Gluten-Free Desserts as Delicious as They Are Easy to Make

Gluten-Free Desserts as Delicious as They Are Easy to Make

If you follow a gluten-free diet, whether due to an allergy, intolerance, celiac disease, or a personal choice, you know that making homemade options to fit your needs can be time consuming, while buying premade options for the convenience can be expensive.
Add to that:
Sometimes gluten-free recipes just don’t taste as good as the traditional versions — especially when it comes to desserts.
But making your own gluten-free — and delicious — dessert doesn’t have to be difficult. With a few simple ingredient swaps, you can transform many favorites into gluten-free treats you’ll love.
A couple of general tips:

  • The main source of gluten in most baked goods is flour. But before you simply swap out all-purpose flour for a gluten-free alternative, be aware it isn’t always a straightforward switch. Gluten provides structure to baked goods, and removing it can change the texture and appearance of a recipe. To help avoid this, try adding xanthan gum or an egg into a recipe when swapping all-purpose flour for gluten-free all-purpose flour.
  • If you want to use almond flour, you may need to slightly increase the rising agent (for example baking soda or baking powder) to accommodate almond flour’s heavier weight. You may also need to increase the amount of almond flour or reduce the liquid in the recipe since this flour naturally contains more moisture than an all-purpose flour does.
