Three Gluten-Free Desserts for the Holidays

The holidays are a time where warmth and sweetness prevail. While someone living with a gluten allergy has many options for their main course, it’s a bit tougher to navigate desserts, which are usually a gluten mine field.

Having a dietary restriction used to put a damper on the holiday cheer, but with the myriad of delicious gluten-free recipes available now, it’s no longer an issue.

Can we get a “pa rum pum pum pum”?

For those of you ready to ring in the gluten-free holidays without sacrificing your sweet tooth, here are three delectable gluten-free desserts to enjoy while the chestnuts roast on an open fire.

  • Pumpkin Cheesecake – You can’t celebrate the holidays without a healthy portion of pumpkin. There’s probably a law somewhere forbidding the omission of pumpkin in everything during the holidays, or at least we imagine there is, considering all the pumpkin-tinged products available. This decadent recipe serves 10-12 people and has all the spice and warmth people crave during the season. It includes a super easy recipe for gluten-free pie crust (you literally just mix everything in a food processor. That’s it!), and simple directions for the cheesecake filling.
  • Grilled Peach Sundaes – Let’s be honest. We’re not all Betty Crocker, and baking is kind of a tough skill. This is why we love the simplicity of this recipe. It is virtually impossible to mess it up. Just fire up the grill and throw some sliced fresh peaches on there. Let them get nice and crispy, and then serve them with your favorite gluten-free ice cream. The site calls for vanilla ice cream, but we’re sweet on coconut milk ice cream. The combination of warmth and cold is absolutely lovely. And you can totally play with toppings. Nuts, cinnamon, a dollop of jam…the possibilities are endless!
  • Maple Leaf Cream Cookies – We enjoy a tasty dessert, but we love it even more when it looks great. An aesthetically-pleasing sweet is definitely a treat for both the taste buds and the eye, which is why we recommend this recipe. Who wouldn’t want to bite into a cute maple leaf-shaped cookie sandwich? If maple leaves aren’t your thing, you can go with any other shape, like a Christmas tree if you’re feeling extra seasonal.

The days of skipping on dessert because of an allergy are long gone. With these helpful, tasty recipes, your gluten-free holidays will surely be extra sweet. So dive in this Christmas, and maybe leave a little extra by the fireplace for Santa.

About CeliAct

Your needs for vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are significantly higher if you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance—even if you follow a gluten-free diet. While some celebrities claim that the gluten-free diet is a healthier alternative to a regular diet, the truth is that the gluten-free diet may be lacking in key vitamins and minerals. B-complex vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins and calcium are some of the nutrients that the average person gets from the cereals, whole grains, and other fortified foods that individuals following a strict gluten-free diet may be lacking. Some individuals that follow a gluten-free diet also have intestinal discomfort. One way to support digestive health is to supplement your diet with digestive enzymes, probiotics, and other nutrients. Blog Writers are Zach Rachins and Max Librach
