Y’all – I love Trader Joe’s. People are friendly, prices are good. And there’s something about the atmosphere. I go there weekly—more often sometimes—and grab some flowers and a cartful of goodies, including these gluten-free foods. With three of my six family members requiring gluten-free goods, I’m always on the hunt for solid food finds. Here’s a list of 10 of my favorite.

10 Best Gluten-Free Products at Trader Joe’s

    1. Plantain Chips
      Since going grain-free, I’ve had to find new snacks that fit my food sensitivities. It hasn’t been easy, but plantain chips have become a staple for me! They’ve got the same crunch as potato chips and are just $1.69. Real food note: these are cooked in sunflower oil, which is not optimal. Since the price is so good, I will opt for these on occasion; other times I’ll splurge for ones that are organic and cooked in coconut oil (and found elsewhere).roasted plantain chips from Trader Joe's
    2. Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
      Two pounds of 100% rolled oats for just $3.99? I’m in! Oh, and they are labeled gluten-free on the front, too. If you need any inspiration for how to use them, try these muffins or some overnight oats.Gluten-free rolled oats from Trader Joe's
    3. Organic Gluten-free Brown Rice Pasta
      With just two ingredients, organic brown rice + water, this is a pretty solid option! Be sure not to overcook and you won’t be disappointed with this pasta. Another great gluten-free Trader Joe’s find.Gluten-free Organic Brown Rice and Quinoa Fusilli Pasta from Trader Joe's
    4. 3-Seed Beet Crackers
      These actually come in two varieties, beet and sweet potato, but believe it or not, the beet version is the winner in our house! Ingredients include white corn, beet powder, black sesame seeds, flax seeds, paprika, chia seeds, onion powder, sea salt and corn or sunflower oil (oils which I know are not optimal). But for the most part, they line up and are a fun gluten-free snack that I allow my kids to enjoy.3 Seed Beet Crackers from Trader Joe's
    5. Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Instant Oatmeal
      Sure we should just make oatmeal ourselves and not create extra waste – but these little packets come in handy for traveling or other on-the-go situations. With ingredients to include whole grain oats, ground flaxseeds, chia seeds, quinoa, and amaranth, it packs a powerful punch and allows you to sweeten if and how you desire.Gluten-free Unsweetened Instant Oatmeal from Trader Joe's
    6. Gluten-free Black Bean Pasta
      Whole grain, full of fiber, and one ingredient: black bean powder. I’m in! Another solid gluten-free pasta choice that adds variety and a pop of protein. Yay!Gluten-free Organic Black Bean Rotini pasta from Trader Joe's
    7. Brown Rice Cakes
      I’m a huge fan of Lundberg Farms’ rice cakes, and even more fond of the price that Trader Joe’s offers them at:).Gluten-free Organic Brown Rice Cakes from Trader Joe's
    8. RXBARs
      RXBARS are made with a simple blend of dates, nuts, and egg whites in a variety of flavors. They are a simple and good option for a bar that’s higher in protein and come in a number of tasty options.Gluten-free RX Bars from Trader Joe's
    9. LARABARs
      You’ve heard us sing the praises of LARABARs in the past. Minimal ingredients that include nuts, dates, and seeds—sans added sugars—make them a win in our book. Find them at super prices at TJ’s.Gluten-free Larabars from Trader Joe's
    10. A TREAT: Coconut Sesame-Seed Clusters
      Bite-sized crunchy coconut clusters that have a pop of sweetness, thanks to (not “perfect”, but I’m okay with it) coconut sugar and tapioca syrup. Ingredients include organic dried coconut, organic coconut sugar, organic white sesame seeds, organic black sesame seeds, organic tapioca syrup, water, and Himalayan pink salt. I’m a personal fan since they are grain-free. FWIW, there are only 3 grams of added sugar per serving.Gluten-free Coconut Sesame Seed Clusters snack from Trader Joe's
