Your supermarket is probably crowded with gluten-free options these days. But many of them may lack the taste, texture, or nutritional value to be a staple in your household, right?
If you want to nosh on gluten-free snacks that actually taste good, you might need some help with your grocery list. That’s where Sema Dibooglu, the founder of Eat Without Gluten, comes in. She’s devoted her website to gluten-free living, so she knows her stuff when it comes to which gluten-free foods, treats, and snacks are best.
Below, she shares a few of her favorite gluten-free snacks that will leave your taste buds wanting more.
Cheddar cheese sandwich crackers
Similar to Ritz Bits sandwich crackers, these travel-sized gluten-free cheddar cheese crackers are great to stash in your bag when you’re on the go. I like to keep at least one pack with me in my backpack. They’re perfect for those times when I’m too rushed to stop by the dining hall on my way to class.
The word “bread” typically doesn’t have much of a place in a gluten-free diet. But the invention of these gluten-free flatbread crackers changes that. These are my go-to crackers for when I’m sick, nauseous, or just in the mood for a light snack. They have just the right amount of salt, and they’re tasty and crunchy, too. Try them with delicious spreadables like hummus, guacamole, or yogurt dip.
Cinnamon sugar donuts
I’ve been buying Kinnikinnick’s cinnamon sugar donuts for years. Cinnamon is my favorite flavor. They’re ideal when you need a pick-me-up any time of day and are craving something sweet.
If you’ve spent time in an aiport recently, you know gluten-free finds can be limited. That’s why when I’m traveling, I count on these sesame thins for portable snacking. You don’t want anything too greasy or heavy while sitting for a long time in a car or on an airplane. These fit the bill.
Keep your eyes on these, because anyone near you while you’re eating them may try to sneak them away. Many people have told me that they actually prefer the gluten-free version of Snyder’s of Hanover’s pretzel sticks.
Until about a year ago, I hadn’t eaten a soft pretzel in about a decade. I missed the taste terribly. That’s why I was thrilled to come across these ones. I thought it was too good to be true, but they taste just like how I remember them! I usually pair it with a mustard sauce, which complements it perfectly.
