Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite grocery stores and with good reason. Their prices are reasonable, they have their finger on the latest food trends, and they always carry a unique selection of crave-worthy foods, many of which can’t be found elsewhere.
In classic Trader Joe’s fashion, many of the grocer’s products are gluten-free, kosher, and meet a variety of dietary needs and preferences. And the grocer goes all in on pumpkin. More on that next.
Trader Joe’s inclusivity of dietary restrictions is unmatched and much appreciated. While celiac disease only affects three million people in the U.S., 25% of all Americans say they consume gluten-free food. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley.
While Trader Joe’s products aren’t certified gluten-free, the grocer says any product labeled gluten-free has been validated to meet the FDA’s gluten-free guidelines and contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.
Trader Joe’s support and inclusivity of the gluten-free community is one of the many reasons the no-frills grocer has so many loyal fans.
Trader Joe’s Is Wild for Pumpkin
Every fall, starting in September, Trader Joe’s delivers an influx of pumpkin products, allowing its customers to indulge in all the cozy flavors of fall.
And Trader Joe’s never lets its gluten-challenged customers down; instead, the quirky grocer delivers a wide range of pumpkin-inspired goodies just for the gluten-free community. And it doesn’t jack up the price or make these items impossible to find.
Below are the 10 most irresistible gluten-free pumpkin products at Trader Joe’s this year (2023). Do you agree? What am I missing? Please sound off in the comments to share and help others!
(1) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Baking Mix
Trader Joe’s makes it easy to make homemade pumpkin bread in minutes using its Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Baking Mix. Add an egg, oil, and water, mix the batter, and bake it in your oven.
This bread always tastes moist and airy; sometimes, I add chocolate chips to make it even sweeter. Either way, most Trader Joe’s enthusiasts will agree that the pumpkin bread mix is a must-buy product this time of year.
(2) Pumpkin Ice Cream
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Ice Cream isn’t labeled gluten-free but doesn’t appear to contain any gluten ingredients. I tested it with my Nima Sensor, and Nima didn’t find any hidden gluten.
The ice cream is so creamy and good, and I look forward to eating it every fall. It’s made of real pure pumpkin purée and a blend of fall spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and a hint of clove.
This rich and dense ice cream tastes amazing when served alongside a slice of warm gluten-free pumpkin bread.
(3) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Ravioli
One of the greatest pumpkin products ever offered by Trader Joe’s is the gluten-free pumpkin ravioli, which the grocer introduced in 2023.
I wanted the world to know about this product, so I reviewed it in detail in another article, Trader Joe’s Adds Gluten-Free Pumpkin Ravioli.
This ravioli 100% lives up to the hype and is incredibly delicious. Thank you, Trader Joe’s!
(4) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix
Now is the time to stock up on Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancake mix, where Trader Joe’s says you can have your pancake and eat it too.
With this mix in hand, you’ll be able to quickly whip up a batch of fluffy, pumpkin-spiced pancakes this holiday season.
(5) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Bagels
The gluten-free community goes wild for Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Bagels. The bagels are soft and squishy; when toasted, you won’t be able to tell they’re gluten-free.
These delightful bagels are made from potato starch, brown rice flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and clove spices.
Use Trader Joe’s pumpkin-flavored cream cheese shmear (not labeled gluten-free, but no gluten ingredients) for a bonus pumpkin experience.
(6) Gluten-Free Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Pumpkin Struesel Muffins are back again this year and just as moist and tender as ever. The texture of these muffins is the exact texture you crave in a pumpkin muffin.
The muffins are made from a blend of white and brown rice flours, corn starch, and tapioca starch, as well as pumpkin purée, cinnamon-sugar pumpkin spice bits, and a crumbly Streusel topping made with brown sugar, butter, [gluten-free] oats, and pumpkin spice.
(7) Trader Joe’s Pumpkin O’s Cereal
Trader Joe’s version of pumpkin Cheerios is back again this year, and thank goodness the beloved cereal is labeled gluten-free!
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin O’s are made from a blend of brown rice from the U.S. and oats from Canada. They’re sweetened with real cane sugar, brown cane sugar, and actual pumpkin, allowing you to add a touch of fall to the breakfast table.
(8) Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Tortilla Chips are labeled gluten-free, making it a fun treat to try when you’re on a gluten-free diet.
I thought the chips would be sweet, but they’re definitely more savory and salty than pumpkin spicy. Nevertheless, you can taste hints of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and you’ll find baked-in pumpkin seeds enhance the texture of these corn chips.
Serve them with my pumpkin hummus for a savory and sweet fall appetizer. (Please note Trader Joe’s discontinued its pumpkin hummus for 2023.)
(9) Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark
Truth be told, the Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark isn’t my favorite gluten-free pumpkin product, but I know many people who love it, so I had to include it on my list.
The granola is pumpkin spiced, and it’s layered with dark chocolate and toasted pumpkin seeds for a seasonal treat that will jazz up your graze boards and sweeten any occasion.
(10) Pumpkin Overnight Oats
If you love morning oats, you’ll love Trader Joe’s Overnight Oats made with pumpkin.
While oats are controversial, and some extremists avoid oats altogether, this product is labeled gluten-free, which means the product contains less than 20 ppm of gluten and meets the FDA’s gluten-free labeling guidelines.
The hearty overnight oats are sweetened with date paste vs. sugar and are infused with pumpkin puree, almond butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I haven’t tried it because I’m not much of an overnight oats person, but I hear it’s delightful.
(11) Non-Dairy Pumpkin Oat Milk Beverage
I decided to add another gluten-free pumpkin find to my list for all my oat milk-loving friends. Trader Joe’s non-dairy Pumpkin Oat Milk is labeled gluten-free and dairy-free, so go ahead and add a pinch of this creamy pumpkin goodness to your morning cup of Joe.
