We may be preaching to the choir here, but have you ever noticed how many foods contain gluten? Sure, with new products like chickpea pasta, grain-free cassava flour, and plenty of almond-based crackers, it's actually easier than ever to eliminate gluten from your diet. But when you're looking at all of the cakes, pies, and brownies set at the table for dessert, it may not feel that way.
Whether you have Celiac's disease or you're gluten-free for other health reasons, it can sometimes feel like your options for dessert are almost nonexistent. But don't worry! By swapping out a simple ingredient or two, you can have your cake and eat it too — literally. And as you'll soon see, some of these creative gluten-free desserts taste even better than their traditional counterparts. We hope you're hungry, because these are our favorite sweet (and gluten free) treats!
