Gluten Free Christmas Treats

November 30, 2014

Christmas cooking just got a whole lot easier. Now you can gift your favorite treats to all your friends, even those who are living gluten free. We have found a bunch of recipes that leave out the gluten but never the taste. These recipes are festive and make fantastic presents. Of course, you should try them out now to be sure they are good enough. At least that's our excuse. 

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Donuts

From Feeding My Addiction

It's hard to believe that these moist cake donuts are gluten free. They taste minty and chocolaty, perfect alongside a hot cup of cocoa. 

Classic Gluten Free Chocolate Pound Cake

from Healthy Aperture

One bite of this chocolate pound cake, and you will forget all about the vanilla version. It's richly flavored with chocolate, and absolutely decadent with the thick rich frosting on top. If you think pound cake has to be plain and yellow, think again. 

The Ultimate Gluten Free Pie Crust

From Blue Crab Martini

Everyone expects pie for the holidays, but being gluten free usually means you won't get any. Now you can make a pie crust that is tasty enough to serve everyone, and is gluten free! It's tender and flaky, while not being too heavy. Perfect!

Dried Cranberry and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

From Baking Magique

Cookies make the holiday magical! From baking with family, to bringing a plate of them to a friend, cookies have a place on the Christmas menu. We love that these gluten free cookies are so delicious that you can gift them without anyone knowing they are actually GF. Aren't they pretty? 

Peppermint Snowballs

From Great Food and Lifestyle

Snowballs are a classic cookie that has been off limits to our gluten free son until now. These chocolate versions are just as moist and decadent-almost like fudge! They are fantastic!
