Jews around the world celebrate Hanukkah for eight nights. To commemorate this important celebration, I’ve curated a bunch of gluten-free Hanukkah recipes to help you eat well all eight crazy nights. This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosures.
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 2020.
1. Gluten-Free Jelly Donuts (Sufganiyot)
I made these gluten-free jelly donuts using my trusty Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend. They were surprising easy to make, although they do require a little time and effort to get them right. Get the recipe here.
2. Gluten-Free Latkes
3. Savory Beef Brisket
They say you eat with your eyes, and my eyes love a savory brisket with a brown gravy sauce.
4. Homemade Applesauce
Latkes are traditionally topped with sweet applesauce. Instead of buying applesauce 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!
5. Hanukkah Gelt
Children love playing with and eating gelt, which is a coin-shaped piece of chocolate wrapped in gold or silver foil.
You can purchase this Star of David gelt mold plan and these foil wrappers to make your own gelt at home, and here are step by step instructions for making homemade Hanukkah gelt.
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. I used this challah-shaped mold pan so the challah would hold its shape. Best gluten-free challah ever!!
I also love this menorah-shaped challah from Jamie Geller and could watch this video on autoplay all day long!
7. Holiday Cut Out Sugar Cookies
No holiday would be complete without cut-out sugar cookies. But these are no ordinary sugar cookies, they’re gluten-free sugar cookies that don’t spread! You can cut these cookies into the shapes of menorahs, dreidels and Stars of David. Purchase Hanukkah-shaped cookie cutters on Amazon.
Get the delicious gluten-free sugar cookie recipe here.
8. Dill Roasted Salmon
If you’re keeping your Hanukkah celebration dairy-free, you might enjoy making my delicious dill-roasted salmon recipe. It’s light and festive, and perfectly compliments latkes.
9. Hanukkah-Themed Snack Board
This sweet and savory Hanukkah-themed snack board includes a bunch of items I already had lying around my house.
You’ll find the following products Dandies vegan & kosher mini marshmallows, Crunchmaster crackers, fresh blueberries, blue M&Ms, Lilly’s hummus, apples slices, Hanukkah gelt and dreidels (for decor, not for eating).
10. Matzo Ball Soup
While matzo ball soup is traditionally enjoyed over the Passover holiday, it is a beloved traditional Jewish dish that always has a place at my holiday celebrations. Be sure you use gluten-free matzo meal when making this quick and easy soup.
There you have it… all sorts of delicious, gluten-free recipes for all eight crazy nights of Hanukkah. Chag Sameach!
