Yay for my favorite holiday of the year! Halloween is fast approaching and, if you're planning a party or just looking for delicious ways to get festive, I've made it easy for you by rounding up my best gluten free Halloween treats.
As always, these recipes are easy to make and extra delicious -- no one will be able to tell that they are gluten free (and eggless)!
And speaking of festive treats, you can find plenty more in my NEW cookbook, Just As Tasty: Gluten-Free & Eggless Baking Through the Seasons. I know holidays and celebrations can be overwhelming when you have food allergies to be mindful of.
With this book, I'm eliminating that intimidation and bringing the joy back into the kitchen! Every single recipe is photographed and super easy to follow... very similar to what you are used to seeing here on the blog!
But without further ado, let's dig right into some of my favorite fun and spooky Halloween treats and desserts!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Recipes
1. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip
This particular Halloween treat is always a fan favorite around here, and I love it because it's no-bake and only calls for 6 ingredients! Dip gluten free cookies, pretzels, or apple slices... the possibilities are endless.
2. Pumpkin Pie Truffles
These little no-bake truffles are so fun to make with kids! We're using delicious pumpkin flavor, a bit of cream cheese, some gluten free rice cereal and, of course, lots of melted chocolate.
3. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll
While I realize that roll cakes can seem intimidating and complicated, I promise that this one really isn't! I talk you through all the steps and share my pro tips for making the baking and assembly as straightforward as can be.
4. Pumpkin Pancakes
Maybe rather than planning for a Halloween party, you actually are looking for fun ways to make the day more festive for your little ones. How about starting the day with gluten free pumpkin pancakes?
5. Glazed Pumpkin Scones
If you're really looking to wow your guests, then I suggest whipping up my gluten free pumpkin scones. These little guys are topped with a pumpkin spice glaze and are oh-so-irresistible.
6. Soft Pumpkin Cookies
You simply can't go wrong with extra soft pumpkin cookies, especially when topped with a cream cheese frosting.
Gluten Free Apple Recipes
7. Baked Apple Cider Donuts
Because there's more to Fall than just pumpkin, am I right? These apple cider donuts are a classic treat that should be included in every Halloween spread.
8. Cinnamon Apple Monkey Bread
Monkey bread is also a fun finger food for a party. This particular recipe also features a gooey caramel sauce because, why not?
9. Apple Blondies
I'm a HUGE fan of blonde brownies, so I knew I had to develop a recipe that incorporated apples and Fall flavors. These bars are a nice, portable snack idea for a party.
10. Caramel Apple Dip
I'm thinking you should also serve up this caramel apple dip alongside the pumpkin cream cheese dip. This, too, is super simple and SO creamy and rich.
Festive Gluten Free Halloween Treats
11. Lofthouse Frosted Sugar Cookies
If you've never tried a Lofthouse cookie, you are missing out. They are incredibly soft, cakey, and super sweet frosted cookies typically found at the grocery store. My version is homemade, so you know it's even better.
12. Easy Halloween Cupcakes
This is another recipe that would be fun to make with kids. I've taken my gluten free chocolate cupcakes and made them extra festive by piping on orange, yellow, and white candy corn style buttercream frosting.
13. Halloween Sugar Cookies
This gluten free sugar cookie recipe will forever be my go-to for any holiday. Grab some Halloween cookie cutters and gel food coloring, and it's perfect for spooky season.
14. Halloween Chocolate Bark
And we're rounding out the list with yet another FUN and EASY no-bake Halloween treat: chocolate bark! Anything goes here, so grab your favorite Halloween candy, gluten free cookies, sprinkles, whatever your heart desires.
