If you’re gluten sensitive or intolerant, or worse, have celiac disease, the good news is that you no longer have to go without your favorite baked goods. If you like to bake, then you’re in luck because there are many options in gluten free flours today.
Gluten Free Flour is a Thing
You can find many of gluten free offerings in all grocery stores these days, as well as on Amazon. Many bakeries and pizza places now offer gluten free options on their menus. There’s even a favorite bakery in our city that we go to for gluten free birthday cakes.
Our favorite family birthday cakes available gluten free:
- Tiramisu (me)
- Carrot cake with cream cheese icing (husband)
- Red velvet cake with strawberry frosting (daughter)
We’ve baked the carrot cake and red velvet cakes at home using gluten free flours, but more than that, we use GF flours most days for breakfast bakes, pancakes and shortbreads.
Over 20% of Americans Eat Gluten Free
The majority of people choosing a gluten free diet are just gluten sensitive, and not because of celiac disease. Gluten free consumption has quintupled since 2009. The benefit to those who are gluten intolerant is that there are so many more choices in gluten free flours. Read more about our favorite GF flours and goodies here.
