Our Story

Josie of Josie's Best Gluten Free

Josette Johnson Josies Best

We’re there for those delicious moments when “I can’t eat that” turns into “I can eat that?!”

For the sleeves rolled up, flour on the nose messes that are the beginning of lifelong memories. We’re there on Sundays when you want to pile the pancakes higher than little hands can reach them. Or when you’ve declared “breakfast for dinner” and, somehow, it’s the best night of the week. Josie’s Best Gluten Free is there for all the moments you should never miss out on because of a food allergy. 

From her childhood watching her culinary father whip up breakfasts, Josie has always appreciated good food—especially if that food was fluffy, round, and drizzled with syrup. When she was diagnosed with food allergies in her 20s, she set out to find a pancake mix that could stand up to her cravings. When she couldn’t find it on the market, she spent hours in her kitchen tinkering with ingredients and measurements until she created what we now simply call “the pancake.” From there, we’ve grown Josie’s Best Gluten Free to include the waffle, the muffin & more, and the crepe. 

What started as a personal mission has grown into a larger one—to bring back breakfast for everyone. Today, our customers are revived breakfast enthusiasts, home bakers, and well-loved restaurants looking to provide delicious options for all. And, just like a plate of pancakes or fresh-baked bread, Josie’s is best served with warm smiles and a side of family connection.

Our Mission

With ingredients free of major allergens and full of all the goodness you missed, we’re mixing up delicious alternatives to waffles and other treats the whole family can enjoy.
