The best gluten-free dessert recipes!

You probably have at least one friend who avoids eating gluten. And with new year’s resolutions underway, they might be even more common. When you don’t bake gluten-free recipes often, it can be intimidating to try to make one. Many recipes call for a variety of specialty flours or gums. While I’ve used almond flour and quinoa flour, I’ve never been motivated to invest in an array of gluten-free flours beyond that (and they can be expensive!). As a result, when baking for friends or family members who don’t eat gluten, I stick with dessert recipes that are naturally gluten-free. This tends to be a successful strategy because as you can see below, there are still a ton of options.

One important note, though. If you are baking for someone who has a serious gluten-allergy, cross contamination of flours can be a serious issue. Make sure that your dishes, utensils and counter surfaces are completely clean and that all ingredients are specifically labeled gluten-free. Something like oatmeal, for example, is naturally gluten-free, but some brands may be made in facilities that are not completely gluten-free.
