Top 10 Gluten Free Recipes

This has been such an exciting year. I have learned so much in my gluten free journey and it has been so exciting to share it with My Gluten Free Miami readers.

If you have been around for any length of time you know that you don’t need to live in Miami to hang out on this blog. Just like Miami, it is a melting pot for recipes from all over the globe, as well as information and reviews.

This year 10 recipes really stood out among readers, they are some of my favorites and I’m sure you will find a favorite in here as well!

Number 1: Gluten Free Chicken Piccata with Lemon and Capers

Gluten Free Chicken Piccata

Hands down my families favorite recipe. This Chicken Piccata is so good, if my husband has the choice between a nice restaurant and eating this at home, he will choose the Chicken Piccata. Every. Single. Time. Plus, it is super easy!

Number 2: Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice

Red Beans and Rice

Since I first posted this, so many of my friends have tried it and love it just as much as we do. Plus, it’s a one pot dish! One pot = minimal clean up! The flavors in it are amazing and it makes great leftovers.

Number 3: Gluten Free Mexican Dessert Torte

Gluten Free Mexican Dessert

This Mexican Dessert Torte is really unique, and though I love it, I will admit I was a bit surprised when it was in the Top 10. I guess different is good!

Number 4: Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Biscuits

It doesn’t get much better than these Copy Cat Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I used to make them all the time before I was gluten free and am thrilled at how easy they were to convert to gf. Everyone who tries them, gluten free or not, loves them. You will not regret making them!

Number 5: Tiramisu Gluten Free Truffles

Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles

These truffles contain all the flavors you love in bite-sized balls. Cookies, chocolate, espresso….be careful, they are addicting!

Number 6: Stuffed Acorn Squash

Chicken Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash |

This dish is definitely on the healthier side, but it has fantastic flavor and can easily be made for one, two, or a crowd!

Number 7: Gluten Free Banana Bread with Cinnamon Streusel 

Gluten Free Banana Bread

I love banana bread, but I love crunchy toppings even more. This bread is so good, no one every knows it is gluten free. Super simple and no complex ingredients, it is banana bread the way it should be.

Number 8: Penne with Spicy Vodka Sauce

Penne wih Spicy Vodka Sauce

This dish was originally a restaurant copycat dish. One of those meals you have out, that you come home saying that you could make it better, and then you do. Totally not complicated and will definitely impress!

Number 9: Easy Gluten Free Breakfast Bars with Peanut Butter and Oatmeal

Easy Gluten Free Breakfast Bars

These breakfast bars are on the healthy side. With dried fruit and hidden bananas, you won’t feel guilty about having one of these in the morning!

Number 10: Mini No Bake Lemon Pies

Mini no bake lemon pies, Gluten Free/ Dairy Free Option

I know these are number 10 in the countdown, but this recipe has only been up for a month and it already has surpassed many others. It is a must try! I could eat these crunchy, creamy lemony bites all day!

    I’m torn between the piccata and the truffles, so I think I’m going to have to have both!
