Gluten Free Profiteroles

gluten free profiteroles

Profiteroles are a classic French dessert that are typically made with choux pastry and filled with whipped cream or custard. While traditional profiteroles are not gluten-free due to the wheat flour used in the pastry, you can still enjoy this delicious dessert with a few modifications. Here’s how to make gluten-free profiteroles.


For the choux pastry:

  • 1/2 cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 2 large eggs

For the filling:

  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp of powdered sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water, butter, and salt to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Once the mixture is boiling, add the gluten-free flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring vigorously after each addition, until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  6. Spoon the choux pastry mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip.
  7. Pipe the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, forming small balls about the size of a cherry.
  8. Use a wet finger to smooth any peaks or rough edges on the pastry.
  9. Bake the profiteroles in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are puffed and golden brown.
  10. Remove the profiteroles from the oven and let them cool completely on the baking sheet.
  11. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  12. Cut a small hole in the bottom of each profiterole and use a piping bag to fill them with the whipped cream.
  13. Arrange the profiteroles on a serving platter and dust them with powdered sugar.


Making gluten-free profiteroles is easier than you might think, and the end result is a delicious and impressive dessert that everyone can enjoy. With a few simple substitutions, you can still achieve the same light and airy texture of traditional choux pastry without any gluten.
