The Best Gluten Free Halloween And Fall Recipes

Since it's pretty much almost Halloween, I thought it would be good to share some of the best gluten-free Halloween and Fall recipes I've found. I wanted to cover pretty much every category you may want for this time of year so I'm sure it will be helpful to you. All the recipes I chose to feature in this post are fairy easy and don't require tons of crazy ingredients you have to go out and search for. I don't like recipes with a laundry list of ingredients and I'm sure you don't either. These are all simple gluten-free recipes you can make as well as some Halloween info to help.


Breakfast:

Gluten-Free Paleo Pancakes (5 ingredients)
This recipe is awesome for any morning during October or November. The best part is that it's extremely easy to make and it's gluten-free! You only need 5 ingredients which makes it even better. This is definitely a recipe you should try!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Crepes
If there's anything that's better than pancakes to me, then it might be crepes. This recipe uses a little more ingredients than the pumpkin pancake recipe above. However, the ingredients are simple and the recipe is very easy to make! If you want to have something special and gluten-free for Halloween in the morning, then this is definitely a great recipe to try out!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (Paleo)
This recipe comes from Brittany over at Real Sustenance! Her recipes are some of my favorite since they are so easy to make and they are amazing too. This is one example of the many gluten-free pumpkin recipes she has and it can probably be used as a dessert or snack too. The ingredients are simple and the recipe is easy. It's also paleo as well which might be even better for a lot of you.

Homemade Gluten-Free Pumpkin Butter
Pumpkin butter can really be used for a bunch of different things! I have never had it before but I'd imagine it would be very good on gluten-free breads or toast or even on tons of different fruit as well! This recipe is extremely easy to make and is one that needs very few ingredients. It can be used for so many things and it would be great to set out as a dip for a Halloween party too.

Homemade Gluten-Free Pumpkin Seed Candy
This is such a great idea that can be used for a lot of different things. If you are looking for some healthy and tasty Halloween treats to give to your kids instead of candy then this is perfect! It only needs 4 ingredients and is pretty much 100% allergy friendly if the right butter is used. This is a great healthier alternative to candy and I'm sure it would be great for your kids or to give out at a party.

Fun Halloween Themed Treats:

Ghost Bananas and Pumpkin Oranges
This is by far one of my favorite ideas I found! If you want to try and make healthy eating for your kids fun then this is perfect. All you do is get oranges and chopped up celery to make the pumpkins as shown in the picture. For the bananas all you would do is cut a banana in half and use little chocolate chips to make faces. Extremely cheap and extremely simple to do. Not to mention it might be a healthy alternative to all the candy kids would be getting on Halloween instead!



Halloween Themed Orange Fruit Cup
Another fun and easy way to make eating healthy on Halloween fun! What you will need for this is some oranges as well as the fruit of your choice like apples, strawberries, pineapple, etc. This takes a little more work to prepare but would pay off big in the end after you complete it. There are step by step instructions through the link that make it very easy to figure out and make!

Healthy Candy Corn Snack (Not dairy free + don't use Candy Corn)
I know candy corn is one candy we cannot have while being gluten-free. That's why I thought this would be a great recipe to share with you all since it kind of is a fun way to have candy corn. It's very simple and only needs 3 ingredients but the only thing is that it is not dairy free because of the whipped cream. However you can make your own Dairy Free Whipped Cream and use it for this recipe if you want to get creative!

Desserts:

Vegan Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie (Dairy and Egg Free)
I had to start off the dessert section with pumpkin pie of course. I searched for a long time on the internet and came across tons of complicated gluten-free pumpkin pie recipes that just looked like too much work. This was the best one I found and it's vegan as well which is amazing! Definitely check this recipe out.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Rice Crispies
One thing I know a lot of people miss is Rice Crispies since the store bought brand sadly contains malt. But what the store bought brand doesn't have is pumpkin flavored Rice Crispies! That's why I thought this recipe was very unique and different since there is else really like it. It doesn't need too many ingredients and I'm pretty sure it can be made dairy free too.
