Glorious Gluten-Free Nutella Desserts

August 20, 2014

Gluten-free desserts especially delicious when they contain a certain irresistible Italian chocolate hazelnut spread - Nutella.  This secret ingredient adds tremendous flavor without the worry of wheat sneaking in.  Whether you include the trademark spread or simply mix chocolate and hazelnut together - it's guaranteed to be good.  These gluten-free Nutella desserts are for anyone who has a sweet tooth, not only wheat-free eaters.

Raw Nutella Bars
Recipe from Becomingness

These raw Nutella bars are a sweet treat for those of us watching our waist lines or practicing a raw diet.  The base of the bars are made from a combination of dates, macadamia nuts, and a dash of sea salt.  The Nutella top is actually a mixture of ground hazelnuts, cacao, vanilla extract, maple syrup and coconut milk instead of the jarred product.

Gluten-Free Nutella Cookies
Recipe from Nicky's Kitchen Sanctuary

Crumbly, buttery and delicious, these gluten-free Nutella cookies are a dynamite treat.  Made from a combination of oat flour and ground almonds, the nuttiness of the cookie pairs perfectly with the chocolate hazelnut spread.  Not only is the Nutella drizzled on top but there is also a dollop hiding inside.

Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Cake
Recipe from Life Made Simple

This flourless chocolate hazelnut cake is a rich and delicious dessert.  Since there is no flour, the cake turns out to be dense, not unlike a cheesecake, and is creamy in texture.  The addition of both vanilla extract and espresso powder helps to enhance the Nutella flavor.
