  1. Thank you for all the encouraging recipe ideas. My family and I recently found excellent gluten-free croissants in the frozen-food section of a health food store in Europe. I haven’t seen anything similar in the U.S. I know that making croissants is a big project, but we’re up for it. Can you recommend a gluten-free recipe for them?

    • Hi Jean! Mmm there’s nothing quite like a warm croissant with coffee/tea in the morning! We’re focusing on home baking right now so we haven’t looked into European croissants, which are typically baked using very special equipment. Our conversion chart should be useful if you decide to experiment with this – we recommend starting with a solid, traditional recipe and converting the allergen-free flours in yourself (more on that in this post). Please let us know how it works out!
