If you follow a gluten-free diet, dessert might seem like a struggle sometimes. But eating gluten-free doesn't mean you don't have any options. In fact, not only are there tons of sweets that are naturally gluten-free, like flourless chocolate cake and pudding, but there are also lots of recipes out there that swap the usual all-purpose flour for alternatives.
Here are 27 gluten-free recipes that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Juicy, fruit-filled desserts like crisps and cobblers can easily be made gluten-free by swapping the flour in the topping for things like gluten-free oats, almond meal, and rice flour. Other fruit desserts like cheesecake-stuffed strawberries and sour cream-topped berries are naturally gluten-free.
