About This Blog Post
With the autumn air comes a desire for comfort foods, nostalgia, and flavors like apple and pumpkin. Here in New England, the fall season is one of the most beautiful times of year. And living in this region with celiac disease, it's the perfect time of year to enjoy delicious and cozy gluten-free fall products!
It's time to break out the boots, go apple picking, and get ready for autumn with these gluten-free fall products! (Or, in my case, stick a pumpkin on your head and make yourself a gluten-free s'mores.)

Fall Products At Supermarkets
Taste Republic Pumpkin Tortelloni & Butternut Squash Ravioli
The products I am MOST EXCITED ABOUT! I have a hard time finding these in my local grocery store, but have had some luck with the regular Taste Republic pastas at Shaw's and Target. Taste Republic makes excellent fresh pasta and for a limited time, they have seasonal fall products including pumpkin tortelloni and butternut squash ravioli. They are certified gluten-free, too! You can also purchase them directly from their website here, or use their "Find in Store" button on the website to see what supermarkets near you carry them!
NEW For 2023: Sweet Loren's Pumpkin Spice Cookies
I haven't been able to find these yet, but I hope to soon! Sweet Loren's cookies have been my go-to drop & bake cookie for years now. I've even used them in recipes like these gluten and dairy free ice cream sandwiches and black and white cookies! So I have no doubt these ones will also be fantastic. They are certified gluten-free but do contain oats, so please be advised if you cannot eat oats. Most of the time I have found Sweet Loren's cookies at Target or Stop and Shop.
Maine Pie Co Pies
I'm all for making my own pies from scratch sometimes (like this gluten-free apple pie which is a winner!) but sometimes you just want something easy and already done for you. And that's where an amazing certified gluten-free company like the Maine Pie Co comes in. Their pies can be purchased online but I usually find them in the freezer section of my local Whole Foods or Big Y supermarket here in New England. The pies come out AMAZING with the right crispy crust you hope for. They come in a variety of flavors but the fall ones are fantastic- apple and pumpkin being my favorites. They also have mini versions too. You can find out more about them here on their website!
Pamela's Gluten-Free Graham Crackers
I love these graham crackers. They have a great bite and crisp taste, the cinnamony flavor I'm longing for, and work perfectly in gluten-free s'mores. I usually can find these at my local Stop and Shop, but have also seen them available online. These are certified gluten-free but they do contain dairy. If dairy is a problem for you, you can always try the Kinnikinnick Graham Crackers, which are gluten and dairy free!
Chobani Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt
These are actually very good! Good pumpkin flavor and the pumpkin spice coziness. However, it wasn't something I was used to eating in yogurt form, so it kind of threw me off a bit. I'd prefer a muffin or baked good in pumpkin spice flavors instead of a yogurt. But if you love all things pumpkin spice, you'd probably like these! Gluten-free and super creamy. I love all of their fruit based yogurts too. We find these at our local Stop & Shop.
Simple Mills Almond Flour Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
I don't normally buy boxed mixes except for brownies (Because they always taste better than making from scratch!) but Simple Mills does a great job with their Almond flour mixes. Easy to prepare, easy to follow, and everything from them always tastes good. They are certified gluten-free and you can find their mixes definitely at Whole Foods, but I've also seen them at Stop & Shop, Publix, and Market Basket.
Bob's Red Mill Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
This is my go-to when traveling with celiac disease! These cups are super portable and all you need is water and a microwave (or just hot water). The apple and cinnamon flavor is my favorite and I love how they easily pack in your backpack or suitcase for traveling. You can buy them on Amazon or find them at your local grocery store (I find mine at Stop & Shop or Market Basket).
Downeast Cider House: Pumpkin & Cider Blends
Downeast Cider House is a cider company local to Boston. I share about visiting their factory for flights in my Boston gluten-free guide here! All of their ciders are gluten-free, and their pumpkin cider is a mixture of pumpkin and chai flavors, two quintessential fall tastes! It's my all time favorite gluten-free pumpkin cider. The other flavor that everyone likes (but I don't think is as good) is cider donut flavor. You can find these at most liquor stores in New England, or just check your Total Wine/liquor outlet by you to see if they carry it.
Trader Joe's Fall Products
Trader Joe's list of gluten-free food items only grows in the fall season! I've always been thankful that Trader Joe's can provide us with tasty snacks and pantry items without gluten. And their fall themed products are some of the BEST throughout the year, and for good reason!
If you are not sure about Trader Joe's, here's what their website states about their gluten-free products. Many of their items have a gluten-free label, and some do not, meaning it's up to you to check the ingredients.
Remember, TJ's doesn't ship or offer grocery delivery - you have to get their products in person, or have someone buy them and send them to you! So that means that during the fall season, when these products are available for a short time, make sure you get them while they are there!
Two tips to help with this:
- Call your local Trader Joe's to inquire about when the seasonal fall items will arrive. The staff is always super helpful and can check their computers to let you know when deliveries are expected. That way, if you are hoping to find a specific product, you can also check to see if it's on the shelves, or if they are currently out of stock.
- STOCK UP! So many of these products are in high demand and again, they are only here for a short time. So if you really like one of them, stock up on them in your pantry or freezer for the future!
Here are a few favorite Trader Joe's items just in time for fall!
NEW FOR 2023: Pumpkin Ravioli!
NEW for 2023: Finally a gluten-free pumpkin ravioli! OMG! THESE ARE DELICIOUS! I saw this on Instagram when a Confident Celiac Community member sent me a post about it, and found this entire listing and description on the Trader Joe's website. It's taken them 25 years to finally come out with a gluten-free pumpkin ravioli, but I'm so grateful they did!
Dylan and I both loved these and had them with some butter. Cook them for 2 minutes, not 3, to ensure best texture. Excellent flavor, taste, and they didn't fall apart! I can't wait to buy them again!
Pumpkin Pie Spice Bagels (THE BEST)
The most coveted and popular gluten-free fall treat, and the best pumpkin product: Trader Joe's gluten-free pumpkin spice bagels! THE QUEEN! When these bagels came on the scene a few years ago, those of us who follow a gluten-free diet lost our freaking minds!
These bagels. Are. The. Best. I've never had a more perfect pumpkin-flavored product - it's just the right amount of spice, with the hearty taste of pumpkin. Have them toasted, or just warm them in the microwave for five seconds, you'll most likely have two in one sitting. They are just that good - especially with cream cheese! (And Trader Joe's now has a lactose-free cream cheese too!)
Due to Trader Joe's popularity in the fall, and the fact that these bagels were such a hot item, they sell out quickly. Make sure you call ahead to your local TJ's to ask about what products are in stock. If you don't see them on the shelf, ask them to check in the back. And finally, go early, or in the off hours! Don't go at peak times!
Recipe Change: Some people have complained about the taste & texture of the bagels as they changed the recipe last year (2022). Personally, I just toast them and never have had an issue. I love them! Plus, I'd rather be happy there's a product that is made special for fall and gluten-free folks than pick it apart if it's not "perfect". It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be somethin'! (What Phil says of Phil Hates Gluten!) If you don't like them, don't buy them!
Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
I'm a homemade muffin gal so these aren't something I'd buy myself, but people LOVE them! Trader Joe's does a great job with their gluten-free muffins. They also have other flavors available year round that are beloved by the celiac community (especially the coffee cake muffins). They come in a pack of four and can be found in the bread aisle.
Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
While you COULD make delicious gluten-free pumpkin bread from scratch (like this recipe right here!), sometimes having a mix already made is easier. And that's where this pumpkin bread mix comes into play! All you need is water, oil, and eggs to make tasty pumpkin bread or 12 pumpkin muffins. Everything goes into one bowl, you mix together, and bake. Simple, easy, and delicious!
Pumpkin Pancake Mix
Pancakes are delicious year-round for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. But with the addition of pumpkin, you have an autumn-themed pancake mix that begs for maple syrup! All you need is an egg, butter, and water to make these flapjacks. I bought this mix a few years ago but never ended up trying it, but other people said they were tasty! I'll probably get it again this year and try them with cinnamon butter a la Luke's from Gilmore Girls.
Pumpkin butter, like apple butter, is more of a concentrated pumpkin spread. It's made with pumpkin, sugar, honey, lemon juice concentrate, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg. Serve it over ice cream, on toast, stuff it inside a gluten-free pastry, or use it for pumpkin soup. The possibilities are endless!
Maple & Sea Salt Kettle Corn
To be honest, I'm not a big kettle corn person. I personally think popcorn should be salty, not sweet! But I heard from others that said it was super tasty with the combination of maple and sea salt. This was a new fall product they launched in Fall of 2022, and it was really difficult to find. I had to check multiple Trader Joe's!
Cornbread is an excellent side for fall dishes, especially this veggie chili! And to have a pre-made mix that is super simple to throw together is an easy choice. I've never been disappointed by boxed mixes from Trader Joe's and plan on trying their gluten-free cornbread mix this fall. I haven't had it in many years, so not sure I remember what it tastes like! Others say it's good though!
Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark
This was also a new product Fall of 2022 which I tried. It was good, but not my favorite. The texture was a little off and I think I was hoping it would be different. I wouldn't necessarily buy this again, but the flavor was definitely their - maple, chocolate and pumpkin all together! It's labeled gluten-free.
Autumn-Themed Products On Amazon
Amazon has become a great source of gluten-free products to the celiac community. And with their partnership with Whole Foods, there's a lot available for us! These are a few fall favorites of gluten-free products you can find on Amazon.
Freedom Apple Cider Donuts
My friend Molly runs Freedom Gluten-Free donuts, and they are fantastic. I keep a box of one of their flavors in my freezer at all times! Gluten, dairy, and nut free as well as Kosher too! They make a delicious cake-like donut that doesn't disappoint and are worth every penny.
Katz Cinnamon Donuts
I'm a fan of the Katz gluten-free donuts, but haven't had their cinnamon ones! I have these listed here as an option to try for fall, as well as their pumpkin pie spice donuts. Personally, I love the chocolate ones so I'm excited to try these fall flavors. I haven't seen these in stores yet, which is why I'd probably purchase on Amazon.
Katz Pumpkin Pie Spice Donuts
Fall Themed Larabars
Larabars are a great choice for fall hikes, outings, and excursions. Sometimes you just need a granola bar in your bag to keep you going! Larabar features great flavors year-round, like pecan pie, cinnamon roll, and apple pie, but in the fall, they offer pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and snickerdoodle!
Tate's Ginger Zinger Cookies
If you've had Tate's gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, make sure you try their ginger ones too! This bakery from the Hamptons on Long Island has a dedicated gluten-free facility for their gluten-free cookie production. These cookies are crispy and sweet - with the chocolate chip being the most popular. However, their other famous flavor is a ginger zinger, a great flavor combo for fall!
Final Thoughts: Gluten-Free Fall Products
I am so excited for autumn and to get my hands on these gluten-free fall products! I'm most excited about trying the Taste Republic pasta, as I haven't been successful in finding it in stores in the past. I'll probably order it online, just to be safe!
With that pasta and the Trader Joe's gluten-free pumpkin bagels, I'll be living my best basic life in my flannel shirt and slippers while watching the Gilmore Girls on my couch. I can't wait!
