Confession: We secretly love Passover’s “no grains for eight days” rule. While the ancient tradition can be a tedious one, it can also stand as an open invite for a little dietary spring cleaning (veggie-up!). But what happens when that mid-holiday sweet tooth strikes? Dry, dusty Passover sponge cake again? Not on our watch. Dig into one of these dreamy Passover desserts instead.
Free of all the holiday no-go’s — wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt — each of these clean dessert recipes is everything we want always, but especially during Passover. Whether you’re celebrating the holiday or simply looking for a good, grain-free baking project, take a peek and tell us your fave!
