Happy {Gluten Free} Thanksgiving

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full Disclaimer here.

The holidays are often a time people allow themselves to indulge a little…or a lot. They reassure themselves their New Year’s resolution will make everything better so they can have just one more here and two more there. Well, this isn’t so easy if you have dietary restrictions for health reasons beyond weight control.

I’ve mentioned how my family is gluten free although none of us have a severe allergy to gluten. If you want to learn more about how removing gluten from our diets has positively impacted us, please read 100+ Gluten Free Resources. The fact that you’re reading this article tells me you already are gluten free or perhaps you’re cooking for someone else this year who is. Regardless of your reason, I hope you can enjoy some of the following amazing gluten free recipes!

There are a lot of posts out there putting together gluten free Thanksgiving recipes, and I appreciate a good roundup post, but you don’t need to look through 10 different cranberry sauce recipes, do you? Duh, they’re gluten free! They’re cranberries!

Anywho, I’ve pulled together some of the classics along with some nontraditional dishes that everyone’s sure to love.



Gluten Free Crescent Rolls by GF Jules : Ok, these may be more of a side dish to some but I could eat 12 before the meal begins.

Pumpkin Dip by Deliciously Sprinkled : Such a good idea to pair with some gluten free crackers like Simple Mills Naturally Gluten-Free Almond Flour Crackers.

Easy Spinach Artichoke Dip by Cakescottage : Game. Changer.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Biscotti by Gluten Free on a Shoestring : This could double as a dessert, but my sweet tooth says it’s acceptable before dinner. Serve with some coffee to get everyone pumped for the actual meal.

Spiced Pumpkin Hummus Dip by Savory Tooth : You could find me dipping The Best Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies (by Bless Her Heart Y’all) cookies in this.

Puppy Chow Recipe by Joy Food Sunshine : Can also be eaten during and after the meal…right?

Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole by Joy Food Sunshine : If it says “healthy” in the recipe title you can get seconds (or thirds), so we like those.
