30+ Flourless Sweet Treats

30 flourless sweet treats

This flour free recipe collection includes slices, cakes, cheesecakes and bliss balls, so there is something for everyone. 

I don’t know about you but I’m finding that a bag of flour is about as rare as hen’s teeth and this baker’s gotta bake because baking is my therapy.

Rather than lament the lack of flour in the store, I trawled through the archives and found more than 30 delicious recipes that don’t require any flour, many of which don’t require any baking either. Most of the recipes have both Thermomix and traditional instructions although often all you need is a bowl and a spoon. Win, win!

Most of these recipes require just a handful of everyday fridge and pantry staples and I’ve grouped them by ingredient – oats, rice bubbles, chocolate, biscuits, cream cheese and almond meal – I hope you find something to tickle your fancy! 

How’s your flour stash looking? What’s your favourite flourless recipe?

No Bake Crunchie Cheesecake

A cheesecake that’s so easy you don’t even have to turn the oven on! The chocolate stays chocolatey but the honeycomb melts and goes all caramelly so that when you cut into the cheesecake, you’ll see little holes spouting molten caramelly goodness. It’s pretty special.

Date and Rice Bubble Slice

This slice has minimal refined sugar and if your teeth aren’t really sweet, you can cut out the sugar altogether. The dates add so much natural sweetness and bring a real caramel flavour to the party.

Chocolate Fridge Cake

If a Chocolate Crackle Slice and a Rocky Road had a food baby, this would surely be it. With the crisp rice bubbles, crunchy biscuits, rich chocolate and chewy sultanas, this no bake fridge “cake” really is ridiculously good. This is a great way to use up left over Easter eggs/chocolate or is left over chocolate a paradox?!
