Nowadays, donuts are just as important in the American diet as coffee. In fact, the two of them go hand-in-hand. Why do you think Dunkin’ Donuts is as famous for coffee as it is for donuts? You can still sometimes have donuts as a snack or with your morning coffee that look and taste delicious.
Whether or not you eat these food items together or separately, I’m sure you will agree that donuts are a delicious, much-enjoyed treat. Of course, it is best for health’s sake to have them occasionally and in small amounts. Still, everyone enjoys having a donut or two now and then. This doesn’t change when you develop a gluten allergy.
Did you know that Dunkin’ Donuts now offers gluten-free donuts? This fast-food chain has developed special recipes for different varieties of gluten-free donuts. Also, each donut and/or pastry will be processed and packaged individually in order to avoid gluten cross-contamination. Your days of grabbing a treat at Dunkin’ Donuts before work have returned. Most, if not all, of the Dunkin’ Donuts locations will have these gluten-free donuts available at some point.
Of course, if you are not into Dunkin’ Donuts, there are other options for grabbing a quick, gluten-free donut … or two. Several well-known gluten-free brands now offer their own versions of gluten-free donuts.
Some of them you can eat straight from the package, while others you will have to warm in the oven or microwave before eating them. Still, this is a great way to obtain gluten-free donuts for breakfast or midday snack from the grocery store. I have listed the different kinds of pre made gluten-free donuts below.
