Top 15 Gluten-Free and Vegan Foods 2018

When I first found out that I couldn’t eat wheat, dairy or eggs – I wondered what I would eat. Everyone recommended Veggie Straws and Skinny Pop, and while they are gluten-free, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite allergy-friendly, vegan and gluten-free products. If you have recently discovered a gluten-intolerance and have no idea what to eat, or have a gluten-free vegan family member staying with you over the holidays and have no idea what to have in the house for them, then this list is for you!

However, all of the products I am recommending in this post are my personal favorites that I frequently eat, make and enjoy.

Breakfast Foods

I am focusing on breakfast, because not only is it the most important meal of the day – it’s often the meal that gluten-free folks struggle with the most.

(1) Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Pancake and Waffle Mix, 18 oz

Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pancake mix that does not require eggs. I substitute non-dairy milk and the pancakes are fluffy and delicious!


(2) Van’s Gluten Free Waffles (Original, Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon)

I love Van’s Gluten-free Waffles. They are vegan and gluten-free! I often like to eat them with peanut butter and maple syrup (don’t knock it until you try it)! My kids eat them almost every day.


(3) Simple Mills Naturally Gluten-Free Almond Flour Muffin Mixes, Pumpkin Muffin, Chocolate Muffin & Cake and Banana Muffin, 3 Count

All of the Simple Mills Mixes are delicious. I use non-dairy milk, and instead of egg I substitute 1/2 banana per egg in the banana muffin mix, 1/4 cup pumpkin purée per egg in the Pumpkin Muffin Mix and 1/4 cup applesauce per egg in the Chocolate Muffin mix in order to make them vegan.


(4) Pamela’s Products Gluten Free Biscuit and Scone Mix, 13 Ounce

I never thought that I would eat biscuits again until I found this mix! I made the drop biscuits because I don’t have time to roll out the dough.


(5) Arrowhead Mills Organic Rice & Shine Hot Cereal

This cereal is available at my local grocery store Dierbergs here in St. Louis, Fresh Thyme and Whole Foods. It takes 3 minutes to make, and I serve it with a little fresh fruit, non-dairy milk, and maple syrup.


(6) Envirokidz Organic Gluten-Free Cereal, Peanut Butter Panda Puffs, 10.6 Ounce Box (Pack of 6) 

There hasn’t been an Envirokidz Gluten-Free Cereal that we haven’t liked. You really can’t go wrong with any of them, it just depends if you want your kids to have chocolate for breakfast! They are available at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods too.

(7) Bobo’s Oat Bars Stuff’d Bars

Everyone knows about Kind Bars and Larabar Bars (the Chocolate Coconut Chew and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip are my favorites). However, my local grocery store, Dierbergs gave out a sample of these bars and I fell in love! The Bobo’s Stuff’d Bars are my favorite – I’ve had the Chocolate Almond Nut Butter Filled, The Coconut Almond Butter, and Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter and all are to die for!!!. If you don’t want to spend the extra money for the stuff’d bars, the non-stuff’d are good as well; I particularly like the Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip Bar.


(8)Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats, 32-ounce

Overnight Oats are all the rage right now. I have been experimenting with some recipes too. Pick up some of these Gluten-Free Quick Oats and you’ll be grateful!


Gluten-Free Vegan Bread & Pasta

(9) Schar Deli-Style Bread Gluten Free — 8.5 oz(Case of 6)

This is the best gluten-free sandwich bread on the market. It doesn’t crumble and it tastes like a normal slice of bread!


(10) SCHAR | Baguettes- [Gluten Free] 12.3 Oz [1 Pack]

This is the only vegan and gluten-free baguette that I’ve found, and I won’t look any further unless I find one that can beat the price but still tastes as good. I often slice it, spread some vegan butter on it and make a toasted garlic cheese bread with it! I love it with pasta.

(11) Andean Dream Fusilli Quinoa Pasta Gluten Free (3×8 Oz)

This pasta is a no-fuss gluten-free pasta that doesn’t get mushy or stick together. It is delicious!


Gluten-free Crackers

I love these crackers crumbled into soups, eaten as a snack, dipped in peanut butter, hummus or avocado.

(12) Simple Mills – Almond Flour Grain Free, Gluten Free Crackers



(13) Ka-Me Gluten Free Rice Crackers, Sesame, 3.5 Ounce





(14) Mi-Del GF Pie Crust, Choc Snaps, 7.1 Oz

If you are in a hurry and don’t have time to make a crust from scratch, this chocolate cookie crumb pie crust will make the rush worthwhile!

(15) Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free and Soy-Free, Chocolate Chip, 6.3 Ounce (Pack of 6)

It is a hard choice between the regular gluten-free chocolate chip cookie and the chocolate chocolate-chip cookie. Both are delicious!
