You might’ve tried gluten-free options at a bakery or restaurant in the hopes of eating a somewhat cleaner diet. But more often than not, you were probably left disappointed in the flavor or lack there of.
Luckily, many foodies and bakers have done the dirty work and experimented with different flours and flavors to bring us the best alternatives to dessert classics.
Here are some grain-free goodies that are sure to make you want seconds:
Chocolate Chip Raspberry Shortbread Cookie Bars
Not one, but three gluten-free flours are used to create this delectable dessert. Combine coconut, almond, and tapioca flour to create the base. Top it with some creamy chocolate, fresh raspberries, and a lot of chocolate chips for good measure.
5-Ingredient Sunshine Cookies
You can’t go wrong with five healthy and wholly nutritional ingredients that are easy on the tummy and the food allergies. 20 minutes is all it takes for a plate of guilt-free treats.
Paleo Lemon Bars
The tart custard and buttery crust makes this the perfect summer treat. This one keeps it light and fresh with the bright lemon flavors, but is equally as indulgent.
Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups
Whether you make your nut butter from scratch or pick one up from the grocery store, these peanut butter cups won’t disappoint. Straying away from a traditional Reese’s, this one has peanut butter on the outside and chocolate on the inside.
Bounty Bar Cheesecakes
It’s easy to over-indulge, especially when you think a dish is “healthy.” That’s why these bite-sized cheesecakes are the perfect choice. Mix nuts and dates for the chocolate cookie crust, layer a creamy coconut “cheese,” and add the finishing touch with some melted chocolate.
Brown Butter Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats
Raise your hand if you think Oreos make everything taste better. Us, too. Try this fun take on Rice Krispies Treats by sprinkling your fave gluten-free Oreos on top. Trust us, these are definitely a crowd pleaser.
Chocolate Banana Popsicles
Who knew a dessert could be tasty and healthy? The full fat coconut milk makes this rich and creamy, while the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness. Dip it in chocolate and top it with anything you want — we recommend nuts, chocolate chips, or coconut flakes.
Nut Butter and Sea Salt Brownies
The best part about baking is when your entire house starts smelling like a giant brownie. These are easy to make and are completely flour-free. Make sure you make enough because everyone’s going to want a bite.
