Recipes for Gluten-Free Fall Baking

By Megan Myers, October 18, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

Fall weather is a great invitation to start baking, but many of the treats that define the flavors of the season are pies and other baked goods. If you or your loved ones follow a gluten-free diet, you’ll need to get a little more creative.

We recently talked about what gluten free means at Whole Foods Market®, and while I don’t eat a gluten-free diet, I have many friends who do. Thankfully, a great recipe everyone will enjoy is only a few clicks away, whether it’s a side dish of Gluten-Free Cornbread or delicious Spiced Baked Apples for dessert.

Do you have reason to bake gluten free? Check out some of these options:

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Glaze Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Flourless Brownies Gluten-Free Flaxseed Muffins

Gluten-Free Italian Cornmeal Cake Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Psst: we’ve also got tips to give you a head start on holiday feasting the gluten free way.

This was amazing I eat gluten free and almost dread the holidays coming at times because I can't eat all the treats. Thank you. Take care! J

I need a gluten-free stuffing- Either a recipe or a package that I could add vegies to would be great. Thanks

I love baking simple gluten-free peanut butter cookies- 1 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1 cup natural PB...Yum!!! And they take only 10 minutes to make.

I've been doing a lot of fun gluten-free baking lately, especially with seasonal flavors (like my Pumpkin Spice Latte Oatmeal) for breakfast and dessert items! They're all on my blog: http://www.treatswithatwist.com

Two of us in my family have recently been diagnosed borderline gluten intolerant. Three weeks on a gluten-free diet has been a relevation. I feel so much better, No stuffy nose and puffy eyes in the morning and no twinges in my hands. I'm not quite a neophyte about gluten-free cooking but I really appreciate the recipes because I'm in the middle of changing the entire way I eat. At the holidays, that's daunting.

We just found out our 16 year old son has wheat, dairy, sugar, fructose and corn allergies. Working with Dr. Colbert & Dr. Gordon Crozier & Divine Health to balance his body to function normally again. We gotta get some great recipes to make. Gotta show him food can still taste great!

@ Barbara ... my family makes a great cornbread dressing without flour. I would suggest you follow a measurement guide for a normal recipe but make a few changes. I'm sorry I don't really measure with this particular home version. But here it goes Bake your cornbread first without flour and add a tsp of sage, bake as normal. Bring to a boil, (then simmer while preparing) giblets (turkey neck, heart, gizzards) in a small pot of water just to cover them. saute onion and celery in a skillet/pan w/ 2-3 tbsp butter til translucent, pour about 1/2 to 1 cup turkey stock/drippings in skillet/pan and simmer. After cornbread has baked let cool about 10 min then break up in bowl, add about another tsp sage mix well, srambled 1 egg add to the mixture, mix, then pour the vegetables in bowl and mix. ensure you have a moist but not soupy mixture (you might want to taste it to see if you have enough sage, if too much sage your dressing will turn green so be light on the sage but not too light). bake 350 degree oven til light brown. I hope you are successful. It's a great recipe.

The cornmeal cake might be lighter if the eggs are separated and the whites are beaten. The next time I think I'll try half corn flour and half cornmeal, too. It's a good cake! I really like the orange and almond combination.
