Finding great gluten-free, ready-made, sweet products – that tick all the boxes – can be very challenging. They often disappoint as there is usually a problem with the texture, taste, or aftertaste – not to mention potentially wasting money on something you don’t end up enjoying. It’s all very hit and miss usually unless you find a brand that earns your trust by continually releasing products that knock it out of the park. One of those brands for us is Kinnikinnick and today we are sharing our Kinnikinnick gluten-free review: the best of sweets.
Being able to enjoy gluten-free pancakes, cookies, or donuts, makes living gluten-free more “normal”. Having go-to snacks and mixes, that meet and exceed your expectations when compared to “traditional” snacks and mixes, makes life a little easier. Plus, they help remove the stigma gluten-free food has of being compromised or less than their gluten counterpart.
Kinnikinnick is a Canadian brand that has been making gluten-free products since 1991. Kinnikinnick makes finding quality products that meet your unique dietary needs, easy. All of their products are free from tree nuts, peanuts, soy and dairy. They also make it easy to find which other allergens may or may not be in their products. Their website clearly highlights which products contain yeast, sulphates, sugar, corn, eggs, mustard, and others.
I love a brand that not only makes great quality products; but is also transparent about what exactly, is in those products and understands how critical that information can be for their consumers. Kudos to Kinnikinnick for getting this oh so right.

Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Review: The Best of Sweet
Kinnikinnick Pancake and Waffle Mix: Score 49/50
This is an excellent gluten-free waffle and pancake mix in fact it won the very first Gluten-Free Foodee Seal of Approval. This pancake mix gives you that buttery, vanilla taste, that pancakes should have. I’ve tried them with and without maple syrup and also with blueberry syrup and it’s just as delicious, no matter how you prefer to top your pancakes. (click/tap to enlarge).
The best gluten-free microwave waffle I’ve tried, they toast perfectly. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They have great taste and don’t need syrup; but pair well with it. (click/tap to enlarge).
Kinnikinnick Cinnamon Sugar Donuts: Score 49/50
This is a a delicious cinnamon sugar donut that reminds me of being a kid at a fair. A soft and chewy cake donut that you can keep on hand in your freezer is great to have. (click/tap to enlarge).
Kinnikinnick Maple Glazed Donuts: Score 49/50
Another amazing cake donut, but this one has a thick maple glaze. The maple glaze is sweet, delicious, and not at all cloying. (click/tap to enlarge).
Packed with cinnamon flavour this cookie is delicious and satisfying. Unlike other sandwich cookies it doesn’t have any aftertaste and leaves you craving more. (click/tap to enlarge).
