Welcome back to another week of Allergy Free Wednesdays!
A collection of yumminess that is aimed at making it easier for you to create healthy, allergy free foods for you and your family.
There is no “clear rule” against including processed ingredients in your submission (but we hope you are moving in that direction :-)). So…occasionally you will find some “whole foodie undesirables” in the entries.
What to do if you see processed foods and don’t want them?:
- White or brown sugar? Sub in sucanat, or honey or an acceptable sugar free sweetener. Get help subbing in my post on Substituting Sweeteners in Baking and Cooking
- Chocolate Chips? Sub in my Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips (new & improved version coming soon!)
- Others? Don’t think you’ll find many, but ask away if need be. (I see an entry this week for a cake that looks incredible but uses PB cups – I have a great healthy sub for that – Healthy “Almost Reese’s!“
So—-welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW). AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.
Your weekly submissions will be shared on 7 blogs! Additionally, each hostess will feature a favorite recipe(s) from the week before. Please visit each blog to see their features! Your hostesses are:
- Tessa @ Tessa the Domestic Diva
- Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry
- Nancy @ Real Food Allergy Free
- Amber @ The Tasty Alternative
- Michelle @ The Willing Cook,
- Janelle @ Gluten Freely Frugal
- and–Me :-).
Wondering What You Can Link Up on Allergy Free Wednesday?
My Favorites from Last Week (with substitution ideas)~
Let me first explain – I took my oldest son off grains this week and he helped me pick the favorites.
It wasn’t easy – but for that reason, all my favs this week are grain free :-).
Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream from Welcoming Kitchen
Nothing needed to sub here but I would be using either my Easiest Almond Milk Ever, Homemade Coconut Milk or
Homemade Rice Milk (not this for my grain free son, of course!)
Carrot Cake Pancakes from Gluten-Free Happy Tummy
I would be using the stevia or perhaps my Homemade Liquid Stevia or xylitol for sweetening. And if you’re not grain free,
you can use my DIY Powdered Egg Replacer instead of eggs. I think these sound wonderful, but I would be using the creamy sauce for sure.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream from Live Free Gluten-Free
I would be using Homemade Nut or Seed Butter and carob and most likely stevia, Homemade Liquid Stevia or another candida-friendly sweetener.
and Readers’ Favorites
Cake Batter Mug Cake from Writing in White
I would be using a candida-friendly sweetener, my Homemade Egg Replacer and Homemade Chocolate / Carob Chips.
And I would be multiplying this recipe by at least 4 and making it in an 8×8 pan.
There are good reasons to ditch your microwave – we’ll talk about that soon, hopefully :-)!
and Gluten and Dairy-Free Monkey Bread from Non-Dairy Queen
I would use Homemade Egg Replacer and a candida-friendly sweetener and a whole-food fat instead of the spread.
Also, most likely I wouldn’t use white rice flour. I’m sure my bread would be more dense, but we tend to avoid the white flours here.
I can’t wait to see what you all have this week!
