For all of those that know me well you know that desserts have always held a very special place in me heart. I didn’t get the nickname “Little Debbie” for nothing! Finding a great tasting packaged gluten-free dessert is like winning the lottery. Impossible! I have tried countless gluten-free desserts and I am always incredibly disappointed. I still remember what a “real” dessert tastes like so there is no fooling this gluten-free gal! Last weekend my family and I took a trip to Fort Lauderdale. While making a pit stop at Whole Foods I came across a brand of gluten-free and vegan desserts called Tia’s. Once again I was enticed by the pretty packaging and decided to give it a try (with very low expectations). My life is forever changed! For the first time since going gluten-free, I enjoyed a dessert that I didn’t have to make myself. I bought every type of dessert they offered and 4 of us chowed down on all of them (see picture above)! My personal favorite were the oatmeal raisin cookies and the banana pudding. Even if you are not gluten-free or vegan, you will love these desserts. The great thing is that Tia’s desserts are healthy and made with only pure ingredients that you can understand. Instead of using wheat in their products, they use almond and coconut flour. They are 150 calories each so they’re not too bad if you’re on a diet, either. They are very sweet which was interesting to me since they contain no sugar. The agave nectar really worked well to sweeten these cookies. Since everything is made with quality ingredients and are healthier than traditional desserts these are ideal for kids with a sweet tooth. You can purchase Tia’s Bakery products at your favorite natural grocery stores, such as Whole Foods Market and if your neighborhood store doesn’t offer them then you can email Tia’s Bakery and they will make sure you get it!
Little Debbie’s Tip: Run, don’t walk to your nearest Whole Foods. I guarantee you and your family will not be disappointed!
