25 Easy Gluten-Free Desserts That Taste Like the Real Thing
In the past, going gluten-free was a tough life sentence. It was nearly impossible to find ingredients to make edible recipes, let alone whip up a dessert that had any flavor—or a texture that didn’t feel like sand. But times have changed! These 25 gluten-free desserts are sweet treats that anyone will enjoy.
10. Fig and Ricotta Flatbread
If cheese can be a dessert, so can this sweet flatbread with ricotta and sweet figs. Pour a glass of crisp cider for the perfect pairing!
15. APPLE MUFFINS WITH ALMONDS
You don’t often see apple and almonds together. But why not get your daily serving of fruit and nuts in one sweet dessert?
16. Rice Pudding
It’s always better if you can make a dish where you don’t have to sub ingredients. Because, by the way, rice pudding is naturally gluten-free! (Thanks, Coterie member Liz Falcigno.)
18. PEAR AND PISTACHIO ROSE CAKE
Edible rose petals make this gluten-free rosewater cake extra Insta-worthy. Hashtag yum.
19. No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
We’ve never met a scoop of mint chocolate chip we didn’t like, but this version takes it over the top with real mint instead of the artificial stuff.
20. Coconut Rice Pudding with Rhubarb Compote
The secret to this creamy rice pudding? Three types of milk (whole milk, coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk), plus a crunchy rhubarb topping.
21. A Fruicuterie Board
Skip all that baking nonsense and assemble an eye-catching fruicuterie board of mixed fruit and cheese galore.
22. APPLE BLACKBERRY CRUMBLE TART
Almond flour and superfine brown rice flour create the crumble for this tart, which uses any blend of seasonal fruit and spices.
23. FLOURLESS COCOA COOKIES
Flourless chocolate may as well be renamed “gooey richness” since it’s basically that: a molten and gluten-free chocolate dessert.
24. LEMON CAKE
Cauliflower (yep, you heard us) adds oomph to this gluten-free, vegan lemon cake that literally everyone will love.
