Weekly Roundup: Gluten Free Goodies!

April 13, 2012

I’m not sure what it is exactly… perhaps it is the warm weather and spring air, the birds chirping every morning when I wake up, the emerging green of the landscape… Whatever it is, something has seriously set off my sweet tooth!

Many people say you should suppress those unhealthy cravings but hey, sometimes you’ve just got to give in! For this reason I have chosen to select a sweet list of gluten free goodies for this week’s weekly round up.

Now, to be more specific, this isn’t just any list of sweet treats. I searched high and low to find only the best, most succulent and divine looking goodies to truly satisfy my craving, and yours as well! This roundup consists of moist cocoa-filled brownies, not-so-traditional cakes and a few simple treats that can be thrown together at a moment’s notice (maybe even during those late night snack attacks!)

Have I triggered your sweet tooth enough? On to the round up!

Salted Caramel Brownies – These look every bit as mouth watering as their description! Well worth the work needed for homemade brownies and well worth the work needed to hide a few for your own personal stash (heehee).


Gluten Free Pink Lemonade Cupcakes – Who could turn down a sweet treat that captures the essence of spring with pink lemonade!

Giant Cookie Cake – Not only is this cookie cake gluten free but it’s allergy free as well! Make your kids smile this weekend and surprise them with a giant cookie!

Chocolate Chocolate truffles – With only four ingredients, how could you possibly turn down a recipe for homemade truffles!?

Decadent 60 Second CocoaChia “Milkshake” – This one is definitely outside of the [bread]box but is healthy and super quick for a treat perfect any time of the day.

Have fun drooling over this sweet collection, and remember, it’s always okay to give into a craving, as long as it is in moderation of course!
