3 gluten-free treats to satisfy your sweet tooth
We all get by with a little help from somethin’ sweet. Am I right? After dinner, while you’re watching TV, as you enjoy a cup of coffee, or maybe just at 3pm when you’re starting to crash at work. Next time you’re looking for something sweet that’s gluten-free or free of multiple allergens, here are some of my suggestions.
Mina’s Purely Divine
These baking mixes truly are purely divine. Mina’s makes all-purpose baking mix, bread mix, and my favorite – chocolate cake mix. The chocolate cake mix is gluten-free and 80% of ingredients are organic. It’s moist, decadent, and works beautifully in any recipe that calls for chocolate cake mix. The company offers two sizes – 1 pound and 5 pound – on their website. And, Mina’s Purely Divine has recipes on their site that use their mixes, including several vegan recipes using the chocolate cake mix.
If you’re looking to satisfy a chocolate craving, this is the treat to choose.
You know what happens when a mother finds out her children have multiple food allergies? She makes wonderful things happen. The owner of Safely Delicious is a mother of four who decided her children should not have to go without delicious and safe treats. She began making her own snacks that looked and tasted similar to what their friends were eating. She made these snacks for years until her kids, family, and friends convinced her to share them with the world, and so … Safely Delicious was born. This company offers crunchy, sweet snacks that are similar to Muddy Buddies. They’re made with toasted cereal, powdered sugar, and other ingredients depending on the flavor (available in Classic, Dark Chocolate, Lemon, Mint, Mocha, Pumpkin, and Raspberry flavors). They are gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, soy-free, egg-free, and vegan. They have no cholesterol, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or preservatives. AND they are made in a dedicated allergen-free facility.
If you’re looking for something sweet and snacky for people with multiple allergies, this is the treat to choose.
Better Bites Bakery
Remember how I just told you that moms who find out their children have multiple food allergies can make wonderful things happen? Well, here’s another fine example! Better Bites Bakery was created by Leah Lopez, a mother who made delicious allergen-free treats for her son. Eventually she decided to share these treats with the public and created Better Bites Bakery. The company offers classic desserts that are free from the top 8 allergens (however, some products contain coconut, which is classified as a tree nut). Better Bites Bakery is a great go-to when you’re looking for an allergen-friendly celebration dessert. They have products like Amore Cake, a fancy-schmancy cake that could be used to celebrate a birthday; or the Hostess-style cupcakes, Lil’ Mo and Big Mo; or cake balls that are always a fun party hit.
If you’re looking to please every kid at the party, regardless of allergies, this is the treat to choose.
