Now that the weather is warm, there’s plenty of reasons to get out and explore some new gluten free options in the District (and beyond). Here are some of my latest discoveries:
1. You can find Happy Tart Bakery AND Stumptown Coffee at Killer E.S.P. in Old Town Alexandria
I spent two glorious hours reading in an oversized leather chair at Killer E.S.P yesterday. With an Americano made from Stumptown Coffee, and a chewy and buttery chocolate chip cookie from Happy Tart Bakery, I couldn’t have been happier! They carry tarts, cookies, and Nutella pastries (pictured above), all gluten free and wonderful indulgences. As long as they keep the sugary treats coming, this will be my favorite coffee shop.
2. Skinny Girl “Tasty Nutrition Bars” are all gluten free, and actually tasty!
I picked up a box of the Chocolate Peanut Butter and Sea Salt bars at Target, and was surprised at how tasty they were! Usually I brace for the worst when trying a protein bar, but these are chewy, sweet, and a great on-the-go breakfast option.
3. DC Dosa at Whole Foods Foggy Bottom
Dosas are a great healthy and gluten free alternative to a burrito or wrap sandwich. Made out of lentil puree, you can get it filled with everything from potatoes to spiced vegetables. Now you can find a DC Dosa stand in the prepared foods section in the Foggy Bottom Whole Foods.
