Gluten free desserts can be just as tasty as their gluten-packed cousins. The trick is not to try and make a straight substitute for wheat flour for other flours. When you do this the taste, appearance, and consistency changes completely resulting in a not so tasty treat.

It can be completely overwhelming to start eating a gluten-free diet, and it is of particular importance to be able to eat well as a family – not cook two loads of food, one regular and one gluten free. So here are 25 delicious gluten free deserts covering everything from cookies to pies, to crumbles, and cheesecakes that will appeal to all of the family!
