gingerbreadhouse2You don’t have to miss out on making or eating a gingerbread house just because you are gluten-free or have food allergies. Gluten-free allergen-free gingerbread houses can be done! Here are some ideas:

  • Make the one I made last year, using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Bread Mix: Allergen-free gingerbread house
  • Order a gluten-free, allergen-free gingerbread house KIT from A&J Bakery! The Allergen Friendly Gingerbread House Kit is peanut, tree nut, wheat, gluten, soy, egg, dairy, and sesame free. The are all made in a dedicated nut and gluten free facility. The cost for the kit, which includes the gingerbread house pieces, candy and some non-edible decorations is $30 and can be ordered online. Or call them in Cranston, Rhode Island, at (401)228-8696.
  • Order mixes from Jules Gluten-Free, who is offering a holiday special that includes a recipe for a gingerbread house.
  • Follow the recipe for a gluten-free gingerbread house from Jenn Cuisine – it looks great!
  • If your child has egg allergy, use a recipe for allergen-free gingerbread house frosting.

  1. What great ideas! We built our own GF Gingerbread House for the first time this year and it was easy and a lot of fun! We used a recipe from Cake and Commerce and downloaded some templates off of Bob Villa’s website. Here is the link on my blog:


  2. What a beautiful gingerbread house, Alison! I love all the different designs of gingerbread houses. 🙂 Great ideas for folks, too. I just wanted to mention that Kelly over at The Spunky Coconut made an adorable “gingerbread” house out of salt dough with her girls. She colored the dough to look like gingerbread. Very workable material and no allergy concerns.

    Happy Holidays!
