Easter weekend is almost upon us and if you’re still looking for some fabulous gluten free Easter recipes, I thought I’d put them all in one handy post for you! I know a lot of people give up chocolate for Lent, so those of you who have might be pleased to know that pretty much all of these are chocolate-based!
And also, an apology to those of you who are gluten and dairy free. Sadly these all contain dairy, but I hope that you might be able to adapt some of them, and in each recipe I think this is possible, I’ve given some suggestions of how to do this. So whether you’re after something to make with children, decadent Easter brownies or even Easter gift ideas, here are some gluten free Easter recipes to get you started!
Gluten free Creme Egg brownies
If you’re going to make something classic, it has to be my gluten free Creme Egg brownies. Fudgy and delicious, they taste insane and also look so cute with half a Cadbury’s Creme Egg in each slice. I dare you to see if you can share a batch! Find the recipe for my gluten free Creme Egg brownies here.
