If there is one thing every coeliac hates, it’s ANOTHER gluten free brownie. That feeling when you walk into a coffee shop or cafe and the only gluten free offering is the humble chocolate brownie. In fact, when I wrote my post on 19 things you’ll understand if you have coeliac disease, the chocolate brownie seemed to invoke some pure rage!
So here are 13 things every coeliac feels about gluten free brownies, illustrated by the most GIF-able television character and all round legend, Michael Scott. And if you haven’t seen The Office US, you should all go and watch it now! How many of these are true for you!?
Oh my God A SIGN THAT SAYS GLUTEN FREE!

I mean, you’ve got ONE gluten free option, you needn’t have bothered.
I’m never coming back here unless they do something else gluten free
