For many, choosing a gluten-free diet is a necessity due to health issues. I do find I feel better if I minimize the amount of foods that contain gluten. You don’t need to feel deprived this holiday season with these yummy treats! Here are some of our favorite gluten-free and vegan sweets we found. Which recipe do you want to try out this holiday season?
Gluten-free and Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Cupcake
A friend made some of these and posted some pictures on her Instagram feed. Anything to do with chocolate draws me in and she was sweet and dropped one off at my doorstep (Thank you Megan!). Our family really enjoyed the mix of chocolates and candy cane and peppermint mix. Plus they looks so pretty! She said she found the recipe on Sarah Bakes Gluten Free. She has a ton of wonderful recipes you might want to check out!
