About This Amazon Gluten-Free Blog Post
Amazon is a great place to find gluten-free products you often don't see in grocery stores. And if you are frustrated buying gluten-free products that end up disappointing you, not tasting good, or not working well in your recipes - I get it!
That's why having the right ones on your pantry shelf can make a big difference!
If you are planning to make a purchase from Amazon soon, these gluten-free products are some of my favorites that frequently appear in my pantry. They are the products I come back to again and again because they work well in recipes, taste really good, or make a perfect meal/snack!
And if you have the means to do so, perhaps grab an extra box or two to donate to those in need. If you can, consider going through your pantry a few times a year and make a donation, or grab a few extra boxes in your next Amazon order.
For more information about what to donate to your local food pantry, check out this great list from Feeding America.
Note: While there are hundreds of products available on Amazon that are gluten-free, these are the ones I always buy. Please also note that I have links here to as many brand stores as possible on Amazon, so you are buying directly from these companies and supporting them as much as possible, and not a third party.
The Best Gluten-Free Products on Amazon
My go-to (and arguably, the BEST) for gluten-free baking & pastry is always Cup4Cup, from Williams-Sonoma. However, it does contain dairy in the form of milk powder. For anyone who has difficulty digesting dairy, I recommend Bob's Red Mill 1:1 or King Arthur Measure For Measure (for quick breads/muffins) or King Arthur All Purpose GF Flour (for yeast-based recipes).
Are there other gluten-free flours out there? You bet! I definitely haven't tried them all. But when you find something that lets you create incredible croissants, empanadas, pies, naan, pierogi, scones, all with success? You keep buying it.
It's taken a long time to find the perfect gluten-free breadcrumb, but Aleia's has done it!
Aleia's breadcrumbs have excellent consistency and texture - and they look just like real pieces of bread. These breadcrumbs are lightly seasoned with Italian herbs and flavors that make them perfect for gluten-free stuffed peppers, or even these Italian baked meatballs. I've never been disappointed by Aleia's products and love supporting local brands (they are based in Connecticut).
Two of the best gluten-free pastas on the market today are Barilla and Jovial. While there are many others (I compare a ton of them in this gluten-free pasta comparison), these are the two I always buy.
Barilla is easy to find, it's cheap, and it works well in all types of pasta recipes - whether you are just cooking spaghetti, baking macaroni and cheese, lasagna, or having a cold pasta salad. It's a mixture of rice and corn.
Jovial pasta is made from 100% brown rice, and their methods come right from Italy. It's more expensive, but you get an excellent texture and taste - without any mushiness. Jovial is the pasta I splurge on when I want to make something taste the best of the best (I'm talking chef's kiss status.)
Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread
Gluten-free bread can be a hit or miss sometimes. How many loaves of gluten-free bread have you opened just to find holes in them? (I'm looking at you, Udi's.) Canyon is different - and according to my husband who doesn't have celiac, it tastes like regular bread!
Not only are Canyon's loaves of gluten-free bread a more normal size, but they rarely have holes, and toast up perfectly, and also can be eaten without freezing or refrigeration (as so many gluten-free breads often need). Canyon has become my go-to for sandwiches, toast with chia jam, and bread pudding!
*Note: I've also read from a few online forums that if you receive a package of Canyon that doesn't look as it's supposed to, they will send you a coupon so your next bread is free. That's great customer service right there!
The easiest, most delicious certified gluten-free cookie dough that bakes in only 15 minutes! They come in multiple flavors, but the classic chocolate chip is so good. I also love their dark chocolate cookies and use them to make gluten & dairy-free ice cream sandwiches. YUM.
The most buttery and tasty pretzels out there - and Snyder's are free of so many allergens including gluten and dairy!
When Snyder's came out with these pretzel sticks, and later, pretzel rods (OMG), I was overjoyed! I have to be careful when ordering these because I can finish an entire bag in one sitting. Snyder's pretzels are a great choice to make this gluten-free sweet & salty bark around the holidays.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chips
Enjoy Life makes allergen-friendly chocolate chips that are great for baking! These are amazing in gluten-free banana muffins, pumpkin bread, or even melted down in peanut butter cups. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are now the ones I always buy.
Gluten-Free Graham Crackers
Graham crackers are perfect for s'mores, but also great for snacking, and baking. If you're looking to make my gluten and dairy free key lime pie, you'll want some graham crackers for the base. Here are the two I use for baking purposes, or to dunk in a glass of milk when I have a craving. Both are certified gluten-free by different celiac organizations.
Do you miss Pringles? Oh my goodness, have I got a surprise for you, friend. The Good Crisp Company makes classic potato chips just like Pringles - but better, and certified gluten-free!
They make multiple flavors, and it's really easy to finish an entire canister in one sitting.
Delicious. Addictive. 10/10 would recommend!
