Let’s take a deep dive into these 9 gluten-free cheesecake recipes! Thick, luscious, rich, and just the right amount of sweetness, in our opinion, describes the perfect cheesecake.
1. Gluten-Free New York Cheesecake
If you’re a cheesecake fan, you know that a good New York cheesecake can stand up to almost any variation of the dessert. A New York-style cheesecake relies on a mixture of heavy cream, eggs, cream cheese for a very rich and dense texture.
This recipe is no exception with 2 pounds of cream cheese and 1 pound of sour cream. So, while this is a gluten-free cheesecake, it’s definitely not diet-friendly.
This white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake is easy to make and yet very tasty. The only thing to dislike about a no-bake cheesecake recipe is the waiting part. We recommend you make this the night before you plan to eat it to give the cheesecake adequate time to fully set overnight.
3. No-Bake Toblerone Cheesecake
A great gluten-free cheesecake recipe to make when you don’t have access to an oven. If you’re a fan of Toblerone, this cheesecake recipe should be right up your alley: creamy cheesecake, with smooth Toblerone chocolate and chunks of chewy nougat.
Ideally, you should make this the night before but if you’re in a pinch, 4 hours in the fridge is all you need for the cheesecake to fully set.
4. Easy Baked Cheesecake (Vegan + Gluten-Free)
This cheesecake recipe hits 3 birds with one delicious stone. It’s gluten-free, vegan friendly, and doesn’t use refined sugars.
The almond-oat crust is also great at replicating the taste and texture of a traditional graham cracker crust. Sweet, creamy, and rich, yet perfectly fine for anyone avoiding gluten or looking for a vegan option. And for everyone else, it’ll make them think they’re eating the real thing.
5. Gluten-Free Chocolate Cheesecake
If you’re a fan of cheesecake, you know that it blends well with countless flavors such as strawberry, vanilla, Oreos, salted caramel, and of course, chocolate. This is another no-bake recipe so it’s almost fool-proof which is great if it’s your first time making this iconic dessert.
The base uses desiccated coconut which we think pairs really well with the creamy milk chocolate flavor. However, if you’re not a fan of coconut you can always make a gluten-free almond crust instead.
6. Lemon Cheesecake
This particular recipe is naturally sweetened by the aid of honey and pairs well with the lemon flavor. You can tell when the cheesecake is ready to pull from the oven when the filling is about 75% set but the middle is still wobbly.
7. Award-Winning Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake
If you’re reading this during the holiday season, try giving this recipe a try over its more commonly known pie sibling. The pumpkin, sweet spiciness, pecans, and cinnamon-flavored crust scream fall flavors and is the perfect dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.
And we haven’t even mentioned the dulce de leche topping. This recipe hits all the right spots and it’s perfectly safe to eat if you’re gluten intolerant. You’ll see after that first bite why this is an “award-winning” recipe after all.
8. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
Sweet chocolate chip cookies mixing with thick and rich cream cheese. A great time saver also with the use of boxed chocolate chip mix and the cheesecake filling only comprises of 5 ingredients.
One tip to prevent your cheesecake from cracking is to crack the oven door open after the baking time is up and allowing the cake to cool to room temperature. This way you can keep the cheesecake intact and maintain that perfect shape and sheen when you cut and serve it.
9. No-Bake Layered Blueberry Cheesecake
In place of the cream cheese, cashews are used instead. Soaking them overnight causes the cashews to get super soft and creamy after you blend them which comes pretty close to replicating the typical cheesecake.
To all our readers who suffer from gluten intolerance, don’t think of it as a death sentence for your enjoyment of delicious food. With a little practice and adjustments to certain recipes, you can totally enjoy things such as cheesecake but without the gluten.
