There’s been a major shift towards tuning into the link between food and how it makes us feel feel, whether it’s learning about gut health or the foods that cause sensitivities and allergic responses. Among my close friends, we’ve got two who are vegan, two who eat gluten free, one who’s dairy free, one friend that is #gf and vegan, and several children that are iffy on nuts. So when it comes to baking for all of them… it’s complicated.
But I love to bake. Especially around the holidays. And since I want everyone to be able to indulge, I’ve spent some time over the last few years building up my arsenal of favorite desserts that don’t include the common offenders: grains and gluten, nuts, dairy, and eggs.
Let me tell you, even with all the amazing food bloggers out there, it still isn’t easy to find allergy-friendly holiday desserts that look delicious and taste good. So I’m pleased to share these 10 of my favorites that are sure to make your vegan, grain-free and nut-free friends really happy.
