The holidays are fast approaching and I don’t know about you, but they seem to sneak up on me every single year. This year, I decided to get ahead with my planning and start looking for recipes that suit my gluten-free dairy-free diet early. But once I got started, I realized how useful this could be for YOU too, so I got to work on my next 101 gluten-free dairy-free recipe roundup – this one is dedicated to all things holiday!

If you want to stick with your gluten-free dairy-free diet over the holiday season and continue to feel your best, there are so many great recipes out there for you. I’ve done my best to hand-select recipes that are not only on the healthier side (sorry, it’s the health coach in me), but are super flavorful, and are good replacements for some of your favorite dishes – only gluten-free dairy-free versions of the recipes.

One thing I noticed as I was picking out these recipes and going through all of them, that the substitutions that I share in all my recipe roundups are almost entirely the same Replace butter for vegan butter or coconut oil, omit cheese, replace all-purpose flour with gluten-free 1:1 measure flour blend, use gluten-free oats, and when buttermilk is called for – make your own using dairy-free milk and a dash of apple cider vinegar. If you follow those rules as you’re finding your own recipes, you’ll be able to make any ‘normal’ recipe a gluten-free dairy-free one.

My goal for this recipe roundup is to make this your one-stop resource in finding recipes you can actually make and enjoy this holiday season. In this gluten-free dairy-free holiday recipe roundup, I’ve divided these 101 recipes into 10 different categories: breakfast, appetizers, main courses, Thanksgiving, Christmas, crockpot, side dishes, vegetables, holiday drinks, and holiday desserts. I hope that as you’re making your holiday menus over the next few months, this post will become a super valuable resource for you. Alright, let’s get to the recipes, yeah?

And they’re made into sweet little macaron cookie sandwiches with a delicious dairy-free chocolate ganache. What could be better?

95. Gluten-free Apple Spice Cake

Gluten-free apple spice cake is great for an alternative Thanksgiving dessert if you’re sick of (or want extra options in addition to) pumpkin pie. These are super simple to make and only require one bowl and no mixer. Hands up for those of us who like doing less dishes around the holidays!!

96. Best Paleo Buckeyes

These paleo buckeyes are a healthier version of the traditional peanut butter holiday cookie with way less sugar – and guilt. These come together with just 5 ingredients (plus a chocolate coating with 2 more ingredients). Simple, healthy, delicious. I’m sold.

97. Peppermint Cookie Bark

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of cookie bark before, but I’m not sure why not. This recipe looks divine. Instead of chocolate layered on more chocolate – this recipe is all kinds of goodness stuck together with a chocolate bark. Chocolate cookies and peppermint are piled on this chocolate bark into a seriously yummy treat. Make some to share – or don’t, because this one looks amazing.

98. Big Chewy Paleo Gingerbread Cookies

These big chewy gingerbread cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and just scream holiday goodness. Enjoy these tasty cookies in just under 30 minutes. Best of all, these have no refined sugar!

99. Easy Dairy-free Fudge

Fudge is one of those simple holiday go-to recipes that people love to make around the holidays, but without the gluten and dairy, this one can get a little tricky. Try this dairy-free fudge recipe – and make it your way (with or without nuts). Be sure to use dairy-free chocolate chips in this one!

100. Gingerbread Dairy-free Paleo Cheesecake Bars

Gingerbread and cheesecake got together and made this amazing mashup of gingerbread cheesecake bars. These have a crunchy cookie-like base, and a cheesecake on top that tastes just like gingerbread with ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. How can you go wrong there?

101. Dairy-free Sugar Cookies

Need a basic sugar cookie recipe to create with your kids or to share with the people you love? Try this gluten-free and dairy-free version that’s great for cutouts of any shape and size you wish.

As you can see, you definitely can stick to your gluten-free dairy-free diet this holiday season from Thanksgiving all the way through to the New Year. There are so many great options for you – and substitutions when you need them to make this your best holiday yet. Best of all, you know that when you stick with a diet that makes you feel your best, you won’t have to spend days in the middle of the festivities recovering from being overloaded with gluten and dairy. You can actually enjoy all that’s going on and feeling good in your skinny jeans all season long.
