25 Gluten-Free Desserts You'll Actually Want To Eat

These dessert recipes are delicious first, gluten free second.

According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, over 3 million Americans are allergic to gluten. This can make certain meals, especially those shared with others who aren't on a gluten-free diet, seem incredibly frustrating. It seems that adhering to this diet is never more stressful than come dessert time. Most cookies, cakes and other baked goods include flour in some form, but there is a whole world of other desserts that either don't contain gluten to begin with, or can be easily adapted to substitute almond meal, or other gluten-free ingredients. Think mousses, meringues, baked fruits, ice creams, sorbets, etc. -- even your friends who include gluten in their diets will be lining up for seconds.

In our travels to find the most delicious gluten-free dessert recipes, we discovered that more and more bloggers are including a gluten-free section in their recipe indexes. While you all know we're no fans of fad diets around here (seriously, there is evidence that going totally gluten free if you aren't intolerant of it can actually be bad for you), we also want to make sure that everyone around the table gets something delicious, sweet and satisfying at the end of the meal.
