Notes and Substitutions

While many desserts are naturally gluten-free, there are still many ingredients you need to be aware of, some more obvious than others. Here are a few ingredients that contain gluten and great substitutions for them:

  • All-purpose flour – Use gluten-free flour substitutes like almond flour, rice flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, or a blend of these flour.
  • Oats – While oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often cross-contaminated with ingredients that contain gluten during processing. So, if you want to avoid gluten, make sure to use oats labeled as gluten-free.
  • Store-bought processed ingredients like Oreos, crackers, puff pastries, Rice Krispies, and other cereals typically have gluten. Always check the label and choose gluten-free brands.
  • Pie crusts are usually made from flour, and cheesecake crusts are often made from Graham crackers or crushed Oreos. Buy gluten-free crusts or make your own version at home!

Gluten-free Baking Tips

The general rule when substituting all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour is to use a 1:1 ratio unless otherwise mentioned in the recipe.

Use leavening agents like baking powder or baking soda to help gluten-free batters and doughs rise properly.

Gluten-free flour can sometimes lack the elasticity and binding properties of wheat flour. To fix this, try adding binders like xantham gum or guar gum to improve texture and structure.

Always check the label of the ingredients you use to make sure that your desserts are gluten-free!

FAQs

Can I modify a dessert and make it gluten-free?

Making desserts gluten-free is as easy as pie. You can definitely adjust most recipes and make them gluten-free. You’ll achieve the same delicious result if you use the correct ratios of gluten-free substitutions.

What desserts naturally don’t contain gluten?

A few examples are ice cream, cobblers, pavlova, chocolate truffles, macarons, fudge, and puddings. But it still depends if there are any flavor additions!
