Gluten-Free Cookies For A Tasty And Healthy Halloween


When you adhere to a gluten-free diet, it can be difficult to celebrate holidays the same way as everyone else. Thankfully, our favourite culinary geniuses have given us a myriad of tasty treats to make Halloween snacking an absolute dream. Whether or not you subscribe to the idea of trick-or-treating, we think it's a great idea to make yourself a mixed bag of treats - from gluten-free cookies to everything in between. Here are our faves!

Despite what Demi Lovato thinks, there are numerous reasons one might choose to live a gluten-free diet. Research shows that sufferers of celiac disease see significant improvement in their digestive problems, most notably bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gas, and fatigue when they adhere to a gluten-free diet. Additionally, a gluten-free diet can also help to control chronic inflammation, as well as boosting one's energy and aiding with weight loss.

No matter your thoughts on Halloween and the time-honoured tradition of trick-or-treating, we like to think that everybody deserves a treat! Even better when it's made healthier, and readily available for those of all dietary requirements - gluten-free and alike. Try your hand at baking some gluten-free cookies with nut butters or making some nut-butter balls; and if cooking isn't your cup of tea, go straight to the source by picking up Seven Tea One's amazing assortment of gluten-free cookies.

HealthySu's Almond Butter goes perfectly in the making of all your favourite gluten-free cookies. Coconut cashew butter - an absolute dream from HealthySu Kitchen is an incredible way to add depth, texture, and flavour to your gluten-free cookie recipes!

The Great Nut Butter Bake Off is here to stay!

Get Your Baking Game On

Need a weekend activity that's well worth your time and effort? Allow us to suggest spending some hours pottering about in the kitchen, and getting your culinary game on. Bring together an assortment of nut butters and some fantastic gluten-free recipes for the ultimate reward: delicious nibbles that will neither break the bank, nor your dietary requirements.

The Good Fat Co's Almond Butter presents the perfect opportunity to make easy, healthy nibbles!

Nut butters are more than just spreading! Use in a variety of baked goods for optimum yum.

These cashew butter cookies from DETOXINISTA are made with only seven ingredients, and are oh-so-easy - and just as satisfying to make! We especially love them as high-energy snacks on the go, and love the way they provide that added burst of energy when we need them the most. Ditto, for these almond rice krispy balls from The Good Fat Co.

Seven Tea One's dark chocolate gluten free cookies are an amazing treat that will make any Halloween event an absolute blast!

When you don't want to bake at all, there's Seven Tea One's dark chocolate gluten free cookies.

A Gluten-Free Cookie Worth Every Bite

If spending time in the kitchen really isn't your jam, there's an easier (and might we say, equally delicious) route to take, yet. With numerous gluten-free options for baked goods available in the market these days, it pays off to do your research, and take a look at the brands, their ingredients, their processes, and their beliefs to ensure you're getting the best of all worlds. Seven Tea One's range of gluten-free cookies are not only delicious and crafted with local ingredients - the brand is also a renowned local social enterprise that provides opportunities, training, and fair wages to underserved and differently-abled communities. If that's not a win, we don't know what is!

And if cookies aren't your cup of tea, opt for Cocova's dark chocolate-covered nuts instead!

In the mood for something chocolatey instead? Cocova's Cheeky dark chocolate coated hazelnuts are an amazing snack to fill your Halloween bundles with! Say hello to the royalty of healthy snacks! Nourish and Nibbs' mixed fruit nibbs are as beautiful as they are delicious, and pack a punch with every bite!

Non-cookie alternatives to snacking this Halloween season.

When Cookies Aren't An Option, Go For Fruit

Not all snacks were made equal, and we wholly understand this notion. For those who suffer from nut allergies, and are yet beholden to a gluten-free diet, there's Nourish & Nibbs' mixed fruit nibbs. These dehydrated fruit slivers offer punch and flavour in every bite - way more than one would imagine. And if you think dehydrating fruit takes all the nutrients out of them, think again! When correctly done, the dehydration process retains all the colour, nutrients, and flavour of the fruit, which means you'll be getting every last bit of goodness from the fruit without needing to peel, dice, and chop. Halloween candies? Try halloween nibbs instead!
