Need A Sweet Treat? Gluten-Free Desserts That Are Sure To Satisfy

For many people, their day’s not complete without just a little sweet treat. However, if you avoid gluten, your possibilities used to be limited. There are now new options from All But Gluten — decadent brownie bites, delicious snack cakes and chocolate chip cookies so good you’ll swear your mama baked them herself.

Gluten-Free Desserts: Mini Brownies

When you want just a little sweet taste, turn to mini brownies. They’re full of chocolaty goodness and are so moist that they just melt in your mouth. These brownies are great on their own, but if you’re looking for a truly decadent dessert, consider paring them with some freshly whipped cream and fresh raspberries.

Gluten-Free Desserts: Snack Cakes

Snack cakes bring up memories of childhood, but these cakes have one distinct difference when compared to ones of your youth — they’re gluten-free! Choose from either vanilla or chocolate cake with a vanilla crème filling that’s dipped in a chocolate coating. Each snack cake is individually wrapped, but most people don’t want to stop at just one.

Gluten-Free Desserts: Chocolate Chip Cookies

There’s nothing like a cookie just out of the oven, that is, unless it’s one that you didn’t have to bake yourself! Instead grab a bag of gluten-free chocolate chip cookies from your grocery store’s fresh bakery aisle and you won’t have to worry about the gluten when enjoying your chocolate chip cookie.

Planning A Party? Don’t Forget The Gluten-Free Appetizers

If you’re throwing a party and you have guests who eat a gluten-free diet, having a few gluten-free appetizers is a thoughtful touch. What happens if you don’t eat a gluten-free diet? Many hosts are left scrambling to understand just what their guests can eat. If you don’t have experience with gluten-free appetizers, consider one of these choices.

Gluten-Free Appetizers: Hummus And Toast Points                

Hummus is a great gluten-free food! It’s made out of sesame oil, tahini and cooked chickpeas that have been whirled in a food processor. Consider adding roasted garlic or roasted red peppers for a truly one of a kind flavor, but don’t forget something to dip into the hummus! All But Gluten has a whole grain loaf of bread that makes great toast points and the two combined create a unique and hearty appetizer.

Gluten-Free Appetizers: Ham, Pickle And Cream Cheese Roll Ups

If you’ve never combined sliced ham, fluffy cream cheese and a dill pickle spear, you’re missing out! This is a popular, yet simple gluten-free appetizer. To make them, simply smear a layer of cream cheese on a ham slice and them wrap the entire thing around a dill pickle spear. Slice them into bite sized pieces and spear with a toothpick and you’ve got a delicious and easy to make treat.

When your party planning includes foods from All But Gluten, it’s easy to treat your guests to gluten-free appetizers. To find a local store that carries the line of All But Gluten products, please click here.

Recent Study Shows Gluten-Free Diets May Help People With Celiac Disease Fight Broken Bones

People with Celiac Disease have a higher risk of hip fractures and other broken bones. It’s thought that this is due to the long-term damage to the intestines caused by eating foods that contain gluten. However, a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism suggests that following gluten-free diets may be able to reverse the damage and reduce the risk of hip fractures and other broken bones.

About The Study And Gluten-Free Diets

The study followed more than 7000 people with Celiac Disease. Although it’s established that following gluten-free diets can reduce the risk of hip fractures, researchers weren’t sure if the risk continued after gluten-free diets were started. The study proved that gluten-free diets allowed the mucous membranes in the intestine to heal, reducing the risk of broken bones.
