Summer is the time to put on your sandals and stay outside until the sunset. One fun way to enjoy a warm summer night is to host a party with several delectable finger foods. Better yet, make all of those finger foods gluten-free so you can please all of your guests and their dietary preferences. Those with gluten intolerance know that potlucks and parties can sometimes be a downer if you have to pass on yummy-looking dish after dish. Not at this party! Try these delicious finger food recipes, all of which are 100% gluten-free!
1. Vegan Puttanesca Panzarottis
These crispy, golden-fried pizza dough bites are filled with ooey-gooey cheese, tomato sauce, and spinach. It’s like a vegan version of a calzone — a crisp, doughy pillow with a warm center that oozes with delicious flavor and texture.
2. Chickpea Fries
These delicious fries are very easy to make and are similar to polenta fries, except the recipe author calls for pan-frying instead of baking them. These large, spicy fries are sure to be a hit at your next party. Serve them with some yummy dipping sauce.
3. Raw Vegan Habanero Pepper Crackers
Bust out the hummus and salsa for these amazing crackers that are not only gluten-free, but also raw. They’re packed with sunflower seeds, cashews, and almonds, so your guests will get a dose of some healthy nut fats.
4. Raw Vegan Mince Pies
These mini pies have a soft, crumbly crust and a delicious filling made with sultanas, figs, currants, and orange zest. The cashew-lemon-coconut butter icing tops it all off in smooth, creamy perfection. The end product of these little pies is gorgeous and perfect to show off on a buffet table.
5. Onion Rings
Onion rings are a favorite diner and fast food option, but they’re not the healthiest choice. This onion ring recipe is not bad for you like many restaurant versions. The World’s Healthiest Onion Rings call for good-for-you ingredients like onion, almond milk, and coconut flour.
6. Grapefruit Coriander Fennel Bites
Your shopping list is amazingly sparse for this recipe. Get fennel, grapefruit, macadamia nuts, coriander, and sea salt, and you’re ready to cook. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised by the flavor profile in these bites.
7. Peanut Butter Cookies with Dark Chocolate Drizzle
Everyone can enjoy these cookies, which are a gluten-free take on the classic peanut butter cookie. This rendition calls for almond flour, salt, sugar, Earth Balance Sticks, vanilla, peanut butter, and the best part: vegan dark chocolate.
8. No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls
Since you don’t have to cook or bake anything for this treat, it’s a great choice to whip up in a hurry for a party, especially if the oven and stove are occupied with your other vegan finger food creations.
9. Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting
Use rice flour for these gluten-free cupcakes. The delicious frosting is made of sunflower spread, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and coconut milk.
10. Totally Wow Raw Brownies with Pecan Nuts
Mostly everyone likes brownies, and these gluten-free ones are baked with pecan nuts for some extra crunch.
