Always on the hunt for gluten-free sweets, I was thrilled to learn about Dough, a dedicated gluten-free bakery in Washington DC. A relatively new venture, Dough appears in pop-up form in various locations, caters events, and also fulfills orders online. I was lucky enough to attend their pop-up at Tabula Rasa near Eastern Market in DC earlier this month and was able to sample nearly all of their goods.

Surprisingly, I don’t think I’d ever had a gluten-free donut (I know, what was I waiting for?!), so these maple pumpkin spice donuts were an absolute must. They were just right: cakey, pumpkin spice perfection with a hint of maple glaze.

Next up were the oatmeal creme pies. I must have eaten hundreds of the junky gluten-ful versions of these as a kid, so these were a great blast from the past. Though these were a healthy, gluten-free update, they tasted just like I remembered: cinnamon and oatmeal with a super-sweet creme center.

Last but certainly not least were the peanut butter and jelly bars. These were absolutely amazing! They had a great bar texture with lots of peanut butter and jelly ribbons throughout. I can’t wait to get my hands on more of these. Though they came in packs of four, I couldn’t get enough!
