This fantastic recipe post is sponsored by the awesome people at Bob’s Red Mill. Thank you for supporting the brands that help me to create delicious gluten free recipes like this one for you!
Ahhh, Thanksgiving and Christmas are going to be here soon! The season of gratitude and thanks!
2020 has taken all of us on a wild ride, so I think we need a little Christmas (right this very minute!).
WHICH reminds me…
Thanks to my ongoing relationship with Bob’s Red Mill, there are PLENTY of delicious gluten and dairy free dessert recipes on this blog of mine.
Of course, I could have you jumping all over Cotter Crunch to find all of the recipes, but I’m full of goodness, so I’ve got them all here for you. How nice of me. Haha!
Seriously though, my kitchen pantry is stocked with products from Bob’s Red Mill. They have nearly everything you and I might need to make any type of recipe. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
So, when you need certified gluten-free ingredients to make one of the gluten free dairy free desserts I’m sharing below, it’ll be easy to find them!
If your local grocery store doesn’t stock the products you want, you can order them from the Bob’s Red Mill webstore. Shopping from the comfort of your couch… it doesn’t get easier than that!
Oh, and you can buy stocking stuffers, like GIFT CARDS! (just sayin’)
So, I promised you desserts, and here they are!
