53+ Delicious Gluten Free Foods for Going Gluten Free

Going gluten free can seem very challenging at first, and I remember struggling initially after my celiac diagnosis because there were so many gluten free brands to choose from and I had no idea which to try first. So as another post with the goal of making every month feel like Celiac Awareness Month, I thought I’d share a list of gluten free foods that breaks down all of my favorite brands and gluten free substitutes.

53+ Delicious Gluten Free Foods for Going Gluten Free


Whether you’re looking for gluten free substitutes for bread, gluten free alternative flour or delicious gluten free desserts, this round up has a product for you! If you’re just going gluten free, I hope this gives you some guidance during your first shopping trips. And if you’ve been gluten free for a while, hopefully this list will give you some ideas of new gluten free products to try!

Gluten Free Substitutes for Bread

  • Canyon Bakehouse - this is hands down my family’s favorite gluten free bread substitute. Their sandwich bread is amazing, as well as their bagels.
  • BFree Foods - if you’re looking for gluten free and vegan bread, this is my favorite brand. They also have gluten free pita bread and pizza crusts that are out of this world!
  • Schar - my family doesn’t love all of their products but their gluten free ciabatta rules are a common sight in our pantry.
  • My Bread Bakery - if you’re looking for gluten free and vegan bread to be delivered right to your door, this is a delicious online bakery that ships. They were kind enough to send me a few samples last year, and I fell in love with their flatbread, breadsticks and bread rolls.

Gluten Free Breakfast Substitutes

  • Buckwheat and/or Rice Flakes from Bob's Red Mill - if you need an alternative to oatmeal, I love mixing these buckwheat and rice flakes together into a gluten free porridge.
  • Birch Bender's Gluten Free Pancake Mix - this gluten free pancake mix can also be made into muffins, bread and cookies
  • Bisquick Pancake Mix - this is my family’s go-to gluten free pancake mix, especially with applesauce or mashed banana added to the batter.
  • Van’s Gluten Free Waffles - if you need a pre-made gluten free waffle, these taste amazing.
  • So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, Unsweetened Vanilla - for all those looking for a gluten free and vegan yogurt alternative, this is my favorite without a doubt. Creamy and subtly sweet without being sugary.
  • Sunbutter - this nut butter is actually nut free and made from sunflower seeds. They come in many flavors and are all delicious.
  • Julie’s Real Nut Butter - if you can tolerate almonds and cashews, these are some of my favorite nut butters ever. The flavors (like Cinnamon Vanilla and Cacao Espresso) are just too tasty. I am an ambassador of theirs and you can get 20% off using the code "collegeceliackcJR20."

Gluten Free Pasta Alternative Options

  • Jovial Foods - this gluten free pasta is rice-based and my family’s favorite in terms of texture and flavor.
  • Tinkyada - this is another rice-based pasta and a close second.
  • Banza - if you want extra vegan protein, this chickpea-based pasta is delicious and tender.

Gluten Free Meat Alternatives:

  • The Jackfruit Company’s BBQ Jackfruit - this is my favorite flavor of their pre-made jackfruit and it tastes just like pulled pork.
  • Beans, lentils and quinoa that are marked “gluten free” or don’t have any allergen warnings.
  • Foster Farms chicken nuggets - these are tender and taste just like regular chicken nuggets. Foster Farms also has gluten free corn dogs that taste too sweet for me but I know many others enjoy them!
  • Hilary’s Veggie Burgers - I’ve tried a lot of gluten free veggie burgers and these have the best flavor and stay crispy when cooked!

Gluten Free Alternative Flour

  • King Arthur Measure-for-Measure Gluten Free Flour
  • Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
  • Pereg Gourmet Banana Flour - this is a great alternative gluten free flour for baked goods and mug cakes
  • Anthony's Goods Coconut Flour - another gluten free alternative flour that I love using in cookies, mug cakes and sweet recipes. Coconut flour cannot be subbed for many other flours.
  • Self-ground or pre-made Quinoa Flour, Rice Flour or Buckwheat Flour - these are my go-to gluten free flours for many of my sweet and savory baking projects. You can grind the grains in a high-speed blender or a coffee grinder to make your own gluten free flour.

Gluten Free Comfort Foods

  • Real Good Foods Pizza - their gluten free pizza actually has cauliflower in the crust but you don’t even taste it!
  • Feel Good Foods Egg Rolls - for when you’re craving gluten free takeout and want a safe, certified gluten free option.
  • Blake’s All Natural Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie - this gluten free freezer meal is my mom’s favorite weekly treat. Just make sure you buy the gluten free version!
  • Mikey's Hot Pockets - these are hands down my 2020 addiction. My favorite flavors are ham and (dairy free) cheese, cheese pizza and pepperoni pizza. And since I'm a new ambassador for Mikey's, you can get 10% off with the code, "CASEY10."
