A Very Spooky Gluten-Free Halloween
Even though Halloween is technically one calendar day, it’s those preceding weeks filled with festivities that are the real treat! From haunted houses and corn mazes to pumpkin carving and costume making (or shopping), the days of October are never short of excitement. Halloween is also a great time to enjoy Fall-specific meals/goodies and while it might seem like options are limited within gluten-free perimeters, this is certainly not the case! From party treats to candy, below are some ideas to have a spookily delicious gluten-free Halloween!
Halloween Muffin Cupcakes

Jack-O-Lantern Snickerdoodle Cookies
Our Snickerdoodle Cookies provide the perfect base for Jack-O-Lantern cookies. Using gluten-free icing to create your own Jack-O-Lantern face, be it scary or goofy!
Sweet Apple Pizza
Go bobbing for apples and use them to create a deliciously different pizza. Slice or dice the apples and then mix them with butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and Udi’s Gluten Free Granola. Spread over Udi’s Pizza Crust and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Voila! Instant smiles on everybody!
And, of course, candy!
For gluten-free candy options, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has a great and comprehensive guide. It thoroughly explains which candies are gluten free (and which of the options are made in a plant that contains wheat) and provides the contact information for the company that manufactures each item. As always, it should be used as a guide and you should still check the ingredient list.
