20+ Best Gluten-Free Walmart Finds
If you are on a gluten-free diet, then you are going to want to check out this post with the Best Gluten-Free Healthy Walmart Finds! This list is great for anyone who is on a budget but needs to be on a gluten-free diet.
This is not sponsored post, but just my experience with shopping at what is the most popular store in America.
While I love to shop locally and buy seasonal produce at my farmers’ markets around town, I often shop at Walmart to help stock my pantry.
A lot of people think that it is outrageously expensive to eat healthy, but I am on a mission to show that it is possible to eat clean on a budget. It does take planning and some skill to find the bargains.
My #1 tip is to read the label on anything you buy that comes in a box or package. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, then skip the item (see my related article on why Rice Krispie Treats are not healthy).
I hope this list gives you some inspiration for healthy items that you can look for on your next Walmart shopping trip.
You will no doubt find different products in your local Walmart (and the prices might be different from what you see in my photos depending on when you’re reading this post), but I’m hoping this virtual tour of what I found will inspire you to look on your shelves a little more closely.
Let’s get shopping!!!
Best Gluten-Free Healthy Finds at Walmart
1. Rolled Oats
Oats are great to have around the house, especially for breakfast.
You can use these certified gluten-free oats from Bob’s Red Mill to make recipes like Homemade Oat Milk, Oat Milk Smoothie with Strawberry & Banana, Oat Milk Pancakes, or just plain oatmeal!
2. Frozen Fruit
Frozen fruit is often less expensive than fresh fruit, and it’s perfect for making breakfast smoothies. While you’re in the freezer aisle, you can also grab some frozen spinach to pop into your smoothie.
See my article on the health benefits of green smoothies for inspiration and a recipe for making a delicious green smoothie.
Banana are great for snacks or healthy dessert recipes like my Banana Oatmeal Cookies or Almond Flour Banana Muffins. You can always freeze your ripe bananas for smoothies too (see how to freeze bananas).
4. Coconut milk
I always keep coconut milk in my pantry to use in main dishes like my Crockpot Coconut Chicken Stew or my Instant Pot Indian Chicken Curry.
I also use coconut milk as the base of my dairy-free Mango Ice Cream.
5. Green Tea
Green tea is a comforting beverage with a bit of pick-me-up and a nice dose of antioxidants. I love that Walmart carries these Yogi teas and you can search for your favorite blend.
Avocado are great for adding healthy fats into your diet. Avocados can go into smoothies as a healthy fat source, or be served as guacamole, Avocado Spread, or even as a dessert, like this Chocolate Avocado Pudding.
See how to freeze ripe avocados so they never go to waste.
7. Coconut Oil
I use coconut oil for baking, sautéing, or even as a fat source for smoothies. Coconut oil is one of the safest cooking oils and is in many of my recipes.
8. Chia Seeds and 9. Hemp seeds
Chia seeds and hemp seeds are both are so versatile! I almost always throw a tablespoon of either of these into my morning smoothie. They are healthy with lots of nutrition.
10. Almond Butter
Almond butter is great to have around as spread on a bananas as a snack, or as an ingredient for my Double Chocolate Almond Butter Energy Balls.
11. Organic Quinoa
Quinoa is a great gluten-free grain option (quinoa is actually a seed, not even a true grain). I love this Costco Copycat Quinoa Salad for a to-go lunch option.
These are a nice to have on hand for a great, healthy-ish snack. Great lunchbox or backpack items! This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor is my absolute favorite.
13. Almond flour
This is a fantastic gluten-free AND grain-free flour. I used it in my recipe for Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookies and it’s a pantry staple for me.
14. Gluten-free corn tortillas
Tortillas are great for gluten-free tacos. I always buy extra packages of tortillas and keep them in the freezer until I need them.
Some of my favorite recipes using corn tortillas include Air Fryer Fish Tacos Without Breading, Instant Pot Chicken Tinga Tacos, and Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup.
15. Rockfish (Sustainably Harvested)
This frozen fish can be baked and tucked into the corn tortillas. Don’t forget to top with avocado slices!
16. Stir-Fry Rice Noodles
These rice noodles are perfect for an easy dinner. Just add vegetables and maybe some leftover fish or your choice of protein. Thai Kitchen noodles are amazing and are one of my top gluten-free pasta brand favorites.
17. Organic Chicken Bone Broth
I was thrilled to see that a good quality chicken broth is available at Walmart. This one is also reduced sodium which is always my preference.
18. Coconut Flour
This grain-free, keto-friendly, and gluten-free flour is one of my favorites! Coconut flour can be tricky to work with, though, so be sure to always use a tried and tested recipe.
One of my favorite coconut flour recipes is this one for Coconut Flour Muffins. I also like this Coconut Flour Double Chocolate Mug Cake.
19. Sunfood Acai Maqui Bowl Mix
Making smoothie bowls has never been easier with this mix from Sunfood. I was shocked to see such a “fancy” brand at Walmart, with a great price to boot!
20. Bisquick Gluten-Free Pancake Mix
I have not tried this one yet, but I was thrilled to see an affordable gluten-free baking mix on the shelves. If you have tried this brand, please let me know how you liked it!
I have not seen a specific gluten-free aisle or section at Walmart. So, you’ll have to look for certain gluten-free items in areas like baking, snacks, and elsewhere. In other words, the gluten-free items are mixed together with the non gluten-free items.
Walmart.com does have a specific gluten-free section.

Great list you have here. I will take note of everything then for our next grocery
Gluten free food is not something I have to look for, but it is great that both supermarkets and restaurants are starting to address the issue.
Great to know that more and more gluten-free options are becoming available in groceries these days.
I use a lot of these brands. Yogi tea is my absolute favorite!
