Gluten-Free Baked Goods: Ethel’s Edibles

I was sharing Friday’s post about Michigan snacks on Twitter like a good little social media nerd, when I got an uber-delish proposition to try a new Michigan snack – Ethel’s Edibles.

As I mentioned in the post, I love supporting all things local, so of course I took owner Jill Bommarito up on her offer for me to sample some of her snacks, which just so happen to also be gluten-free.

She was heading up my way, so she hand delivered the treats. Now that’s service! I was thrilled to see a cute little package on my doorstep, complete with a hand written note (always a nice touch in my opinion).

I feel very fortunate to not have a need for a gluten-free diet. However, for many people, including those with wheat allergies and celiac disease, glutens can cause a lot of dietary stress.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, and helps to hold together the ingredients of breads, pasta and most baked goods. Those who are allergic to gluten, or who have a hard time digesting it, can’t eat many desserts, pizza or sandwiches.

If I suddenly learned I couldn’t eat cake or pizza, a little part of me might die.

Thankfully, places like Ethel’s Edibles are popping up across America to help those missing out on some of the best foods life has to offer.

A few tweaks to her grandma’s recipes (that’s where the name Ethel comes from…isn’t that cute?!) and Jill has been able to master the art of baking gluten-free, to the relief of some of her close family members who have suffered with celiac disease. And let me tell you, after tasting these treats, you won’t even know which ingredients are missing. They are THAT delish.

If you are on a strict gluten-free diet, Ethel’s Edibles will solve all your sweet tooth cravings. But even if your body allows for glutens, I highly suggest biting into some of Ethel’s Edibles for a tasty, unique treat.

Check them out and order online here.

Also, feel free to watch my video below as I taste test the company’s Pecan Dandys and Hot Blondies for the first time.

I was in no way compensated for this post, however, Ethel’s Edibles did provide me with the treats to sample as indicated above.

    Yum – they look and sound delicious! Thankfully, I also have no need for gluten-free products, but it’s wonderful that there are snacks available for those who do.

    I really want to try the pecan dandys now! And sadly, I do have the need for gluten free food :(

    Do they have a store somewhere or do I have to order online?

    They do look delish! I love the text about not chewing on screen – hilarious! I’ll have to look them up. We go over to GP once and a while, so it may be fun to stop in and get some treats for the boys.
