Yes! Elimination diet desserts! It does not matter how restrictive your diet is you can still find room for dessert. Most of these recipes are free from gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, legumes, nightshades, soy, corn, and citrus. There may be a few that contain only one of those trigger ingredients but no recipes will contain two or more.
An elimination diet in order to determine food sensitivites and allergens is hard already. There’s no reason to suffer without something sweet once in a while. So please enjoy these elimination diet desserts and share the recipes with all of your friends!
This list is in no particular order, but it does start with my absolute favorite.
Yes, you can make a vegan and gluten free cobbler that will win over any sweet tooth. Typically, blueberry cobbler would also have lemon zest to brighten it up. That’s unacceptable for those avoiding citrus so this recipe uses basil instead.
The basil really adds an impressive depth of flavor to the blueberries which can sometimes be a little boring. Honestly blueberries don’t have much flavor on their own so it’s impressive how this cobbler amps them up.
One of the hardest cravings to ignore on an elimination diet is bread. I was going absolutely crazy without it! Gluten free bread is really difficult already. Add to that the need to avoid dairy, eggs, and nightshades like potato starch and bread feels impossible.
Have no fear! This elimination diet dessert bread will satisfy all of your cravings without adding a single trigger ingredient. The main key to remember in all gluten free baking is to cook it long enough. Invest in a thermometer so you can tell when it’s fully cooked and your gluten free desserts will turn out much better.
This may sound too good to be true but I promis you this is an actual pie that is vegan, gluten free, and everything else elimination diet friendly. It even holds its shape and tastes amazing!
The crust is made from oat flour and the filling and topping uses coconut cream and a little chemistry hack. Xanthan gum is the best cheat for gluten free and egg free bakes. That coconut whipped cream will be just as thick and creamy as any whipped cream you’ve ever had.
If you cannot have nuts you’ll have to avoid this elimination diet dessert or maybe use peanut butter instead, that’s a legume option for you.
If you can have nuts this vegan and gluten free dessert is a rich and chocolatey delight! Chocolate should never be given up on any diet plan. That would be madness. So these chocolate bombs are perfect for getting what you crave without all of the typical baked good ingredients like eggs or milk.
Once again, gluten free baking is hard! But these cookies come together really easily and make a perfect elimination diet dessert or even breakfast. I made mine with two kinds of allergen friendly chocolate chips but you can load them up with any fillings you like.
Banana goes great with shredded coconut,, chocolate, nuts, peanuts, butterscotch, even coffe! Go crazy and customize these cookies to whatever you’re craving most.
I hope you see how desserts can be kept in your diet without disrupting all of the progess you’ve made. Elimination diet desserts may not be ones you’ve had before but with recipes like these you’ll keep them on the menu long after your diet is done.
