Sometimes, the hardest part of a gluten-free diet is the snacks. Meals are planned out in advance, but it can be annoying to scour nutrition labels when you just want something quick to munch on during the day. That's why we've compiled a list of our favorite gluten-free snack ideas, products, and recipes—just be sure to always double-check the ingredient labels.
If you thought eating gluten free meant an end to sandwiches, think again. Udi's offers everything from bread to bagels, muffins to pizza, tortillas to granola—all gluten-free snacks. Try their Snicker Doodle Cookies for a sweet pick-me-up, or toast one of their English Muffins with your favorite spread.
No need to give up your favorite desserts. This cookie recipe calls for gluten-free flour, almonds, and coconut for a gluten-free spin on old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies. It also uses Egg Beaters® for a healthy and convenient alternative to eggs.
