Gluten-Free Desserts My Kid Will Actually Eat

My son Kai has been gluten-free for over a year now. The transition for the most part was rather easy — except for when it comes to desserts. He wants to eat what everyone else is eating. Here are some ideas of that have my son's approval. I hope your child enjoys them too.

1. No-Marshmallow Rice Crispy Treats: Substitute brown rice syrup for marshmallows and add a teaspoon of vanilla for a crispy treat your kid will love. Drizzle on melted chocolate for extra gooiness. Get the recipe at Busy But Healthy.

2. Gluten-Free Brownies: This mouth-watering recipe uses the less processed date sugar as a substitute for sugar and raw cacoa, which is loaded with living enzymes, instead of cocoa. It's a gluten-free kid favorite. Get the recipe at Handmade by Kelly.

3. Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Fudge: A combo of coconut oil, peanut number, cocoa powder, maple syrup and whey protein, this fudge concoction looks out of this world. Get the recipe at Southern in Law.

4. Funfetti Cupakes: Perfect for a special occasion like a birthday party, these funfetti cupcakes will be the wish for any gluten-free kid. Yes, there is sugar, especially in the frosting — but everyone can have a special treat every now and then right? Get the recipe at Em the Baker.

5. Gluten-Free Doughnuts: Score! These treats are corn-, dairy- and gluten-free — a hole in one! Plus, it has a chocolate glaze recipe included. Get the recipe at Free Eats Food.
