Gluten Free at Starbucks: Valencia Orange Cake















Starbucks has finally gotten on the gluten free bandwagon. They have a delicious Valencia Orange Cake that is made from whole eggs, valencia orange pulp, almonds, sugar, orange peel, gluten-free baking powder and orange oil. I love the short list of ingredients which are similar to ingredients you might use at home. With 9 grams of protein from the almond and eggs it is super satisfying and almost a quick meal on the run. After eating the moist cake, a delicious orange flavor lingered in my mouth and I was full. The best part is that it is also casein (dairy) free and soy free so everyone in my family can enjoy it. And it is only $1.95--which seems like an amazing price for a gluten free product.

WHAT TO FEED YOUR KIDS: Choose snack food that has minimal additives and preservatives whenever possible. This Valencia Orange Cake, which contains seven ingredients, is a good example of a ready made sweet treat that doesn't have a long list of chemicals in it.

We discovered these a few weeks back and agree, they are pretty yummy and the ingredients look good. Finally, I can stop smuggling my own gluten/dairy free muffins into Starbucks!
