Christmas is pretty much upon us, and while I’d have loved to have loads more gluten free Christmas recipes for you, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my favourite recipes from other bloggers as well as myself! So many of my free from friends have been sharing their go-to Christmas recipes, I’m sharing the love with some of my faves.
Gluten free Christmas dinner recipes
Christmas roasties are a thing of beauty when done right, and Healthy Living James has gone all the way with his Rosemary Infused Roast Potatoes. Rosemary is the perfect addition to any tray of roasties and I’ll certainly be giving these babies a go! Or for something a bit different, why not try these Gluten & Dairy Free Hasselback Potatoes from Gluten Free Alice?
If you’re planning a ham instead of turkey (my fave!) then you need to give this Slow Roasted Honey Ham from Laura at My Gluten Free Guide a go. It looks like it would melt in your mouth and is perfect for Boxing Day as well. Or for a different take, try my Gluten Free Ginger Beer and Cranberry Glaze Ham recipe I guest posted for one of my favourite shops, Johns of Instow.
And for your side dishes, jazz up your sprouts with these Brilliantly Boozy Brussels Sprouts from Nathalie at The Intolerant Gourmand. And these Honey-Glazed Thyme-Roasted Spring Carrots & Parsnips from Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist also look like a fantastic side dish. And no Christmas Dinner would be complete without some Gluten Free Yorkshire Puddings, like this recipe from Becky at Gluten Free Cuppa Tea.
And if you’re planning a starter for your meal, why not try this gluten and dairy free Carrot and Ginger Soup from Jenna at A Balanced Belly? Or you could try my Gluten Free King Prawn Skewers with Mango, Coriander and Coconut for a light and tasty starter.
Gluten free Christmas desserts
If you want a true show-stopper than my Gluten Free Yule Log is the one! It’s so beautiful and great fun to make if you fancy a baking project. Or if you want something a bit different, you could try this Lemon Meringue Yule Log by Laura at My Gluten Free Guide for a twist on this classic. Or for a gluten and dairy free treat, try this Chocolate and Chestnut Roulade from The Free From Fairy too.
Kate over at Gluten Free Alchemist has a range of delicious desserts to choose from – take your pick! I think the White Chocolate Panna Cotta served with Honey-Roasted Figs & Walnuts looks incredible and super festive! This gluten free Winter Ginger and Pear Trifle also looks fantastic, and the perfect post-Christmas meal treat. And this Gluten Free Salted Caramel Tart from Rebecca at Glutarama looks simply divine!
And if you’re still on the hunt, why not give my Gluten Free Maple Sunrise Cheesecake a go? Or this Gluten Free Baked New York Cheesecake from Becky at Gluten Free Cuppa Tea. Cheesecake is definitely a great shout for a festive dessert everyone will love!
If you want a dessert everyone can nibble on throughout the evening, this Gluten Free Gingerbread House by Jessica’s Kitchen is gorgeous! It would be a great one for kids to help with too.
Edible gluten free Christmas gift ideas
Jenna over at A Balanced Belly has created these beautiful Vegan Cardamom and Orange Chocolate Truffles, which are of course gluten free as well. They look so beautiful and would be perfect to pair with my Gluten & Dairy Free 3-Ingredient Christmas Pudding Truffles for a beautiful box of hand-made gifts. Complete the truffle trio with these 3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles from Healthy Living James which are also vegan and gluten free.
If you want to give a box of baked goods, these Gluten Free Lebkuchen from Becky Excell are an absolute classic, and would look so pretty presented in a nice box to a loved one. And I might not be a fan of the shop-bought macaroons, but these Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons from Copper Confetti look delicious and super easy to make – a great gift idea!
In our household, marzipan always goes down a treat. I might have to make some of the Gluten Free Marzipan Chocolates from Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist. Her Gluten Free Christmas Spiced Star Biscuits also look so pretty and would make a great homemade gift.
Or why not deliver some homemade festive tipple as gifts? This Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Orange Baileys recipe from Rebecca at Glutarama is guaranteed to be a hit. Or my Gluten Free Bread Pudding with Amaretto is another festive treat everyone will enjoy!
