If you are gluten-free and you are sick of bland and tasteless desserts, then you need to try out these fall-inspired desserts now! They may be gluten-free but they are full of flavor! Grab your spatulas and let’s get baking!
Maple Pumpkin Custard
This is one of the most incredibly easy desserts to make, it requires no cooking and the only strenuous labor that you have to do is whisk all the ingredients in a bowl until it is smooth. All that you will need is pumpkin puree, coconut milk, and a whole heap of spice, any that seems festive and tickles your fancy. Pop it into some ramekins and keep it in the fridge. Done and done, it does not get any more simple than that. This custard is something that you can make at any time at the drop of a hat. If you have spontaneous guests drop by, you can whip this up in no time and you will have some very happy guests on your hands. If you present it well, with a dollop of whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, you will have everyone thinking that you spent a lot more time on this than you actually did. It’s all in the presentation.
Any recipe that includes ginger and other spices, screams fall! Grate some fresh ginger and add it into your plan cupcake recipe, if you are feeling particularly festive throw in some molasses. This will please anyone, no matter if they are gluten-free or not. A big tip when adding fresh ginger into a dessert recipe is to combine it by itself with the sugar. This will ensure that all the freshly grated ginger is coated with sugar to balance out the sharp taste of the ginger. The sharp taste of the ginger with the cream cheese frosting is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. You will be able to eat one hundred.
Maple Custard Tart
This one can be a little bit more complicated, that is if you feel the urge to make your own pie crust. If you choose to skip this step the only things you will need for the filling is cream, eggs, milk, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and cornstarch. The final touch for presentation is some candied pecans for the top. You can choose to make this dessert as a whole tart or mini individual tarts. This is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts
Once again there is no shame in purchasing pre-made tart shells, this is an amazing short cut to take. Once you have prepared your shells, all you need for the filling is cashews, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, vanilla and your fav fall spices to taste. Add a dash of salt to bring out the flavor. Not only are these super cute, but they are a classic dessert for fall. Just because you are gluten-free, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on desserts.
Apple & Blackberry Crumble
Now, this is an all-time fav of mine when the weather gets cooler. To ensure that this one is gluten-free, make sure to use gluten-free oats for the crumble, along with sugar, butter, salt, and coconut flour. For the filling, you will need apples, blackberries, salt, tangerine juice and zest, sugar, nutmeg, and coconut flour. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side and you have got yourself a delicious couch dessert that you will be craving night and night again.
