at my list it seems quite unhealthy. But I’ll keep in mind that these are all packaged items, so I’ll be sure to take it easy!
