Having just left a party where I passed on both pizza and cookies, on the drive home, I dreamt of desserts I can eat.
So here’s a quick round-up of pins, saves and links I’ve emailed to myself over the past couple of months mostly of gluten-free desserts and sometimes little or no sugar too.
I must’ve known my sweet tooth could not go unsatisfied forever.

This is a good one to keep in your back pocket and when you’re craving warm chocolate chip cookies late at night, cinnamon baked apples might help curb it. Although, I think I’m still gonna have to do something about no more late-night chocolate chip cookie making, it’s kind of a tradition with the women in our family.

We love watching Cook’s Country any time we can catch it and the America’s Test Kitchen book is the staple cookbook in our kitchen. While I can’t say we’ve ever followed a recipe fully, it’s always the best place to start. Consider it the new go-to newlywed kitchen gift.
These Buckeyes are another great weapon in your calm-the-cravings arsenal. You probably have the ingredients and they look pretty quick from start to finish. Maybe even faster than chocolate chip cookies!

I’ve never made coconut macaroons before, but these have jumped to the top of my list and I think might make a less expected contribution to any party you may attend.
Most of my picks have been about one thing – satisfying my own sweet tooth – but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring gluten-free for everyone to enjoy. I think these travel well and are great almost-one-bite desserts.

I’ve had the ingredients to make these raw brownies for awhile now, but I keep eating the dates before I get around to making the cookies. Both the Raw Brownies and Raw Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies sound yum. Plus, no wheat or sugar! It’s a win-win.
