We all need to indulge our sweet tooth once in a while, but when you're living a gluten-free lifestyle, finding diet-appropriate sweets can be a little difficult – especially when you're on vacation. Luckily, you'll find plenty of options for gluten-free baked goods in Palm Springs, so you can satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your diet.

For gluten-free baked goods on the go, one of your best bets is Koffi in Palm Springs.
