ALDI Gluten-Free Products and Chocolate Almond Cookie Balls at GlutenFreeHomemaker.com

I’ve mentioned to you before that I shop at ALDI and enjoy their low prices on a variety of foods.

I also mentioned last year that ALDI now carries a line of gluten-free products which my gluten-free family members enjoy. Quality and taste wise, almost all of them are as good as or better than any other gluten-free brand we have tried. AND, they cost less!

Recently, the ALDI-exclusive liveGfree Gluten Free Pizza was voted the 2015 Product of the Year winner of the Convenience Meal Category. They carry both a cheese pizza and a pepperoni pizza in the frozen foods section. The lasagna, ravioli, chicken nuggets, and stuffed sandwiches are also found in the freezer section.

I recently did some price comparison with my local grocery store that has a wide selection of gluten-free products. I compared some of the liveGfree products to other gluten-free products that are very similar in nature (some are almost identical) and have the same size packaging. Here are some of the results:

ProductliveGfree PriceOther Brand Price
Soft Baked Cookies$2.49$3.79
Cake or Cookie Mix$2.99$4.59
Bread$3.99$5.29
Granola$3.49$4.99
Crackers$1.49$2.99
Pretzels$2.49$4.29
Pizza$4.99$7.99


I like that many of their naturally gluten-free foods are labeled as such. It’s reassuring to see a gluten-free label on foods, but I always read the ingredients to be double sure. They also note lactose-free foods. Here’s an example on a can of organic diced tomatoes.

In addition, many of their SimplyNature products (but not all) are labeled USDA Organic, such as the SimplyNature pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, and tortilla chips. I try to buy organic corn products because being USDA organic means that it is non-GMO. Also pictured below are fruit and nut bars that are not part of their liveGfree line, but are gluten free.

One liveGfree product that my family especially enjoys is the Snickerdoodle Soft Baked Cookies. Even my gluten eating family members love these cookies! They also carry  Chocolate Brownie Soft Baked Cookies which I have used in combination with a couple of other naturally gluten-free ALDI products for a simple recipe that my husband in particular gives a thumbs up to. Here are the ALDI ingredients I used in the recipe:

These balls are super easy to make and they can help you stretch as well as “dress up” a package of cookies.

Gluten_Free_Wednesdays_thumbnail_2015

Happy March! As I sit here listening to the sound of sleet falling outside, I’m glad to know that spring is almost here. But with more snow on the way Thursday, I’m content for now to stay in my warm house and do some gluten-free baking that I won’t want to do once hot weather […]

It’s been another cold week here with more snow. The other night I remembered my Winter Vegetable Soup, and it was a perfect side dish on a cold evening. We had some guests over, and they really enjoyed it, especially one friend who is dairy free. Blending the vegetables together gives the soup a natural […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo)

Chocolate_Chip_Cookies_Paleo_4.jpg

I have come to love paleo or grain free cookies. They are simple to bake, have a nice texture, and aren’t disgustingly sweet. I suppose I tend to make them a little less sweet (according to one of my kids) than other cookies, but they are plenty sweet for my tastes. And my husband, who […]
