Macro-Friendly Gluten-Free Desserts

Just because the holiday season is over, that doesn’t mean that all treats have to be put away, especially those macro-friendly gluten-free desserts (my favorite!). Starting the new year can (and should!) include treats that are also good for you!

I get a ton of requests for macro-friendly gluten-free recipes, so that’s what I’ve got for you today – starting with one of my favorites: desserts! From cookies to truffles to cookie bowls, there’s a mix of recipes to keep your dessert game exciting and delicious this year!


  • Anytime Mug Cake – Made from real, wholesome ingredients, this Mug Cake is guaranteed to become a favorites. Easy to assemble and perfectly portioned, this mini cake is a must-try when a sweet craving strikes! And, of course, it’ll fit into your macros! 
  • Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies – These chewy Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies are made with chunks of chocolate and walnut. Made without butter, they taste too good to be true, thanks to a special secret (!) ingredient! 
  • Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl – This Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl is incredible. I’ve made it so many times over the years, and I still can’t get enough of it. It’s gluten free, good for you, and won’t break your macros! 
  • No Bake Almond Joy Cookies – These No Bake Almond Joy Cookies are made with just 8 ingredients. They’re also vegan and gluten-free. Whip up a batch and store in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy. My whole family loves these cookies!
