Top 5 Gluten-Free Desserts

Gluten-free desserts don’t have to be tasteless or boring! From no-bake peanut butter bliss balls to classic bananas foster, there are delicious gluten-free treats out there to satisfy any sweet tooth without breaking the bank in ingredients or taste!

No matter the reason behind your gluten-free eating – an allergy or simply trying to limit consumption – these tasty treats will surely satisfy all at the table.

Chocolate Meringue Layer Cake

This spectacular dessert makes an eye-catching centerpiece for any table. Light and airy meringues flavored with cocoa combine beautifully with vanilla whipped cream for an irresistibly delightful dessert that is gluten-free as well. Plus, using up some leftover chocolate from holiday festivities!

Preheat the oven to 275degF and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, drawing two 6-inch circles on each sheet before flipping over.

Combine egg whites and vinegar in a large, clean bowl and whisk until foamy peaks appear; gradually beat in sugar mixture over one minute.

Sift cocoa powder through a fine-mesh sieve into egg whites; fold to incorporate. Divide batter among prepared pans, and use a toothpick or skewer to swirl in chocolate (in as little or much quantity as desired).

Bake the meringues until they are lightly browned and firm, approximately one hour. Turn off oven, leaving meringue layers to cool for 3 to 4 hours (or overnight) before spreading whipped cream evenly over all layers shortly before serving; finish it off with fresh fruit if desired.

Coffee-Almond Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice cream sandwiches are an easy and tasty treat that everyone can enjoy together, from family to friends. Our version features a soft coffee sponge stuffed with creamy no-churn coffee ice cream and an irresistibly crunchy chocolate almond shell – ideal for dairy free diners alike!

Whisk heavy cream until firm peaks form (without overmixing). Gently fold in condensed milk and espresso syrup before rewhipping to soft peaks before pouring it all into an 8×8 loaf pan and refrigerating overnight for best results.

Tillamook Coffee Almond Fudge Ice Cream is rich and smooth with an irresistibly delectable fudge ripple and crunchy almond bits, using only high-quality pasteurized milk from cows not treated with rBST* and cage-free eggs from an ethical farm, along with no artificial flavors, flavors or preservatives to make their delicious product – you can trust Tillamook with every bite!

Cornstarch Brownies

Reducing wheat flour doesn’t have to mean giving up delicious baked goods! These fudgy brownies come together easily with only a handful of ingredients you likely already have stashed away in your pantry.

For extra-moist and fudgy brownies that won’t disappoint, use high-quality unsweetened cocoa powder combined with arrowroot flour (or cornstarch). While these brownies don’t fall under the category of “flourless,” I found they were some of the best I have ever tasted!

Care should be taken not to overbake brownies. While the recipe calls for 30 minutes of baking time, overdoing it will result in overly dry brownies that won’t cut it! Therefore it is advisable to start checking them after 20 minutes, using a skewer that comes out clean or with moist sticky crumbs attached if checking with an oven thermometer.

These brownies make an amazing treat! Not only are they perfect when warm, but they keep well in the refrigerator or freezer, if desired – simply be sure to wrap the brownies tightly before placing in storage!

Panna Cotta

This classic dessert boasts a creamy, almost pudding-like texture and sweet vanilla flavor for easy preparation ahead of time and serves up beautifully alongside fresh fruit.

Panna Cotta (or “cooked cream”) is an Italian dessert with delicate, smooth consistency similar to creme brulee but with only five basic ingredients required to create it.

Start by scattering gelatin over cold milk in a small heatproof bowl and allow to soften for several minutes before heating sugar and cream in a heavy-bottomed saucepan until sugar has completely dissolved and mixture nears boiling point, and adding in your gelatin solution before stirring thoroughly.

Refrigerate for approximately 4 hours before unmolding with a wet knife around its edge and carefully turning onto a plate for unmolding. Top off your creations with fresh berries to complete your masterpiece and enjoy!
