the 3 gluten-free dessert recipes to die for

Avoiding gluten should never keep you away from the scrumptious wonders of the world of desserts! In this article, we’ve brought you three amazing gluten-free recipes to boost your dessert game. Let’s get into it.

1. Gluten-free brownies

What’s better than fudgy, rich, chocolate brownies? Pair them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and what more could you want for dessert?


You’ll need;

  • ·        250 grams of cubed unsalted butter, with some more for the tin
  • ·        250 grams of dark chocolate,
  • ·        4 eggs,
  • ·        300 grams of caster sugar,
  • ·        half a teaspoon of vanilla extract,
  • ·        100g sieved flour (gluten-free),
  • ·        60 grams of cocoa powder,
  • ·        Half a teaspoon sea salt,
  • ·        And 150 grams of chopped milk chocolate.


  • ·        Heat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Butter a 30 by 20 centimeters non-stick tin and line its base with baking parchment (non-stick).
  • ·        Fill up a small saucepan with water, bring it to simmer, and put a nicely fitting heatproof bowl on top. Add the chocolate and butter, and let it melt over low heat. Stir it occasionally, and finally remove from heat and let it cool.
  • ·        Beat the sugar and eggs together with an electric whisk for about 8 minutes until it’s thick enough to leave a trail. Then, bring in the cooled down vanilla and chocolate, and add flour, cocoa, and salt. Lastly, follow it all up with chocolate chunks, and you’ve got your brownie batter prepared.
  • ·        Pour it into the lined tin and place it in the center of your pre-heated oven for about 30 to 35 minutes.
  • ·        Once out of the oven, let it cool down, and cut into 12 pieces.

2. Gluten-free cotton candy cookies

Here’s a rare one! Cookies that taste just like cotton candy—a wondrous gluten-free combo.


You’ll need 3 egg whites, an eighth of a teaspoon of salt, three and a half tablespoons of raspberry Jell-O, ¾ cup of sugar, one tablespoon vinegar, and sprinkles.


  • ·        Preheat your oven to about 250 degrees
  • ·        Beat the egg whites with salt until it starts to foam (about a minute)
  • ·        Add raspberry Jell-o and sugar as you beat the mixture until it stands in peaks
  • ·        Add vinegar and continue mixing gently
  • ·        Pipe or spoon the mixture into small circles on a parchment-covered cookie sheet.

(Note: For piping, use a zip-lock bag snipped at its end.)

  • ·        Sprinkle the sprinkles on top.
  • ·        Bake it at 250 degrees for about 25 minutes and turn the oven off to allow it to sit for about 20 minutes.
  • ·        Finally, remove from the oven and allow your gluten-free cotton candy cookies to cool down, and that’s it!

If you’re a cotton candy lover and liked this recipe, make sure you try cotton candy gluten free cupcakes – they’re even better!
