Wheat free dessert recipes
Wheat free or gluten free desserts are often an impossible dream in a restaurant. But at home or a dinner party it need not be the same, with a bit of effort and imagination wheat free desserts can be served up that will appease everyone at the dinner table.
note:Unfortunately if you suffer from celiac disease not all of the recipes on this site are gluten free—some may contain barley or rye, but they are all wheat free. Also, not all celiacs can tolerate gluten free oats due to the avenin they contain (see FAQ - Are oats safe to eat on a wheat or gluten free diet?). However, some of these recipes can be adapted with care and experience using alternative gluten free flours although the taste will be slightly different in the resulting recipes.
