Autumn is upon us, and with the season inevitably comes a new reason to bake – whether that be a school bake sale or birthday celebration, or simply the fact that the weather has cooled enough for you to want to turn on the oven. In preparation for the sweet fall treats bound to come out of that oven, here are some of the best gluten-free baked goods that we can’t wait to make, share and enjoy:
Gluten-Free White Bean Salted Caramel Cupcakes, Ancient Harvest (pictured)
When you think of cupcakes, nutritious ingredients like quinoa and kidney beans may not immediately come to mind – but that’s precisely what makes this recipe so special. The resulting cupcakes are loaded with plant-based protein as well as the decadent flavor of salted caramel.
The Best Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Ambitious Kitchen
This recipe reads like that of a classic chocolate chip cookie, but with one important difference: It calls for quinoa flour, which is naturally gluten-free and helps to create an extra soft and chewy treat. Additionally, it features melted coconut oil, real vanilla and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt.
Quinoa Gingersnap Cookies, Eating Bird Food for Ancient Harvest
Prefer your cookies with a little spice? This recipe’s for you. It took home the grand prize in our 2014 Modern Meal Cook-Off and has become a fan favorite for good reason. These cookies, made with Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour, feature a lovely blend of warming spices and crystallized ginger that is just perfect for fall.
3-Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake, Gimme Some Oven
For many, when it comes to gluten-free baking, the flourless chocolate cake is king. This version, made with only three simple ingredients, is a perfect rendition of the classic dessert. It’s rich, sweet (but not too sweet) and elegant. Serve it at your next dinner party, and expect rave reviews.
Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts, Edible Perspective for Ancient Harvest
Is it pumpkin-flavored everything season yet? We certainly hope so. These tasty baked donuts are a great way to celebrate the seasonal squash, and how well it pairs with spices like nutmeg, ginger and cloves. We also love the combination of gluten-free Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour, almond meal and sweet rice flour, which creates a delightfully chewy texture.
