Want to bake and stick to your gluten-free lifestyle? These gluten-free baking recipes are perfect for curbing your cravings.
Gluten-free baking has come a long way. If you’re imagining sad breads, soggy pastry or crumbly cookies, think again! Our gluten-free baking recipes showcase the huge array of bakes you can make without a speck of wheat flour or other gluten—from chewy sandwich bread to lofty cakes, tender cookies to tasty pies. We include classics like chocolate chip cookies, as well as fresh recipes that will become family favorites.
A foolproof recipe for beginning gluten-free bakers, GF banana bread is quick to mix and has all the cozy, comforting flavor of traditional banana bread. Since quick breads don’t need the robust structure gluten provides, most translate extremely well to gluten-free baking—and might even be more tender.
A perennial favorite homemade treat, these gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are perfectly chewy and ready to dip. For this recipe, we recommend one of our favorite store-bought gluten-free flour blends, Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Flour, though other blends will still work.
Who says a gluten-free dessert can’t be a showstopper? This GF red velvet cake is chocolate-y, slightly tangy and almost fizzy thanks to a secret ingredient. Naturally, our recipe includes a lick-the-bowl homemade cream cheese frosting, too.
Packed with whole grains and lightly sweet, these gluten-free oatmeal cookies make a passably healthy snack as well as a tasty dessert. Thanks to the addition of oats as well as flour, they’re just as chewy as traditional oatmeal cookies. Make sure to use gluten-free oats for this recipe, as they’re grown, harvested and processed differently from gluten-containing grains to ensure that they’re safe.
You can’t beat a fresh-from-the-oven blueberry muffin, and no one will be able to tell these are gluten-free. If you have leftovers, you’ll be happy to know these muffins freeze well. Just pop in the microwave to reheat. Your future self will thank you!
A simple pan of cornbread makes the best accompaniment to a cozy stew or soup. Although cornmeal is naturally gluten-free, many recipes do contain a bit of wheat flour for a softer, more cake-like texture. Our gluten-free recipe is just as good, sans gluten.
With a creamy, spiced custard filling and tender crust, this gluten-free pumpkin pie will stand proudly on any Thanksgiving dessert table. The crust includes a scoop of almond flour, which is both tasty and rich in oils, contributing to a tender crumb.
Think shortbread cookies are too fussy to make gluten-free? This recipe will prove you wrong. It’s easy to make and full of rich, buttery flavor, proving that the simplest things are sometimes best.
A cookie jar staple, gluten-free gingerbread cookies are a fun recipe to bake with kids. Our recipe makes a spiced, rich cookie dough that’s easy to roll out and cut into your favorite shapes. We include several decorating ideas, too.
A rich and cozy fall baking recipe, gluten-free pumpkin bread is quick to mix. The extra-moist bread also keeps well at room temperature for a few days, so you can enjoy it for breakfast all week.
