Gluten-Free Gourmet- Feeding Your Sweet-tooth No Matter Your Diet

by Maggie Kelleher

Did you know that My Grandma's offers gluten-free dessert options? They may not be coffee cakes, but why should our gluten-free friends suffer watching us so enjoy our coffee cakes when they can't eat any? We believe in sharing the love and smiles that we are known for, and so why not include our gluten-free friends in on the fun?

What is gluten-free and why would My Grandma's start jumping on a dietary trend? Well, although gluten-free diets may be a trend for some members of the general population, for many people that restrictive diet can mean the difference between health and hospital. We know that you can help cheer up your gluten-free friends with a totally healthy and delicious treat!

First let's touch on the medical reasons people might go gluten-free. 

A gluten-free diet is known as the only treatment for a condition called Celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause an individual's immune system to attack their small intestine and lead to more than 200 symptoms.

Gluten-sensitivity and gluten-allergies are also known problems associated with gluten-consumption, although they are less scientifically understood. The existence of these is a bit of a "hot-topic," as some claim that it might not be the gluten in these foods that elicits a reaction, but it still stands that the foods that prove dangerous for those with Celiac disease can also cause symptoms in people with gluten allergies or sensitivity. Click on the image below for a great info-graphic about some of the biggest gluten-free myths!

What does this mean? That people with any of these conditions need a lot more self-control than I do when it comes to cake. We'd like to help them out and allow them to indulge without risk or regret?

That is why  My Grandma's is now offering gluten-free dessert options alongside our delicious and award-winning coffee cakes! 
From Cranberry Orange Biscotti to Fudge Chunk Brownie, to Congo Bars, Chocolate Chip Macaroons, and Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Cookies, we have the perfect dessert options for even the pickiest gluten-free sweet tooth!
