Best Gluten Free, Egg Free Desserts

If you have one, you seem to have multiple....allergies that is. So if you need to accommodate multiple allergens, here are my favorite Cheatin' Wheat recipes you can use to make gluten free, egg free desserts.

Raspberry Oat Bar

This recipe was submitted by one of our customers - Katie U. of Littleton. All we can say is YUM! Actually, a big thank you as well. These gluten free raspberry oat bars are delicious, easy to make, great for picnics or parties, and are super kid-friendly. Did I mention the recipes easily converts to dairy-free as well? Make a batch today, and the next, and the next......

Whoopie Pie

Whoopie Pies were the next big thing, ya know, right after the cupcake craze and macaroon madness. We don't know if they are still hip, but we do know they are always decadent! We also know our version is a 2015 Food and Beverage Industry Award winner. So, whether you buy some from us or make a batch yourself, we know you are going to love 'em.

Banoffee Tart

Silly name, seriously delicious dessert. The name Banoffee is a portmanteau, constructed from the words "banana" and "toffee". Once you know that, it is obvious what ingredients make up this gluten free tart. You have to use a fully baked gluten free crust, but then this dessert is a no-bake, no-fuss, easy to assemble treat.

Pecan Snowballs

I know these cookies as Sand Cookies. So aptly named for their very fine, crumbly-yet-melting texture. Danielle C, who kindly submitted this recipe, called them her Christmas Pride and Joy. You may call them Russian Tea Cakes or Mexican Wedding Cookies. Regardless of the name, these gluten free Pecan Snowballs are a classic holiday recipe. However, I think these nut-filled cookies are scrumptious all year 'round.

Blueberry Pineapple Icebox Pie

Icebox pies remind me of my childhood. They are simple, delicious and perfect for hot summer days. Now, I have to be honest, there is always a part of me that wants to "sophisticate up" these desserts. And after hemming and hawing over the virtues of real whipped cream versus Cool Whip, canned fruit fillings versus fillings I make, I end up sticking with the original. Why? Simplicity and tradition.

Rocky Road Bars

Rocky Road is a unique flavor combination that originated in the late 1920s. It is credited to the partnership between Joseph Edy and William Dreyer, then owners of Edy's Grand ice cream (yes, this did also lead to the Dreyer's Grand ice cream brand). "Rocky Road" now shows up in a variety of sweets from ice cream to cakes to cookies. However, our favorite is no-bake confection that has everything - crunchy, chewy, salty, gooey, marshmallowy addictive! We have made a bit of a switch and changed out the traditional graham crackers for gluten free pretzels.

Blueberry Scones 

A warm gluten free scone. Yum! They have a lovely crisp, golden crust with a rich, buttery flavor and light, fluffy texture. They are delicious served with Devonshire Cream, butter or jam. Although blueberry is a classic, scones are such a simple vehicle to make any flavor you want.

Tuxedo Tart

Surprisingly easy to make, this gluten free Tuxedo tart is a real stunner. Yes, it is as sophisticated as it sounds combining a crispy gluten free crust with a white chocolate and bittersweet chocolate ganache. Oh my!



We visited with my husband's nephew and his wife Kathie Stinson on Saturday, 11/05/16. Kathy gave me exciting and wonderful information about her journey to a gluten free life. I had been off gluten for approx. 7 months, more or less as a last resort to ease my digestion problems that had plagued me from my youth. I had one slip-up in the 7 months. I had felt so good for 4-5 months without any gluten in my diet that I "gave in" to a regular pizza at a new restaurant. Tempting fate or needing 100% confirmation about my gluten free life, I pushed the envelope with disastrous consequences.

After visiting with Kathie and hearing of the success she and Lexie have created in their kitchen/laboratory I am excited to have a easier and healthier time in the kitchen.

Thank you again Kathie for all the info on CheatinWheat. My order is going in today.

Also, thank you from Uncle Eddie and I for all the dedication and love you and your Eddie are exhibiting for Bev and Mel.

Warmest Aloha, Aunt Lynnette
