22 Gluten Free Recipes to Try Right Now
One of the most popular questions I get is how to make a recipe gluten free. That and “how are you not 500 lbs?”– that one’s definitely number 1. My secrets? Bake for others. Taste what you must. Run like a wild banshee/Phoebe.
To answer your other question, I’m not the one to ask about gluten free baking. To be honest, I have very little experience with gluten free flour blends because no one in my family has a gluten intolerance. And I just don’t feel confident making recommendations for you without sufficient practice! That being said, I’ve been churning out naturally gluten free recipes on my blog for the past couple of years. Recipes where you don’t even need flour so the whole all-purpose flour replacement thing is a moo point. (I binge watched friends this weekend.)
I know many of you either have a gluten intolerance or are giving up/reducing gluten for personal preference, so I decided to pull together some of my favorite recipes that happen to be naturally gluten free as a bonus. Legit good stuff here!
I am 100% obsessed with this fruit tart. First of all, the crust is only made from two ingredients: nuts and dried fruit. Then you have tangy and perfectly thick greek yogurt on top. Protein! Protein! Then a layer of fresh fruit on top. I’ve served this for breakfast, dessert, and eat the leftovers as a snack. It’s completely guilt free/gluten free healthy dessert central.
This recipe blows my mind every time I make it. These healthy snack bars have only 1 Tablespoon of refined sugar, no butter, no oil, and are made with 100% good for you ingredients. Use certified GF oats to ensure they are gluten free.
Here’s a recipe Kevin and I make at least 2-3 times per month. I was inspired to begin making them after my sister-in-law shared them with me. They’re vegetarian, completely satisfying, flavor-packed, healthy, crisp, and super versatile. Add your favorite spices and veggies! I loooove these crispy quinoa patties over salad.
One of the top 10 cookie recipes I make on the regular. I love that they’re practically health food made from only a few ingredients. You won’t miss the butter, all the excess sugar, and you definitely won’t miss the flour. Kevin’s friends had no idea these were gluten free “healthier” cookies. Only 6 ingredients needed!
Step 1: make a homemade teriyaki sauce. (It’s really easy.) Step 2: Pour over chicken and pineapple. Step 3: Bake, eat, obsess. Such a simple dinner! I usually serve it with broccoli, brown rice, or baked sweet potatoes.
These sinfully rich truffles, along with most of Sally’s Candy Addiction cookbook, are completely gluten free. You see, candy doesn’t need flour. It’s mostly sugar, butter, chocolate, cream, etc. Health food? Eh, not so much. 🙁 Gluten free? Absolutely!
A fraction of calories for a whopping serving! And oh my gosh, the flavor. I love making crustless quiches because they’re packed with protein, unbelievably light, and you can throw just about anything in them like leftover meat, cheese, veggies, spices, etc. Bonus: it’s all prepared in one pan!
These chocolate peanut butter bars taste like straight up candy bars. They’re exceptionally chewy, packed with oats, and remind me of my beloved no-bake cookies (which are also gluten free!). Make sure you use certified GF oats.
Guess what? I make this stuff with Greek yogurt! This pizza dip lives up to its higher fat alternative. My proof is setting it in front of Kevin’s friends when they watch football, gobble it up in seconds, and ask for more. This is absolutely the best pizza dip I’ve ever had. Enjoy with gluten free crackers, pretzels, chips, veggies!
My jaw drops whenever I make these gluten free cookies because it astounds me that there are only 7 ingredients in them. And they taste so damn good! Soft, chewy, chocolate, peanut butter, bliss.
Hello horizontal photo. Here’s a major throwback to 2012 when all I ate were these oatmeal bars. Well, almost everything I ate. I made these every single week and brought them into work to snack on before or after lunch. Each bar is satisfying, wholesome, and if you use certified GF oats– gluten free!
I love macaroon cookies! If you follow me on snapchat, you saw me make a version of these naturally gluten free cookies the other week for Christmas. Try adding fresh strawberry for a little extra flavor. And for pink. Duh.
A true “set it and forget it” slow cooker recipe! Readers have been loving this recipe since I posted it last month. I’ve made it at least a dozen times and can’t sing enough praises. Oh god, you don’t want to hear me sing. But you DO need to try this. Enjoy with a side of veggies, a salad, baked potato, or gluten free crackers.
Both diet-friendly and gluten free. These were inspired by a carton of Trader Joes sea salt & turbinado sugar chocolate almonds that my friend brought over. I could NOT stop eating them.
