Fall in Love with Gluten Free!

It’s almost February 14th and love is in the air. But you know what? I’ve heard a lot of people say they just aren’t feeling it. Oh sure, you might have a hot date for the big day, or be excitedly planning your Galentine’s party. But if you’re like a lot of folks out there, there’s one thing missing from all the fun. And it’s the FOOD.

“My girls can’t eat store bought pop tarts, so I developed this Gluten-Free Vegan Strawberry Pop Tart Recipe that’s lower in sugar and much healthier.”

Easy Baked Chicken Nuggets from Whole New Mom

“Every time I make these Chicken Nuggets, my husband asks ‘Are these hard to make?’ That’s his code for ‘I love these but don’t want to bug you to make them if it’s too much work.’ Enjoy!”

Refried Beans Tostadas with Avocado + Shrimp from Making Life Sweet

 Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Cake from What the Fork Food Blog 

“This is one of my favorite recipes because you’d never know it was gluten free and it’s so decadent. It’s definitely one of those desserts that shows you gluten free does not mean boring or bland.”

Curry Mac & Cheese from Strength and Sunshine

“This mac and cheese made me fall in love with pasta again! No mushy sad tasteless mess!”

Kitchen Sink Cookies from Faithfully Gluten Free

“We love cookies at our house, and even though I am the only one that HAS to eat gluten free, I share all my baking with my family. These cookies have been loved by everyone, even my kid’s friends, who have no idea they are eating gluten free.”

Turtle Bars (5 Ingredients) from Gluten Free Palate

“This is one of my most popular posts. These chewy, crunchy, and goey turtle bars are super simple to make. Most people think I spent hours in the kitchen. They are easy to make in batches and give as gifts, or bring to gatherings.”

Vegan Chocolate Waffles from Gluten Free with Emily

 “When I first went gluten free all I did was make gluten free waffles. I eventually started creating all sorts of waffle creations. These Chocolate Waffles are still one of the things my friends beg for over and over again, plus they make a pretty good late night treat!”

Gluten Free Flaky Pastries from Fearless Dining

“When our family had to go gluten free, I was convinced I could never eat a French pastry. It took months, but I finally was able to make something we loved.”

Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake from Dishing Delish 

“I love this recipe because Easy. Chocolate. And Cake. Are my three favorite words”

Easiest Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes from Raia’s Recipes

“This is one of my go-to recipes. If I have a brain-freeze as to what we’re having for breakfast, or forgot to set meat out to thaw for dinner, these buttermilk pancakes come to the rescue! They’re made with simple ingredients that I usually have on hand, and they’re quick and easy to whip up. Plus, they’re delicious ;)”

Healthy Paleo “Peanut Butter” Cups {Top 8 Free} from Tessa the Domestic Diva


Sunday Meatloaf from yours truly, Life After Wheat

“Meatloaf was a regular comfort food at our house, and one of the first things we spent the time to perfect. This recipe took years to develop the perfect combination of ingredients for an irresistible meatloaf with the perfect tangy topping. I promise you won’t miss the gluten at all in this one!”

Papas a la Huancaina from My Gluten Free Miami

“My husband is Peruvian and Papas a la Huancaina was one of my favorite dishes. It’s basically a cheesy, creamy sauce with a spicy kick. After I was diagnosed, my husband was standing in the kitchen, and suddenly looked at me saying that I wouldn’t be able to eat this anymore. I burst into tears, once I recovered we did some research and I found a way to make the recipe gluten-free! No one can tell the difference.”

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies from Flippin’ Delicious

“These gluten free soft frosted sugar cookies are still my all-time favorite recipe. They taste just like the lofthouse sugar cookies you can get in the grocery store, but better.”

Flourless Nutella Cake from Only Taste Matters

“This is one of my most popular posts. Let’s face nothing is better than Nutella.”

Crock Pot Potato Soup from My Plant Based Family

“This potato soup recipe is really easy to make, only a few ingredients, and absolutely delicious. It’s both gluten-free and dairy-free but the simplicity is what makes it a winner.”
