If you love someone who is gluten-free, the best thing you can do for her this Valentine's Day is to whip up a fantastic gluten-free dessert. After all, if you wine and dine a gluten-free person outside the home, the likelihood of dessert is slim to none. And she needs some dessert!!! Trust me on this. Just be sure to skip the box of chocolatesfor your gluten-free date (hidden gluten, everywhere!) unless you're 100% sure every ingredient is gluten-free.
Luckily removing flour doesn't mean you're stuck with a sub par cake, cookie, or other delight. There are a lot of people out there making sure those of us gf folks don't go hungry during the holidays. So many, in fact, that you could eat gluten-free for every meal if you were so inclined.
Here are five fantastic gluten-free treats for your gluten-free sweet on Valentine's Day.
