Whether you forgo gluten out of necessity or a desire to re-vamp the old waistline, chances are you like satisfyingly flavorful food just as much as your wheat-eating counterparts.

I know from experience that it can be particularly hard to find delicious gluten-free sweets, so I was skeptical when I spotted Cinnamon Rolls behind the counter at Cameron Park’s Azna Gluten Free Bakery. I’ve always loved a certain mall food court version of the cinnamon roll and seriously doubted a dairy and wheat flour-free version would measure up. I realized the error of my thought process after just one bite of this dense, frosted treat. According to Azna’s Web site, these delectable pastries are best sellers, no doubt thanks to their generous size and pleasantly chewy texture. Perfect with a cup of morning coffee or as a midnight snack, this spiced-to-perfection delight left me happily satiated rather than stuffed. The menu at Azna boasts a range of delicious gluten-free options, from waffles and scones to pizza and bread, all made fresh with a special blend of energy and passion. Azna Gluten Free Bakery, 2647 Cameron Park Drive, Cameron Park. 530-677-5810,
