The Ultimate Guide To Naturally Gluten Free Recipes

The Ultimate Guide To Naturally Gluten Free Recipes

The Very Best From Around The Web

Of the tens of thousands (more?) food blogs on the web, it’s a fair guess that most of them are not gluten free food blogs. But plenty of general food blogs are rich in naturally gluten free recipes, often by accident. Here, I’ve brought them together in one ultimate guide!

This is primarily a baking blog. I consider it my mandate to provide recipes for the foods that you’ve been missing, now that you’re gluten free. That usually means baking recipes. I do get asked from time to time to provide more recipes for main dishes, and I happily oblige when I can (there are 70+ recipes in that blog category). But there’s a whole other universe of naturally gluten free recipes out there on the web by myriad talented food bloggers who aren’t the least bit gluten free. Since I concentrate my work mostly on recipes that are naturally gluten-y, but not necessarily my whole life, I’ve gathered together the very best naturally gluten free recipes from all over the web. Some of these recipes are ones I’ve found on the food blogs I read regularly, others from frantic last-minute Pinterest searches. I’ve mostly stayed away from corporate food sites, since personally I prefer to get my online recipes from food blogs.

Some recipes on this list need a gentle tweak to be naturally gluten free, and I’ve indicated as much in parentheses after the relevant links. For example, when a recipe suggests a granola topping, I remind you to use gluten free granola. Or when a recipe calls for soy sauce, I remind you to use tamari. Nothing more than that.

The recipes in this guide have been placed into 5 categories: Main Dishes, Appetizers/Dips/Sides, Breakfast, Snacks, and Desserts. I intend to grow this list over time, so if you’re a non-gluten-free food blogger and you would like me to include one of your naturally gluten free recipes in this guide, please leave a comment below and I’ll be sure to take a look!

    The Energy Cookies by Cooking Classy has whole wheat flour. Sure not GF.

      Charlotte Moore whole wheat flour is not gluten free. If you make those, use Nicole’s 1 to 1 flour or any other Gluten Free flour you like. Good catch

      You’re 100% right, Charlotte!! I’ve removed them from the list. So sorry about that. I’ve gone through and rechecked all the other links in that category, and they’re all safe. Thank you for pointing that out!!

    This is just an amazing list! Thank you for putting it together and making our work in finding all the good food easier.
    I’m a danish glutenfree foodblogger and I use your side as inspiration very often. Your pictures are really beautiful and I take much inspiration from how you present your food. Making a list like this in danish is now on my to- do list ;)

      oh and almost everything I make from the well fed blog is gluten free. It’s technically paleo but it’s good wholesome food. I also like Beard & Bonnet she does a lot of naturally gluten free items…. :)

        Good to know, Jennifer! I definitely know Beard & Bonnet, but have only a passing familiarity with Well Fed. Thanks!

    Great links! Can’t wait to try the home made snickers bars…just sayin. My kids are beyond excited every time i tell them I’m making something from this blog. It’s helped bring the taste of gluten comfort (while remaining gluten free) back for my 6 and 7 year old who haven’t been able to eat it for two years since my son got sick, so thank you for that! My daughter loves the deep dish pizza recipe and is convinced that it “even tastes better than the gluten kind.” I know this comment isn’t strictly about this post, but I wanted to be able to say thank you and that I will be ordering your book. Cheers!

      That’s so great, Caitebird! Your daughter sounds like a genius, by the way.
