If you have medical or personal reasons to avoid gluten, you might find it’s difficult to avoid. It seems it’s in everything, especially foods that are packaged or frozen. So what can you do? One of the best things you can do is make your own food whenever possible. It’s usually healthier for you anyway and then you know exactly what’s going into it. There are now more gluten-free foods found in the local grocer and even on the menus of your favorite restaurants but it’s still typically going to be healthier to make it yourself at home. Also, your choices of snacks and desserts are often more limited when you have to go gluten-free. That’s why I have compiled a great list of 20 gluten-free snacks and desserts from some of my favorite sites across the web and put them here in one place for your snacking pleasure.
Check them out below:

This is a great list. Our family is transitioning to gluten free and figuring out what we can eat has definitely been a challenge.
I love the list of gluten free desserts available. A lot of people including myself have tried to switch to a healthier lifestyle and I LOVE my sweets and this is my biggest struggle. I will defiantly check out a few of these options for alternatives!

I am forever looking for good snacks for my little guy, and with allergies in my extended family – gluten-free one’s are even better! Thank you for this list!
We were consistently gluten free for about a year and paleo for a while before that. We are trying to get back into the gluten free groove because it seems like we all feel better off of it. Thanks for some delicious looking recipes to try!
