The Best Gluten Free Recipes for Easter

You’re sure to find something for everyone in my collection of gluten free recipes for Easter. Are you planning to make a big brunch spread? I have more than got you covered! Keep things simple and put out homemade gluten free bagels, cream cheese, lox, and a fruit salad. Or, whip up a batch of the fluffiest gluten free cinnamon rolls you’ve ever tasted. I love to serve casseroles like a ham and cheese strata or a gluten free French toast casserole that can be put together the night before. Don’t forget lots of freshly brewed coffee!

For dinnertime, I always make a decadent maple-glazed ham and offer a selection of vegetables like mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, and more. Or, I’ll go a bit lighter and make fish the center of my Easter dinner menu. You can even make a meal on one pan if you make my pesto salmon sheet pan dinner! Even better, every single dish is gluten-free.

And of course, we can’t forget dessert. I have so many wonderful springy gluten free dessert options, from a classic carrot cake (seen above), a towering hummingbird cake, a citrus-drench lemon loaf, homemade candy, cookies, and more. You’re sure to find something for everyone in my roundup below.
