I know so many people dealing with gluten intolerance, and over the years, I’ve created a bunch of gluten-free desserts. For some recipes, I couldn’t find gluten-free flour that worked, so I got creative and crafted my own blend of ingredients for the flour.
I’ve got a bunch of recipes here with loads of variations – from chocolatey goodness to yummy cakes and muffins. There’s a little something for everyone, so dive in and enjoy!
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 152
If you like to make gluten free desserts, then you’re in for a treat. It’s so amazing that there are so many great gluten free flours out there in the stores.
My daughter teeters back and forth with a gluten free diet, and so I have created some dishes for our family. I found it a fun challenge to create a dessert that you can’t tell it is gluten free.
So here are some, sweet treats without the wheat!
A Personal Note from Janine
What a crazy week it’s been!
First, my website crashed, and then my computer decided to call it quits. To top it off, my household chores are still hanging over my head. Thankfully, I can use my husband’s computer, or this post wouldn’t even be possible!
Today, however, the sun is shining, and things are starting to look up.
Despite the chaos, I have a soft spot for this time of year. I find myself daydreaming about blooming flowers, spring green hills, pink tree blossoms, and the promise of warmer days.
Living in San Francisco has its perks, and with spring just around the corner, I can’t help but enjoy the short winters and the green hills that have flourished from the recent torrential rain.
But, back to this Saturday Chitchat, it’s all about gluten free dessert recipes!
I’ve been in the kitchen a lot lately, so I’m excited to share this post with you.
This Week’s Inspiration – Gluten Free Dessert Recipes
This smooth Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake is wheat-free but tastes like it has wheat. It’s similar to a lemon pound cake recipe minus the wheat flour. The intense lemon flavor makes it the best lemon cake around.
This Recipe for Gluten Free Pizzelles is easy to make with just a few ingredients. No flour surpasses the authentic Italian gluten-free Caputo flour, crafted meticulously in Italy. Indulge in this thin, crispy, buttery cookie that pairs perfectly with a bowl of creamy ice cream or a cup of coffee.
This is a heart-shaped chocolate mold that you break to see what is inside! The great thing about making this is you can use any flavor of chocolate, so have fun with this tutorial.
The Classic Pavlova Recipe originates from Australia. It’s a sweetened crisp meringue base made from whipped egg whites traditionally topped with fresh whipped cream and a medley of your preferred fruits. Ideal for summertime gatherings, this light, and airy dessert are simply perfect for entertaining. Prepare the meringue in advance and assemble it just before serving.
Well, I recently made some lemon curd and thought it would go nicely with my Pavlova Recipe. So, today, I baked some mini nests for Easter and topped it with my homemade English Lemon Curd and cute Cadbury chocolate eggs. The results are adorable and super easy to make.
Make these brownies when you want to make a decadent chocolate Oreo dessert without the flour.
This delicious brownie contains a chocolate chip cookie base with an Oreo cookie middle and is topped with a chocolatey brownie. All of these delightful layers are gluten-free.
Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons are such an easy cookie to make. This light and sweet dessert only has five to six ingredients.
These Chocolate Covered Apple Slices are not only delicious but also visually appealing.
The shiny chocolate coating is garnished with sprinkles or crushed cookies, making the apple slices impossible to resist. It’s a treat that looks as good as it tastes, making it the perfect dessert.
This Ranger Cookie Recipe blends oatmeal, coconut, cornflakes, and chocolate chips. This blend of yummy ingredients creates crispy edges with a slightly chewy texture. You can substitute both the flour with my gluten-free flour blend.
This gluten-free Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins recipe offers the delightful taste of a regular gluten muffin. The secret lies in combining almond flour with other gluten-free ingredients to achieve a moist and flaky texture. Incorporating fresh or frozen blueberries into the recipe adds a burst of flavor and moisture, resulting in a perfect little treat.
Lemon sorbet in a Lemon is a wonderfully refreshing dessert perfect for hot summer days. This version of lemon sorbet is incredibly easy to make since you don’t need an ice cream maker. Lemon sorbet served in frozen lemon shells is an impressive and delicious dessert. This frozen lemon sorbet only has five ingredients that are simple to combine.
This recipe is the best gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. In addition, this is the best recipe since it only has four ingredients.

This Week’s Tip – Meringue Tips
This week, I was deep into the world of meringue.
I’d heard about the warnings of a rainy day when making meringue, but I underestimated the impact.
I whipped up some vegan meringue cookies, and fresh out of the oven, they were perfect. However, within minutes, they turned sticky.
On a whim, I stashed some in an airtight container, and wow! The difference was astounding.
The container-kept cookies dried out beautifully, while the ones on our kitchen counter got even stickier. Turns out, with all the rain in the San Francisco Bay Area, my meringues were like sponges, soaking up the moisture in the air!
In a nutshell, if you’re baking on a rainy day, store your meringues in an airtight container after they come out of the oven.
Latest Obsession – Baking Timer
You all know I’m a huge fan of the Great British Baking Show, and something caught my eye – those tiny handheld timers the contestants use.
Usually, I rely on the oven or my phone timer, but that can be a hassle when the oven’s busy or my phone decides to log out.
Recently, I got myself one of those handheld timers, and let me tell you, it’s a game-changer! Timing things, like whipping up egg whites for meringue, has never been easier.
They’re not too pricey, so I’m scratching my head wondering why it took me so long to get one!
This little gadget has made a big difference in the precision of my baking!
