Gluten-Free Easter Desserts
1. Gluten-Free Carrot Cake – Real Food Real Deals
This is what I would call a fairly normal carrot cake except it’s made with gluten-free flour and uses maple syrup instead of sugar in the cake. I guess I think it’s fairly normal because it’s very much like the carrot cake I learned to love when I was growing up. My mother and one of my sisters love carrot cake. I think it’s interesting that my grandmother never made carrot cake. When my Mom got a recipe from my aunt she loved it from the start and never stopped. My grandmother sure never knew what she missed out on.
2. Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars – Cook Craft Love
This is the easy way to make sugar cookies that’s for sure. All you do is make the dough and bake it in a 9×13 pan, then frost them and cut them into squares and serve them. So much easier than rolling out the dough and cutting it into shapes and baking. Then doing that over and over again. Hate that, this is the solution. You get the great taste without all the time-consuming work. I like the pretty blue coloring frosting but you could make any color you choose.
3. Peeps Popcorn – Grain Changer
Popcorn – Peeps – White Chocolate Chips – Cooking Spray
Seriously, isn’t the cutest little treat for Easter? You won’t believe how easy it is to make too. They’re really fun to make too. The most fun is watching the poor little chicks melt into oblivion. Poor things, but all the better for me. Make sure to read the tips suggested. Like using a lot of cooking spray on your hands and utensils before mixing the mixture with the popcorn. There is a great tip for storage too. Always store in a paper bag instead of plastic. Plastic will make it go soft and stale much faster.
4. Sugar Cookies – A Dash of Megnut
Here are some traditional sugar cookies, except these are gluten-free, with royal icing. Royal icing is the cool icing you see on cookies that goes hard when it’s set up. The cookies and flakey and buttery and you won’t even be able to tell they are gluten-free. Don’t these cookies just scream Happy Easter. Of course, you don’t have to make yours this fancy but if it doesn’t scare you then go for it. They are going to taste good no matter what they look like.
5. Easter Egg Chocolate Covered Strawberries – Seeing Dandy
Since I’ve had to go gluten-free and have to stay away from the traditional cookies, cakes and usual Easter treats, I try to find desserts that are naturally gluten-free. These chocolate covered strawberries fill that void and actually a little bit healthy at least. You won’t’ believe how easy and actually fun they are to make. Don’t they just capture the essence of Easter? I think they are so cute!
6. Cereal Treat Easter Eggs – Katrina’s Kitchen
Butter – Marshmallows – Fruity Pebbles Cereal
Did you know that Kellogg’s Rice Krispie cereal is NOT gluten-free any more? It used to be but now it is not gluten-free. So check the ingredients on the box before you buy. They are not gluten-free because they have a small amount of malt flavoring which is made from barley . Products with barley malt flavoring and wheat starch are not gluten-free.
The good news is that Post’s Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free and with all of the different colors, they can make a cute and easy gluten-free Easter treat. For last years party, my mom made the fruity pebbles cereal Easter eggs. They were really easy and fun to make. She just used the Rice Krispie treat recipe but used fruity pebbles instead. She bought a couple of large size plastic Easter eggs and used them for a mold to make them into a perfect egg shape. She may have used some cooking spray once in a while to keep them from sticking to the plastic egg. They were so quick and easy to make.
7. “Egg”-in-a-Nest Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites – Averie Cooks
Talk about easy, you don’t even have to turn on the stove or the oven. You don’t even have to dirty the food processor either. You can make these in about 10 minutes or so in a single bowl. These remind me of elementary school. For school, the lunch ladies made these almost every day, minus the almonds of course. The problem was the lunch ladies seriously, no exaggerating made them almost every day. Rare was the day when they didn’t make them. To make an understatement, I got sick of them. But now many years later, I have fond memories and kinda miss them. I think I’ll make these for our Easter party this year.
8. Lemon Cookies Nests – Fearless Dining
These cute little nests are pretty fun and easy to make. You just mix up the cookie dough, mold it around the inside of a muffin pan. Then you bake it and when they’re cool you decorate them. You start by putting some coconut in the bottom, then frosting around the outside edge. Put some jelly beans and a little peeps chick on top. I think the kids could have a lot of fun helping to make these. Making them could be a lot more fun than eating them. Well, maybe not.
9. No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Nests – Joy Food Sunshine
You can turn your favorite no-bake cookie into a fun Easter party treat. Just mold them into the shape of a nest and put your favorite candy eggs inside. It’s the best of both worlds. Cookies and candy, YUM YUM! They also make a nice object lesson for a homeschool unit when you’re studying about nests. They’re so easy to make the kids can make them themselves. Win Win.
