Looking for child-friendly gluten free baking recipes? Well, look no further because I’ve got you covered!
Having the children home for a long period of time can prove stressful for many parents – so why not get together for some family baking?
Kids will absolutely love putting together these recipes – it’ll keep them occupied, teach them valuable life skills and give them a sense of achievement.
Plus you could all enjoy a family picnic at the end to tuck into your treats!
Gluten free baking for children
I’ve got lots of child-friendly gluten free baking recipes for children on the blog, and I thought the best idea would be to round them up in one place.
Of course, you can find all the recipes under my baking section, but these are some of the simplest to follow.
From gluten free cupcakes to cookies, swirly chocolate bark to stained glass window biscuits, there’s enough to keep you occupied for weeks!
Make sure you get some aprons at the ready though, as be warned, baking with children can often be messy!
But this is what makes it fun, right!?
Child-friendly gluten free baking recipes
All of these child-friendly gluten free baking recipes use storecupboard basics you can buy in the supermarket.
For most of them, a must will be:
Gluten free flour (plain and self-raising)
Unsalted butter (or Stork baking block for dairy free)
Other handy gluten free ingredients
You’ll also probably want a good stock of:
Gluten free sprinkles
Chocolate and chocolate chips
Once you’ve managed to prepare the storecupboard with these basics, you’ll find a lot of the recipes use the same ingredients, meaning you’ll already have everything you need to get stuck in.
