Gluten-Free Lebkuchen

$35.00 Sale Save
Flavor Assorted

Our signature Nuremberg-style lebkuchen is now available in a gluten free version! Our gluten-free lebkuchen tastes like our original lebkuchen, with a similar texture. You'll find our gluten-free variety to be slightly chewier, owing to the small amount of rice flour used in place of wheat flour. The edible wafer ("Backoblate") is also chewier.

We produce our gluten-free lebkuchen using equipment shared with wheat-containing foods. However, we take gluten-free production seriously and follow a protocol to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. See FAQs tab below for more info.

Gluten-Free Lebkuchen is also available in select tins here.

Are your gluten-free lebkuchen certified gluten-free?

No, we produce them in the same facility and on shared equipment with our regular lebkuchen which contains wheat.

However, we take gluten-free production seriously and follow a protocol to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. This includes baking gluten-free lebkuchen on dedicated production days (i.e., never on the same day with regular lebkuchen); cleaning and sanitizing all equipment and wares prior to use; and testing samples from the day to check that they contain less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten.

Why isn't the gluten-free lebkuchen always available?

As mentioned above, we produce gluten-free lebkuchen on dedicated production days. As the demand is still relatively low, it only makes sense for us to offer it when we have a sufficient number of pre-orders to justify allocating a full production day.

Will you bake gluten-free lebkuchen closer to the holidays?

Unfortunately, there is not currently enough demand for the gluten-free lebkuchen to justify allocating a full production day during our peak season. Therefore, we've only been able to offer it in our shoulder season, usually in October when our season opens, and in January after the holiday rush.

Spreading the word about our gluten-free lebkuchen will certainly help us get closer to being able to offer it more regularly. Thanks for any support!

Can I choose a deferred ship date for gluten-free lebkuchen?

We advise against selecting a deferred ship date for gluten-free lebkuchen, as we always prefer to get our product to customers as soon as it's baked. However, it does have a shelf life of several months, so it will be fine to eat. But it does lose some moisture over time. As long as this is understood, you can choose a deferred ship date -- please just confirm your understanding in the Order Notes at checkout.

Can you freeze the lebkuchen?

In our experience,Oblaten Lebkuchensuch as Nuremberg lebkuchen freeze well. For best results, carefully wrap each lebkuchen individually in plastic food wrap and place in an airtight container in the freezer.

If possible, thaw lebkuchen in the refrigerator before bringing to room temperature. Defrosting the lebkuchen slowly helps preserve the texture. For chocolate-covered lebkuchen in particular, this phased defrosting also prevents drastic changes in temperature that may affect the chocolate’s appearance and texture

Can’t stop after one

They are just delicious,, both the plain and the chocolate covered—I loved them so much that I ordered more for my friends for Valentine’s day.


A friend gifted me some Leckerlee gluten free Lebkuchen for Christmas, and it was so good that I signed up for notifications so I could jump on any opportunities to buy more. I’m now happily working my way through 4 more boxes. :-)

Thankful Fan
Thank you for doing Gluten Free!

Your Gluten free Lebkuchen was delicious! We enjoyed it so much at Christmas that we have made 3 more orders! Embarrassing but true! This brought back the memories of the Lebkuchen my grandmother & aunt made before I knew I had Celiac! Thank you for doing gluten free Lebkuchen so that my family and I could have a very special treat!
