It seems there are baked goods everywhere this time of year. At the office, at school, at family gatherings, in shop windows. 

These tasty treats are hard to resist, even for the most disciplined healthy eaters. It is the holiday season, after all!

But for those with wheat allergies, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or other dietary restrictions - there’s often little opportunity for such indulgence. Which can lead to feeling isolated or left out  of holiday traditions. 

That’s why the week before Christmas is recognized as gluten-free baking week!

Luckily, these days it’s easy to find good gluten free flours in just about any grocery store. 

But who has the time to go looking for recipes this time of year?

That’s why we put together this list of our favorite gluten free cookie recipes - plus a bonus recipe from one of our Evidation team members! Try them out and let us know on Facebook or Instagram how you liked them!
