Best Gluten-Free Desserts (2014)

Bluestem Bar

Once upon a time the words "gluten-free" and "dessert" dared not exist in the same sentence, but the ingredients for gluten-free baking have come a long way since then, and the bakers at Bluestem Bar who use them have figured out how to blend, crush, and whip them into pure magic. From the caramel-drenched, rich and chocolaty Milky Way tart, to the Swede-approved lingonberry almond torte and delicate toasted coconut cake made with layers of sweet white chocolate custard, these are treats that you would never know were made with alternative flours and, in many cases, non-dairy products. It's not just one or two courtesy offerings either. Bluestem has nearly a dozen gluten-free desserts on the menu, and their vegan frozen custard is surprisingly smooth, creamy, and goes great with any dessert, even the gluten-ful ones.
