Here is a small collection of baking ideas for christmas eve. All recipes are gluten free and most of them vegan. Maybe for a girls baking night in or a chilled 23th december baking evening. They are more on the healthy side, celiac friendly and easy to make.
1. Christmas pudding
Starting of with the most fancy spancy recipe. You can find it on deliciouslyella. She also published her own cookbook which, by the way, is a great gift idea for anyone who is trying to incorporate healthy eating into their lifestyle.
2. Gingerbread Men
Feasting on fruit is a great vegan food blog and has lots of simple and great recipes and instructional videos. I basically saved everything. Here you can find a gluten free and vegan gingerbread recipe for the holidays.
3. Chocolate Almond Cake by Paul Hollywood
I think you can never go wrong with a chocolate cake on christmas eve. It is gluten free but non vegan. You can find the recipe here. You can find his baking video here. In his video he instructs to heat your oven to 160˚C instead of 180˚C. I guess Waitrose made a mistake there. I would actually swap out the double cream for coconut milk but this would also give the genache another flavor and leave it less shiny. OR you skip forward to recipe
idea number 4- the healthy version of a creamy rich chocolate cake.
4. Double Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroon Tart
You can find tons of healthy cooking and baking ideas on ohsheglows. Angela also brought out here own cookbook which again is a great gift idea for healthy cuisine lovers. You can find her double dark chocolate tart recipe here.
5. Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint cookies are one of my holiday faves. Last year I was literally obsessed with them. We used chocolate instead of raspberries. Either way you can choose whatever filling you feel like choosing. Here you can find the gluten free recipe version by Angela.
