15 Delicious Gluten Free Desserts - NO special ingredients!

A collection of easy, inexpensive, gluten free dessert recipes that require no special ingredients at all! by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Easy, inexpensive, gluten free dessert recipes that require no special ingredients at all! These are my go-to desserts anytime I'm working outside of my own kitchen, and they are the recipes I give to anyone who asks for simple and uncomplicated gluten free desserts.

Years before I started blogging, when I first started baking gluten free treats for a friend of mine, the recipes I found were completely overwhelming. Special flours, starches, and gums, careful treatment of the doughs, delicate baking instructions, and confusing instructions, all combined to make me toss more than a few cookies into the trash.

I promise you that NONE of these recipes are like that. These are some of the easiest gluten free desserts we make and every last one of them can be made with ingredients that are likely already in your pantry. No specialty flours, tools, or skills required!

Many times, when you need a gluten free dessert, it's for a dinner guest or a friend, and it just doesn't make sense to buy several different specialty flours just to make a single recipe. (On the other hand, if you plan to do more than the occasional gluten free baked goods, I have a huge index of gluten free sweets and treats that we love. Try the simple recipes below, and then dive on in and pick up the flours for the rest of them!)

This collection of desserts is perfect for any occasion; a special dinner or a gift for a friend. I bake gluten free at least 90% of the time and I can happily promise you that no one will realize they are eating a gluten free treat. Several of these recipes are also naturally diary free as well. Enjoy!

CANDIES

SPECIAL NOTE: Some of the recipes above contain oats. Most of the people I bake for have no trouble at all with consuming regular old fashioned oats, however, some individuals have a much higher sensitivity to gluten and oats are not safe for them. Ask first, or simply buy certified GF oats if you are uncertain.

Brownie Ice Cream with Chewy Brownie Chunks

Homemade Brownie Ice Cream with Chewy Brownie Chunks recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
If you can imagine your favorite homemade brownies transformed into a smooth and creamy bowl of ice cream, then you have a glimpse of the awesomeness that is Brownie Ice Cream. This dessert was an enormous hit with our friends a few weeks ago and there wasn't a bite left the next day.

Yes, I did serve brownie ice cream over warm brownies. Too much decadence? Not at all! (Is there ever such a thing as too much chocolate?!)
