A Few Gluten-Free Easter Recipes

Don’t let a holiday like Easter scare you just because you’re gluten free. There is plenty of delicious gluten-free food to enjoy. Here are a few gluten-free recipes that will help make this Easter a tasty one.

Gluten-Free Easter Recipes (Hot Cross Buns) | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

Hot Cross Buns are traditionally served on Good Friday, but they’re great any time.

If you want to make your own Easter treats for your kids, here are two homemade recipes that they’re sure to love. If your child can’t have peanuts, substitute another nut butter or sunflower seed butter.

If you’re looking for Easter dinner dessert ideas, everyone loves both of these:

As for Easter dinner itself, it’s pretty easy to make that gluten free. Remember to read labels, and especially beware of ham glaze which often contains gluten.

Gluten-Free Easter Recipes (Green Beans Almandine) | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

For side dishes, avoid casseroles that use cream of chicken (or mushroom or celery) soup. You can make your own cream soup, but I prefer skipping the casserole and making something like these green beans almandine.

Gluten-Free Easter Recipes (Gold Potato Casserole) | The Gluten-Free Homemaker

Instead of scalloped potatoes, try my mom’s gold potato casserole (if you eat dairy) or roasted red potatoes. If you want a low carb dish, go for mashed cauliflower.
