Whether you’re gluten-intolerant or just giving a new diet a test run, anyone trying to avoid gluten knows it can be tough finding suitable substitutes.
We’re here to help! From bread to flour to pasta, here are some suggestions for alternatives to common wheat-based products. Get creative and try some of these today.
Baking without regular wheat flour can be tricky, but flour alternatives are plentiful and when used in the right proportions and treated with care, can taste great. Almond flour, coconut flour and rice flour are just a few options, and can be used with corn starch, potato starch and tapioca starch with great results.

If you’re dying for a sandwich and don’t know what to make it with, consider making a wrap instead with corn tortillas, or using lettuce leaves to pile your sandwich filling on. Rice cakes also work perfectly as a stand-in for crackers, pizza crust, and even bagels.
Pancake and oatmeal substitutes
We all love pancakes for a leisurely breakfast, and you can still have them by replacing wheat flour with cornmeal or corn flour, like in this recipe. How about oatmeal? If you must have your carbs in the morning, consider corn grits instead.
There’s nothing better than a bowl of piping hot pasta slathered in your favourite sauce – and you can still get your fix with rice noodles, or by creating zucchini or eggplant ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Spaghetti squash is also a great alternative – roasted and pulled apart with a fork, it looks exactly like noodles!
