I have been hoping for a while that someone would make a granola using uncontaminated gluten-free oats. You know, a “real” granola for gluten-free people! Well, someone finally has — Jake Bakes, a dedicated allergy friendly bakery in northern New Jersey, is using certified gluten-free oats to make three different flavors of granola.
They sent me a sample of the Farmer’s Market Granola, which I loved, and they also have Agave Granola and Chocolate Granola. All granolas are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut and peanut-free. They do contain soy in the vegan margarine. I really love this granola for snacking!
I also tried two kinds of cookies – Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin (no soy in this one). They have nteresting ingredients, including certified gluten-free oat flour and mesquite flour. I really liked the cookies — very sweet (might be too sweet for some people) and satisfying. They also have other flavors: Oatty Chocolate Chip, Chewy Gingerbread and Double Chocolate Ginger.
If you like homemade marshmallows, Jake Bakes offers four flavors of big, square-cut, soft marshmallows — vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and espresso. So much better than the store-bought kind! Need more sweet stuff? Try their Caramel Corn or Sweet Spiced Caramel Corn – I wasn’t crazy about the spices and cranberries in this one, but I liked the caramel corn part, so I would probably love the plain.
Any of the above options would make a nice treat for yourself or for someone you love this holiday season!
