Betty Crocker gluten free chocolate chip cookie mix:
These are great and bonus, widely available and easy to find in any grocery store. This is a super easy way to have fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and, at $4.00 a box for 2 dozen cookies, they are cheaper than most already made gluten free cookies. These cookies are great for making chipwiches. Just soften some vanilla bean ice cream, put it in between 2 cookies, roll the edges of the cookie/ice cream sandwich in gluten free chocolate chips and voila, a chipwich! Substitute whatever frozen dessert and flavor you prefer (soy, almond, coconut) and roll in any type of candy chips you prefer – the options are endless.
Blue Diamond Nut-Thins
Can be purchased anywhere, but I get them on the health food aisle at Kroger – they are not in the regular cracker section!
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Dough Mix
Awesome – also found on the health food aisle at Kroger. This is an easy dough to make. Just remember to bake it before topping, and I season mine with garlic, shallot, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper – bake it – then add toppings and bake again. Yum!
Crunchmaster Multi-Seed and Multi-Grain Crackers
These are easily bought in bulk at Costco.
Joy brand cake cones and sugar cones for ice cream:
One of the things my daughter missed the most about being able to eat gluten was ice cream cones! Well, leave it up to her and her sharp eyes to find gluten free cones! Happy, happy day! They are available at Kroger and are on the end cap for the frozen desserts. I have personally tried the sugar cones and honestly, I can’t tell the difference. Awesome!
This sandwich bread is available in the “healthy” freezer section at Kroger grocery stores. It is less expensive than other gluten free brands and, bonus, has a better texture and taste. Last night, we celebrated the 4th with cheeseburgers and had Kinnickinnick brand hamburger buns. They were awesome! A new find, my daughter and I BOTH had to get up and check the package again to make sure they were truly a gluten free version! Awesome and on sale for $3.50 for a package of 4. Pricy still, but this is the gluten free reality and $3.50 is better than usual.
This product is sold at Whole Foods and is one drink that I can give my daughter with confidence. It is gluten free, low in sugar, and made from fruit. She usually prefers water, but when she wants something a little different, I am happy to serve her these products. Her favorite is the Tropical Punch flavor, but she also likes mixing the tropical punch with the grape for a fancy drink!

Tate’s gluten free chocolate chip cookies:
These are crispy, satisfying and readily available at Trader Joe’s, Atlantis Health Foods, and Kroger. They are great served with vanilla ice cream or tart frozen yogurt.
Trader Joe’s gluten free Jo Jo’s:
Jo Jo’s are the Trader Joe’s version of an Oreo. They are tasty cookies and now they have a gluten free version. My 8 year old daughter is delighted.
