Gluten-Free Gougeres

Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share this gluten-free gougere recipe with you all!
Gougeres are a classic French cuisine staple, that are often enjoyed as hor d'eouvres. If you haven't tried gougeres before, you should definitely try out this recipe as soon as possible! They are SO delicious, and fairly simple to make! I describe them as a light cheese puff bread. They are airy, cheesy, and crispy on the outside! The only ingredients are eggs, grass-fed butter, gluten-free flour, water, gruyere cheese, and pepper! You will have a hard time believing these are gluten-free; they are perfect!
Onto the recipe!

Gluten-Free Gougeres (yields about 40 gougeres)

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free all purpose flour blend (I used BetterBatter brand)
  • 1/4 cup Zuvii banana flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt 
  • 8 tablespoons grass-fed butter (I used Kerrygold)
  • 3/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese (plus more for sprinkling)
  • 1 cup water
  • 5-6 large eggs
Heat water and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until it comes to a steady boil. Add all of the flour, pepper, and sea salt all at once. Stir vigorously until dough forms a ball. Remove from heat and add to a stand mixer.

Mix dough in a stand mixer using a paddle attachment, until it cools slightly. Add in eggs, one at a time, until dough forms a uniform mixture.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Transfer dough to a piping bag using a round tip. Pipe out small round mounds onto the baking sheet, leaving about 1-2 inches in between each dough mound. Top each mound with a sprinkle of gruyere cheese. Bake for about 22 minutes, or until light in weight and golden brown! Enjoy!
