Following a gluten-free diet isn't always easy. Gluten-free food commonly costs more than food that doesn't have to accommodate special dietary needs, so if you buy it constantly, your credit card bills might be huge.
Now, you'll often hear that buying groceries in bulk is a great way to spend less on food. And the less you spend on food, the more money you can pump into your savings account.
Thankfully, Costco carries a number of gluten-free products you may want to scoop up. Here are six you should know about.
Sometimes, you just need a good cracker to snack on in the middle of the day. Well, it's Costco to the rescue with a bulk bag of these Milton's beauties. Dip them in hummus (which is commonly gluten free by nature) for a satisfying snack.
Baking can be a challenge when gluten isn't an option for you. Costco stocks Namaste gluten-free flour in bulk so you can whip up your own cakes, breads, and breakfast foods. And best of all, this flour blend is free of nuts, which is worth noting since many gluten-free flours aren't.
Sometimes, you need a snack that's quick, easy, and packed with protein. These miniature Kind bars fit the bill. They're gluten free, low in sodium, and don't have a ton of added sugar. The variety pack includes caramel almond and sea salt along with peanut butter dark chocolate.
If you have kids who need or want to eat gluten free, you might struggle to come up with quick, easy snacks to send to school or take on outings. These Popchips fit the bill, though. They're not only gluten free, but free of trans fat. Costco sells a variety pack that consists of sea salt flavor, barbecue, and sour cream and onion.
Protein bars can come in handy when you need a quick breakfast on the go or when you need to eat something before a workout. Costco's Kirkland brand protein bars come in cookie dough and chocolate brownie flavors and are certified gluten free.
Almond flour can be a great substitute for traditional flour, provided you don't have a nut allergy and there isn't one in your household. Costco's signature Kirkland brand tends to be more affordable than name brands, so this almond flour shouldn't break the bank.
These six items are only a few of many you can find at your local Costco warehouse club store or online (keep in mind that in-store prices will generally be more competitive than online ones, so if you're able to do your Costco shopping in person, you might reap more savings). If you follow a gluten-free diet, it pays to keep a running tab of the products Costco carries so you know what to stock up on.
