40 Gluten Free Holiday Desserts
Friends, I’m going to be real with you. I love smoothies, I love salads, I love clean eating as a lifestyle – but when it comes to the holidays, we relax a little. On a daily basis we don’t eat desserts after dinner, except special occasions and the holidays are definitely a special occasion! Parties, gatherings, cookie exchanges, holiday dinners – oh, they are all beckoning for amazing holiday desserts. I love baking during the Christmas season. From the traditional shortbread cookies to more complex cakes – ’tis the season to be making something delicious! Of course the joy of baking is also sharing and giving it to family and friends to enjoy.
Today, I’ve rounded up 40 gluten-free holiday dessert recipes that are sure to be loved and enjoyed all throughout the holidays – I’ve even included a few of The Best of this Life’s favourite and most popular gluten-free Christmas cookie recipes.
You’ll want to bookmark this page and pin all of these amazing gluten free desserts to make for all your holiday gatherings.
