Hanukkah is almost here and I’ve curated eight crazy gluten-free Hanukkah recipes, one for all eight crazy nights!
I curated these gluten-free Hanukkah recipes from some of my favorite and most trusted bloggers and recipe developers around so I know you’ll be in good hands.
Also, please note that these gluten-free Hanukkah recipes have been updated for 2017. I noticed a couple of broken links on my original post – but I’ve updated it and everything is working now.

8 Gluten-Free Hanukkah Recipes:
1. Easy Gluten-Free Donuts from Gluten Free on a Shoestring:
Gluten Free on a Shoestring is one of my favorite GF blogs and Nicole always has the best recipes! Simply use your own gluten-free biscuit dough or Nicole’s recipe, and voila, you have wonderful homemade donuts (add a little jelly in the center and you have traditional sufganiyot or a traditional Israeli donut).
PS – Like how I started this post with dessert first?
(BTW, do you have the book, Gluten Free on a Shoestring? This book is a work of art!)
2. Gluten-Free Carrot Scallion Latkes from Elana’s Pantry:
Say goodbye to boring, starchy latkes thanks to Elana’s recipe for these carrot scallion latkes instead. These are Paleo-friendly too.
Elana is one of my favorite bloggers – I love The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook – highly recommend it!
3. Savory Slow Cooker Brisket:
They say you eat with your eyes and my eyes found this wonderful and simple brisket recipe online by one of my favorite bloggers ever, Tori Avery. I haven’t made it (yet!) but boy does this Savory Slow Cooker Brisket make me crave Hanukkah food!
4. Homemade Applesauce by the Pioneer Woman:
Latkes are traditionally topped with sweet applesauce. Instead of buying it from the store, try this homemade applesauce recipe from one of my favorite foodie celebrities, the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Ree offers beautiful step-by-step photos so you can be certain to do this right!
The Pioneer Woman has a series of great cookbooks – they aren’t GF, but you can easily make swaps.
5. Make Your Own Hanukkah Gelt from Clinton Kelly:
Children love playing with and eating gelt, which is a coin-shaped piece of chocolate wrapped in gold or silver foil. I’m shaking my head now… why hadn’t I thought of this clever idea for making your own Chanukah gelt myself?! Simply melt chocolate of choice and use your mini muffin pan as your gelt mold. Ingenious!
You can also purchase this cute Hanukkah gelt mold plan and add Jewish stars and menorahs to your gelt.
6. Challah by Good For You Gluten Free:
Of course you don’t want to forget a tasty gluten-free challah, especially for the Friday night of Hanukkah! Here’s my awesome gluten-free challah recipe and blog post. I used this challah-shaped mold pan so the challah would hold its shape. Best gluten-free challah ever!!
7. Gluten-Free Rugelach by Gluten Free Girl:
For anyone a little more adventurous and confident in their baking skills, I found this recipe for homemade gluten-free rugelach, a traditional Jewish pastry. My aunt Ayala makes the best rugelach, but I haven’t been able to enjoy it for years. Maybe I’ll try to make some GF rugelach – although, to be honest, I’m not sure I could ever match Ayala’s delicious recipe and technique.

8. Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Kugel:
Of course a Jewish celebration is never complete unless there’s kugel. I buy brown rice and millet ramen noodles from Lotus Foods. These gluten-free ramen noodles are delicious and have a great texture too. Here’s a wonderful recipe for gluten free cinnamon raisin kugel. (You can purchase gluten-free ramen on Amazon.)
There you have it… eight crazy gluten-free Hanukkah recipes for all eight crazy nights of Hanukkah.
