Certified Gluten-Free Mother’s Day Treats
We’re looking at you, moms! We believe every day is Mother’s Day, but it’s that time of year to officially treat yourselves. Whether you’re gluten-free or your kids are, here’s a list of some of our favorite certified gluten-free products ranging from decadent gluten-free desserts, to gluten-free teas, and even gluten-free beauty products. These items have all been tested by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) to ensure they contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten. While Nima has not been developed to test non-food substances, we suggest testing the edible items listed below with your sensor for additional gluten-free certainty as you indulge!
Calories don’t count today! Enjoy these moist gluten-free cakes, cupcakes, and fudge brownies without sacrificing taste and texture. Classics like yellow cake topped with vanilla frosting and chocolate cake piped with chocolate frosting are simple yet easy to decorate if you’re celebrating someone special. Each item comes individually wrapped to prevent cross-contamination (and possibly portion control). Look for Our Specialty products in your local grocery store or on Amazon.
If pastries are your preferred sweet, donut despair if you still haven’t found the perfect gluten-free pastry (see what we did there?). Katz Gluten Free donuts will satisfy your sweet tooth without you even realizing they’re gluten-free. Enjoy traditional varieties like powdered donut holes, custard- or jelly-filled, chocolate-frosted, or pumpkin spice donuts. Sold boxed and frozen, these gluten-free treats will stay fresh in your freezer for several weeks—providing they last that long!
Craving a homemade cookie but short on time? Try these wholesome and delicious gluten-free and allergy friendly cookies from Enjoy Life. Available in chocolate chip, double chocolate brownie, snickerdoodle, and gingerbread spice, these cookies are made from ancient grains and pure ingredients and are the ideal treat if you’re in the mood for a sweet treat without the hassle of dirtying dishes.
A little bit of chocolate goes a long way. These chocolate snacking thins start with 80% stone-ground dark chocolate and are then mixed with protein-loaded quinoa and topped with an array of crunchy almonds, coconut, and toasted pumpkins seeds. With only 6-7 grams of sugar per serving, this is a sweet snack you can feel good about indulging in, whether you’re on the run or treating yourself at home with a glass of red wine.
Even though it tastes mind-blowingly like ice cream, every pint of Coconut Bliss is dairy-free, soy-free, and certified gluten-free. Flavors are made from a coconut milk base combined with high-quality organic ingredients. The Ginger Cookie Caramel, Chocolate Walnut Brownie, and Chocolate Chip Cookie flavors contain gluten-free cookies that are baked in a certified gluten-free facility. If you’re looking for a portable and refreshing dessert for your Mother’s Day picnic, check out the Coconut Bliss Sandwiches, which feature gluten-free chocolate chip cookies with either Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss or Vanilla Coconut Bliss.
Gluten-free Pantry Items

Sometimes all you need to relax is a few hours of quiet, a good book, and a mug of tea. As the first and only tea brand in the U.S. to be certified gluten-free by the GFCO, The Republic of Tea proudly offers a wide selection of gluten-free teas safe for people with Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity. From herbal and green teas to oolong, black, and white, you’ll have quite the range of choices to help you unwind. If you’re using your Nima to test tea, remember not to fill the capsule with liquid past the teeth for an accurate reading!
Maybe pampering yourself looks like a break from your normal routine. Treat yourself to a night of no cooking and heat up one or more of Udi’s frozen pizzas for you and your family. Whether you live with meat lovers or vegetarians, everyone will be happy with Udi’s Three Cheese, Pepperoni, Margherita, and Supreme pizza options. Each pie features a savory, crisp gluten-free crust topped with premium ingredients. If cooking is how you relax, try Udi’s gluten-free pizza crusts and make pizza night easy by simply adding you and your kids’ favorite toppings before baking to perfection.
Gluten-free Body Products
Did you know gluten can be found in many beauty and body products? Even though gluten can’t be absorbed through the skin, some people with Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity can develop a skin rash if exposed to gluten. If a spa day sounds like your kind of pampering, check out this EO bubble bath and relax instead of react. Bursting with lavender essential oils and coconut-derived cleansers, this is just the aromatherapy you need to reboot your body and mind. All EO products are certified gluten-free, including their bath items, lotions, deodorants, hand sanitizers, and essential oils.
