The BEST Gluten Free Desserts Ever
Going gluten free doesn’t have to be a bummer! There are so many substitutes for regular flour that have a wonderful flavor and texture. So much so that in a taste test, you wouldn’t even be able to tell that these are gluten free desserts unless I told you first!
Why Gluten Free?
So how do I know what I’m talking about? Why do I care so much about gluten free desserts?
- I’ve been gluten free for six years now, so I’ve tried a lot of different gluten free foods and recipes.
- I love desserts!!!
When I was pregnant with our middle daughter, I experienced SO much bloating after every meal. I was miserable! (Sorry if that’s TMI, but it’s helpful to understand why I switched to a gluten free diet).
My mom, who already lived gluten free, asked what I ate everyday. Turns out, it was a lot of sandwiches, bread, pasta, etc. AKA…gluten, gluten, and more gluten!!
She suggested that I cut out the gluten to feel better. I thought she was CRAZY, but I was willing to try anything. Well, after just two days of eating gluten free, I felt AMAZING. No more bloat!
I’ve never gone back to my “old” way of eating.
Easy Gluten Free Dessert Recipes – Seriously, They’re Easy!
My husband is the chef in the family, and because he saw how much better I felt without gluten, he committed to mastering how to cook gluten free recipes. Obviously that included lots of gluten free desserts (I was pregnant at the time after all!)
Over time, my husband made LOTS of gluten free desserts and some of them…ok, pretty much ALL of them…turned out to be absolutely delicious.
I’d actually say that his biggest talent in the kitchen is making gluten free dessert recipes of my favorite treats. How lucky am I?!
The good news is that you can enjoy these gluten free desserts too! The recipes are easy to follow and no more difficult to make than any other recipe. Many of these are gluten free dessert recipes with normal ingredients!
