Make some great treats with this list of easy gluten-free desserts!
Sometimes it’s discouraging to find out that you need to be eating gluten-free, but the great thing is most desserts can easily be made gluten-free with minor tweaks such as flour.
I’m going to share a list today of some great gluten-free dessert recipes, you are sure to find some that you like!
What flour should you use for gluten-free desserts?
The desserts I’m sharing will all use gluten-free all-purpose flour. This flour needs to be a 1:1 swap, which means you can use the same amounts of regular all-purpose flour as you would gluten-free all-purpose flour.
There are many different ones you can choose from. I use Better Batter the most, but others include King Arthur Flour, Cup 4 Cup, and Jules Gluten-Free.
Any flour will do as long as it is a cup for cup, so use the one that you prefer.
It’s important to be sure to use all gluten-free ingredients, many ingredients can be cross-contaminated, this is specifically true with generic brands.
If a recipe calls for gluten-free oats, be sure to choose one that is safe for you. This is true for all ingredients, even nuts can be cross-contaminated, so always be sure to check the labels.
Other ingredients that can be cross-contaminated are spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and all others. I have found this to be the truest with Great Value brand spices.
So it is imperative, even more so if you have true celiac that you check those labels before preparing your desserts.
Some of these recipes will use a cake mix as a base as well, so you would opt for a gluten-free cake mix.
What types of desserts can you make gluten-free?
Almost all desserts can be made gluten-free with simple swaps. It’s truly not that hard to make!
I know many that think it’ll be a great “diet” to go gluten-free, years ago, that may have been true but nowadays there is an alternative gluten-free option for almost everything and it isn’t always healthy.
That holds true for desserts!
Gluten-Free Desserts can include cakes, ice cream, cupcakes, pies, tarts, trifles, and more!
