I discovered my love of bagels when I was 11 or 12 and living in New Jersey. Of course we lived close to New York City, known for the best bagels. I would choose a bagel over a muffin or other breakfast pastry any day. When I had to begin to follow the gluten-free diet in 2006, I almost felt like I lost a family member. Thankfully, gluten-free baked goods have come a long way and there are many delicious gluten-free bagel options on the market these days.
Trader Joe’s has always been one of my favorite places to shop for gluten-free groceries. They have a lot of options which include many different gluten-free specialty items. On my latest visit to Trader Joe’s, I picked up their name brand gluten-free bagels. They are priced very reasonably at $3.99/4-pack.
I lightly toasted the bagel and made a turkey and avocado sandwich the following day for lunch. These bagels have a great texture and flavor. I also tried them for breakfast on Saturday after my long run topped with peanut butter and jelly and they were equally as tasty that way.
Trader Joe’s has locations across the US, though not all products are available in all stores, so make sure to consult the gluten-free product list before getting your heart set on a certain product.
